Tom Cruise’s Mummy reboot gets official synopsis…

May 10th, 2016 by Marc Comments


While Brendan Fraser’s Mummy movies may still be pretty fresh in our minds, we’re looking ahead to Tom Cruise’s upcoming Universal Monsters version.

The second movie in the studio’s new ‘monster shared universe’ The Mummy will pick up after the decidedly lacklustre Dracula Untold.

The new movie, due next year directed by Alex Kurtzman from a script by Jon Spaihts, sees Cruise playing a former special forces officer with Annabelle Wallis playing a scientist and Sofia Boutella playing the monster of the piece.

Now the movie has an official synopsis:

“Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (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.”

So there you go… are you excited to see a universe open up that will include The Invisible man, Frankenstein, Dracula, The Creature from the Black Lagoon and much more?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
