Let's not forget the other clichè tropes in this with the secret organisation and the father with the secret life. They're using a lot of clichès in this movie but to be honest it's emulating adventure films like Indiana Jones and The Mummy and those are pretty much the basis for all ancient adventure films so I expect some cliché moments in there the game also had a lot of them to be honest.

Could be a silly question but anyway...

In how many months we could expect a sequel announcement IF the movie is really successful and WB would really consider a sequel for the film?

Clichés are only clichés because they can easily work as plot ideas. The problem is just using them without any though put on them. Let's hope this is not the case with this movie.

Its depends.

If the movie cost 100 million ...

1. It debuts high in the US and around the world and quickly raises 400 millions, could be announced in two week or three after the premiere

2. If he fails in the USA and has international success but raises a few 300 or less, then they could take their time (they would have to evaluate if they are interested or not)

The problem with this film is that it is produced by many studios: WB, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, GK films ...

****
Remember the predictions about TR? It is the only movie that goes up. Wrinke, Love Simon and Red Sparrow go down and now TR predict 60 in the USA.

I hope they keep going up. If TR raises more than 100 in the US the sequel would be guaranteed

A sequel probably won't be announced unless the film clears $300M I feel like this is pretty achievable, if the budget is even lower than 100M (there was a rumour 60M-80M that seems too low) then I'd say around $250M would do. If this film fails domestically but still does well overseas and internationally they'll probably make a sequel with a new company attatched as distributor other than Warner Bros.

What if the sequel is going to be a cheap tv movie with a different actress?

^ You mean Camilla Luddington


If it costed $100M but makes $300M + gets good reviews (to be honest if it gets good reviews they'll make a sequel and market it better at $250M) you'll probably get an announcement at Comic Con!

I just saw ads and bill board promotions for it here, to get that much advertising this film HAD to cost at least $100 Million. And you know what it sounds full of action so with good word of mouth it could have legs to bring in lots of money - I see no reason for it to reach Mission Impossible level of success if NOT Jumanji. I'd like to see that box office for Tomb Raider and then it'll make a killing in the Blu-ray and streaming market years later.

no! hahahaha

They have a contract with Square Enix with some clauses: Lara can not smoke, can not appear nude ... I'm sure it can not be a tvmovie. In fact, if they do not make another movie in a certain time the rights return to Square (as it happened with Paramount or Dan Lin productions) that is good because it encourages them to make more movies.

I also thought that the budget was less than 100 but seeing the new trailers I think it will be a 100 million movie.

At this point it's pretty important that critical word of mouth is good to win over the general audience if we want to see sequels. Black Panther has a huge success that has been underestimated, it's already earned $704M in under two weeks this is most likely going to have a strong hold going into March and will go on to be one of the top ten highest earning films of all time.

Tomb Raider benefits from it being the first major release during US Spring Break so a lot of college students might go see it with their time off, also it will co-incide with St Patrick's Day weekend and Easter break will be early this year.

Beauty and the beast opened on the same day last year. I hope it brings luck.
