Home Video Release Date and Special Features Revealed for ‘The Mummy’

I don’t care what anyone says. I loved Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy. It was fun, funny, and a bit spooky – kind of like, you know, the classic Universal Monster flicks. If you’re like me, you’ll be excited to know that the movie will be hitting home video very soon!

The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, will be released digitally on August 22nd, 2017. It will be hitting 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD on September 12th, 2017. The special features are as follows:

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you’ll get your chance when it hits home video. Many are hesitant to watch it in theaters; I get it. When expectations for a movie are low but the ticket price is 10-12 dollars, it can be a gamble. But let me tell you this: it’s absolutely worth the price of a rental.

Personally, I’m excited to be able to own the movie so soon. It was a lot of fun and demands some rewatches. It probably won’t change your life, but it’ll give you some much-needed escapism and fun.
