The Mummy, Universal’s new horror-action hybrid, is both a reboot of a popular franchise, and the start of a whole new series. Directed by Alex Kurtzman, the Tom Cruise-led feature will introduce audiences to the “Dark Universe,” where the studio’s classic monsters — including Frankenstein’s monster (Javier Bardem), the Invisible Man (Johnny Depp), and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Russell Crowe) — will mix and mingle.

First film in planned relaunch of Universal Monsters series looks part old-school monster movie, part 'Mission: Impossible'-style action flick in a new behind-the-scenes clip
The Mummy will be arriving in theaters next year to spook audiences. Starring Tom Cruise, the reboot of the age-old movie villain will also launch a shared universe of classic Universal monster characters like Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Universal dropped the full trailer for the first in its planned monster universe on Sunday night, featuring star Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible-level Ancient Egypt action. In the new movie, after an ancient princess, played by Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond), is awakened from her crypt beneath the desert, she brings malevolence and great terrors that endanger modern-day people. “Please meet Princess Ahmanet,” Russell Crowe tells Cruise in the trailer, as the princess wreaks havoc over London. While there’s plenty of action — including Cruise dying in the first 30 seconds in a plane crash, and then appearing to come back to life — Crowe has previously talked up the horror aspects of the reboot. “This one is kind of more designed to seriously scare the s— out of you,” he said in May.
