This summer Wonder Woman single-handedly saved a shared universe that had been mired in divisive opinions and diminishing returns on films that didn’t do as well as studios hoped. Spider-Man:Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continued the success of the almost decade old Marvel Cinematic Universe that continues to roll forward as a juggernaut at the box office.
Then there was The Mummy.
Expected to be the Man of Steel or Iron Man equivalent in kick starting a new shared universe, titled the Dark Universe, from Universal Pictures, the film pretty much came and left the theaters with a bit of a whimper. The issues of the film and it’s possible killing of the cinematic universe before it even begins is the subject of the latest Honest Trailers from Screen Junkies.
If you haven’t seen the film this entry form the Screen Junkies team perfectly sums up the movie. When you’re finished, we suggest popping in the 90’s The Mummy just to have some campy fun pallet cleansing.
