See Tom Cruise pull off a stunt in this new ‘The Mummy’ featurette (VIDEO)


LOS ANGELES, March 19 — Universal is teasing us with more footage from Tom Cruise’s upcoming action-packed ‘The Mummy’ with this new featurette.

The clip reveals behind-the-scenes footage in which Cruise and Annabelle Wallis defy gravity for one of the key scenes featured in movie.

The official synopsis of the film reads: “Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilisation: The Mummy. Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.”

The film also stars Russell Crowe, Courtney B. Vance and Jake Johnson. Alex Kurtzman is directing.

The Mummy is set for release on June 9.
