Following on from this week’s featurette which gave us our first look at Russell Crowe’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde transformation [watch it here], Universal has now unwrapped another new trailer for the upcoming Tom Cruise-headlined reboot The Mummy ahead of its release next month. Take a look here…
Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters. »

The epic year-long production of Avengers: Infinity War is still on-going with an incredible cast of characters and actors. And although we’ve not seen anything from the movie yet outside of a few set photos, composer Alan Silvestri has and has been talking about what he was shown. In an interview with MTV he simply said, “It’s everything we could have hoped for.” Interesting, very interesting. Read more here.

The Mark Gordon Company had no comment on Crowe’s negotiations.
Based on Kevin Boyle’s book “Arc of Justice: A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age,” the true story centers on a racial incident in 1925 Detroit that put African American doctor Ossian Sweet (Oyelowo) on the stand for murder. His defense was funded by the nascent National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and led by Darrow (Crowe).

In a few months, we will be getting a reboot of the Universal monster franchise, The Mummy. This film will kick off a shared universe of monsters that contain such iconic characters as the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the creature from the Black Lagoon, and of course, Dracula.
We’ve only seen a teaser and a trailer for one film thus far, but Universal is still starting to put all the other pieces in place in case of success. We already know they’re starting work on other films like The Wolf Man and Van Helsing, but it sounds like they’re already taking some pretty big steps for another film of theirs, Bride of Frankenstein.

His history of underperforming at the box office makes predicting a post-Marvel career tricky.
If the image of a bearded, flannel-clad Chris Evans playing a single uncle isn’t enough to lure throngs of women to the movies, I don’t know what will. In his latest film, Gifted, Evans plays Frank Adler, the aforementioned single uncle to a spunky six year-old gifted child, Mary (Mckenna Grace). Frank is caring for his niece after the unexpected death of his sister and he yearns for the child to have a normal and healthy life.

Mary is offered a chance to attend a prestigious school for gifted children, which Frank promptly declines. This kicks off a custody battle between Frank and his estranged mother, Evelyn »

Ricki Lake is trying to let go.
More than a week after her ex-husband, jewelry designer Christian Evans, committed suicide at age 45 amid his battle with bipolar disorder, Lake was still “in disbelief,” she tells People in this week’s issue. “I have some bouts of peace, but it’s hard to swallow that this was supposed to happen,” she says.
When the actress and former talk show host, 48, began dating Evans in September 2010, he was upfront about being diagnosed with the illness earlier in his life but did not like taking medication. “He would self-medicate,” Lake says. “He had »
