JAKARTA – Tomb Raider (2018) is a film adaptation of the video game of the same name which tells the background of the adventurer Lara Croft, played by Alicia Vikander. This film provides an Indiana Jones-style atmosphere that is full of action-packed adventures, the mysteries of ancient artifacts, and also the acting that gets a lot of praise.
The film grossed $275 million or nearly Rp4 billion at the box office, and in September 2019 it was reported that Ben Wheatley would take over from Roat Uthaug’s directorial chair in the sequel. Originally intended to be released in March 2021, the production of this film temporarily stalled due to the Covid-19 pandemic which unfortunately forced the director to part with this project.

Last reported, in January 2021 the director’s chair had been taken over by Misha Green. As director and writer, Misha provided the tentative title Tomb Raider: Obsidian for the film.
Reporting from Collider, Wednesday (21/7/2021), Alicia admitted that she didn’t know if she could return to playing Lara Croft, “before the pandemic I would probably say yes; and even now I still say yes, even though I’m not sure. As far as I know, they’re writing a script. I think I can still play Lara again.”
“The script is still very new, so I don’t know the details yet and what kind of story they will bring. Misha is in the lead writer’s chair and I can’t wait to read what she’s been up to.”
The first Tomb Raider film managed to wow audiences with its balance between adventure story and character development. Many eyes are on this sequel project, hoping the second Tomb Raider film can bring the same balance.
