Universal Pictures has released a new international trailer for The Mummy, the reboot that will launch its classic monsters shared-universe.
The trailer includes a brand new opening scene featuring Tom Cruise and Jake Johnson. With the Great Pyramids in the background, we see the pair standing on a rocky cliff and examining the valley below. Johnson's character is reluctant about going "down there," but Cruise's character -- who is using binoculars and holding a map -- is certain there is treasure to be found and wants to proceed.
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (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.
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 cast features Tom Cruise (Jack Reacher, Top Gun), Russell Crowe (The Nice Guys, Gladiator), and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Star Trek Beyond), as well as Courtney B. Vance (The People Vs. O.J. Simpson), Annabelle Wallis (Annabelle, Peaky Blinders), Marwan Kenzari (Ben-Hur), and Jake Johnson (New Girl, Jurassic World).
Alex Kurtzman, the screenwriter and producer behind Star Trek Into Darkness and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is on board to make his directorial debut, working off of a script penned by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Doctor Strange).
The Mummy will lumber into theaters June 9, 2017.
