“Star Trek Beyond”

Like just about every other franchise, “The Mummy” is in the process of being rebooted as part of a shared universe. Tom Cruise is headlining the new series, which differs from the Brendan Fraser–led trilogy in that it’s set in the present day, with Sofia Boutella as the eponymous monster. Set photos from the film’s shoot in London reveal an early look at her version of the character.

Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Marwan Kenzari, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe all star in the film as well, with Crowe as Dr. Jekyll — part of the Universal Monsters universe that will also feature standalone Wolf Man, Van Helsing, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Bride of Frankenstein and Invisible Man films over the next several years.
