The first trailer for Universal horror reboot The Mummy has arrived, and in a surprisingly ballsy move it kills off banner star Tom Cruise within the first minute.
Of course, this being a Tom Cruise film, his character Nick Morton easily shrugs off his certain death after a terrifying plane crash sequence (with some great Inception-style scenes of people being thrown round the plane), ripping out of a body bag to take on Sofia Boutella’s creepy Mummy and her weird double-pupilled eyes. Did they all have those in Egypt?
Anyway, based on what we see in the trailer (including a deadly chase through London), it looks like Cruise’s take on the franchise will be the most action-packed yet, and we can’t wait to see what other stunts they have planned. No doubt Nick Morton has a few more near-misses with death yet to come.
