THE MUMMY is an upcoming 2017 action-adventure horror film directed by Alex Kurtzman (People Like Us; producing Transformers, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible series) and written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Doctor Strange, Passengers). It is a reboot of The Mummy franchise and the first installment in the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe. The film stars Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, and Russell Crowe.
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.
