WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Thousands of years ago, the Egyptian princess Ahmanet (Boutella) is denied the throne by her father, who she then murders before she is caught and buried alive, never to be seen again. In present day, however, American forces led by Nick Morton (Cruise) discover her tomb and unwittingly reawaken Ahmanet, who has spent millennia harbouring a grudge against humanity and will stop at nothing to reclaim what is rightfully hers…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
