The Mummy is the first chapter in Dark Universe, a new world of monsters and mayhem from Universal. We’ve heard a good bit about the company’s plans for its new extended universe, but there’s no better introduction than to watch five news clips for the movie.
Tom Cruise stars as Nick Morton and in this clip he is teamed with Jake Johnson as Chris Vail. They’ve come under fire while on a mission of some sort and things do not look good for them.
Now teamed with Jenny (Annabelle Wallis), Nick finds himself again under attack. Are we sensing a pattern? Where are those parachutes, anyway?
Somehow, Nick has survived the previous clip and he is introduced to his new location. We’ll allow Dr. Jekyll (Russell Crowe) to explain.
Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) was teased in the previous clip and here we receive a proper overview of how she became a formidable monster.
For all her inherent menace, Ahmanet doesn’t necessarily look that threatening, though her encounter with Cruise in this clip, urged on by Wallis, suggests that our hero just may be overmatched.
We can’t wait to see how all these story threads weave together in The Mummy, which opens in theaters nationwide on Friday.
