Univeral Pictures has released a new featurette for the reboot of The Mummy offering the first look at Mr. Hyde in the upcoming film directed by Alex Kurtzman.
The Mummy which stars Tom Cruise features the rise of the ancient evil Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) and will also lay the groundwork for a shared cinematic universe full of monsters. At the center of it all is Russell Crowe as Dr. Jekyll, the head of a society dedicated to fighting monsters known as Prodigium.
While we’ve seen plenty of Dr. Jekyll in the marketing for the film so far, the new featurette reveals the Doctor after he’s completed his transformation into Mr. Hyde. You can check it out below.
The film stars Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Annabelle Wallis, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
The Mummy hits theaters June 9, 2017.
