The trailer for Universal’s reboot of The Mummy arrived today after it’s initial tease last week. The first in the studio’s planned franchise, involving all their classic movie monsters such as Frankenstein’s monster and Count Dracula, they’re certainly not going in half-assed.
Starring Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe (as Dr Henry Jekyll) and Sofia Boutella as the titular Mummy, the film takes place in a modern day setting as opposed to it’s 1920’s predecessor. Given Cruise’s and Crowe’s current track record you can be sure the script was solid for them to have signed on.
The Mummy is a long way off, opening June 9th in the UK, but for now check out the trailer above and let us know your thoughts below.
