A mash-up of Mission: Impossible and the forthcoming reboot of The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise has surfaced online.
Entitled ‘If The Mummy Was A Mission: Impossible Movie’, the clip splices together scenes from the forthcoming fantasy film and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. You can watch the clip below.
Earlier this week, the official trailer for The Mummy was unveiled.
The original Mummy film was released in 1999 and followed by The Mummy Returns in 2001. Spin-off The Scorpion King in 2002 saw Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson take the lead role.
The new movie sees Tom Cruise as Nick Morton, supported by a cast that includes Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B Vance and Russell Crowe.
The film is scheduled to be released on June 9, 2017. Watch the first trailer below
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.
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.”
The film was being delayed because Cruise and Paramount Pictures were at loggerheads over the actor’s salary.
The follow-up to last year’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, which grossed over $680 million (£520 million) at cinemas globally, had been due to start shooting in the New Year. Rogue Nation writer-director Christopher McQuarrie is on board to direct again from a self-penned script, with JJ Abrams due to serve as a producer.
