After laying dormant for eight years since the release of 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor', Universal Studios has opened up the sarcophagus of the franchise for a new big budget reboot starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella. Today the studio has released the first full theatrical trailer for the film.
The 'Mummy' reboot is being built from the ground up to launch a cinematic universe of the studio's classic horror icons, which will ultimately include The Invisible Man, The Wolf Man and vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing. As the kick-starter for a new multiverse, there's quite a bit of expectation on its shoulders for first time director Alex Kurtzman, but if this footage is anything to go by it could be a fun ride indeed.
'The Mummy' is set to scare cinemagoers in 2D, 3D and IMAX cinemas worldwide from June 9, 2017.
