In 2018, the game film Tomb Raider with Alicia Vikander appeared in the role as the adventurous Lara Croft. A sequel to this movie would be released in March 2021. But it appears this timeline is nog longer achievable.
During an interview with Good Morning America, Vikander stated that she hopes she can attend the shootings in 2021. Previously, these were to start in April 2020 and later in the summer of 2020. “The plan was that we would make one this year. Because of the pandemic, everything is different,” said Vikander. “We are still talking about it, so I hope we can start next year.”
The sequel to be directed by Ben Wheatley (High-Rise, Free Fire) therefore seems to be delayed until 2022 or maybe 2023 – if the film is yet to come. Due to the corona crisis nothing is certain anymore.
With a production budget of about $ 100 million, the first film raised about $ 250 million worldwide. The reception was very mixed, with 51% on Rotten Tomatoes.
