A dark universe is teased in final Mummy trailer

05.18.2017

Anyone following the news around THE MUMMY knows this will be the start of a shared movie universe involving Universal’s slate of monster characters, like Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolf Man. For a while the movie’s marketing has focused mostly on the pure adventure angle, but with a few weeks until release they're really gonna be kicking the “universe” angle into high gear, starting with the final trailer below, in which we see Tom Cruise becoming something else entirely to vanquish the evil mummy (Sofia Boutella).

The mystery as to what Cruise ends up becoming will probably remain a mystery until the movie’s opening night, which in my head is sort of thrilling considering that, given the catalog of characters at their disposal, could be anything. This trailer leads me to believe him becoming a classic monster is certainly a strong possibility, as Cruise appears to have greater strength, speed and durability to take an ass-whipping. Overall the movie is looking more and more entertaining with each trailer, and I hope whatever Universal is trying to get going from this is given a cohesive, thrilling start. That, or it will be another DRACULA UNTOLD.

THE MUMMY arrives June 9.

Comparisons to the Fraser/Sommers series aside, this looks worth a ticket this summer. Cruise rarely picks a bad script (although that "kick her ass" line gives me douche-chills), and gives his all so I'm in.

That trailer couldn't have been anymore annoying with that constant noise.

I ultimately feel that this is a sparkly, hey CGI has improvement a lot since The Fraser Mummy. It isn't showing me anything in the slightest that this will bring anything new to this classic monster franchise.

Isn't this Universals third (failed) attempt at an expanded monster universe?

It looks passably entertaining....

Still not excited for it, but Tom Cruise is the most consistently bankable actor in the last 25 years, so I have faith that he wouldn't have signed on if it wasn't a good film. It better be, because the first two offerings from this series are crap.

I have a feeling not even Tom Cruise can save this. I didn't like his decision to be a part of this franchise since the beginning. But hey, I want to be proven wrong, because Tom Cruise is a cool actor.

Tom Cruise pretty much always delivers. Even his weakest films are more watchable than most, so I am looking forward to this. I would love to see him become something else in the monster universe based on that little clip I just saw of him kicking butt.

I'll give this film a shot. But that trailer was generic.

Dumb

This looks like the first fresh turd of the summer movie season. Not a single one of these trailers has suggested it has any worth. If I traveled back in time fifteen years ago, I would probably want to see this, but nowadays I'll gladly take the 1999 remake with Brendan Fraser over this schlock.

Nope

Movie will flop just like Dracula. Nobody wants to see Tom Cruise vs a Mummy. Pretty sure after this bombs, the whole shared universe idea will be destroyed and rebooted again with Wolfman (which better be a fucking horror movie and not another military vs monster action CGI fucking mess).
