El guionista de la película augura que esta vez la aventura irá acompañada de mucho terror:
I think a similar desire to legitimately explore the frightening and the cosmic.
In The Mummy, I think we’re going to see the first Mummy film in the entire Universal canon with the true power to terrify. The earliest [Boris] Karloff and Bela Lugosi Mummy movies were scary in a small way, perhaps a dated way. They were almost parlor movies.
Subsequent movies have been more swashbuckling.
This one is going to have all of that action and adventure, but a legitimate power to terrify. I think that’s going to be the new experience of that film.
