The Tomb Raider series, which we all know from games and later movies, came to the vision in 2018 with its remake. Although not much time has passed since the first movie, news began to come with Tomb Raider 2. We take a closer look at the answer to the question “When will Tomb Raider 2 be released?”
Tomb Raider is a game that everyone knows in the game world and is a source of inspiration for puzzle and track games. Starting his long journey in 1996, this series also appeared in the cinema world with dozens of games and multiple films.
Tomb Raider series, which we all are familiar with, starring in the movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) starring Angelina Jolie, took its place in cinemas in 2018 with a story that tells the origin of new actors and Lara Croft. Nowadays, news about Tomb Raider 2 has started to come. As Tomb Raider 2, let’s take a closer look at the details and known story of the movie, which is opened on the IMDB page.
What happened in the first movie Tomb Raider (2018)? (Spoiler)
Unlike the 2001 Lara Croft series with Angelina Jolie, we return to the years when Lara Croft lost her father and when she was still very young. Young Lara, who believed that her father would return one day and refuse to be inherited, was going to Japan to find out what happened to her father as a result of the puzzle she found.
Lara Croft, who traveled to the same place to find the trace of her father who went to Yamatai island to solve the mystery of queen Himiko, who was in a Japanese legend on a hidden island, found herself in the lap of an organization called Trinity looking for the same tomb. Lara, who discovered that her father did not die on the island, was saving the world from the deadly virus Himito owned by killing Vogel, who was at the head of the group on the island.
When Lara returned to London after her father’s death, when Lara accepted the heritage and management of the company, she learned that the company that manages Trinity is actually her father’s company. It turned out that Ana Miller, the company’s lawyer, was at the top of everything.
Changing the director and screenwriter in Tomb Raider 2:
New information about Tomb Raider 2 has begun to emerge, although it has not been long since the first movie. The first movie ended in a way that shows the events will continue. Despite this, there was no sound from the producers and the studio about the sequel until today.
The first film, which achieved a controversial success in the vision, was described as an average Tomb Raider film. Therefore, no one was sure whether the second film could be released. However, after the appearance of the IMDB page as Tomb Raider 2, it was learned that Warner Bros. transferred the director chair to another name.
According to the movie’s IMDB page, the director of the Tomb Raider 2 movie will be Ben Weathley, who is famous for his movies such as Kill List and High Rise, instead of Roar Uthaug, who directed the first movie. There are also different names from the first film in the script part of the film, which is also changed in terms of screenwriter.
Which players will be included in Tomb Raider 2?
Alicia Vikander, the lead role that many of us liked the first movie and gave life to Lara Croft, returns to the same role in the second movie. It is also certain that in the second movie, which will process the events after the end point of the first movie, Kristin Scott Thomas will return as Ana Miller.
It is said that Lu Ren, who survived Himiko’s grave, will also appear in the second film. In this context, most likely, Daniel Wu will appear in the second movie as Lu Ren.
Possible subject of Tomb Raider 2:
In the first film, Lara Croft prevented the deadly virus from escaping Himiko’s grave and watched her father take over her company after returning to London. Having learned about who was at the head of the Trinity organization after taking over the company, Lara decided to do something about it and the movie ended here.
We saw Lara in the final credits of the first movie while buying a pair of weapons that we are familiar with from a hostage shop. In this context, it is thought that we will watch Lara in Tomb Raider 2 while trying to stop the Trinity organization.
But since there is no information about the story yet, the subject of Tomb Raider 2 can come across in a completely different way. Some critics also think that the subject of Trinity may be vaguely mentioned and that Lara may pursue a new tomb.
When will Tomb Raider 2 be released?
When Ben Wheatley was first chosen as director for Tomb Raider 2, the release date of the film was set as March 19, 2021. However, it is stated that the shooting of Tomb Raider 2 has not started yet due to the coronavirus epidemic, which has shown its effect all over the world this year and affected the film industry very heavily.
Even if everything started normal and as planned, even if the film started to be shot this September, it is still considered that the film will not reach March 2021. If the studio does not give up the idea of releasing the movie on the date of the first movie, it is said that Tomb Raider fans will have to wait March 2022 for the new movie.
