Wow, who would’ve thought the idea of a Universal Monster Cinematic Universe would be so exciting, but here I am gushing over the teaser to a trailer for the upcoming 2017 The Mummy starring Tom Cruise.
I left the teaser below to check out, and there isn’t a whole lot to describe, but we get a chance to see Sofia Boutella as the titular mummy, Tom Cruise says a line, and we get a real quick glimpse at Russell Crowe who is co-starring as Dr. Jekyll and maybe Mr. Hyde.
But it isn’t so much what’s in front of the camera that excites me as what’s behind the camera. Alex Kurtzman is a terrific writer who is finally sitting in the director’s chair, and I can’t wait to see the finished product.
So what did you think of the trailer teaser (I hate that this is a thing now)? Are you excited for the trailer? Are you already plotting out when to see The Mummy? Let me know.
