Teaser Trailer For Tom Cruise Running For His Life From A Four-Irised Monster In A Reboot Of ‘The Mummy’
Member Brendan Fraser as Richard “Rick” O’Connell in the 1999 movie The Mummy?
Oh yeah, I member.
Well, there’s a new mummy movie, but this time it’s Tom Cruise who will be running away from spooky mummies.
In the latest reboot of the classic monster movie franchise, The Mummy that first debuted in 1932, Cruise will play Nick Morton and face a horrifying four-irised mummy named Ahmanet, played by Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond).
This latest version will be directed by Star Trek‘s Alex Kurtzman. Russell Crowe will be playing Dr. Jekyll, which may lead to his own spinoff standalone adventure thanks to this shared universe. Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, and Courtney B. Vance are also in the cast.
The full trailer arrives on Sunday, but this quick teaser trailer gives you some insight into the zombie princess.
Here’s the full synopsis for The Mummy:
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.
Cruise is joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson) and Oscar® winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
The creative team on this action-adventure event is led by director/producer Alex Kurtzman and producer Chris Morgan, who have been instrumental in growing some of the most successful franchises of the past several years—with Kurtzman writing or producing entries in the Transformers, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible series, and Morgan being the narrative engineer of the Fast & Furious saga as it has experienced explosive growth from its third chapter on. Sean Daniel, who produced the most recent Mummy trilogy, produces alongside Kurtzman and Morgan.
The poster features a dark and creepy sarcophagus.
The Mummy is expected to crawl into theaters on June 9, 2017.
