Universal Pictures has premiered a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Alex Kurtzman’s “The Mummy” reboot – one that offers a first look at Russell Crowe as Dr. Henry Jekyll transforming into Mr. Hyde.
The featurette also teases a vampire skull, laying the ground for what Universal intends to be a cinematic universe involving their classic monsters.
Safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella) 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.
Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe co-star in the film which opens June 9th.
