In case you didn’t know, Universal is rebooting The Mummy franchise which will now serve as the first film in their Monsters Cinematic Universe. The universe will consist of the classic monsters like Frankenstein’s Bride, Jekyll and Hide and Dracula
Last week, the studio released the first trailer for the film which was immediately followed up by this featurette. While the director and the cast talks about how much they loved the old schools movies and how much work has gone into making it, we get to treat ourselves with some great behind the scenes footage. One of the best action sequences from that first trailer was when the plane starts falling and flipping everyone and everything inside. Also, you get to see Russell Crowe kicking Tom Cruise‘s ass in it, something we all never seen before.
Check it all out in the featurette below :

The Mummy is coming to haunt you in cinemas on June 9, 2017.
Read the official plot synopsis for the film here :
Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) 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.
The creative team on this action-adventure event is led by director/producer Alex Kurtzman and producer Chris Morgan, who have been instrumental in growing some of the most successful franchises of the past several years—with Kurtzman writing or producing entries in the Transformers, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible series, and Morgan being the narrative engineer of the Fast & Furious saga as it has experienced explosive growth from its third chapter on. Sean Daniel, who produced the most recent Mummy trilogy, produces alongside Kurtzman and Morgan.
