With the teaser trailer only just released over the weekend (Dec 3rd SG to be exact), the FULL TRAILER has since been unleashed now (Dec 4th in U.S. time, while it’s the morning of December 5th Monday here in Singapore), and essentially shows what happens when you uproot an ancient Mummy-coffin/tomb and put it on a military plane, and into civilisation LOL
I personally liked it when Tom Cruise’s character screamed on the plane hahaha - definitely NOT “Ethan Hunt” here! But wait, he “survives”? Is he to be a “Dorian Grey”-isque character??? HHHmmmmm
#TheMummy in theaters June 9, 2017.
STORY: "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."
WHAT-IS: "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.
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"
I am less enamoured of Tom Cruise in this film, compared to the notion of the upcoming plans, by which “THE MUMMY” is the first installment in the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe (Wiki) - which includes “Invisible Man”, “Wolf Man”, “Van Helsing”, “Creature from the Black Lagoon”, “Bride of Frankenstein” etc., in this reboot of “classic” horror-film characters.
Besides directing this feature film, Alex Kurtzman is also involved with other Universal Studios related projects, including “The Invisible Man” (credited as “Producer”), “Van Helsing (co-writer, producer), and a Producer for “The Vampire Chronicles”.
