Tom Cruise Takes On 'The Mummy,' Fans Miss Brendan Fraser

The Mummy is getting a revamp, this time with Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe

And judging by fan and media reactions, like GQ's for example, we might be missing Brendan Fraser.

There's something you didn't expect.

The Mummy (2017) - Official Trailer

The next cinematic universe to take over the big screens rises on June 9th, 2017 when The Mummy hits theaters. Starring Tom Cruise, the film is set to kick off the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe, which will see the stories of familiar freaks like Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and the Wolfman interconnect for the first time.


They clearly weren't the only ones though. Similar to our recent election, now there was a trending hashtag, #NotMyMummy, signaling that the fanbase (there is a fanbase for The Mummy?) doesn't feel Tom Cruise has the chops to handle the job.
