    With Disney gobbling up everything, everyone else is hoping to cash in whatever IP they have available. Not surprised at all.

    Awesome. I know I'm in the minority, but I loved the first one. And I thought it was plenty fun.

    The first one was good, and I was disappointed the low box office results likely meant no sequel. But hey, if a sequel is going ahead, I gladly welcome it!

    I'll watch. I like Vikander in other things, but Jolie was just so perfect for the roll, it's hard to buy tiny little Alicia as the action hero. But it was still fun, so what the heck.

    I was wondering whether the massive worldwide box office would be enough, and happily, it was.

    I liked the reboot more than the Jolie movies, so I'll check this one out when the time comes. Guess it doesn't hurt that so much was lifted from the videogame, which I also enjoyed playing.

    I think the first movie suffered from being an origin story we really didn't need. The character has plenty of potential, though, and the sequel could be lots of fun.

    This is surprising. This here review convinced me not to rent the first, but maybe the fourth time'll be the charm? :p

    The first one was abysmal. The lead had about as much charisma as a bar of soap. Dreadful movie. Seriously I'd rather have had Angelina's version.

    Will the sequel be called Rise of.. or Shadow of... The Tomb Raider?

    I actually quite liked the first movie...it wasn't amazing or anything, but it was fairly entertaining. I'm not sure why it got such a mixed reception, actually.
