Universal have released a brand new trailer for the upcoming reboot of ‘The Mummy’ and someone definitely woke up on the wrong side of, the er, tomb. This new trailer gives us a greater insight into who Princess Ahmanet was and why she’s now wreaking havoc.  It also appears she’s the reason why Tom Cruise’s character, Nick Morton, wakes up in a body bag after being found dead after a plane crash. 

Sofia Boutella is the Mummy at large, and joining her and Cruise in this film Universal hopes kick starts their ‘Monsters Universe’ are Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, and Russel Crowe, who is playing Dr. Henry Jekyll and is likely to be a key character to link the future films. 

The first trailer didn’t give too much away, and I wasn’t really sold on this reboot. However, now we know more about Ahmanet and her plan, and had a better look at the visuals in the film, I’m actually quite excited to see this reboot. Love him or hate him, Cruise always put 110% into his films and the stunts he performs and no doubt he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve for this film to surprise us. 

“Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess 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. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.”
