Universal Pictures is taking a very different direction with Tom Cruise's The Mummy. The first trailer shows a Mission: Impossible meets Indiana Jones meets Suicide Squad-like mashup look.


The reboot and hopeful Monsters Universe franchise kick-off film looks nothing like the comedic and period-based 1999 version of The Mummy starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz.

In the trailer, we see Tom Cruise say, "what the hell," about a flock of birds coming towards a plane cockpit, try to stay alive as the plane goes down and suddenly awaken from a body bag in a morgue, as well as a look at Russell Crowe as Dr. Jekyll with a voice-over of "a new world of gods and monsters."

From Universal Pictures, The Mummy's official storyline:
Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella, Kingsman: The Secret Service) 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.
Cruise is joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World) and Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson).

The action-adventure film, which hits theaters June 9, 2017, is helmed by director/producer Alex Kurtzman. Sean Daniel, who produced the most recent Mummy trilogy, produces alongside Kurtzman and Chris Morgan.

Universal has already scheduled multiple untitled Monsters universe films for 2018 and 2019, specifically Dark Universe: Monsters Franchise Film (2018) and Dark Universe: Monsters Franchise Film (2019). The possibilities for the release slots include The Wolfman, Bride of Frankenstein and Frankenstein, among others.
