Jeep® in the Movies is Now Playing at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Walter P. Chrysler Museum, in Auburn Hills, Mich., is spotlighting Jeep® in the Movies featuring two celebrated vehicles: the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon featured in Paramount Pictures', Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that co-starred in the Paramount release, Sahara.

Running through July 27, Jeep in the Movies kicks off the Unique Vehicle Pairs Spotlight series of production and concept duos that will be temporarily exhibited on the Museum's second level.

The 2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon - dubbed the "Tomb Raider Jeep" - was the first customized model to appear in a feature film. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life is based on the extreme adventures of virtual game heroine Lara Croft, played by Angelina Jolie.

In The Cradle of Life, British archaeologist Croft teams up with former Marine turned mercenary Terry Sheridan (played by Gerard Butler) to find Pandora's Box, the object from ancient legends containing one of the deadliest plagues on Earth. The key to finding the Box - before the evil Nobel Prize-winning scientist Jonathan Reiss (played by Ciaran Hinds) does - is hidden in the mysterious Cradle of Life, a magical luminous orb.

In one dramatic scene, Croft parachutes into the back of the "Tomb Raider Jeep."

Visitors will get a close look at such vehicle modifications as a roll cage with grab bars, a skid plate with simulated HID lighting and an interior with specially designed gauges, shifters, instrument panel, console and door trim. The vehicle also features a host of aftermarket components such as bumpers, wheels with bead locks, suspension lift and riveted fender flares.
