Get ready for all The Mummy movie trivia you really need to know!

3. The Mummy is being directed by Alex Kurtzman. Kurtzman also directed the 2012 movie People Like Us. In addition, he is currently the executive producer for 3 television series: Hawaii Five-O, Sleepy Hollow and Scorpion.
4. The Mummy’s movie tagline is- “Welcome to a new world of gods and monsters.” This is also a quote from the 1935 horror movie, Bride of Frankenstein. In that movie, Doctor Pretorius, played by the late Ernest Thesiger, is making a toast to Henry Frankenstein, played by the late Colin Clive, and he says, “To a new world of gods and monsters. The creation of life is enthralling, distinctly enthralling, isn’t it?”
