UPDATE: A featurette (which steals some Game Of Thrones music) on the movie and the wider Monsters universe is now online. Check it out lower down the page...

You may already have seen the fragments of footage from the new Mummy movie that emerged online shortly before the weekend. The full trailer for Tom Cruise's latest has risen from the sands and you can watch it below.

As Universal prepares to breath new life into its classic monster movies while combining them into the current hot trend for shared cinematic universes, The Mummy represents one of the big main shots at launching this linked set of stories.

With Cruise as soldier Nick Morton and Sofia Boutella playing the title character, Ahmanet, the stage is set for a sandstorm of new action and chases as the supernatural threat re-emerges. It's just the latest take on a story that has been told many times on screen, though this one will mean another new start, ignoring the more recent Brendan Fraser/Stephen Sommers movies. Cruise has a brush with death – or could it be something more! and Russell Crowe's Dr. Jekyll welcomes him to a world of gods and monsters.

Alex Kurtzman directs from a script that has been work from Jon Spaihts and Christopher McQuarrie, and The Mummy will be out on 9 June, 2017.
