Tom Cruise and the world are in trouble in first trailer for ‘The Mummy’


It’s the beginning of the week, and sometimes a case of the Mondays leads to a down day at the office. Most of the time, that down day doesn’t lead to the unleashing of an ancient and angry paranormal force into the universe. For Tom Cruise, that’s exactly what happens in the first trailer for Universal‘s reboot of The Mummy.

While transporting an ominous sarcophagus, the plane in which Nick Morton (Cruise) is in goes down after being assaulted by an enormous flock of birds summoned by the titular entity. Of course, the sarcophagus is fine and unleashes Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) into the world. Morton enlists at least some help from Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russel Crowe). If you weren’t aware, Universal is building a cinematic universe for their monster franchises, so yes, it’s that Dr. Henry Jekyll. In the meantime, Ahmanet brings London to its knees within some fast paced action scenes. Check it out:

The Mummy also stars Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, and Courtney B. Vance, with Alex Kurtzman directing. You can catch The Mummy in theaters June 9, 2017.
