The Mummy is an American feature film of the action and horror genres. It is produced by Universal Pictures and is the first film in their "Dark Universe" line, which is intended as a re-imagining of the company's classic "Universal Monsters" brand. This is the third reboot of the concept since 1932, after Universal released the original The Mummy. British movie house Hammer Film Productions did their own version of The Mummy in 1959 and Universal returned to the concept again in 1999, structuring it as more of an action movie called The Mummy.
The new film was directed by Alex Kurtzman with a screenplay written by David Koepp, Christopher McQuarrie, and Dylan Kussman, based on a story treatment by Kurtzman, Jon Spaihts and Jenny Lumet. The film was released theatrically in the United States on June 9th, 2017. It was released in Real D 3D and IMAX 3D.
The Mummy stars action movie icon Tom Cruise as Nick Morton, with Sofia Boutella filling in as the film's antagonist, Ahmanet. Also starring in this production is Russell Crowe as Henry Jekyll, Annabelle Wallis as Jenny Halsey, Jake Johnson as Chris Vail, and Courtney B. Vance as Colonel Greenway. This is the first mummy movie to feature a central antagonist who is a female.
