Take a look inside the briefcase of Russell Crowe’s Dr. Jekyll
This morning, Universal Pictures announced that their shared universe of monster movies will officially be known as the Dark Universe. Not long after the announcement was made, CS received a knock at the door and were then presented with a metal briefcase belonging to none other than Dr. Jekyll! According to the courier, Dr. Jekyll’s briefcase was “found” and turned over to us so we could explore the intriguing material contained within. In the gallery viewer below, you can take a look at Dr. Jekyll’s notes and research, all tied to the mysterious organization known as Prodigium.
Tom Cruise headlines The Mummy, which features Sofia Boutella as the title monster, , an ancient queen whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, leaving her entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert. When she is awakened in our current day, she brings with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy ushers in the new world of gods and monsters that is Universal’s Dark Universe.
The Mummy cast also includes Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson) and, as Dr. Jekyll, Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
The Mummy, in theaters June 9, is directed by Alex Kurtzman, who also produces alongside Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious series, Wanted) and Sean Daniel (The Mummy trilogy, The Best Man series). Jon Spaihts and Christopher McQuarrie wrote the screenplay, and Bobby Cohen executive produces.
