Monsters Are Real and Have One Too Many Pupils in New ‘Mummy’ Poster and Teaser
Universal’s The Mummy will soon be upon us, poised to unleash its wrath of ancient magic, curses, and hopefully a lot less bloodthirsty scarabs than the Brendan Fraser version. While you wait for Sunday’s new trailer, please enjoy the new teaser above, as well as a brand-new poster featuring the terrifying Princess Ahmanet.
The stars have been hyping up the creepiness of this movie from the get-go, but I personally haven‘t been that creeped out — that is, until I watched today’s fourteen-second tease. Those scenes in the tomb amongst all those dimly lit statues and idols are enough to make me itchy, and Sofia Boutella’s mummy herself looks pretty darn frightening.
Speaking of, feast your eyes on the brand-new poster, which takes a cue from the best shot of the first trailer, showcasing Ahmanet’s freaky eye(s).
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen 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. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
