Universal Pictures has released the very first footage from the upcoming "Mummy" reboot starring Tom Cruise.
While viewers will have to wait this Sunday for the first official trailer, this 15-second tease provides a really quick glimpse at Cruise doing what he does best: running for dear life! But in this case, he's running away from a dust storm that was conjured up by a newly awakened and really pissed off mummy princess. Yikes!
Directed by "Star Trek" reboot screenwriter-turned-helmer Alex Kurtzman (People Like Us), "The Mummy" also stars Russell Crowe, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, and Courtney B. Vance. The film is slated for a June 9, 2017 release.
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) 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.
