A new featurette for The Mummy has been released which hints at the greater Monsterverse as it features a first look at Russell Crowe’s Dr. Jekyll transformation as well as seemingly teases Dracula as a skull of a vampire can be seen, which may be a nod to Luke Evan's Dracula Untold.

The Mummy has a June 9, 2017 release directed by Alex Kurtzman starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe.

Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy.

Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
