Why the 'Mummy' reboot won't be as terrifying as Russell Crowe claims

9 May 2016 6:14 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

During a recent roundtable interview to promote his new buddy drama The Nice Guys co-starring Ryan Gosling, Russell Crowe confirmed that he would be playing Dr. Jekyll in director Alex Kurtzman's upcoming reboot of The Mummy, and furthermore claimed that the big-budget film is -- contrary to perceptions in the industry -- "designed to scare the shit out of you." Sounds great! So why don't I believe it? Anyone who has been paying attention over the last couple of years knows that Universal is planning a Marvel Cinematic Universe-style crossover film series centering on the studio's classic monsters (Dracula, The Mummy, The Invisible Man and the Bride of Frankenstein, et al.), with The Mummy set to be first out of the gate next summer. As Drew and I agreed on last week's episode of my weekly horror chat series Nightmare Fuel (embedded above and below), this approach is troubling, »

Russell Crowe Confirms He Is Dr. Jekyll in Mummy Reboot

9 May 2016 1:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe was in early talks to play a "Jekyll-like role in Universal Pictures' The Mummy reboot. No details were given for this character, but we know that the story is set in modern day, and it will be the first full adventure in the studio's massive monster reboot franchise, set to hit theaters on July 9, 2017. While doing press for his new movie The Nice Guys, Russell Crowe confirmed that he is actually playing Dr. Jekyll.

Production started last month on Universal Pictures' Mummy reboot, with Tom Cruise is reportedly playing a special forces soldier who teams with an archaeologist (Annabelle Wallis), although those character details have yet to be confirmed. Sofia Boutella, who had a breakthrough role in last year's Kingsman: The Secret Service, is playing the Mummy, marking the first time in franchise history that a female has played the title character. »

Crowe: "Mummy" Reboot Is "Seriously Scary"

7 May 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

This week came word that Russell Crowe is in talks to join the reboot of the currently shooting "The Mummy" franchise at Universal Pictures.

The Alex Kurtzman-directed film has been in production in the UK for a few weeks now with Tom Cruise in the lead role, and is the first in a proposed series of films sharing the same cinematic universe and featuring various classic monsters. Crowe is slated to play one such legendary monster - Dr. Henry Jekyll.

Speaking about the film whilst out promoting "The Nice Guys," Crowe says the new film is not the action-adventure style tone of the Brendan Fraser films, but rather a full on horror tale:

"This one is kind of more designed to seriously scare the s--- out of you. It's very interesting, what they're gonna do with that stuff. I've had a couple of chats about it with the director. »

Russell Crowe: ‘The Mummy’ Is ‘Designed to Seriously Scare the S— Out of You’

7 May 2016 12:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Unlike Brendan Fraser’s trilogy, Universal’s “The Mummy” reboot is better categorized as a horror pic than an action-adventure, according to Russell Crowe.

Crowe confirmed that he’s joined Tom Cruise in the upcoming remake.

“I’m gonna do it,” Crowe said about the film at a press junket at the Beverly Hilton promoting his action comedy “The Nice Guys,” according to Collider.

Crowe portrays Dr. Henry Jekyll, a Royal Society fellow, opposite Cruise, who plays a Navy Seal hunting terrorists. “New Girl” star Jake Johnson and “The People v. O.J. Simpson’sCourtney B. Vance also recently boarded the movie.

When asked how the remake differs from Fraser’s films, Crowe said, “This one is kind of more designed to seriously scare the s— out of you.”

The Aussie actor added that he’s already been bouncing off ideas for the film with director Alex Kurtzman (“there were »

Tom Cruise's The Mummy Gets an Official Synopsis

6 May 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Dracula Untold is the official first movie in Universal's Monsters Universe, The Mummy is fully opening up this world that will include a number of iconic crossovers with some of the studio's most infamous ghouls. The remake is set to hit theaters in 2017. It stars Tom Cruise in the lead role, with Sofia Boutella playing the title monster, the first time in series history that this mummified zombie has ever been played by a woman. Universal Pictures has released the official synopsis, which gives us an idea of what we can expect.

"Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (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.

Universal Monsters: The Next Big Cinematic Franchise?

5 May 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on whether the Universal Monsters will deliver the next big cinematic franchise…

You all remember The Mummy, right? Brendan Fraser doing his best Harrison Ford impression while Arnold Vosloo pranced around in a gold nappy trying to hide his broad South African brogue. Rather good, wasn’t it? You may be surprised to learn it came out in 1999. Some readers of this may not have been born then! The Mummy Returns followed in 2001 and then The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor in 2008 (but we don’t talk about that), with a Dwayne Johnson-starring The Scorpion King spin-off wedged in between. Had these films all came out a decade later, chances are they would have been much more of a cinematic universe, which of course are hot stuff these days thanks to Marvel’s successes in the superhero genre. Universal Pictures got into the act last year »

Third Universal Monster Movie Dated For 2019

4 May 2016 9:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All eyes in Universal‘s Monster Universe – both human and otherwise – may currently be trained on the Tom Cruise-fronted reboot of The Mummy, itself due to arrive in 2017, but the studio recently nailed down release plans for the third creature feature in its shared universe for 2019.

Exactly who or what said feature will revolve around is still up for question, but we know now that it’ll scurry into theaters in time for February 15, 2019. Pumping out one film per year, that places the as-yet-untitled genre flick behind both The Mummy – slated for June 9, 2017 – and the second of Universal’s reworked horror icons, which was recently pegged to arrive on April 13, 2018.

Currently, it’s understood the studio’s Monster Universe will soon house solo movies for such heinous creations as Dracula, Van Helsing, Bride of Frankenstein, the Wolfman and the Invisible Man, but aside from Alex Kurtzman’s overhaul of The Mummy, »

Universal Dates Third Monster Movie for 2019

3 May 2016 4:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following through on its promise to launch a monster movie universe, Universal has set a Feb. 15, 2019, release date for its third monster film.

The studio tapped Alex Kurtzman (“Transformers”) and Chris Morgan (“Furious 7”) in November to revive its monster franchises such as the Mummy — which began shooting in April in the U.K. with Tom Cruise starring — along with other pictures centered on Dracula, Van Helsing, Bride of Frankenstein, the Wolfman and the Invisible Man. The idea is to re-imagine the classic monster films for a modern audience and release them at a rate of one per year.

The Mummy” has been dated for June 9. Kurtzman is directing and producing alongside Morgan as well as Sean Daniel. The film also stars Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Marwan Kenzari and Courtney B. Vance.

Earlier this year, Universal selected April 13, 2018, for its second monster movie but it has not yet provided details of that title. »

First Look at Tom Cruise on 'The Mummy' Reboot Set

6 April 2016 8:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures is finally getting their shared Monsters Universe off the ground, as production begins on the Untitled Mummy Reboot. While the title creature is nowhere to be found, the first set photos have leaked. Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis are currently shooting in Oxford, England. We don't know what's going on in these first images, but it appears that the actor and his leading lady have had a particularly tough night.

This is our first unofficial look at the movie's two heroes in what is being called a contemporary adventure. Sofia Boutella is also starring in the movie, playing the lead villain. This will be the first time a female has ever played the role of The Mummy in Universal's long and storied franchise. The story takes place in modern day.

Tom Cruise stars as a former special forces officer. Annabelle Wallis is said to be playing a scientist, »

Tom Cruise And Annabelle Wallis Star In First Set Photos For Universal’s The Mummy Reboot

6 April 2016 6:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Filming is currently underway on the London set of Universal’s The Mummy reboot, and we now have our first look at Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis in action.

Staging a nighttime shoot on the cobble streets of Oxford, England, our best guess is that Cruise and Wallis’ characters are on the hunt for some form of Egyptian relic or ancient clue, possibly sending them off to the sun-kissed plains of Egypt. Rooted in a modern-day setting, we do know that Cruise will be headlining the studio’s overhaul as a former special forces soldier, though how exactly that ties into the plot is still up for question.

Joining that crusade is Jurassic World and New Girl star Jake Johnson, who was summoned to the cast a month ago as a fellow soldier to Cruise’s hero, whereas Kingsman: The Secret Service breakout Sofia Boutella will »

Marvel’s Most Wanted Adds Oded Fehr & Fernanda Andrade; First Logo Revealed

23 March 2016 7:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The events of last night’s episode of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. certainly seemed to be setting up the Marvel’s Most Wanted spinoff show, as Agents Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) were forced to split away from their friends and teammates in an emotional farewell scene.

Now, Spoiler TV seems to have come across the first official logo for the show as well as news on a couple of new casting additions.

According to the report, both Oded Fehr (The Mummy) and Fernanda Andrade (The Devil Inside) have signed on to star in mysterious roles. No other details are provided, but there’s a pretty good chance at least one of them will be playing a villain, since we already have Morse, Hunter and Delroy Lindo’s Dominic Fortune on the side of the angels.

14 March 2016 2:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marwan Kenzari has joined the cast of Universal’s “The Mummy” reboot starring Tom Cruise.

Annabelle Wallis and Sofia Boutella also star. The film is set to bow on June 9, 2017.

The studio tapped Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan last summer to help develop a monster universe for Universal with rebooted versions of the studio’s classic monster movies. Kurtzman is also on board to direct, and will produce alongside Morgan and Sean Daniel.

Jon Spaihts is penning the script. Plot details are vague other than the fact that the pic will be set in the present day, unlike the previous three installments starring Brendan Fraser.

Universal executive VP of production Jon Mone and VP of development Jay Polidoro will oversee the project for the studio.

Kenzari also has key roles in Terry George’s “The Promise” alongside Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac and MGM’s “Ben-Hur” retelling, which stars Jack Huston. »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, New Girl star Jake Johnson is the latest actor to join Tom Cruise (Edge of Tomorrow) and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service) in the upcoming reboot of The Mummy and Universal’s larger cinematic monster universe.

In addition to Johnson’s casting, it has also been announced that Annabelle and Peaky Blinders actress Annabelle Wallis is in talks to come on board the film as the female lead.
