Movie will now open June 9, 2017
Universal has pushed “The Mummy” remake starring Tom Cruise back 11 weeks, from its initial release on March 24, 2017 to June 9, 2017.
Other plot details remain under wraps.
The film is set to be the first in a series of monster movies. The studio hopes to build a cinematic universe out of its classic films.
Currently, the June 9, 2017 release date is looking a little crowded — the sequel to 2013’s “World War Z” is set to open on that date, as well “The Divergent Series: Ascendant,” the final installment in the franchise starring Shailene Woodley.
“Power Rangers,” meanwhile, is set to open on March 24, 2017.
