This summer, Universal will kick-off their shared cinematic universe of classic monsters with their reboot of The Mummy. Loosely based on the original 1932 film, the reboot will offer a contemporary take on the iconic movie monster and now Universal has released two brand new featurettes that give fans a glimpse of the films story, action and suspense.
The first featurette, released thought Syfy Wire, offers a behind-the-scenes look at the film and how the filmmakers attempted to give a modern spin to the classic story.

Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess 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.
Directed by Alex Kurtzman, the film stars Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella , Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, and Russell Crowe.
The Mummy will be released in theaters on June 9, 2017.
