Universal Pictures has released the first poster and teaser trailer for their upcoming reboot of The Mummy, which is the first film in their slate of new movies based on their classic monster series. The brief amount of footage they’ve released in the teaser is interesting. It definitely doesn’t have the magic and eeriness that the original movie had. This version has more of an action-adventure kind of feel to it. This could end up being a fun movie, but we’ll just have to wait and see more footage…. we do miss Brendan though…
