The second trailer for Universals’ ‘The Mummy’, was released over the weekend and people don’t really know what to think.
The movie is Universal’s first film in their soon to be a franchise, Universal Monster Cinematic Universe. Eventually, we will have films for The Invisible Man, Wolf Man, Van Helsing, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the Bride of Frankenstein, but first, The Mummy. The story for this film seems to go like this. Tyler Colt (Tom Cruise) is an explorer and along with Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis) and SGT Vail (Jake Johnson) uncovers the ancient tomb of The Mummy (Sofia Boutella). She is awoken and kills. Tyler survives through evil, and he and his crew must thwart her evil plans of the takeover with Dr. Henry Jekyll’s (Russell Crowe) help (yes that Dr. Jekyll).
The movie has a lot of action, but the company swears it will be a horror. The soundtrack is off to people and doesn’t really feel like a Mummy movie. Hopefully, the film will differ, as the Universal Monster movies are some of my favorite films.
The Mummy will be out June 9, 2017.
