The Mummy Trailer

"This isn't a tomb. It's a prison." Universal has unwrapped the second official trailer for the new take on the Universal monster known as The Mummy. This action-packed new version of The Mummy stars Tom Cruise, with Sofia Boutella playing the new "bad guy". 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, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Javier Botet. This trailer has some very cool action sequences, and I'm curious more than I expected to be. But I'm still not sure how good this is going to turn out, even with Cruise. Take a look below.

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

You can also watch the first official trailer for Kurtzman's The Mummy here, plus the making of featurette.

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?

It looks like Tom Cruise's character dies more times in this movie that in Edge of Tomorrow

I mean it doesn't look bad.

It will be 1000 times better than Mummy 3 for sure.

I'll be irrationally upset if the functionality of her double pupils isn't explained and ends up simply a design choice. Not that this movie seems that interesting to me... May eventually watch it for Jake Johnson, though.

You would fool yourself if you expect a transcendental explanation of that double iris. It's made this way because it's cool and because why not.

tarek on Apr 2, 2017


Double pupil was historically a sign of the "evil eye", tracking back from the greek authors writings on Egypt. It was also one of the way to identify some powerful witches in legends. In ancient China is was on the contrary a sign of power and great insight. Nothing new, but fitting for an evil egyptian witch.

Interesting, didn't know that. Cheers! 🙂

I'll always give a new cruise flick a shot...I thought it was an odd choice by him when it was first announced but I hope it works

Mad Tambo going all out again. Don't really fancy this.

Carpola on Apr 2, 2017


I like bad girls and only for that shallow reason I am interested in this. Other than that, it's another cliche among many others. And please, change the music ...

Let's give him one thing Bo: he's a commited actor.

tarek on Apr 2, 2017


I understand your reasoning Bo. I'm not a fan of the man, but I like his acting. He's had some gems, and while I don't agree with his personal decisions, he's got some acting chops.

RAW_D on Apr 2, 2017


Everyone jumps on the wagon that he's got no depth as an actor, forgetting Born on the 4th of July. Bo's just don't like his personal beliefs and that clouds his judgement.

Steven Lewis on Apr 4, 2017


;D No. He's committed to his craft. He does his own stunts without a double. and actors/actresses who worked with him respect the man for his hard work and commitment. Now, when it comes to your "subjective" assessment on his acting skills, I can get it. Few actors make me grind my teeth for the same "subjective" reasons. cheers.

tarek on Apr 3, 2017


Bo...that was...a hell of a rant! One of the best I've had to read since a while. ;D

If you can't get beyond what someone does outside of the movies you must not be able to watch a lot of them. Woody Allen, John Ford, Mel Gibson and a million others must be people you can not watch movies from. Also you are missing out just on some good movie that Tom Cruise has made, including: Magnolia, Collateral, The Last Samurai, Rain Man and Minority Report just to name a few. So I hope if you don't watch his movies for moral reasons you at least do it for others.

eris on Apr 2, 2017


I have no problem with you not liking his movies. I was saying if you don't like him because of his life outside of acting, then I hope you hold others to that same standard.

eris on Apr 2, 2017


are you suggesting Hillary Clinton would have been a better choice for president? if so, you don't understand the definition of "evil".

dan on Apr 2, 2017


Dan...Hum...You flagged yourself as a Trump fan. All Trump fan use this very deflecting rhetoric when someone talks bad about their guru.

tarek on Apr 3, 2017


not a "trump fan". nor am i using rhetoric - I'm not sure you even know what the word means. i asked you a question - would you care to answer or will you just keep showing your poor reading comprehension skills?

dan on Apr 5, 2017


Of course I love chocolate! What was the question?

tarek on Apr 6, 2017


Well, I'm not much of his fan either, believe me. So, no worries. And I especially agree about Scientology. That cult has its influence here, too. In fact, I lost friend over that craziness (he took his life once he realized what kind of sickness it is). I couldn't convince him to give up on it, but after he saw Scientology for what it is, a sick hoax, he gave up everything. It happened in our hometown. He just invested too many years and generally too much before he realized why it doesn't help him. I guess, he couldn't admit to himself and to others that Scientology is a bad choice. I can never stop feeling sorry about all that, because I couldn't recognize the moment of his crisis to react and help him. So, if I need to say something against the Scientology, I can do it all day. And Tom Cruise in that respect is someone disgusting to me. I watch films with him only occasionally, no reason to follow his, huh, career. That guy is just using his opportunities and has no shame in what he does.And I don't care much about it. As for the choice of music, you've said it good enough. Cheers ...

I'm not fond of the idea of Tom Cruises character being on equal ground as The Mummy. You know it will predictably end in a showdown. Also, is this Cruises secret for staying youthful?

RAW_D on Apr 2, 2017


He looking younger in this than the last Jack Reacher film.....

Steven Lewis on Apr 4, 2017


Oh dear.

Quanah on Apr 2, 2017


This doesn't look so bad at all. Still a strange idea to see Tom Cruise in a mummy movie...

ari smulders on Apr 2, 2017


Wait should she have cuneiform on her face instead of hieroglyphics??? Probably better things to worry about.

DAVIDPD on Apr 2, 2017


Because probably this Mummy was some Babylonian evil spirit.

tarek on Apr 3, 2017


With the pyramids?

Steven Lewis on Apr 4, 2017


Demons can travel long distance.

tarek on Apr 4, 2017



Steven Lewis on Apr 4, 2017


I'm not crazy. If I were I would know it... Hum?... ;D She is probably Lilītu.

tarek on Apr 4, 2017


Can't see it myself to be honest. Other than the use of an exotic name with very loose ties.

Steven Lewis on Apr 4, 2017


Ok. Let's try a new approach: She is some kind of Alien. ( I don't like this idea. Reminds me of the awful X-Men Apocalypse).

tarek on Apr 4, 2017


Ancient Aliens!!! I can see that actually being spun - lol

Steven Lewis on Apr 4, 2017


I'm afraid we are on to something... ;D

tarek on Apr 4, 2017


I'm not that excited that this is what they decided to do for the Mummy reboot. But, if they are planning on doing a mash-up film with the other Universal monsters then I'm calling this now - at the end Cruise becomes the Mummy.

serke on Apr 3, 2017


I love Cruise but Kurtzman, what a talentless tool he is. He can't write for shit so I can't imagine his directing will be any better.

Payne by name on Apr 4, 2017


Looks pants.
