The Mummy Seriously Cannot Seem To Kill Tom Cruise In Crazy First Trailer

Mummy Seriously Cannot Seem Kill Tom Cruise Crazy First Trailer

Tom Cruise has scaled 100-foot buildings, climbed dangerous rock-faces, dangled from moving airplanes during takeoff, plunged 120 feet into nothingness , and held his breath underwater for more than six minutes — all in the name of his art. But in The Mummy , Cruise does some of his most death-defying stuntwork yet.

No. Seriously. No matter how hard this film tries to kill Cruise with plane crashes, explosions, bus crashes, and a crazy-ass ancient mummy princess out for vengeance, Cruise just will not die. In fact, even when he does seemingly plummet to his death in the first full-length trailer for The Mummy , he magically springs back to life in a morgue.

You just cannot kill Tom Cruise.

The film is a reboot of the popular Mummy franchise . The original horror film was released in 1932, but The Mummy probably makes people think of the 1999 redux starring Brendan Fraser. However, Universal Pictures is now launching a shared universe of scary monster flicks — and Cruise's Mummy is kicking things off. The trailer even makes a promise to its modern audience: 'Welcome to a new world of gods — and monsters.'
