EMPIRE – The new issue of Empire is in all good and not-so-good newsagents now, and within its pages there are a whole host of movie exclusives – among them, a sneak peek of The Mummy, the first in Universal’s planned Dark Universe series of films. We’ve studied the ancient papyrus of the issue in order to bring you a small preview – see below, and click to embiggen.

 

 

The image shows the film’s ostensible villain, Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella): unwrapped after being entombed for millennia to wreak havoc in the 21st century. If we’re to care about her, she can’t simply have a one-dimensional world domination complex. “The thing I’ve been focused on more than anything is that she has a really good reason to be where she’s at,” explains the film’s director, Alex Kurtzman. “If we can relate to her, and experience that weird, confusing Universal feeling you get of loving and caring about the monster, then hopefully I will have succeeded.”

THE EDIT/NET-A-PORTER – Welcome to our annual Women in Hollywood portfolio. For 2017, one choice was a no-brainer: next month, Patty Jenkins becomes the first female director of a female-led superhero movie with Wonder Woman. It’s a big moment for Hollywood and gender equality, not to mention a must-see film. Joining her is producer Kimberly Steward, whose very first feature film project was an Oscar winner, and three actresses transitioning from under-the-radar talents to fully fledged stars, Sofia Boutella, Zoey Deutch and Sasha Lane, who have so much more than beauty to recommend them. Make a point of watching their work this year.

 

 

SOFIA BOUTELLA

 

After working as a dancer for Madonna, Hollywood beckoned for Algerian-born Boutella, 35, via action franchises like Kingsman and Star Trek. This year, she takes on The Mummy with Tom Cruise and David Leitch’s Atomic Blonde.

THE WRAP – Universal Pictures announced Thursday that it has canceled the London premiere of Tom Cruise’s “The Mummy” in the wake of Monday’s deadly bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester England.

 

“The Mummy” event had been scheduled for Thursday, June 1.

 

“All of us at Universal have been devastated by the terror attack in Manchester and continue to stand with the community and country as it recovers,” the studio said in a statement. “Out of respect to those affected by this tragedy we have decided not to move forward with the London premiere for ‘The Mummy’ scheduled to take place next week.”

 

On Wednesday, Warner Bros. called off its own London premiere for the DC Films release “Wonder Woman.” In its statement, the studio said, “Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent tragedy in the UK. In light of the current situation, we will not be proceeding with our plans for the Wonder Woman premiere and junket activities in London.”

 

“Wonder Woman” will have its U.S. premiere Thursday in Los Angeles. The film opens June 1 in the U.K. and June 2 in in the U.S.

 

In addition, Ariana Grande postponed her tour in response to the attack that killed 22 people and injured dozens more just after her Monday concert at the 22,000-seat Manchester Arena.
