The first stunning BTS images of Sofia Boutella in the upcoming Mummy reboot emerged online over the weekend, while the Star Trek actress was filming a scene on the London set of the Universal Pictures monster movie.

Boutella stars as the film’s titular mummy, against whom Tom Cruise’s Special Forces character Tyler Colt will go toe to toe. Apparently, she was filming a scene where she wields a mysterious blade and takes control of a crowd. Here’s a synopsis for the movie:

Though safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen 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.

Directed by Alex Kurtzman from a script by Jon Spaihts, The Mummy will be the first in a shared cinematic universe developed by Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan featuring Universal’s classic monsters, such as: the Invisible Man (played by Johnny Depp), Dracula, the Wolf Man and more. Check out Boutella's mummy:


Also starring Russell Crowe as Dr. Jekyll, and Annabelle Wallis, The Mummy is set to unwrap in movie theaters on June 9, 2017. What do you think of Boutella's look as the titular mummy?
