With The Mummy just around the corner, a whole new franchise is rearing its monstrous head while Universal seeks to expand its reach… but do we even want more franchises in the already crowded movie listings?

The Mummy is the first of Universal’s upcoming franchise, Universal Monsters; a series of films that are intended to, in Universal’s words, “take [the classic horror stories] out of the horror genre, put it more in the action-adventure genre and make it present day, bringing these incredibly rich and complex characters into present day and reimagine them and reintroduce them to a contemporary audience.”
