Universal releases new clip from “The Mummy” featuring Tom Cruise and Jake Johnson.
Taking place close to the start of the film, the sequence in the clip below was actually filmed closer to the end of principal photography. Crew members built a “U” shaped town in the middle of Namibia to film one of the key action sequences. It would not only showcase Tom Cruise in a terrific action scene, but also be one of the first action scenes and stunts that actor Jake Johnson would ever perform.
Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy looks to maintain a spirit of adventure similar to Sony and Naughty Dog’s Uncharted games. Along with proper chills and thrills that promise to be “excruciatingly terrifying” according to Sofia Boutella, The Mummy will almost certainly be one of the most exciting films of Summer 2017!

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.
