The first few seconds from the Mummy Trailer reminded me of the Mission Impossible movies! Between Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) and his partner levitating inside the plane to the spectacular crash of the craft! It’s almost a Déjà vu scene but with a supernatural twist: human being (or something else) with strange eyes! (See those double pupils in the picture above)! The rest of the movie trailer is a combination of action (Mission Impossible style), horror and supernatural powers! While the first part of the trailer did not impress me much, I was drawn to the second part where we see the crew in the morgue and the main character (Tom Cruise) waking up, followed by a series of spectacular scenes !
Watch the Mummy Trailer below and see for yourself!
