‘The Mummy’: Tom Cruise praises Russell Crowe, as Mr Hyde is revealed

Ahead of promotion for next month’s The Mummy, the first official reboot of the classic universal monsters, Tom Cruise praised co-star Russell Crowe during a pre-recorded interview with the Today show.

Cruise opened up on working with co-star Crowe, 53, gushing about “The kind of talent that he has” and “I had a blast with Russell (Crowe), he’s a brilliant actor…”

“The kind of talent that he has and screen presence…”I’ve wanted to work with him in a very long time. I have a lot of respect for him.”

Check out the clip via Daily Mail below as Cruse, 54, revealed his daredevil side, discussing the stunts in zero gravity.

During the interview with Sunrise, Cruise went into detail on the almost-unimaginable stunt of the intense plane crash revealed in early trailers.

“Annabelle and I are flying around in that sequence and actually, we shot that for real. It’s a stunt I’ve been wanting to do and when I saw that they had an airplane crash in this film….(I had to get involved).

“Basically you’re in zero gravity for over 20 seconds and I built this set inside this airplane. We shot it for two days to create that sequence, and it’s very intense,” he continued to explain.

Crowe stars as Dr. Henry Jekyll in the action adventure horror film and fans got their first glimpse of Crowe as the monstrous Mr. Hyde in a new sneak peak video – at the bottom.

Sofia Boutella is the titular creature, a risen Princess Ahmanet, an Egyptian Princess, who was imprisoned when she summoned a great evil and murdered her father when he failed to uphold his promise to make her pharaoh after he sired a son leading to her becoming the horrific monster in the film.

Cruise is Nick Morton, an amoral tough guy who runs afoul of a resurrected ancient Egyptian.

Boutella impressed fans in Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond and playing the titular creature will cement her in the minds of fanboys everywhere. The cast also includes Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Chasty Ballesteros and Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson)

The Mummy hits theaters June 9, 2017.

Here’s 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.
