The Mummy: Reborn Kingdom (2025)

The iconic horror franchise is being resurrected once more. Universal Pictures has unveiled the first details for The Mummy: Reborn Kingdom, a bold reimagining of the legendary mummy mythos, set to rise from the sarcophagus in 2025.

Described as a spiritual successor to the beloved Brendan Fraser-led trilogy of the late 90s and early 2000s, the new film promises to blend classic monster movie thrills with a more expansive, fantastical scope, drawing inspiration from the rich mythology of ancient Egypt.

The story follows a young archaeologist, played by rising star Mena Massoud, who unwittingly awakens an ancient evil while excavating a long-lost tomb in the heart of the Sahara desert. As the reanimated mummy, portrayed through a combination of practical and digital effects, embarks on a murderous rampage, the protagonist finds himself thrust into a desperate race against time to stop the creature from unleashing a supernatural cataclysm that threatens to engulf the entire region.

Joining Massoud is a stellar supporting cast, including the legendary John Kani as a mysterious shaman with a deep connection to the mummy’s origins, as well as Rosamund Pike as a ruthless museum curator who seeks to harness the creature’s power for her own nefarious ends.

“This is a Mummy movie, but on a scale we’ve never seen before,” producer Alex Kurtzman promises. “We’re talking gods, demons, the very fabric of reality hanging in the balance. It’s a wild, epic ride that pays homage to the past while pushing the mythology into bold new territory.”
