Universal Pictures has released a poster and a teaser trailer for the Tom Cruise starring The Mummy, which will be the first movie in its news series of Universal Monsters shared universe films. The Mummy is set for a UK release on 9 June 2017, with films based on The Wolfman, The Invisible Man, Bride of Frankenstein and Van Helsing all in various stages of development.
And here’s the poster…
From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy ushers in a new world of gods and monsters. Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (played by Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond fame) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in the present, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis (King Arthur, Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B Vance (American Crime Story: The People V OJ Simpson) and Russell Crowe (Gladiator). It’s directed by Alex Kurtzman from a script by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Doctor Strange) and Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Edge Of Tomorrow).
