A new sneak peek featurette has been unveiled by Universal Pictures for their remake of The Mummy. In the video we see Russell Crowe transform into Dr. Jekyll as he schools Nick (Tom Cruise) on “evil”.
We also see what appears to be a vampire skull, a possible link to Dracula. While Dracula Untold (2014) featured Luke Evans as the famous blood-thirsty character, it bombed, so a new Dracula is in the works.
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen 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.
Tom Cruise (Jack Reacher, Mission Impossible) stars alongside, Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (American Crime Story), Annabelle Wallis (Annabelle) and Russell Crowe (Gladiator) as Dr. Henry Jekyll.
The Mummy, directed by Alex Kurtzman and written by Jon Spaihts and Christopher McQuarrie, is set to premiere in theaters nationwide on June 9, 2017 from Universal.
