The Mummy (2017) - now with Scientology!

I don't mind a Mummy remake (technically this is a re-remake since it's remaking the original 1932 Mummy movie) but I'm tired of seeing Tom Cruise popping up everywhere playing the same generic action hero.

I am excited about hearing that they're redoing all the Universal monster movies and creating a shared universe a la Marvel.

Wasn't 'The Mummy' (Brendan Fraser version) already a pretty good movie?

If they have to remake a monster movie, why not choose something that sucked to start with? Why not redeem 'Dracula' or 'Frankenstein', or maybe take a stab at a not-horrible 'Van Helsing' flick?

Like, there've been okay modern worwilf movies (Benicio Del Toro 'Wolfman' was acceptible, and I can't think I'm the only person liked that Jack Nicholson flick 'Wolf')----------there ain't no reason they can't make a good new movie about draculas and frankensteins. Clearly all that's lacking is the will to not suck ass.

Frankenstein with DeNiro was good. Dracula is poop unless you count the Naked Gun guy's spoof.

In November 2015, Variety reported that Jon Spaihts and Eric Heisserer will write the Van Helsing reboot, and that Cruise had left the film.

Here's a look at what a trailer sounds like before editing is properly finished.

So this movie is horrible. Probably not surprising. But it was somehow even worse than I thought it'd be. Like I thought it'd be DC cinematic universe bad - it's even worse than that. Save yourselves.
