Universal Pictures has released their final trailer for their upcoming reboot of The Mummy. The first half of the trailer plays out like the previous trailers, but there is some more exciting action sequences that have been added in the latter half.
My biggest complaint is that, once again, the trailer does not sell me on seeing the film. Luckily for Universal, their featurettes and behind-the-scenes footage have sold me. However, that should never be the case.
The official synopsis is below:
Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy. Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) 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.
