As discussed and presented on a couple of trailer posts already, there is a brand new Mummy film to enjoy and it is opening today at theaters across the country. This ancient evil will go head to head against Tom Cruise and be the first film in a series of connected films by Universal Pictures under the branding of “Dark Universe”. I’ve posted the theatrical poster below with some reminder of premise and cast.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I enjoyed the trailers for the film but am not sure that I am going to catch this one right away despite my saying that I was considering it. It looks good but so do a lot of films and you end up leaving disappointed and I’ve only just seen “Wonder Woman” and still need to write about that and the two conventions along with the rest of it. Whew. So you might have seen me refer to this as a “Dark Universe” film and that is because the company just announced this as the official title a couple of weeks ago. They also announced that three more monsters will be joining this universe with The Hunchback, Phantom Of The Opera and Dracula. Interesting to see those joining the ranks and let’s cross our fingers that they can make this whole thing pan out. What do you readers think of this one? Are you catching it at some point today or giving it a little bit of a wait? Let me know in the comments section below.
