What the heck, I had no idea they rebooting the Mummy series. Let alone with fricken Tom Cruise in it. Laughing

Filming has started on Universal Pictures‘ The Mummy in Oxford, England


How random is this? I loved the first one and it brings back some nostalgic memories.

They are not rebooting The Mummy of Brendan Fraser. This is a remake of the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe from 80 some years ago.

This is a part of the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe.

Harking back to the days of the Classic Universal Monsters of Frankenstein's Monster, The Mummy, The Wolf Man, Dracula, The Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Invisible Man as well as the Bride of Frankenstein.

It will be a connected universe much like Marvel Superheroes.

Johnny Depp has already signed on to play The Invisible Man.

Bet the mummy watches that one episode of Opera where Cruise goes crazy and decides he wants no part of that weirdness.......end credits.

I would be more excited for more remakes of Mel Brooks classics. First, Young Frankenstein, then Blazing Saddles, Space Balls, History of the World, then Robin Hood.

Have you seen the Universal Monster Classics? In my opinion, they still hold up today.

I'm absolutely looking forward to this movie and each of the movies in the universe. If they go Transformers junk action route, I'll be super bummed. But if they even go Brendan Fraser The Mummy in tone and sense of adventure, I'll be lining up to see each of these ones.

That is a great great summer popcorn flick.

I'm intrigued about an extended monster universe that overlaps though, albeit more than likely they botch it.

Agreed. I enjoyed the 2nd one as well.

Lol, same conversation about The Mummy (Fraser) in the WMAYW thread. It seriously is one of the funnest action/adventure movies ever, second only to the Indiana Jones movies for that kind of sense of adventure ever in my opinion.

But as far as The Duke's worries about them screwing up the connected universe, I have a lot of faith in them getting it right. Dracula Untold gives me pause to get my hopes up too high because it was potentially a launching pad, but it looks like they've decided instead to use The Mummy as a launching pad and to scrap the idea of Dracula Untold being the launching point.

I have a strong feeling that this connected universe is going to pay its dues to the Universal Classics. They can't afford to mess it up. They did the connected universe thing before movies could even fathom such a thought all the way back in the 1930's and 1940's.

We're going to get The Mummy. We're going to get The Invisible Man, Frankenstein's Monster, the Bride of Frankenstein, Van Helsing and Dracula. I wouldn't be surprised if Tom Cruise actually is Van Helsing (because that was the rumor) in The Mummy. The Creature from the Black Lagoon remake has me all kinds of excited.

If the movies take off and are a success, we might get a more supernatural Phantom of the Opera or The Thing that Could Not Die, or It Came from Outer Space (which was basically a ripoff of Who Goes There?, which was the source material for The Thing, which is my favorite movie ever).

There is so much potential here for a whole new emphasis on horror movies and horror creatures and the horror genre in general. It's pretty exciting, and it better not fail.

I don't think I would mind a revisioning of Bram Stoker's Dracula.

So far we have:
The Mummy (2017)
The Invisible Man (?, could be the 2018 movie)
Mystery 2018 movie (could be The Invisible Man with Johnny Depp)
Mystery 2019 movie

I just destroyed myself by thinking that they could add The Thing to this universe. Tom Cruise wanted to make At the Mountains of Madness with Guillermo del Toro, but studios backed out with the 100 million dollar budget of an R-rated movie. The Thing is basically the same thing. The Thing is technically a Universal Monster.

There's no real reason for this to be rebooted already.

Poor Fraiser can't seem to get work anymore. Not liked in Hollywood right now Sad.
