Jede Menge Trailer, unter anderem mit der toll-spaßig aussehenden, von James „Guardians of the Galaxy“ Gunn geschriebenen The Belko Experiment, einem neuen wunderbar creepigen Trailer zu The Autopsy of Jane Doe und zu… The Mummy. Ein paar Worte dazu:
The Mummy ist Universals zweiter Versuch (nach dem furchtbar ätzenden und jetzt ent-kanonisierten Dracula Untold), ihr Universal Monster-Cinematic Universe an den Start zu bringen. Und was machen sie? Genau die gleiche Kacke, wie bei Dracula Untold. Warum hat ’ne Mumie Augen, die an Spinnen erinnern? Und wieviel hat man Tom Cruise bezahlt, damit er wiedermal vor Sachen wegrennt? Warum kann ich mich eine Minute nach dem Trailer an so gut wie nichts mehr daraus erinnern? UND WAS IST SO SCHWER DARAN, EINEN KLASSISCHEN HORRORFILM MIT EINER LATSCHENDEN MUMIE ZU DREHEN? Ich mein, klar, das Adventure-Ding von Stephen Sommers wollen sie jetzt nicht nochmal drehen, da soll schon ein wenig mehr Horror passieren im Sinne ihres Cinematic Universes und so. Aber das überzeugt mich so rein gar nicht. Sollen sie sich ihr Shared Monster-Universum irgendwo hinschieben, ich bleib bei den Originalen aus den 30ern. Seufz.
Außerdem: Nette Superhelden-Variation in Sleight, ein japanischer Trailer zu Beauty and the Beast, ein nettes Featurette zu den Creatures aus Rogue One und eins zum Coming-Of-Age-Drama Moonlight, ein Retro-Commercial zum 80s-aber-heute-Horrorschlock Beyond The Gates (Trailer hier, FFF-Review da) und ein scheußlicher erster Teaser zum Woody Woodpecker-Film.
It at first seems to be an ordinary morning on the job for a group of Americans working for a not-for-profit in a modern office building in Colombia. After noticing that their Colombian colleagues have not arrived for work, office worker Mike (John Gallagher, Jr.) spots some unfamiliar security guards entering a large hangar nearby. Moments later, an icy voice comes over the building’s PA system and calmly explains that the employees must kill a certain number of their co-workers — if not, they will be killed themselves. While the boss (Tony Goldwyn) tries to calm the troops, Mike belatedly realizes that something truly sinister is going on — and when metal doors come sliding down on all the building’s exits and windows, it becomes clear that friends and colleagues are now suddenly enemies in a bloody and brutal battle to the death.
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 queen (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) and 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.
