Universal has shared one final trailer for The Mummy, this time really going all-in on the fact that Tom Cruise is going to be the centerpiece of their monsters universe. We’ve been telling you for months that Cruise is being set up as the central “Van Helsing” character in the universe, with us learning that the Mummy (Sofia Boutella) infects him with an evil that causes him to have powers and internal turmoil. The trailer gives this away, explaining how Cruise survives the plane crash – he’s been cursed by the Mummy. Doctor Jekyll (Russell Crowe) then explains that “It takes a monster, to defeat a monster,” while showing a battle that’s presumably from the film’s finale. Oh, and there’s a pretty cool zombie attack sequence to top it all off.
