The Mummy Movie Synopsis & Plot
Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: "The Mummy."
Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of "Kingsman: The Secret Service" and "Star Trek Beyond") 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 Plot: While liberating an ancient Iraqi burial sight from a violent gaggle of terrorist insurgents, an antiquities thief (Tom Cruise) and his sidekick (Jake Johnson) unearth the ancient underground prison of a vicious Egyptian sorceress (Sofia Boutella). Once the sarcophagus is uprooted from the magic binding it, a diabolical evil is unleashed. The men responsible for releasing it are soon cursed to walk the world of the living and the dead being hunted by this... mummy.
