The second trailer for The Mummy movie starring Tom Cruise gives us a better look at director Alex Kurtzman movie that Universal hopes will kick off a new Monster Cinematic Universe.
The Kurtzman version of The Mummy, with Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella will hit theaters in early June when Princess Ahmanet is set loose during modern times after having been cursed and mummified.
This newest trailer gives us a better look at the story and where Kurtzman and Universal look to take this latest incarnation of the Mummy. After watching the trailer I saw some things that I liked and that intrigued me and of course I saw a few things that I didn’t care for as well. My first impression tells me this will no doubt be a fun action adventure from the very start and not stopping until the credits roll and sometimes I like that in a movie.
The concerning parts of the movie for me was seeing some of the same sorta of beats that I saw in the Brendan Fraser Mummy movies from the late 90’s and early 2000’s. I enjoyed those movies for what they were, but with this new take I was hoping to see something different that would make me say wow and I’m not sure I got that. I enjoyed this latest trailer and plan on seeing the movie when it hits theaters with an open mind.
This is only Kurtzman’s second time in the directors chair and he’s been given the opportunity to potentially kick off a new cinematic universe. More known for his script writing and producing it makes we wonder if hes got the chops to pull it off.
The Mummy will be in theaters on June 9th.
