Word has it that Universal Studios is still trying to put together their shared monster universe. The Mummy is the either the next or first part of the universe, depending on whether or not anybody still cares about Dracula Reborn. Do you remember Dracula Reborn? Then that probably answers that question.
Anyway, the new Mummy will star Tom Cruise, so maybe it has some chops.
Can’t say as how I’m too impressed or interested based on that trailer. Looks fine, I suppose, and Tom Cruise usually doesn’t get wrapped up in crappy movies. So hey, maybe it will be good. In general, I’m totally in favor of a big shared monster universe. If they can make awesome versions of Frankenstein and the Wolfman and Dracula and have them all fight or join forces, that sounds neat.
