Everyone needs to stop pretending that Tom Cruise is a reasonable human being and understand that this man is a psychopath. What sane individual would do the things he does, just for a a few minutes worth of scene in an action movie. The Mission Impossible films have been a playground of sorts for this masochist, and we all need to stop being enablers and tell old man Cruise to start doing the kind of stuff normal 50 year old dudes do, like horde hard candies and collect social security checks.
The latest project for this maniac is the upcoming reboot of The Mummy, which will also kick off Universal’s monsters universe. The featurette shows Cruise being Cruise and doing a bunch of his own stunts, because he has a death wish. Even showing the plane crash in the zero g vomit comet. Some one please stop this person, before he breaks a hip.
Here is the official synopsis for The Mummy:
Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (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.
