It's unheard of a blockbuster to come THIS soon to Netflix. Usually I think that's a bad thing but Vikander is starring in a Netflix original movie next year so maybe her talent agency pulled a few strings and did a solid with the executives there and basically "Help us out, the more people who know about Vikander, the more who will watch your original film."

That + WarnerMedia's own streaming service, they might think the 3x ROI is enough to green light a sequel for theatres (But more strategically to beef up their own content system). WarnerMedia is being very aggressive lately, they just leased Friends for another year to Netflix for $100M but rumour has it the motive is to keep the public watching Friends while they try to organise a reunion sequel show for their own streaming platform.

The film comes out December 16th and will be advertised on the platform then and is the big ONLY release (Mowgli comes this week) until after Christmas so their clearly pitching this next week as your big Christmas adventure blockbuster which is VERY EXCITING but again why I think Netflix paid MGM a lot of money because a lot of people will tune in, hopefully become fans of Vikander, then next year when her Original Movie comes out on the platform - tune in then)


Indiana Jones films are very popular on UK & IRE TV this time of year, Disney launching their own platform will NEVER give that to Netflix so they want Tomb Raider to be their offering and I do think it could do well on Netflix, I've been on a lot of planes lately and did see folks watching it on there.
Black Panther has been on Netflix since the summer

I watched the first Tomb Raider movie after seeing the new reboot one and I had to say.... the first one is much better. Angelina is just so natural in the role it is unbelievable.

Natural and Angelina doesn't fit on the same phrase she lack of good acting in this movie (but it's not her fault just the one of the director). She's much better in the Cradle of Life or at least she doesn't look horny every 30s.

I have learn something about her while I was excavating the deep of the movie section. She wanted to be on Tomb Raider 3 but before she know the box office result of COL and then after the movie she said she doesn't wanted to be on this franchise anymore.

Is that Netflix USA, not the deal at all here in Europe! That's promising to hear but it's not like Black Panther wasn't in a dire financial state.


This is a nice gift for Alicia Vikander. Ranked #3 star of 2018 THANKS to Tomb Raider.

A sequel must happen. Most people liked the movie.

I really hope that it will get one, especially with Alicia placing 3rd on IMDB’s top stars list for her work on TR. If we got a sequel with some of the major kinks and issues of the first movie worked out, I think it would really shine.

They'd need to find a way to attract US audience but at the same time they need to keep Chinese audience as well; if they manage to do that, a possible sequel won't flop! But how can they do that? That's the hard part...
