Production is underway in London on Universal Pictures’ reboot of The Mummy, part of their new shared universe. The official synopsis has just been released.

Though safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennium and terrors that defy human comprehension. 

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinth 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.
