Final Trailer for 'The Mummy' with Tom Cruise Unleashes Hell on Earth
"It takes a monster to defeat a monster." Universal has unleashed one final trailer for the new take on The Mummy, which we've already seen plenty of footage for over the last few months. That new tagline makes me wonder if there's some interesting twists and secrets in this movie. This action-packed new version of The Mummy stars Tom Cruise, with Sofia Boutella playing the new "bad guy" mummy. Cruise plays Nick Morton, one of the characters who decides to dig up the new "mummy", a priestess named Ahmanet who ushers in "a new world of gods and monsters". The full cast includes Russell Crowe as a mysterious character, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Javier Botet. I'm curious about this, but really not that excited for it. The part with Tom Cruise's eyes in this is a very interesting little tease.
Here's the third & final official trailer for Alex Kurtzman's The Mummy, direct from Uni's YouTube:
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 everywhere starting June 9th this summer. So who's into this?

I may be wrong, but Tom Cruise was closest to acting in Magnolia. He can face the destruction of the world, but is lost when he needs to face real drama ...

Magnolia was absolutely the best "acting" he ever did - but what's funny is that he seemed to play himself in that movie. A cock-sure arrogant prick who's entire persona existed to protect himself from ever feeling like he actually wasn't loved. Sure was a great movie. This one? Ugh. Just looks boring at best.

Well, 'he seemed to play himself in that movie' might be very veritable description of his acting abilities. To imagine, for example, Jason Robards as his partner in that movie is also another interesting creative counterposition. As for this one, yeah, same old repeating of all the cliches. But with better production value. Which is not necessary a good thing, not at all ...

Tambo to the max!

Interesting new version. Not 100% convinced and I hope Cruise isn't as tired as he was in the last Reacher film.

Well observed. I thought the same thing. The last jack reacher was very lame and without energy...

Tom Cruise in "Regurgitated Again: Ditto Infinite."

Strong cast, but so far I'm not really sure what to make of it all... just hoping this won't be a Van Helsing.

Better "wrap this up" in a bag and toss it. Ha!... I'm sorry....
