Full disclosure, I’m not the biggest fan of Tom Cruise. Between his personal beliefs and not all his movies appealing to me, I tend to treat his movies just like any other. So just saying, he himself is not a selling point to me.
After all that, I have to say the teaser trailer for The Mummy looks pretty good. I really should have known better but I was surprised this takes place NOW. I guess I’m so pre-programmed by the Brendan Frasier trilogy that I assumed this would take place in the past.
Take a look…
Gone is the swashbuckling feel of the trilogy that started with 1999’s The Mummy, but I really dig the new action/adventure direction the reboot is taking.
Here’s a brief Synopsis…
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.
And Here’s a Pretty Kickass Poster…
The movie was directed by Alex Kurtzman and also stars Annabelle Wallis (Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (The People V. O.J. Simpson), and Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
