The Mummy is the first in an upcoming series of classic monster movie reboots from Universal Pictures.
Crowe appears as famous literary character Dr Jekyll in the film. Reports have claimed that Eddie Redmayne, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy were initially considered for the role.
Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek producer) is directing from a script by Prometheus and Pacific Rim screenwriter Jon Spaihts. Filming took place in London and Namibia during 2016.
An official synopsis for the film reads: “Though safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess 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.”
