    The Mummy (film) - Tom Cruise

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Here's the trailer

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjHgzkQM2Sg

    What's the point of remaking the Mummy if you're just gonna make it into another Mission Impossible film? Hands up anyone who'se intrigued by this trailer. Anything here you haven't seen before?

They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    You know... I thought it felt like "Missions Impossible"...

    Anway, Cruise generally makes quite watchable films, so might be nice to see him in a supernatural apocalypse time affair...

    That looks awful.

    I wish Russell Crowe would stop trying to do posh accents.

    I'm going to watch the Hammer film now, just out of spite.

    Definitely feels like Mummy: Impossible....

    In case any of you haven't heard, this film is Universal's start to an attempted shared-universe. Like Marvel, only with their classic monsters. Sigh. Anyway, Crowe is likely another classic character. They got these big name actors involved, because of their pay or the quality of the material? I'm leaning toward pay.

    Hopefully I'm wrong.

    Shared universe? Good luck.
