The Mummy poster released by Universal shows Sofia Boutella’s creepy double iris
Universal Pictures showed the second trailer for the upcoming film The Mummy at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Nevada today. Though the rest of us won’t see if for a bit (we’ll get it on Sunday), we have a brand new The Mummy poster. In it, we see the ancient queen Ahmanet, played by Sofia Boutella (of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Star Trek Beyond) and her very creepy double irised-gaze. You can check out The Mummy poster in the gallery below. The film also stars Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible, Top Gun).
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen 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.
Cruise and Boutella are joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson) and Oscar winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
Coming to theaters on June 9, 2017, The Mummy is directed by Alex Kurtzman, who also produces alongside Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious series, Wanted) and Sean Daniel (The Mummy trilogy, The Best Man series). Jon Spaihts and Christopher McQuarrie wrote the screenplay, and Bobby Cohen executive produces. It’s being planned as the first film in the Universal Monster cinematic universe with plans for The Wolfman, The Invisible Man, Bride of Frankenstein, and Van Helsing all in various stages of development.
