New Trailer for 'The Mummy' Reboot

Universal Pictures is hard at work rebooting their monster movie universe with the monster mayhem kicking off in style with the reboot of The Mummy. After releasing a very exciting teaser a few days ago, they’ve now unleashed the full force of the first official trailer. As the poster says: Welcome to a new world of Gods and Monsters.

Directed by Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek) from a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) and Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange), The Mummy sees Tom Cruise take the lead alongside Annabelle Wallis (Annabelle, Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (Terminator Genisys) and Russell Crowe (Gladiator) as Dr. Jekyll.

Cruise plays the role of Nick Morton, who faces off against a vengeful ancient Egyptian princess named Ahmanet, played by Star Trek Beyond’s Sofia Boutella (who looks amazing as a mummy, by the way. She must have done a lot of milk-bathing). The action-packed trailer below raises a lot more questions than it answers, especially regarding Cruise’s character (and if what I think happened to him really happened). Being a fan of Stephen Sommers' take on The Mummy, I wasn't so sure how I would like the reboot, but from the looks of it, it seems like we’re in for quite a thrill ride! So dig in, and unwrap the new Mummy trailer below.

Here’s the synopsis:

Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (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.

The Mummy will unwrap in theaters on June 9, 2017.
