The Mummy – coming out next 2017 – is the movie that has the demanding job of (re)creating a new, shared universe of Universal Monsters. It’s also a reboot of Stephen Sommers’ The Mummy (1999), that was one of my favourite movies of my childhood – even though the first I watched it, it scared me so much to walk around holding my cat for few days.
Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service; Star Trek: Beyond) will play the role of the terrifying creature, joined by Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis (The Tudors, Peaky Blinders) and Russell Crowe as Dr. Henry Jekyll (!). However, it seems that the Dracula played by Luke Evans for Dracula Untold (2014) isn’t taking part in this movie – will he join them in the future?
Here the first trailer tease fot The Mummy; the full trailer will be showed next Sunday.
