This looks great! The new Mummy film has certainly taken a different stance from the Brendan Fraser version which, given the last one in China, was probably a good thing.
Tom Cruise is always reliable and even this short trailer is pretty damned thrilling. It also stars Russell Crowe, who is consistently good, and Sofia Boutella – the hot lady with blades for legs in Kingsman and the hot alien in Star Trek Beyond – who is consistently hot.
The Mummy isn’t due out until June 2017 and has been interestingly described as not only a reboot of the franchise, but also the first film of the Universal Monster Cinematic Universe. There are plans to make Frankenstein’s monster, Count Dracula, Wolf Man, Gill-man, the Invisible Man and even the Creature from the Black Lagoon (first 3D film I ever saw). Let’s hope this goes better than DC’s stuttering start to a universe. More info about the film here.
