BIG Question! Why There Won’t be Tom Cruise’s The Mummy 2?



Released in 2017, the movie featuring Tom Cruise has taken one of the biggest turnovers in the block office and became an instant success. However, a lot of things remain unclear for the people as the finale moment of the series takes a different approach and people start to question the possible future of the series. There are multiple questions regarding the return of the show and that universal feeling.

Though Tom Cruise is known for her versatile acting and amazing stunts, it was shocking for the fans how the famous star of the legendary movie, The Mummy didn’t receive the same level of recognition that the other films generated. The year 2017 was a tragic time as the box office didn’t appreciate the movie and it was generally a flop.

Though the film managed to generate profit, it wasn’t according to the plan. Talking about the film, the creators said, “We worked with an amazing group of dancers for about six months to develop the look and feel of the zombies. As a methodology, the idea was, we’re always going to put people in the frame because the human eye cannot be tricked by CG when it comes to that kind of movement, but it can be tricked if the bulk of what you are seeing is real. You get real actors, and what we did was skinny them down in CG remove their hands and heads, and replace those with skeleton hands and heads. What you are seeing is predominately practical. … Your brain hopefully succumbs to the illusion.”

Adding to the movie and the production detail, he revealed, The sheer claustrophobia of it, the long, long takes where you are just watching them swimming toward him, I thought would be incredibly uncomfortable. Inside a water tank, we built the set. A fair amount of the environment of the set is CG. There were limitations for what we could build there, and certain things that were practically possible. There was a lot in the environment around them that you couldn’t tell was CG, and that’s because where your eye goes is to the real people in the frame.

However, many people will be shocked to learn that the film, which cast Tom Cruise, was originally planned for Brendan Fraser. But things changed and it was all history.

However, the versatile actor talked in an interview and revealed that he was so delighted to see the film and revealed his pure thoughts by saying, “Working with Rachel, it’s Rachel f’in Weisz,” Fraser explained. “She’s wonderful, you know if you’re impressed with the talent and good humor. A belly laugh that could break a window. I mean, come on. It’s Rachel Weisz, she’s lovely. And believe everything. She got stuck with all the exposition in that show. Which is good, that means all the talking. I was just the guy like, ‘Hurry up, let’s go, come on! That thing is gonna go bang!’ It worked out.”

The reason why the movie wasn’t a hit is because it didn’t make people scared enough. Speaking about the movie, Cruise, who was playing the major role, can’t take the movie single-handedly. All the other aspects of the film were blended. It is because of “most aspects of the project, from script approval to post-production decisions. He also had a great deal of input on the film’s marketing and release strategy, advocating for a June debut in a prime summer period.”

The film was meant for the trilogy and during the talk, Fraser said, “Gosh, I don’t know any juicy details about it, but it’s kinda been an open-ended question for some time now,” Fraser explained. “I’m not opposed to it. I don’t know an actor who doesn’t want a job.”
