Universal Pictures has released a new batch of still from the upcoming reboot of The Mummy directed by Alex Kurtzman.
In The Mummy, Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton unearths an ancient evil when he discovers the tomb of Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella), an Egyptian Princess who was imprisoned when she summoned a great evil and murdered her father after he failed to uphold his promise to make her pharaoh after he sired a son.
The new images offer a look at Cruise as well as Russell Crowe as Dr. Jekyll working with Kurtzman behind the scenes and tease the ancient evil and action to come in the film that serves as the launch pad for Universal’s shared cinematic Dark Universe full of gods and monsters.
You can check out the stills 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 this Friday, June 9.
