The New Trailer For ‘The Mummy’ Wants to Paint it Black

The first trailer for the newly rebooted version of The Mummy was full of Tom Cruise driven stunts and explosions. Now, with the second trailer, we actually get to find out a bit about the headlining villain/monster.

Throughout the trailer the central sitar riff of The Rolling Stones’ “Paint it Black” keeps playing, and while my brain desperately spent the whole time wanting the rest of the song to kick in, it sets the appropriate tone. That said — creepy shots set to creepy music (which likely won’t appear in the film) are not much of an indicator as to whether the film will be any good. But hey, it can’t be worse than Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.

The Mummy comes out June 9, 2017.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
