Tom Cruise stars in this big budget pic, with the classic Universal Monsters character returning for the first installment in a planned shared monster universe (co-star Russell Crowe doing his own bit to revive a famous frightening figure). Written by Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange, Passengers), there’s no connective tissue shared with Stephen Sommers’ Brendan Fraser-starring pics of the same name.
Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella) awakens in the present day. After her destiny was unjustly taken from her in ancient Egypt, she brings with her a malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
