The first trailer for The Mummy reboot is here and puts a new spin on this familiar story
I really liked The Mummy and The Mummy Returns starring Brendan Frasier and Rachel Weisz. Both of these films put a fresh spin on this story and told the tale in an exciting, new way. Even though nobody really asked for it, a reboot to this story is being made by Universal Pictures and is set to come out next year. The first trailer for this reboot is now online. Here are my thoughts on this new trailer.
You can read the plot for The Mummy here:
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the desert, an ancient queen whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in the modern era, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
Even though this is a pretty good trailer, I have issues with this film. There is no reason in my mind for making a reboot to this movie. It has been told so many times already that I don’t see any reason to try and tell it again. I will admit this is an interesting concept though. The cast are a good choice and the special effects look wonderful. If you want to learn more about this reboot head over to this website.
