Universal Releases First Trailer for ‘The Mummy’ Reboot With Tom Cruise

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for the reboot of ‘The Mummy’ starring Tom Cruise. The trailer is set on a plane carrying the tomb of an ancient queen ‘Ahmanet’, played by Sofia Boutella not long before all hell breaks loose taking the plane down and soon discovering they’ve unleashed an evil spirit. The reboot appears to have a slightly darker feel compared to the original series starring funny-man Brendan Fraser.

In The Mummy, Cruise portrays archeologist Nick Morton who must return Ahmanet back to her place before time runs out. The reboot of The Mummy is in line with Universal Studio’s planned reboot of monster movies including Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, Van Hellsing, Dracula, The Invisible Man, and The Wolfman.
