Could Russell Crowe be the worst Jekyll & Hyde of all time? One of the earliest indications of The Mummy‘s Dark Universe designs was the casting of Russell Crowe opposite Tom Cruise as Dr. Henry Jekyll. This was, at first, exciting; it promised that the reboot of a franchise that was last in cinemas less than ten years ago would be making some efforts to expand its scope and, obviously and most prominently, it meant we’d be seeing the iconic dual personality scientist brought to life by a major screen presence.

In Universal Pictures’ The Mummy, in theaters June 9th, Russell Crowe plays Dr. Henry Jekyll, the owner of the Prodigium. As we’ve speculated in several posts, Crowe is the heart of the new Universal monsters universe as all of the film’s will revolve around his laboratory, with Tom Cruise being the Van Helsing-esque character that jumps from films to film battling all of the creatures.

Universal Pictures (via Syfy Wire) has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for their upcoming film The Mummy which teases a big punch-up between Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton and Russell Crowe’s Dr. Henry Jekyll.

Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy. Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, bringing 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 brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.

For a long time, Universal Pictures has been seeking a way to resurrect its monster pantheon. After all, just because they are in the coffin it doesn’t mean they’re really dead. Indeed, long before Marvel Studios made shared universes the new shiny toy in Hollywood, Universal Monsters had invented the concept for franchised movies in the 1940s with the Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s Monster, and even The Mummy getting involved in the strangest adventures. Now, we stand on the precipice of it happening again for 21st century audiences, beginning first and foremost with 2017’s The Mummy.

The Mummy looks good. Like, really good. That first trailer for Alex Kurtzman’s attempt at rebooting Universal’s monster movie saga made excellent use of Tom Cruise’s action-hero versatility, a contemporary military backdrop, a terrifying new creature (played by Sofia Boutella), and an intriguing cameo by Russell Crowe. So much A-list goodness! And The Mummy only improves as you dive into this Behind-The-Scenes video released by the studio, which sets up the new film’s mythology, and gets spicy with a bone-crunching Cruise-on-Crowe fight scene.
