As promised, Universal Pictures released the first official trailer for The Mummy last night, after teasing us with a 15-second video just a few days ago. The two-and-a-half minute trailer reveals much more about the concept of the movie that continues in the tradition of previous Mummy-legend films such as The Mummy (1932), The Mummy (1959), and The Mummy (1999).
The trailer starts with a terrifying cargo plane crash initiated by the powers of the ancient princess Ahmanet played by Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), and takes viewers from the deserts of the Middle East to modern-day London where Tom Cruise’s character Nick Morton is able to see the supernatural.
The Mummy (2017) was directed by Alex Kurtzman (writer: Transformers,producer: Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness) and written by Christopher McQuarrie and Jon Spaihts. Along with Cruise and Boutella, the film also stars Jake Johnson, Annabelle Wallis and Oscar-winner Russell Crowe as Dr. Henry Jekyll.
The Mummy premieres in theaters, including IMAX cinemas, on June 9, 2017.
