In Episode 52 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Robert Yaniz Jr. uncovers director Alex Kurtzman’s new take on The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella. The film is, of course, intended to kick off Universal’s monster-centric Dark Universe. We’ll investigate whether The Mummy provides a solid foundation for what’s to come as well as how it stacks up against the 1999 edition, which saw Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz bring the classic tale to the modern age. Also: Rob reviews A24’s latest, director Trey Edward Shults’ It Comes At Night starring Joel Edgerton, and discusses his thoughts on the latest news surrounding X-Men: Dark Phoenix. It’s a jam-packed episode of the Crooked Table Podcast. So let’s get to it before a certain Egyptian princess catches up with us.
