The Mummy is back, with Universal rebooting the franchise. This new adaptation of The Mummy is very different than the old version, with all-out action appearing to be the order of the day.
The Mummy stars Tom Cruise as the main protagonist of the piece, with Russell Crowe as Dr. Henry Jekyll (yes, and Mr. Hyde), and Sofia Boutella as the titular Mummy.
Cruise does what he does best, which is be the main focus of attention during awesome set-pieces. But these set-pieces aren’t the heart of the movie.
The Mummy is set to kickstart a new fictional universe which contains The Invisible Man, Van Helsing, and a load of other characters who Universal owns the rights to make movies about.
