Universal Pictures has just released the first official full-length trailer for their highly anticipated reboot of The Mummy starring Tom Cruise! The film, very surprisingly looks quite good and should serve a great jumping off point for Universals planned monster shared universe. The film also stars Russell Crowe as Dr Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, plus a very nice supporting cast of Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance. The film directed by Alex Kurtzman and is co-written by Jon Spaihts and long-time Tom Cruise collaborator Christopher McQuarrie.
Watch the awesome first official trailer below and sound off in the comments section with your thoughts. As always, thanks for stopping by ECMOVIEGUYS!
Here’s the full synopsis for The Mummy:
Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy.
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.
Cruise is joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson) and Oscar® winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
The creative team on this action-adventure event is led by director/producer Alex Kurtzman and producer Chris Morgan, who have been instrumental in growing some of the most successful franchises of the past several years—with Kurtzman writing or producing entries in the Transformers, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible series, and Morgan being the narrative engineer of the Fast & Furious saga as it has experienced explosive growth from its third chapter on. Sean Daniel, who produced the most recent Mummy trilogy, produces alongside Kurtzman and Morgan. www.themummy.com
The Mummy is set to hit theaters on June 9th, 2017.
