Universal Rebrands Monster Movies As Dark Universe

Universal's upcoming relaunch of their classic movie mosters, kicking off on June 9th with Alex Kurtzman's The Mummy, will henceforth be known as The Dark Universe.

The studio has also confirmed that Beauty And The Beast director Bill Condon has been locked down to direct Bride Of Frankenstein, which will hit theatres on February 14th, 2019.

To mark news of this new cinematic world going forward, Universal has also revealed a brand new motion logo created by Weta Digital, with a new musical theme composed by Danny Elfman. This new logo will play before each film starting with The Mummy next month.

The studio has also dropped a new photo featuring the stars of both imminent and future Dark Universe features, gathered for the first time: Johnny Depp as the Invisible Man, Javier Bardem as Frankenstein’s Monster, Tom Cruise as soldier of fortune Nick Morton, Sofia Boutella as The Mummy, and Russell Crowe as Dr. Henry Jekyll.

It will be Crowe's character that will connect all the stories within the Dark Universe through the mysterious Prodigium organization. The multi-national organization is tasked with tracking, studying and sometimes destroy evil monsters. Prodigium works outside all governments and protects the public from knowledge of the evil that exists in society.

Other projects set for release within The Dark Universe include remakes of Creature From The Black Lagoon, being wrote by Aquaman scribe Will Beall, and The Wolf Man.

Are you excited to witness the unfolding of this new cinematic universe?
