The Mummy trailer 3

Universal has just released a third full-length trailer for The Mummy, the Tom Cruise vehicle that the studio intends to use as a jumping-off point for its new cinematic universe of classic monsters.

This new look at the film rounds out a few more pieces of information about Cruise’s character – including the idea that our protagonist must embrace his inner monster if he ever wants to defeat Sofia Boutella’s ancient creature. Come for the classic “Tom Cruise running” shots, stay for the new spin on old mythology. Take a look at the new The Mummy trailer below.

In the early days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the various films and characters were connected by the mysterious organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D., which was run by the enigmatic super-spy Nick Fury. And while this agency has grown less central to the films as time has gone on, we’re starting to see the MCU effect in other movies that want to build “shared universes.” Just look to Kong: Skull Island, which connects to 2014’s Godzilla through a secretive organization called Monarch.

And wouldn’t you know it? The Mummy, the first entry in a proposed “monsters universe” for Universal Studios, features another top secret organization. It’s called Prodigium and it’s run by Russell Crowe‘s Dr. Henry Jekyll and you just know that we’ll being seeing a lot of more of them, should these movies take off.

The Mummy featurette

Remember Tom Cruise, one of the stars of Cocktail? I guess he’s some kind of hotshot action star now, and apparently – get this – he does a lot of his own stunts. How about that?

I kid, I kid. If you’ve paid even the slightest amount of attention to mainstream American filmmaking over the past decade, you’ve likely seen tons of stories about Cruise hanging from the wing of an airplane as it took off or being strapped to the outside of the world’s tallest building. To the delight of audiences everywhere, he’s reclaimed his reputation from that couch-jumping incident and rebranded himself as the guy who does big stunts for real. That tradition continues with his next action flick, The Mummy, which comes out next month. We’ve already seen him do some zero gravity moves in an airplane, but now there’s a whole new featurette dedicated to Cruise’s stunt prowess. Check out The Mummy featurette below.

The Mummy featurette

We can usually rely on Tom Cruise to save our world in the movies. But in The Mummy, he helps to bring about its destruction by discovering one pissed off mummy, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella) to be exact. Once again, the world will call upon Tom Cruise to save us all in Alex Kurtzman‘s film (even if it’s his fault this time), which is the first entry in the potential Universal Monster Universe.

Below, watch The Mummy featurette, which contains a decent amount of new footage from the adventure movie.

2017 summer movie preview

The summer season is almost upon us and you know what that means: movies are about to get bigger, louder, and more expensive. And, if we’re lucky, they’ll also be pretty great!

The /Film team examined the list of every single major wide release (our indie and streaming preview arrives next week) hitting theaters this summer and argued, debated, and occasionally agreed on which 25 movies we’re most looking forward to watching over the coming months. The staff then voted, ranking them from “movies we want to see” to “movies we want to see right now.” So here’s our 2017 summer movie preview, which features superheroes, evil dolls, talking cars, pirates, sharks, dead strippers, World War II, and so much more.

Cinematic universes are all the rage right now.

Which is why it was met with little surprise — but much chagrin — when Universal Studios announced their plans to create a movie franchise out of classic monster movie reboots. Another cinematic universe? Haven’t we had enough interconnected franchises, with Marvel and DC at each other’s throats over superhero sequels, Warner Bros creating their own MonsterVerse with Godzilla and King Kong, and whatever the heck is going on with that Man in Black/21 Jump Street crossover?

But producer Chris Morgan, one of the minds behind the whole Universal Monsters operation, assures audiences that Universal’s movie universe will be as different from the MCU and DCEU as possible.
