MGM and Warner Bros. Pictures Tomb Raider earned in the USA a $4.7 million, shown in 2,788 Theaters during the third weekend. This is a drop of 57% from the Second Weekend, earning a total of $50,4 million in Seventeen Days.
The Alicia Vikander action movie has thus far earned $245 million worldwide.
This puts it past Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life ($156m in 2003) and almost tops the 2001 Tomb Raider $274m.
Tomb Raider still has some stiff competition from multiple movies in the Theater, including “Black Panther” and “Ready Player One”.
The movie is already the seventh-biggest video game movie ever.
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan.
