There's a scary lady on the loose in the new teaser for "The Mummy."
Universal Pictures shared the 15-second preview Thursday, and it promises "a new world of gods and monsters." The scariest of the lot seems to be the titular mummy (Sofia Boutella), an ancient princess whose terrifying evil has grown since her death millennia ago. Just look at her eyes in the trailer below -- you can't blame Tom Cruise's character for being horrified.The reason the mummy is so worked up is because her destiny was snatched away. She's clearly ready to make someone pay.
Directed by Alex Kurtzman, "The Mummy" will reboot the original franchise, which launched way back in 1932. With all that history, the cast should be feeling the pressure to do the film's predecessors justice. However, they're a talented bunch -- Cruise and Boutella are joined by Annabelle Wallis, Courtney B. Vance, Jake Johnson, and Russell Crowe -- so they seem up to the challenge.
"The Mummy" opens on June 9.
