Everything you need to know about Tomb Raider 2

Tomb Raider 2 takes place (despite our doubts) with some very exciting people.
Ben Wheatley - responsible for British cult films like Kill List and High-Rise - takes over Roar Uthaug as director. Amy Jump was asked to write the script for the sequel because Alicia Vikander Jumps liked writing.
The 2018 reboot follow-up was even released early next year, but we feel like it will be delayed like so many other films.

But what do we actually know about Lara Croft's fourth visit to the cinema (and the second sequel)?
Tomb Raider 2 release date: when does Tomb Raider 2 arrive?
When Wheatley was confirmed to be the director, the sequel was released on March 19, 2021, and that's still the case for now.
However, due to the current global situation, the film did not start filming in June 2020. Even if filming starts in July and things become "normal" again, the film is unlikely to be ready for March 2021.
There was a little more than a year between the first filming and its release in March 2018, so a similar timeframe could indicate a release in late 2021. However, if they want to stick to a release in March, fans may have to wait until March 2022.
This is just speculation on our part, so we won't know anything safe until we get an update of the shooting schedule.
Cast of Tomb Raider 2: who's coming back for Tomb Raider 2?
Alicia Vikander will definitely be back as Lara Croft, but elsewhere it is not so obvious who will be returning.

If the sequel starts from the end of the first film (more on that in a moment), we can expect Kristin Scott Thomas to return as Ana Miller.
Dominic West is unlikely to return as Lara's father, Lord Richard Croft, after sacrificing himself to save his daughter, while villain Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins) also died in the first film.
Maybe Daniel Wu is back as Lu Ren, the ship's captain who helped Lara find her father and escape Yamatai.
If it were up to Vikander, we might also see a meta cameo by Angelina Jolie: "I wouldn't mind! I adore Angelina, so we'll see ... We should definitely ask."
Tomb Raider 2 plot: what is Tomb Raider 2 about?
After saving the world and preventing the deadly virus from escaping the grave, Lara returned to London and accepted her place in her father's company.
However, she soon discovered that Trinity - the group that wanted to release the virus - was directly connected to Croft Holdings through Trinity's parent company, Patna. Ana Miller, the business partner of Lara's father, is the head of Patna, and Lara finds out that Ana has worked with Vogel and Trinity throughout her project.

In the credits scene, Lara buys the legendary twin rifles from the video game, determined to continue her father's work to stop Trinity.
It remains to be seen whether the sequel will continue this thread of Lara's fight against the Trinity, but there is also the possibility that the sequel will only build a new grave and a new mission for Lara, completely detached from the original film.
Tomb Raider 2 Trailer: Is There New Footage From Tomb Raider 2?
You can hunt as much as you want, but there won't be a trailer for a while.
As mentioned above, the sequel hasn't started filming yet, so we wouldn't expect to see new footage until 2021 at the earliest.
Tomb Raider 2 is currently scheduled for release on March 19, 2021.
