Some folks who have seen the new Mummy movie have been talking about it. And while I'm not a Tom Cruise hater, I did laugh when one guy said: "You will greatly enjoy seeing Cruise violently thrown off every edge of the screen." This feels like a very different role for Cruise than his usually unstoppable hero (Mission Impossible, Jack Reacher, Knight & Day) and I'm looking forward to seeing what Universal has in mind for the Dark Universe.
The latest and likely last sneak peek for the film includes a brief intro by Cruise talking about growing up with the Universal Monster Movies, as many of us did. Cruise always strikes me as someone who wants to make the best film possible and is willing to be beaten to hell for it.
Catch The Mummy in theaters this Friday, June 9th.
