Recap: Week Ten of Filming ‘The Mummy’


Principal photography on “The Mummy” wraps week ten of filming.

While yesterday marked exactly one year until The Mummy releases, today is yet another weekly recap of filming of the June 9, 2017 monster movie.  It’s amazing to think that Universal Monsters Universe has already had 10 weekly recaps that chronicle production of the film while it’s in principal photography.  While some weeks are heavier than others, like a week that sees casting announcements such as Annabelle Wallis and Jake Johnson, to a week that has us proudly being the first to report on the plot synopsis and Brian Tyler composing the score; it’s always fun to close out the week with a little news regarding The Mummy.

While the cast members were announced and their roles announced in general terms, Russell Crowe was the only cast member who’s role was specifically announced when he made it known he would be playing Dr. Jekyll….until now.  Universal Monsters Universe broke news earlier this week that Annabelle Wallis’s archaeologist character will be named Jenny.  As you could see below from The Mummy‘s female lead, Annabelle Wallis, she posted the following on Instagram this week.

According to earlier reports, Annabelle Wallis’ full character name will be Jenny Halsey.

This also happens to be a notable week as we are now directly within a year’s reach from the upcoming Universal “Monsters Universe” film and just yesterday (6/9TH) we came up with our Top 5 Reasons Why We’re Excited for The Mummy. which we hope you all enjoy.

That’s about it for this week, but be sure to stay tuned for the latest on The Mummy!

“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 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.”

The Mummy is directed by Alex Kurtzman, from a script by Jon Spaihts.  The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Marwan Kenzari, Courtney B. Vance, Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella as the iconic creature now revealed to be an ancient queen.  The film opens June 9, 2017.
