April 21, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Universal Pictures has released a new international trailer for The Mummy, which you can see below. Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly shared a new photo from the film and spoke with the cast and crew about the titular mummy’s backstory. Here are highlights:

Director Alex Kurtzman on Nick Morton’s first meeting with Ahmanet: “They’re finally face-to-face. He’s realizing that he’s deeply, and desperately, cursed.”

Sofia Boutella on how ancient Egyptians played into her performance: “These people never shouted. They were the most powerful people, but they were just calm.”

Kurtzman on if other Universal monsters will appear: “The movie’s called The Mummy, not The Mummy Meets 12 Other Monsters. If we create a world that feels interesting and scary, then we will have succeeded in setting up the larger universe.”

Kurtzman on who Ahmanet is: “A woman who wasn’t content to be put in her place and wanted something more.”
