I think when many people heard that there was going to be another ‘Mummy‘ movie made, there was a collective response of ‘Sweet lord no’. But, then Tom Cruise was announced as the lead and the movie started to get some traction. Today, Universal Pictures has released the official synopsis for the new ‘Mummy‘ reboot film. Check out all the latest details below, and let us know what you think AFTER THE JUMP!
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (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.
Tom Cruise stars in the June 9, 2017 release along with Annabelle Wallis (Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, Annabelle), Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World) and Courtney B. Vance (“American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson”). Russell Crowe (Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, Man of Steel) is reportedly in early talks to join the cast as Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde.
