The final trailer for The Mummy has been unleashed. The trailer touts the beginning of ‘The Dark Universe’ they are trying to establish. This third sneak peek puts the focus squarely on Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton and the lengths he will have to go to stop an impending new world of gods and monsters.
This latest trailer gives us the best look so far into where Tom Cruise’s character, who has apparently been cursed with superpowers, fits into this scheme of building a new universe. The trailer is narrated by Dr. Jekyll (Russell Crowe) and the trailer opens with the now-familiar plane crash that should have killed Cruise, but which he miraculously survives. It’s soon revealed by Dr. Jekyll that Nick Morton (Cruise) survived due to a curse placed on him by the Mummy (Sofia Boutella). According to Jekyll, Morton will need to embrace his own inner monster to have any chance of taking down the villainous creature.
We’re still on the fence. Thoughts?
