With just under two months left until The Mummy is awakened in theaters this June, the worldwide promo tour is about to begin for the Alex Kurtzman directed film. A week ago we brought word that select cast members would be heading to Sydney, Australia for the May 22nd premiere of The Mummy and now today we have word on yet another location. Universal has confirmed that The Mummy will receive a red carpet premiere in London, following the Taiwan premiere on May 25th. The London premiere will be held at the Odeon Cinema in Leicaster Square in England on Thursday, June 1st. Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, and director Alex Kurtzman are expected to attend the June 1st premiere after The Mummy premieres in Sydney and Taiwan.
As of right now, additional cast members such as Jake Johnson, Marwan Kenzari, Courtney B. Vance, and Russell Crowe have not been confirmed, however, Mr. Crowe will appear at the May 22nd premiere in Sydney.
We now know that Syndney, Australia is the first international stop for the cast and crew of The Mummy, with Taiwan following. During press day last week, director Alex Kurtzman confirmed a Mexico premiere for his Universal Monsters film. Additional premieres will be held in the United States.
Ahead of taking to the stage in the Melbourne Theatre Company’s Macbeth, actor Jai Courtney reveals how he earned Russell Crowe’s approval and why Aussies stick together in Hollywood.
When you first met Russell Crowe a few years ago, he told you that you’d been doing some terrible movies. If he saw your résumé now would it be up to his standards?
(Laughs.) He didn’t say terrible, but he did take the piss out of me a little bit. He was poking fun and trying to get a rise out of me to see what I was made of, and working with someone like Russell, you’ve got to be on your toes. That was probably, in a strange way, my first audition with him. If that conversation had gone down really awkwardly, I’m not sure he would’ve wanted to work with me. So we had a laugh and a drink, and before long we were getting ready to do a movie (The Water Diviner) together. That was a dream come true for me.
Who will play Cable in Deadpool 2? That has been a question for months now, with many names thrown in the ring as possible candidates. Plenty of actors have made it known that they’re available for the role, including Dolph Lundgren, Ron Perlman, Russell Crowe and perhaps most famously Stephen Lang. Kyle Chandler was wanted at one point, and is blamed for Tim Miller’s departure as a director, as Ryan Reynolds would not agree to cast the man. Pierce Brosnan has been teased for the role. And last we heard, Stranger Things star David Harbour was at the top of the most wanted list. But what is the Deadpool team really looking for when they finally cast their Cable? Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have finally opened up about the casting process. And they’re pretty much looking for the polar opposite of Deadpool. Says Reese.

Spoilers if you haven’t seen GLADIATOR, which, by the way, isn’t too far off from celebrating its twentieth anniversary. How’s that for making you feel old. Back in 2000, Ridley Scott’s historical epic told the story of Maximus (Russell Crowe), a Roman General who found himself reduced to slavery when Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), the power hungry son of Emperor Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris), betrayed him and seized control of Rome by murdering his own father. The film was a huge success at the time and even took home a few prestigious awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor at the 73rd Academy Awards.
