“The Mummy 2”: understand why the film with Tom Cruise did not have a sequel

The reboot of ‘The Mummy’ was supposed to kick off a new shared universe, but after failing among critics and disappointing at the box office, the entire project was scrapped.

When announced, the film would be the first in a trilogy starring Tom Cruise, which would also be linked to Dark Universe – a monster saga planned by Universal Pictures.

Although it raised $ 408 million worldwide, the feature only earned $ 80 million in the United States. With the huge budget of $ 125 million, the return did not justify the investment.

Finally, “The Mummy 2” and Dark Universe have been canceled.

When the film was released, editor-in-chief Renato Marafon arrived in Mexico City to interview the very likeable Tom Cruise.

In an interview with THR, director Alex Kurtzman spoke about the production and the mistakes he learned from its failure.

Enjoy watching:

“The mummy is not what I wanted it to be. I am no longer involved in it and have no idea what is going on. I look back now and what seemed painful at the time turned out to be a blessing. I’ve learned that I have to follow my own instincts and when I can’t do it, I don’t think I can be successful.

He adds, “[Os filmes de monstros da Universal] they are beautiful because the monsters are imperfect characters and we see ourselves in them. I hope these are the films they will make; I want to see them.”

Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella, Russell Crowe and Jake Johnson are the stars.
