AceShowbiz - Universal Pictures has released a new featurette for "The Mummy" to show what the movie would be like with Tom Cruise on board. The actor, who is known for his performances in high-octane action movies, once again takes on the challenge and performs dangerous stunts in the upcoming reboot.
The video shows Cruise running away from fake explosions, jumping into a moving bus, getting thrown in the air while fighting the titular mummy, and fighting against Russell Crowe among other things.
The actor says he wanted the movie to be "wild and violent and erratic and spontaneous," while director Alex Kurtzman gushes that getting Cruise to star was a "game changer." His co-stars Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson and Courtney B. Vance talk about how the actor spread his energy and bravery to other actors on the set.
Sofia Boutella plays the ancient queen whose destiny was unjustly taken from her. She is awakened in the present day after years of safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert. It brings with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
Russell Crowe plays the infamous Dr. Henry Jekyll. "The Mummy" reboot is due June 9 in the United States.
