The dreaded day is here. There’s momentum building on the long-rumored Creature From the Black Lagoon remake, the one Universal Horror title we hoped against hope would slink unbothered along the muddy bottom of the studio’s shiny new shared universe starring its classic monsters.
“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.

Last month, Universal confirmed that it had cast Tom Cruise in 2017's The Mummy. And the studio’s monster madness continues with similarly massive star power, with the news that Johnny Depp has signed on to play the title role in The Invisible Man.
Looks like those recent rumors about Universal looking to gender-swap some of the stars of their Universal Monsters reboots might have been true! New reports suggest that rising Kingsman: The Secret Service star Sofia Boutella has signed on to terrorize the world as the iconic monster.
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.
Coming off a monster year at the box office, Universal Studios is hard at work developing their own monsters. Specifically, a huge universe based on Universal Monsters, which will start with The Mummy and expand from there.
Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, The Invisible Man, Creature From the Black Lagoon, Mummy and Bride of Frankenstein. Individually, they’re some of the most recognizable, celebrated character of all time. Together, they’re known as the Universal Monsters.

We're living in the age of the Shared Universe - more and more studios want a snifter of Marvel's money, and we're due for even more Cinematic Universes in our moviegoing future.
