Get your first look at The Mummy in trailer sneak peek & poster

4 days ago

The trend with modern movies is that before you can see a full trailer for the film you must watch a teaser for the trailer. This gives you a good 15 seconds of footage and is supposed to get you ramped up for the trailer, which is already a tease for the full movie. It’s an experiment in INCEPTION becoming real, and I normally don’t condone it. But in the case of THE MUMMY with Tom Cruise, I’ll let it slide. Directed by Alex Kurtzman from a script by Jon Spaihts, this new version of the monster classic promises to be a much different version than any MUMMY movie we've seen, not just in visual effects, but in tone as well. Though brief there is plenty to witness before the trailer drops on Sunday, and I have to admit I'm reasonably excited. Damn you, marketing executives!

Watch now!

Like I said there’s only a good 15 seconds of footage, but it offered plenty of goodies, like a scary glimpse at Sofia Boutella’s mummy character and Tom Cruise running. I'm super excited to see more of Boutella in action on Sunday when the full trailer comes out, and I want to see if they're really going to capitalize on the horror elements that have been promised. However I will also accept more of Tom Cruise running.

THE MUMMY arrives June 9.

It would be really hard to get frightened or terrified over the sight of Sofia Boutella's beautiful curves wrapped in cloth.

Already as forgetful as Dracula Untold (*shiver* that movie title alone...). Seriously, the classics, like them or not, are classics for various reasons. One of which is they each have monsters no one has forgotten about in close to 100 years. Dracula Untold, The Mummy, no one will remember these new ones in two years.

Shame on you Universal!

Well this sure looks like yet another bland and unoriginal "edgy/modern" take on a timeless classic monster. From the same studio who pioneered the genre no less. Shame on you Universal. And yay, more CGI monsters...NOT.

Looks fun

Looks like a good time. This feels like one of those times where some people have decided they don't like a movie before it has even come out. I don't know why people are so down on the idea of a Universal Monsters shared universe. They already did it back in the 30's/40's. Could be a good breath of fresh air from the constant stream of superhero movies (which I'm starting to grow a bit tired of).

So people can watch a dog take a dump and would call it revolutionary

Seriously, so many people here just like everything and it's maddening. You don't have to like everything.

This, this, and fucking this!

I swear man, people like EVERYTHING now, no matter how dog shit it looks. Mediocre movies are major successes now because that is what people are used to watching, just as long as it has a popular media property ala super heros or popular monsters.

Just look at dog shit suicide squad and how well that did.

Critical mind. Something lacking in a lot of people seems like, because this looks so forgetful after only 15 seconds.

Duh Fug Universal....

Quit trying to make your classic monsters into g'damn SUPERHERO movies!!! Dracula Untold was horse shit and this looks like it's treading that same path. The classic movie monsters aren't legendary because their set pieces, sweet action scenes and shiny font selections. They're classics because they're period based, centered story lines with human elements, deep senses of mystery and melancholic atmosphere. The closest we've come to a proper re-make was Benicio's Wolfman and that still suffered

Resident Evil money. Idiots money.... but you're flushing your legacy down the drain. Sunday better blow my tits off. Where's Shane Black's Monster Squad sequel at? Maybe that will do my fave monsters justice. #fingerscrossed

"Sunday better blow my tits off." First off Thumbs Up for that line alone. Second, what you need to understand is this monster revival is supposedly Universals attempt to set up their own Marvel eske shared Universe. So get ready for a few more of these at the very least.

Hmmmmm

I agree with the Enchantress comment.
I want scary, rotting, evil, ancient monsters and mummies. Not sexy, fashion editorial ready Halloween make-up mummies. Tom Cruise is attached, so I have some hopes, unless this is Scientology's way of putting him back out in a mainstream "horror' movie after (gulp) the Reacher movie(s).

The font is terrible. This looks like a movie from the 90s. So cheesy. Hope the full trailer will be more convincing...

So this is really happening. Still not sure what Dr. Jekyll has to do with a mummy (or with Universal Horror), but I'm at least curious.

not sure what to make of that. I hope the film is suspenseful to some degree and it's not just explosions and big set pieces! It's the mummy after all, should have a horror element to it!

Also I hope it's not cruise just running about getting pulled about on wires in front of things blowing up. The guy is a legend but he's not stepped outside his comfort zone in years. Hopefully this is something he gets to do a bit of proper acting in.

Shades of Suicide Squad's Enchantress

I hated Suicide Squad and the quick look of the mummy in this reminds me of probably the worst comic book villain of all time in that of Enchantress. TBH, the only reason I'm remotely excited for this is Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe. I liked the old Brendan Fraser version, even if it really was a poor man's Indiana Jones.

Solid teaser and effectively intense. Looking forward to this one since Cruise doesn't waste his time, effort, and talent on uninteresting projects.

Jack reacher 1 & 2 are mediocre action movies, the last mi film was also pretty medicore. What else has cruise even been in in the last decade that's remotely out his comfort zone? Knight and day lol

Cruise certainly has a schtick he likes doing. If anything was different, I'd say Tropic Thunder, even though it was really a big cameo.

Rogue Nation as mediocre?? I don't think we were watching the same film since it's arguably the best of the franchise.

Yes it is extremely average and no way is it even remotely near the best of the franchise, that's just ridiculous! It's got easily the weakest villain of the franchise and the plot is all over the place with silly pointless twist! Honestly you might personally like it but to say it's the arguably the best of the bunch is plain stupid!

"The Mummy", text is cheesy and I'm kinda meh on the tagline trying to hint of a bigger monster world. I mean, they don't know yet if this movie will be successful. The teaser does look promising though.

I LOLed at the sexy mummy line. I hope she's not like SS's Enchantress, a character that went a long way towards ruining that movie.

Poster Tagline Is Cheesy

But the brief sequences look great. Cruise knows how to pick his projects so I'm confident this will be entertaining.
