Universal Pictures is bringing you a remake of The Mummy, whether you like it or not.

Tom Cruise stars in this new version of the beloved franchise, replacing Brendan Fraser’s historical action/comedy story with a gritty modern reboot. You can’t help but notice the similarities between this trailer and, well, every other action movie Tom Cruise has ever made.

It basically looks like Mission: Impossible with some supernatural elements thrown in.  

Maybe later trailers will win us over, but right now it’s hard to imagine this standing out from the other action movies we’ll see in 2017.
