The Mummy Trailer

"I saw her… She is real." Universal has debuted the first official trailer for the new 2017 version of The Mummy, this time starring Tom Cruise in a movie directed by Alex Kurtzman. Cruise plays Nick Morton, one of the main characters who digs up the new "mummy", a priestess named Ahmanet played by Sofia Boutella. She unleashes a fury unlike anything seen in modern times, ushering in a "new world of gods and monsters". The rest of the cast includes Russell Crowe, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Javier Botet. I'm actually a big fan of the 1999 version of The Mummy, and I'm not so sure about this new movie. It looks way too VFX driven and flashy, but it might turn out okay. Take a look below.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Alex Kurtzman's The Mummy, direct from YouTube:

The Mummy Poster

Though safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess 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. The Mummy is directed by writer-filmmaker Alex Kurtzman, who made his directorial debut with People Like Us in 2012, after co-writing scripts for Star Trek, Transformers, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The script is written by Jon Spaihts and Christopher McQuarrie. This is another updated take on the original Universal Mummy movie from 1932. Universal will release Kurtzman's The Mummy in theaters starting June 9th, 2017 next summer. Your first impression?

The original was a perfect blend of action adventure and humor, with lots of replay value. Something of a classic even, in a sense. This is something completely different, and part of Universal's new "Monsters" universe. Though both are based on the original series for the 30's, Fraser's Mummy opted for a more lighthearted feel. This trailer seems to market it as a bit more of a serious monster movie. I think the likes of Jake Johnson can bring a bit more of the humor into it, which I'm sure he's meant to do anyways. That said, this will probably be decent. Tom Cruise has been doing fairly well lately.

i'm not even going to compare this to Karloff's Mummy, since it's so different, there's no point. in fact, i give them some credit for it appearing nothing like the Fraser / Weisz Mummy, either. however, i love the lighthearted feel you describe of the '99 film, its Saturday afternoon serial feel (see also Rocketeer, Indiana Jones). this looks *super* serious. no bad thing in itself, i have no issues with Tom Cruise, and am a fan of Crowe, but... the mix seems off at the moment. so maybe.

Agree with everything you just wrote here.

Alex Billington on Dec 5, 2016


This looks amazing! This trailer alone has done the job for me...i will be in the cinema when this hits theaters next year!

Paul3077 on Dec 5, 2016


How much cocaine are they doing at Universal?

Carpola on Dec 5, 2016


This looks intriguing.

Kenobi on Dec 5, 2016


Not impressed. At least the trailer had Tom Cruise running from trailing destruction again, like MI: Whatever one had the Kremlin blow up. And what was with that Cruise screaming?!? Was almost as odd as Gosling's!

RAW_D on Dec 5, 2016


Yeah they used the same exact scream twice in a row, actually made me laugh.

Efterklang on Dec 5, 2016


I'm really excited to see what they do with this Universal monster shared universe. They've got some great actors lined up. Seeing as Tom Cruise seemingly can't die, I wonder if he's playing a famous character. My first thought was Dorian Gray but then he'd probably look a lot younger.

David Diaz on Dec 5, 2016


At least she's sexy. That evil goddess ... Rest of it is ... well, ouch ...

shiboleth on Dec 5, 2016


That moment when you realize half way through a trailer you're making the "WTF are you serious?" face. This looks astoundingly bad to me.

Mark on Dec 5, 2016


It's looks good, but Tom Cruise in a mummy movie doesn't feel okay. We must wait what the first reactions are.

ari smulders on Dec 5, 2016


Looks very cheesy, but hey, Cruise kicking mummy-butt. That does the trick for me. Nice to see Enchantress again.

Nash on Dec 5, 2016


cheesy? lol

Kenobi on Dec 5, 2016


Well, yeah. Cheesy, as in cliché score with deep humming tones, hot lady wearing glasses to make her look smarter, breathing sounds when a sarcophagus is visible, zooming in on heroes faces who then says "what the hell", black smoke from 99 dollar software, hero sacrificing himself for hot lady, shock-effect from hero waking up in body-bag, "Welcome to a new world of gods and monsters", hero jumping in front of explosions, supernatural being raising arms and then shit happens and famous buildings being destroyed, You know....cheesy.

Nash on Dec 5, 2016


your beef is the fact that the girl wears "how cliche...Cruise is wearing pants"

Kenobi on Dec 5, 2016


Yeh thats the only cliche thing he listed......

Higgens on Dec 5, 2016


The rest are equally stupid

Kenobi on Dec 5, 2016


Could you elaborate on that?

Nash on Dec 5, 2016


No, he cant.

Higgens on Dec 5, 2016


That's very well possible sir...

Nash on Dec 5, 2016


yes, I can. Everything he listed can be said about critically acclaimed movies. His criticisms were a joke. glasses? joke guy being heroic? joke supernatural being raising arms? joke you'd have to be a complete moron to think those are valid criticisms. I guess we know what you are.

Kenobi on Dec 5, 2016


Ok sport.

Higgens on Dec 5, 2016

24 have no comeback

Kenobi on Dec 6, 2016


I dont need a comeback for someone I deem not worth my time to engage, good day sir.

Higgens on Dec 6, 2016


But you just

Kenobi on Dec 6, 2016


I suspect this Kenobi person is around 15, they clearly lack any maturity or ability to hold an intelligent conversation.

grimjob on Dec 7, 2016


Yes sir, that's what I thought. But I can't help emphasising what this beautiful website is about; watching trailers, reading great articles and having conversations about movies. Without calling forum-members morons. Even if I were to convert only one troll a year into someone who actually contributes, that would be worth my time.

Nash on Dec 9, 2016


Indeed. Been on this site for about 7-8 years now, and I love that it's stayed generally free of the vitriol found on most other sites. I really like this community, it's smaller but full of interesting people.

grimjob on Dec 9, 2016


Generally free? I've been trolling this place for at least 2 years now

Kenobi on Dec 12, 2016



Kenobi on Dec 12, 2016


Labelling statements as a "joke" is not providing arguments or elaboration, It's just repeating empty remarks. And using words like "moron" to describe fellow forum members basically destroys every argument you make. It's close to funny that you prove my statement by suggesting that the 10 points I mention are seen in other movies too. That's what makes them cliches, right? But please, name us a few critically acclaimed movies that all suffer from the 10 cliches I mentioned.

Nash on Dec 6, 2016


Yeah...the original post was full of proof why those things are the sign of a bad movie....HAHAHAHA Dumb much?

Kenobi on Dec 6, 2016


So no arguments why my 10 examples of clichés are no clichés? And no examples of acclaimed movies who suffer from the same clichés? OK, i'll find someone else who will contribute with actual arguments.

Nash on Dec 6, 2016


Says the guys who provided no argument...HAHAHAH this moron has no idea what an opinion is.

Kenobi on Dec 6, 2016


An opinion is just anything that you consider to be true, justified or desirable. Everybody has opinions, there is nothing special about it. More interesting are the arguments or facts that back up an opinion or statement. My opinion is that this tralier is cheesy. I gave you 11 examples of clichés in this trailer to back that opinion up. All you did is tell us that Tom Cruise is wearing pants, that other forum members are morons and you have been expressing the idea that your own remarks are funny by typing stuff like "HAHAHAH". Do you have any other arguments left?

Nash on Dec 7, 2016


Thanks for the second rate definition....didn't need it though considering I was telling YOU what a definition was already.

Kenobi on Dec 7, 2016


Still no arguments? If you have no desire to get into a conversation about movies, then let's stop this.

Nash on Dec 7, 2016


Guy cites definition of opinion...then expects an argument to prove opinion. You aren't the brightest are you. And where are your arguments? LOL

Kenobi on Dec 7, 2016


My statement was the trailer is cheesy. My argument is that the trailer contains at least 11 well known movie cliche's. Now let's hear yours, other than "joke", "moron", "HAHAHAH" and "LOL", because that is all jibberish.

Nash on Dec 7, 2016


What you cited weren't cliches. Women wearing glasses isn't a cliche any more than a guy wearing pants. The fact that you think that's cliched proves you are a moron. That's literally the dumbest gripe ever/ "looked cliche...there was a guy in a car"

Kenobi on Dec 7, 2016


This is at least an attempt to respond to 1 of the 11 cliches I mentioned. But if fails. I didn't say a woman wearing glasses is a cliché. I said a woman wearing glasses to make her look smarter because she is supposed to be an archaeologist, that's a cliche. When responding to arguments, always try to understand the context, especially when it is explicitly mentioned. And again, what are you trying to accomplish by calling forum members 'morons'. It doesn't add anything to the experience of this forum.

Nash on Dec 9, 2016



Kenobi on Dec 9, 2016


Yeah, that and the other 10 examples of cheesisness I described in detail and in chronological order for your convenience. Back to the glasses. People are vain. And glasses are not known to be cool. People will call you four eyes for wearing them. That's one the main reasons why many people don't wear glasses anymore. And that's why wearing contacts or getting eye laser treatment is so common these days. Hollywood knows this. And Hollywood thinks very carefully about how they portray characters. Every detail of these characters is there for a reason. Why does the hot lady wear glasses? The name of the character is Jenny Halsey. Does she flip burgers? Does she serve coffee? No, she is... an archaeologist. And they are supposed to be smart. Let's give her some glasses. The comparison with Cruise wearing pants as an example of cheesiness is unfortunately beyond my comprehension.

Nash on Dec 5, 2016


Bummer. Was hoping they'd go in a "less is more" direction, really play up the ambience. It's a shame they feel this has to be another CGI action extravaganza.

grimjob on Dec 5, 2016


You should pass on Rogue One.

Kenobi on Dec 5, 2016


What does one have to do with the other?

grimjob on Dec 5, 2016


Its a CG fest....duh

Kenobi on Dec 6, 2016


I expect shit like that in Star Wars. I'm not saying that stuff shouldn't exist, I'm saying I was hoping Universal would respect what their old monster movies contributed and bring it back to that style. But I also know it wouldn't be a big draw.

grimjob on Dec 6, 2016


With respect Universal and this in particular keep the CGI to as little as possible. It might not be the horror (though they're are working on it) that film buffs want but it will be great.

mike desouza on Dec 7, 2016


To your point about them working on it, I truly hope you're right. Unfortunately, even though I like Tom Cruise, this particular movie doesn't hold any interest for me. Thanks for the response, I hope you enjoy it!

grimjob on Dec 7, 2016


So you're too stupid to know they use as many practical shots and models as they can in Star Wars as opposed to doing it all CGI like the prequels, Jarjar?

Mission Impossible 6: The Mummy Resurection

PeterGriffin on Dec 5, 2016


The director can't write a script for shit, so I don't have much confidence in his directing abilities.

Payne by name on Dec 6, 2016


Yep, the second I saw Transformers under his list of credits I became seriously worried...

John Black on Apr 1, 2017


Tom Cruise says "CHA", Russell Crowe says "CHING". Hopefully, they got the up front cut, because this will bomb.

Movie Bear on Dec 6, 2016


You lost me at "Tom Cruise"
