Universal Releases New One-Sheet for “The Mummy” feat. Tom Cruise!

The Mummy

Universal releases new theatrical one-sheet for “The Mummy” featuring Sofia Boutella’s Ahmanet and Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton.

In a week rife with new The Mummy news, Universal has just released the third theatrical one-sheet for The Mummy. Unlike the first poster that just featured the strange cargo – a sarcophagus carrying Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella), and the second poster that featured a half profile of Ahmanet and her split irises, this new poster showcases Ahmanet, Nick Morton (Tom Cruise), and a shot of London being destroyed by The Mummy’s wrath. You could view the new poster below.

The new poster not only features Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton for the first time, but it also goes on to confirm that The Mummy will be presented in IMAX 3D, a much speculated topic.

With two months left until The Mummy is awakened in theaters, expect more promotional news to follow in the coming days and weeks. Are you looking forward to seeing The Mummy in IMAX 3D? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.

As always, stay tuned to Universal Monsters Universe 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 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.

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, Dylan Kussman, and Christopher McQuarrie. The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Marwan Kenzari, Courtney B. Vance, Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella. The film opens June 9, 2017.

  1. Now I know that studios do read my comments! 🙂

    I wonder why it’s only now that we’re getting this type of confirmation though. But either way, I’m pumped about this news. And this certainly is setting the expectation that probably all future Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe movies will be given the 3D treatment. This makes total sense given that The Mummy is a tentpole picture and that a number of the other monster movies have the potential to also be big in scale (Creature from the Black Lagoon being the only confirmed one from Alex Kurtzman thus far as best as I know). But besides those, I absolutely expect The Wolfman and Van Helsing to be big pictures. With the Invisible Man, just taking a guess here, but I think a possible inspiration for the movie could be Ant-Man. The invisible concept could certainly go in a military application direction, plus with Johnny Depp expected to star, of course there will be some playful fun in it!

    Having The Mummy in 3D also makes sense given that Universal has a history with 3D in the classic monster universe…primarily in 1954’s Creature from the Black Lagoon.

    The last time a Tom Cruise movie was in 3D I think was Edge of Tomorrow back in June 2014…so almost exactly three years later a Tom Cruise 3D movie hits theaters! And of course The Mummy’s use of IMAX 3D will by comparison be a sampling for how Mission: Impossible 6 will use it (with The Mummy being a 3D conversion done in post-production versus M:I 6 being at least partially natively shot with IMAX 3D cameras). Very exciting stuff!
