The Mummy trailer has been released. This is the production’s second trailer. Take a sneak peek at the action the Universal Movie promises. The premiere? June 6.
A remake of The Mummy will premiere on June 6. The movie stars Tom Cruise (Nick Norton), Sofia Boutella (The Mummy/ Princess Ahmanet) Annabelle Wallis (Jenny Halsey, Nick Norton’s partner) and Russell Crowe as Dr. Henry Jekyll/ Mr. Hyde.
Only a few details of the story have been revealed on The Mummy trailer so far: Princess Ahmanet has been buried alive in a tomb, over 2000 years ago. When Norton and Halsey discover her place of eternal damnation, they also mark the moment when Princess Ahmanet is awaken. Mastering the darkest of forces, she is not The Mummy, who ragefully destroys everything standing in her way.
The Mummy reboot is seen through the lens of director Alex Kurtzman, whose mark is left on the rebooted Star Trek series and The Sleepy Hollow series.
The movie was first announced in 2012 and, at that time, was said that it would be the first installment in a Universal Monsters shared movie universe. This is that to expect next:
The Invisible Man film – starring Johnny Depp
The Wolf Man film – it is rumored that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be the main character
Van Helsing film – the first choice for the main character was Tom Cruise, but he abandoned the project as of November 2015. No news about the cast at present
Creature from the Black Lagoon film – may star Scarlet Johansson
Bride of Frankenstein film – Javier Bardem said “pass” to the role of Dr. Henry Jekyll/ Mr. Hyde on The Mummy (which ultimately went to Crowe), but is in talks to play Frankenstein’s monster
These are merely the subjects of the future horror movies, not their final titles.
