Welcome to Mummy Mondays!

Wait a second … what the heck are Mummy Mondays? Well, they're gonna make Mondays a whole heck of a lot better …

Every Monday from now through June 5, we'll be going behind the scenes of Universal’s upcoming monster movie extravaganza The Mummy to bring you exclusive info and footage from one of the summer's biggest cinematic roller coaster rides.

To start things off with a bang (and a crash, and a ka-boom …), we've got stars Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Russell Crowe and Annabelle Wallis, as well as director Alex Kurtzman, talking about bringing a classic monster to a modern audience … and making it "excruciatingly terrifying" in the process!

Mummies can swim. They can also unleash armies of rats and turn themselves into giant cloud monsters. Watch below.

The Mummy opens on June 9.
