Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for its new version of The Mummy, this one starring Tom Cruise and designed as the second part of its revitalized “Universal Monsters” universe, and I have to say it looks much too much like yet another Mission: Impossible flick.
In it, we see Tom and Annabelle Wallis thrown around the interior of a crashing plane. The sequence seems to go on forever in this trailer, so it’s bound to be a major set piece in the movie, taking up tons of screen time. And we already know how it ends: with Tom’s character dying. Bravo. So that will be a huge waste of the movie’s running time.
