Oh right, “The Mummy.” I honestly keep forgetting this movie is coming, and perhaps Universal senses they need to kick up the awareness, because with just a few weeks to go until it hits cinemas, a new trailer has landed.
Tom Cruise plays Ethan Hunt Nick Morton who opens up a tomb he shouldn’t have, gets cursed, and now has to save the world from an ancient evil. Even more, this movie will have to be a hit, because the studio wants to make a monster movie cinematic universe. No pressure. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Co-starring Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe, “The Mummy” opens on June 9th.
