“I saw her. She is real.” “You have no idea what you have unleashed.” Welcome to a New World of Gods & Monsters in the reboot of ‘The Mummy’ franchise. “She did something to me.” “You are alive because you were cursed.” “Cursed by what?” Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization.
“What’s ever in there has been safely hidden for two-thousand years. This isn’t a tomb. It’s a prison.” Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella) 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 very essence of evil calls to you now.” Witness the beginning of a dark universe. “Because of your actions this ancient power has returned. You are alive because you were chosen.” 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.
“It takes a monster to defeat a monster.” “She’s using you.” “She will not stop until she has remade our world into her own.” “You can’t run you can’t escape. She’s got plans for you.” Directed by Alex Kurtzman and written by Jon Spaihts and Christopher McQuarrie, ‘The Mummy’ reboot stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Oscar® winner Russell Crowe.
“Welcome to a new world of gods and monsters.” Russell Crowe is playing Dr. Jekyll, presumably as a prelude to his own spinoff standalone adventure. ‘The Mummy’ hits theaters June 9, 2017.
