Watch the first trailer for Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible – The Mummy
The first trailer for The Mummy, Universal’s classic monster movie reboot, flew in yesterday. Tom Cruise runs, screams, and crashes through the trailer in true Cruise/Mission: Impossible fashion, and it’s hard not to paint the film in broad action/adventure strokes at first glance. For one, the movie’s director is Alex Kurtzman (of Kurtzman/Orci fame), who has a tendency to deliver enjoyable-but-wanting blockbusters as a writer/producer. Also, you just can’t mistake the how-did-he-survive-that tumbling that Cruise is famous for, and it’s on full display in the first trailer for The Mummy. I’m not sold quite yet, but we’ve definitely come a long way since the Brendan Fraser-led slapstick adventure of the late ’90s.
Whether you’re curious about the movie or simply won’t miss a new Cruise blockbuster, watch the first full-length trailer for The Mummy after the jump.
