I think it is best to keep away from that set, or everything Mulan related when describing this movie, because the controversies against Mulan, and the set where they filmed that movie are BIG REASONS why Mulan is being boycotted in many places around the world and from what it seems so far, it has not met studio expectations because of that...

Too bad there is.
Disney did not take the boycott as serious, but now that the movie is released, I think thy did not expect it to be as serious.

No official numbers have been released yet to prove if this boycott is really massive or just a minority, but the hate against this movie is everywhere, so let TR keep its audience more satisfied.

I don't think sharing a set with Mulan would bring any of that controversy over to Tomb raider

Now, Alicia or any future major cast member being vocally against the democratic manifestations in Hong Kong, that's a different story... But to be fair, I don't see that happening

This could turn out to be very good news in terms of getting things up and running.

Could be good news indeed, but it also seems to be something more towards smaller TV productions and indie movies than, say, big budget cinema, as it looks towards those productions who can't afford insurance anymore due to Covid coverage.

That being said, it's not like MGM is swimming in money right now, so it could still be something beneficial to Tomb raider.

Regardless, it is always good news to see UK film production moving forward.

Considering how the virus is actually getting worse and worse in the UK, I highly doubt this really means anything at all unfortunately.

Mulan's live action is a very bad movie. I had the (unfortunate) honor of watching the movie and omg ... it's just terrible.
