PiercingMetal Thoughts: “Welcome To A New World Of Gods and Monsters” brrrr, that is chilling but one is to expect such a thing when dealing with a walking mummy that is intent on our doom. This time around we get a female protagonist as the monster and it calls to mind the vampire queen Akasha for me. It sure looked interesting from the first trailer. Now the idea of a shared universe of the Universal Monsters is not something completely new as we’ve seen Frankenstein meet the Wolfman in a film that bears the same name and let’s not forget the super classic “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein” that pits our cowardly duo against Frankie, Dracula, The Wolfman and more. As a new premise this appeals to me greatly as I love the idea of tying things together for the sake of a better film going experience. Just look at how well this has worked for the Marvel Studios stuff and eventually will for the DC Extended Universe. As I have already said, the trailer sure looked exciting and loaded with the modern special effects to make this something else on the big screen and an eventual keeper in your video collection. Count me in on this for sure when it comes out. What do you readers think of the trailer and the idea of a Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe. Let me know in the comments section below.

  1. Absolutely no interest. another reimagining /reboot/remake for the billionth time. Wolfman remake for just fine, they should have done the same for Drac, Frank, and Mummy, and finally given some respect to the Creature in the same artistic direction. This Mummy looks too left field from what the original Universal movies created. Yawn.

    1. It’s different for sure Rich but did you look deeper into the link about the “Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe”? This much like “Iron Man” was, is the first film in a series of connected films. I’m game since it could be an interesting ride. Let’s see what happens.
