Following Universal’s presentation at Cinema Con this week, a new poster for the upcoming “The Mummy” reboot has been released. The new poster, which you can see below, is a close-up of Princess Ahmanet, played by the talented Sofia Boutella.
With Universal officially releasing a new poster for the film, it’s safe to assume a new trailer for the flick is right around the corner, especially with a summer release date on the horizon.
The forthcoming reboot will be a much darker take on the Mummy, with the feature also set to launch Universal’s planned “MonsterVerse,” intended to be a monster cinematic universe a la Marvel Studios’ Marvel Cinematic Universe. Films set to follow “The Mummy” include the Invisible Man, the Wolf Man, Van Helsing, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Bride of Frankenstein, with Johnny Depp reportedly set to star in “The Invisible Man.”
Directed by Alex Kurtzman and from a script by John Spaihts, the action-adventure horror film stars Sofia Boutella (“Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “Star Trek Beyond”), Jake Johnson (“Jurassic World”), Annabelle Wallis (“Annabelle”), Courtney B. Vance (“American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson”) and Russell Crowe (“Gladiator,” “Man of Steel”) as Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde.
“The Mummy” opens June 9, 2017.
