Well, ain’t that something! You never know what mysteries lie in wait for you in Dr. Jekyll’s Prodigium. Inverse has pointed at that within its hallowed halls, if you’re really looking closely, you’ll find a link to the 1999 Mummy film starring Brendan Fraser.
According to the site: “Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) and Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis) visit the secret London headquarters of Prodigium. The headquarters is full of relics and monster paraphernalia, including a severed hand of a Creature from the Black Lagoon in formaldehyde and a fanged vampire skull. There, Jekyll (Russell Crowe) loses control and turns into Mr. Hyde. As Hyde wails on Nick, Jenny tries to gain entrance into the room to assist him. A Prodigium employee who has seen Jekyll transform before attempts to stop her. The two scuffle, but eventually Jenny grabs a heavy book and knocks him on the head. There’s a brief, brief shot of the book — and it’s familiar. It’s the Book of the Dead from the ‘99 Mummy, complete with a star-shaped lock.”
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. The cast also includes Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, Russell Crowe, and Sofia Boutella as the titular character.
The creative team on this action-adventure event is led by director/producer Alex Kurtzman and producer Chris Morgan. Sean Daniel, who produced the most recent Mummy trilogy, produces alongside Kurtzman and Morgan. The script is by Jon Spaihts and Christopher McQuarrie.
Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Boutella) 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.
