Tom Cruise was on hand to introduce the final action-packed trailer for The Mummy, ahead of the film’s debut in two days.
The first entry into Universal Pictures’ Dark Universe coming out Friday also stars Star Trek Beyond’s Sofia Boutella (who just got cast on HBO’s Farenheit 451) as the titular mummy, Princess Ahmanet, Annabelle Wallis (Annabelle), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (Terminator Genisys) and Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe as Dr. Henry Jekyll.
Directed by Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek) from a screenplay written by Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) and Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange), The Mummy will unwrap in theaters on June 9. Along with the new (and final) trailer, Universal Pictures has also released a mix of high-res stills, behind-the-scenes pics and screenshots from the Tom Cruise-starrer.
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (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.
