Sofia Boutella is all wrapped up in new Mummy photos

A wise man once said, “Twas beauty that killed the beast.” At least I think it was a wise man. Could’ve been someone else. Either way, I think when it comes to these new THE MUMMY photos of Sofia Boutella as the ancient baddie the line should be “beauty is the beast.”

A litany of new photos from Coming Soon put Boutella front and center as an ancient queen who awakens to the modern day and proceeds to wreak some Egyptian plague-style havoc. She’s dressed in what looks like traditional mummy-looking garb, with a sleek, sexy hook of course. As for the makeup I’m picking up a QUEEN OF THE DAMNED vibe, with what looks like tattoos/possibly jewlery across her face. The scene itself appears to be some sort of action sequence, with extras flying about and Boutella dashing like a mad mummy across the street. Get a gander below.

These aren’t the first images we’ve gotten of the new MUMMY movie. Earlier photos showed actors Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis looking very un-mummy like, so thank God for Sofia Boutella picking up the slack there. A more detailed description of Boutella’s character is as follows:

Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) 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 MUMMY is set for June 8, 2017 starring Sofia Boutella, Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, while Russell Crowe is reported to be playing Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde.
