The First Full-Length Trailer For ‘The Mummy’ Looks Like ‘Mission Impossible’ But With Scary Monsters

by 11 months ago

The teaser trailer for The Mummy saw Tom Cruise running for his life. In the first full-length trailer, it finds Cruise in a position he’s accustomed to: departing a doomed airplane before its scheduled landing. It a scene that looks like it could be from an upcoming Mission Impossible film, Cruise tries to escape a fiery plane that is going to crash back to Earth.

“Welcome to a new world of gods…and monsters.”

Besides attempting to cheat death, Cruise will have to escape the wrath of a horrifying four-irised mummy named Princess Ahmanet, played by Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond).

This is the second remake of the classic monster movie franchise, The Mummy first debuted in 1932. Brendan Fraser starred Richard “Rick” O’Connell in 1999 version of The Mummy. Coincidentally, it was Brendan’s birthday over the weekend, so happy 48th birthday to Mr. Fraser.

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.

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 Mummy smashes into theaters on June 9, 2017.
