When Lara Croft's daredevil heroics come to the big screen in this summer's "Tomb Raider," they'll be set to the sounds of U2, Nine Inch Nails, Outkast and other A-listers.

A remix of U2's "Elevation" will be the first single from the soundtrack, which is set for a June 5 release, according to Elektra Records. In the video for the song, shot earlier this month, an "evil" U2 kidnaps the Edge. He is then rescued by Angelina Jolie, who plays Lara Croft in the film adaptation of the popular video game (see "'Evil' U2, Angelina Jolie Co-Star in Clip for 'Tomb Raider' Soundtrack").

Nine Inch Nails contribute a new cut, "Deep," which will be the album's second single, and Missy Elliott and Nelly Furtado team on a remix of Elliott's "Get Ur Freak On" (see "Missy Elliott, Nelly Furtado Get Freaky").

Other new material on the soundtrack includes Outkast's "Speed Ballin'," Basement Jaxx's "Where's Your Head @," Groove Armada's "Edge Hill," BT's "The Revolution Will Be Televised," and the Chemical Brothers' "Bounce." Fatboy Slim contributes a remix of "Illuminata," with an appearance by Bootsy Collins.

"Tomb Raider" hits theaters on June 12.
