Tom Cruise’s new film, The Mummy, is essentially a monster movie Iron Man; it’s the first film in Universal’s new cinematic universe of monsters, which will include Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, and other horrors from the studio’s rich, historic past. Here’s the breakdown of everything The Mummy can tell us about…
The Mummy is the first movie in the “Dark Universe,” a planned series of films that will intertwine the ghoulish tales of the classic Universal Monsters. But it contains zero scares and is devoid of any sense of fun. What it does have is whole lot of Tom Cruise, and a Mummy whose motivation feels very, very…
Universal’s hoping that its reboot of the Mummy franchise will be just the kind of hit that’ll sell the world on its shared universe of gods and monsters. The latest trailer for the movie shows just how different this take on the Mummy story will be.
Though The Mummy stars Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella, one of the most intriguing characters is played by Russell Crowe. The Oscar winner is Dr. Jekyll, a key figure in the new Universal Monsters film universe, and this new video reveals his dark side.
Edge of Tomorrow is one of those movies where if you haven’t seen it, someone who has will list off at least a dozen reasons why you should. Fans of the scifi thriller have been clamoring for a sequel since 2014, along with star Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman. While things are still up in the air, the movie’s…
A nausea-inducing behind-the-scenes featurette shows how Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, and the crew defied gravity to bring a key scene from The Mummy to life. No Book of the Dead required.
Tom Cruise is freeeeeeeeeee, free fallin’!
“Welcome to a new world of Gods and Monsters.” That’s the tagline for The Mummy, the 2017 Tom Cruise movie which just released its first trailer, and the statement is true in more ways than one. If all goes according to plan, The Mummy will be the first film in a new shared cinematic world filled with Universal…
Despite what it may look like at the start, this is not a trailer for Mission: Impossible 6. Sure, there’s Tom Cruise, on a plane, in the middle of a huge action scene. But once the ancient evil lady starts walking around, it’s obvious this is something quite different. This is The Mummy.
Universal’s latest reboot of its classic monsters involves Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe, and Russell Crowe’s hilarious haircut facing a vengeful mummy, played by Sofia Boutella (Star Trek: Beyond.)
“I’m sorry, John, but you’re going to have to run again.”
As you read this, Universal is hard at work creating their own, Marvel-style shared universe. It won’t be filled with superheroes, though—it’ll be filled with monsters. Three linked Universal Monsters movies are currently on the schedule and now, one of them may star Oscar-winner Russell Crowe.
Everyone involved in the first Edge of Tomorrow has been talking about a sequel for a while; they’de love to do it, it depends on timing, we have an idea, all that kind of stuff. Well now, for the first time, a significant step toward actually making the thing has been taken.
Early buzz from AMC’s Preacher adaptation, which premiered at SXSW, has been overwhelmingly positive. But one little tidbit of information that got out amidst the hype was news of one of the most ludicrous cameo appearances we’ve heard about in a while.
Tops among Ridley Scott’s best-loved movies are early entries Alien and Blade Runner. His varied career has also included Thelma and Louise, Gladiator, The Martian, and that movie where Russell Crowe weathers his midlife crisis making wine in Provence. But 1985’s Legend is surely his absolutely weirdest effort.
Tom Cruise is about to go full Brendan Fraser. According to Variety, the iconic actor is in talks to star in the brand new Universal reboot of The Mummy, which sets up a new connected Monsters universe.
I really appreciate a good mashup. Hell’s Club puts together dozens of famous characters into one club, and it’s spectacular.
Edge of Tomorrow was an underappreciated action-movie classic, and we’re dying for the planned sequel. But for now, director Doug Liman and star Tom Cruise are working on something else: The pair could team up for a moon-based adventure called Luna Park.
The original Edge of Tomorrow is wonderful. A funny, exciting and inventive story from beginning to end. Its biggest problem is that no one really saw it. Financially, it was a disappointment, but the film’s writer thinks he has some ideas on how to change that.
