New teaser showed Ahmanet’s back story

In the trailer, Nick Morton (Cruise) happened to unearth Ahmanet. However, as he is transporting the mummy, the plane crashed leading to his death.

Later, he is seen inside a body bag and got resurrected to stop the evil villain from destroying the Earth.

In “The Mummy,” Norton is going to join Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis) and Sgt. Vail (Jake Johnson) in a different kind of adventure to stop the Egyptian princess. “She will not stop until she has remade our world,” Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe) warned.

In the tune of Rolling Stones’ “Paint it, Black,” the teaser also featured the time when Ahmanet is just going to become the Queen of Egypt. But, the twist of fate had changed when she killed the King of Egypt that led to her being buried alive.
