Universal Pictures Sunday night released the first trailer for ‘The Mummy,’ as the studio attempts to create a monster cinematic universe.
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.
The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, and Russell Crowe. ‘The Mummy’ is directed by Alex Kurtzman from a script by Jon Spaihts and Christopher McQuarrie.
Universal Pictures relaunches the monster universe on June 9, 2017.
