And they are confident enough in their monsters filled universe that they have announced that the series of films reviving the studio’s classic characters for a new generation will be known as their “Dark Universe.” More on the story below.

But for Universal’s reboot of The Mummy, it’s a little bit different. That’s because it’s a part of a dark universe of monsters.

In the film’s final action-packed trailer we see Tom Cruise being attacked by ancient monsters and hurled out of vehicles. All the while, audiences will “Witness The Beginning of a Dark Universe.” Check out the final trailer below.

The Mummy reboot Tom Cruise Annabelle Wallis

Now that Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Alex Kurtzman‘s The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, it’s time to answer some of those lingering questions we may have about the film. No, not about the shared Monsters universe that the studio is creating, but on how they shot that gravity-defying scene that sees Cruise and co-star Annabelle Wallis twisting and turning in a plane.

As it turns out, this wasn’t CGI or done on a soundstage. This was real and shot in an aircraft, appropriately called The Vomit Comet. Watch the featurette here below.

Universal's The Mummy

The popularity of a shared universe is undeniable. Disney has their Marvel Cinematic Universe, while Warner Bros. has the DC Extended Universe. Both studios use comic book source materials to expand and grow their superhero franchises. This doesn’t leave much for other studios. But in the case for Universal, they have their classic monster movies at their disposal. So, in order to keep up with the competition, they are launching a shared Monsters universe, and it will all kick off with Alex Kurtzman‘s The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Star Trek Beyond)

The film’s first trailer dropped during Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead. Check it out here below.

Deadpool 2 Domino

Given how Deadpool was a huge success, it comes as no surprise that Fox is moving ahead with Deadpool 2. Those who stuck around for the after-credits sequence were given a small treat when the title character told the audience that Cable would be in the sequel. While details on who could play Cable are still sketchy, there is a new report saying who director Tim Miller has his eyes on to play the role of Domino.

According to this new report, Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane), Sienna Miller (High Rise), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond), Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), and Sylvia Hoeks (Blade Runner 2049) are all on the shortlist to play Domino.

Movie Review: Star Trek Beyond: A Sequel That Truly Soars
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Star Trek Beyond header image

Star Trek Beyond
Director: Justin Lin
Screenwriters: Simon Pegg and Doug Jung
Cast: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba, and Sofia Boutella
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 120 minutes
Release Date: July 22, 2016

It’s been three years since we last left Captain James Tiberius Kirk and his young, hip, sexy rebooted USS Enterprise crew sifting through the charred rubble of the embarrassingly-flawed and intelligence-insulting Star Trek Into Darkness. When the first J.J.

Into Darkness pretty much undid every detectable trace of that progress in the span of a mere two hours.
