Final Guys #4 – The Mummy
The reboot of Universal monsters has begun! This week The Final Guys unwrap The Mummy. It’s the new Tom Cruise movie and the official launch of the Dark Universe. The Mummy kicks off a new series of films that will feature reimagined versions of Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man and more.
Along with Cruise, the film stars Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson and Russell Crowe. Crowe plays the dual role of Dr. Jekyll and another classic monster that we won’t spoil here.
So… is The Mummy any good? That’s the big question. There’s a lot riding on this film. Does the Dark Universe have a bright future? We’ll let you know what we think.
This week’s watch list includes a wide variety of flicks you may or may not want to seek out. The movies include The Devil’s Candy, Life, The Eyes of My Mother, The Dark, Swamp Ape and the Chuck Norris “classic” Hellbound. Plus, a couple of documentaries; I Know What I Saw and Expedition Bigfoot: Are we Ready for the Truth?
Enjoy the show and as usual, please let us know what you think.
