Check out the latest BTS video on “The Mummy.”

There’s only six and a half more weeks until The Mummy and with that we have a brand new, sneak peak of The Mummy. You could check it out below.

In the newly released sneak peak of Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy, we learn more about Sofia Boutella’s Ahmanet and Prodigium. The video also features new scenes that we haven’t seen yet in the previously released trailers, along with snippets of interviews with Tom Cruise (Nick Morton), Annabelle Wallis (Jenny Halsey), Russell Crowe (Dr. Jekyll), and Sofia Boutella (Ahmanet/The Mummy). Here’s what Tom Cruise had to say about this June’s monster movie:

“I remember being six years old and seeing the original Boris Karloff ‘Mummy’ and loving it so to have the opportunity to create a monster movie in this day and age is very exciting. The idea of a female mummy I thought was inspiring and seductive. Sofia Boutella is perfectly cast. It’s about great action, it’s about suspense, and it’s about real scares. I’m excited to reintroduce these Classic Monsters to a modern audience.” – Tom Cruise

It’s been said time and time again how The Mummy is looking to preserve the spirit and integrity of the original and classic Universal Monsters films. While Alex Kurtzman’s film is a modern take on one of the monsters, fans should be pleased to see that this is decidedly more Universal Monsters (and a bit Hammer) as opposed to the more Raiders of the Lost Ark take the last version had. Also, we cannot stress enough that The Mummy is based on the original 1932 version and not the 1999 film.

As always, stay tuned to Universal Monsters Universe for the latest on The Mummy and the Universal Monsters Universe of films.

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. Whoa! Syfy is doing #MummyMondays ! The marketing is ramping up! I’m hoping for extremely good reviews of the movie in time! But of course, forget critics at the same time! The only critic that matters at the end of the day is oneself! So much of the time I completely disagree with the majority of critics opinions on a given movie. I have my own sensibilities and want to make up my own mind.

  2. Seen it. Not the best of Tom Cruise. Perhaps the sequel would be better. Really liked Russel Crowe as Dr. Jackal. Can’t wait for his stand alone movie next.

    • Russell Crowe was so fantastic as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It was a real treat that we got him in the movie and got to see both Jekyll and Hyde. I’m glad you enjoyed his performance.
