This is a big week for Sofia Boutella and the cast and crew of The Mummy as The Mummy begins filming. It’s also a pretty exciting week for us over here at Universal Monsters Universe. Just as we were informed last week, today (4/4/16), straight from the Mummy herself, Sofia Boutella has revealed that it is her first day for The Mummy.

The Mummy Begins Filming!
It’s very exciting to see production on the Alex Kurtzman directed The Mummy moving forward after a long time in production. As chronicled in our “The Mummy; What We Know So Far!”, this has been a film long in development with directors like Len Wiseman and Andy Muschietti previously attached.
With an inspired cast attached featuring the likes of Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, and Marwan Kenzari, The Mummy is a film that all eyes will soon be on. The film seems to have started filming in South East, London with one of the locations being the University of Oxford. While no “official” BTS pictures have been released for The Mummy, several fan pictures have surfaced featuring Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis near Radcliffe Square and outside the Bodleian Library. As you could see below, Tom Cruise being the gregarious and giving person that he is, took time out of his surely busy schedule to meet with various fans and onlookers. For a great write up on Tom Cruise in Oxford, please check out Orange Squeaky for more. It’s an excellent read, I’d like to add.

There have been no pictures of Sofia Boutella, but with today (4/4/2016) being her first day, we’re certain we’ll eventually catch a glimpse of her sooner rather than later.
Are you as excited for The Mummy as much as we are? Let us know in the comments below and be sure to join the conversation! We’d love to hear from you. Also, be sure to check out our profile on Sofia Boutella and wish her a happy birthday (it was yesterday 4/3rd); along with checking out the profile on Elizabeth Georgiou, the hair and makeup designer on the film.
