If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m really excited for the newest incarnation of The Mummy. I know it’s been getting a lot of flack – some people don’t seem too enthusiastic about the prospect of Tom Cruise starring in an action-packed version of the film, featuring a very different type of undead Egyptian antagonist – but I’m totally not in the same boat. I think it’s going to be awesome. And yes, part of that has to do with Jake Johnson. I love New Girl. Sue me. It’s funny!
China recently lucked out with an exclusive The Mummy trailer, and it’s AWESOME. I’ve got to admit – it looks a lot more exciting in this one than it does in the one that was created for American audiences. Though it’s missing some awesome scenes, it’s added a bunch of epic new ones. It would appear as if this trailer is going for an uncompromising action film aesthetic, where previous ones have tried to blend the horror with the action. Regardless, I think it’s great to watch both trailers and get a sneak peek of what this film really has to offer us. Plus, this trailer has more Johnson. Just admit it. You like quirky romantic sitcoms. You do! I know you do!

What did you think? Loved it? Hated it? Are you chomping at the bit to get your dusty, dry, corroded hands all over this film? Or do you want nothing to do with this Boris Karloff-less excursion? Let me know in the comments.
The Mummy will wreak havoc upon audiences on June 9th, 2017. Brush up on your hieroglyphics!
