The New ‘Mummy’ Trailer Paints It Black
Universal Pictures has released the new Mummy trailer, featuring the opening chords of The Rolling Stones “Paint it Black.”
Tom Cruise headlines the directing debut of Alex Kurtzman, which finds Cruise and his trusty team accidentally awakening a priestess named Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) from her roomy tomb in contemporary times.
It looks like Cruise’s character dies more times in this movie that in Edge of Tomorrow. Oh well, whatever. The remake is poised to set a shared universe for Universal, and also stars Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, and Russell Crowe.
Watch the film’s new trailer after the jump.
Though safely entombed in a crypt 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.
The Mummy opens in theaters June 9th. Meanwhile, Javier Bardem is on board for a future Frankenstein film, while Johnny Depp has signed on for The Invisible Man.
