The Mummy (Universal) Release: June 9th 2017

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 brings terrors that defy human comprehension. She has had her destiny unjustly taken from her. She is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia. Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond fame has the role of this ancient princess.

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity. It also brings a balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
