Universal Pictures is re-booting it’s classic line-up of monsters with it’s first film, The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise.
The actor plays the role of Nick Morton, who faces off against a vengeful ancient Egyptian princess named Ahmanet, played by Star Trek Beyond’s Sofia Boutella.
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen, 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. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
The Mummy will open in North American theaters on June 9th, 2017.
