Here’s the official synopsis:
Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy. Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (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. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
Tom Cruise conveys a considerable measure of respectability to The Mummy. More than one would perhaps anticipate from the principal section in the potential Universal Monster Movie Universe, halfway in light of the fact that it’s following up the lamentable Van Helsing, The Wolfman, and, a motion picture deleted from the new universe of beasts, Dracula Untold. Widespread has attempted to take their notable creatures back to the wide screen previously, yet Cruise’s inclusion in this universe, particularly in the wake of seeing him in the strong trailer, rouses some certainty — and perhaps in light of the fact that you know you’re as a rule in for a fun time with most motion pictures featuring Tom Cruise.
Underneath, watch The Mummy featurette, which highlights footage not appeared in the trailer.
In The Mummy, Alex Kurtzman’s second element as an executive, Cruise plays Nick Morton. We don’t learn a lot about the character from the trailer, with the exception of that he perhaps uncovered an old princess’ (Sofia Boutella) tomb, for which he’ll confront some awful results. Along for the film’s voyage from the Middle East to London are performers Annabelle Wallis (Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (New Girl), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson), and, playing Dr. Jekyll, Russell Crowe (The Nice Guys). Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) and Jon Spaihts (Passengers) co-composed the script, which is promising.
One note Kurtzman gave Cruise was to shout for his life amid the plane crash arrangement, and that sounds like something filmgoers would need to see one of our most tried and true on-screen legends do. We’ve seen Cruise play frightful some time recently, yet in the event that there’s any another motion picture he ought to be unnerved in, it’s this one. Ideally it is as frightening as Kurtzman and all included portray it as being.
