Welcome to a new world of Gods and Monsters. Following a brief tease on Thursday, Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for its contemporary-set reboot of “The Mummy” franchise. Tom Cruise headlines the film which also stars Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe.
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (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.
Alex Kurtzman helms the new film which kicks off a potentially new cinematic universe featuring classic monsters such as The Wolf Man, Frankenstein, Dracula, The Invisible Man and more. The new “The Mummy” opens on June 9th.
