Here’s an interview from the Australian TV with Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella to promote The Mummy.
Last Friday, Tom was at the Graham Norton Show for an interview to promote The Mummy, along with Annabelle Wallis, Zac Efron and Beth Ditto. Here’s the full show:
Tom Cruise talks about Tom Hanks and how he was set to star in Jerry Maguire:
Some good news about Top Gun sequel!
Much talked about for years, but seemingly never that close to happening, it appears the momentum is finally, properly building for the sequel to Top Gun. Out promoting The Mummy, Tom Cruise dropped word that the film has a title… Top Gun: Maverick.
As he explains in the above video from Access Hollywood, Cruise wanted to avoid the number convention, much as the more recent Mission Impossible sequels have. While we’re not sure the film necessarily needs to hint it’ll focus partly on Cruise’s character (we could have predicted that), it’s interesting to note that despite all the talk of drones, it’ll have the same tone and style as the original, with Harold Faltermeyer on score duty and a plot full of competition between pilots – there will be aircraft carriers and jets. Watch Cruise sidestep the question of drones altogether, like a cocky pilot buzzing the tower when he’s warned not to…
Joseph Kosinski is the star’s choice to direct, and there may well be a return engagement for Val Kilmer as Iceman (though Cruise doesn’t mention any co-stars, probably because deals have to be done).
Shooting should kick off next year, so it seems we’ll be feeling the need for speed by 2019.
An international trailer for The Mummy has been released and it shows more of it’s backstory:
The Mummy is set to be in theaters on June 9th.
The second Trailer for The Mummy has been released today by Universal, watch it below:
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.
Cruise is joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson) and Oscar® winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
The creative team on this action-adventure event is led by director/producer Alex Kurtzman and producer Chris Morgan, who have been instrumental in growing some of the most successful franchises of the past several years—with Kurtzman writing or producing entries in the Transformers, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible series, and Morgan being the narrative engineer of the Fast & Furious saga as it has experienced explosive growth from its third chapter on. Sean Daniel, who produced the most recent Mummy trilogy, produces alongside Kurtzman and Morgan.
The Mummy will be in theaters on June 9th.
