I love the classic Universal Monster films. They were part of my childhood and as a horror film they have always been part of my life. Of course there have been many versions of The Mummy, most recently Stephen Somers versions from 17 years ago, which I love to little bitty pieces (Patience is a virtue. Not right now it isnt…I am a librarian) This looks to try and capture the horror bit of the Mummy and stars Tom Cruise whose films we tend to watch even though he might be complete nutter. It llooks good and the perfect summer flick. What do you think? Plans to see it?

Summary: 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 (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) 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. Cruise is joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson) and Oscar® winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).…Opens June 9th, 2017.
