Latest Trailer For The Mummy Confirms That Tom Cruise Will Have Monster-Fighting Superpowers

Video: Universal's hoping that its reboot of the Mummy franchise will be just the kind of hit that will sell the world on its shared universe of gods and monsters. The latest trailer for the movie shows just how different this take on the Mummy story will be.


When Brendan Fraser took on the Mummy back in 1999, he spent a fair amount of time running away and screaming in understandable terror. Tom Cruise, though, will apparently have a much closer (and beneficial) relationship with Princess Ahmanet, the Mummy in his movie.

We've known for a while now that Ahmanet would be responsible for resurrecting Cruise's character after a plane crash, but in the new trailer, he goes toe to toe with the mummy with supernatural strength. He also manages to do that weird four-eyed thing that the mummy does, which, you know, is disgusting.

The Mummy hits theatres June 8.

    I feel like the Brendon Fraser Mummy captured the Indiana Jones/pulp action/radio serial style of movie in such a great way. The trailers from the Tom Cruise Mummy certainly don't make me feel the same way. It really shows that it's firmly in the modern age of transformers, TMNT etc where the movies are flashy and trying to be serious more than fun.
