The Universal Monsters Shared Universe is ready to come at’cha with it’s first foray into shared-universe territory in decades with The Mummy. This second trailer shows that they’re not kidding around. They’re ready to bring it all to you, and scare you silly, even if they have to grab you by the lapel in order to do it. Synopsis!
Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy.
Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
I’m digging the modern day take, but right now this film feels a bit more like Tom Cruise Action Movie Number OMGHESDONESOMANY. But the ZeroG behind-the-scenes featurette shows him grinning like a little kid on Christmas Day…and I can’t look away when Cruise gets excited about something. Because I know that whatever it is, at least it’s gonna be a ton of fun. And also? MONSTERS.
