First look at Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe in an intense teaser for The Mummy

And Sofia Boutella is the first woman to play the ancient evil princess


Tom Cruise is bringing The Mummy back to life in the teaser trailer for the latest reboot of the movie, with creepy CGI effects and a lot of action. 


The story is set in modern times as an ancient princess awakes from her tomb and only Cruise (who is executively producing as well as starring) can stop her from destroying the world.

Remarkably, this version from Universal will be the first time the mummy has been played by a woman, with Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service) portraying the monster.

Cruise’s former soldier will be joined by Russell Crowe’s Dr Jekyll, who is being introduced as part of Universal’s plans to create a monster-verse which joins characters from across the Universal Monsters catalogue.


We have a feeling we’ll be seeing a bit of Jekyll’s evil side, Mr Hyde, too.
