Tom Cruise And Jimmy Fallon Act Out Kid Theater Versions Of The Mummy

Something tells us that these versions of The Mummy as written by children aren't what we're going to see when the movie hits the big screen on Friday. Jimmy Fallon recently recruited Tom Cruise for a version of his Kid Theater Tonight Show segment, asking the star to sit with him and read versions of his upcoming film The Mummy as written by kids.

The first script was written by 9-year-old Reese, featuring Fallon as the Mummy and Cruise as the Skeleton. The pair meet up at a playground in the middle of the night, where they get into a short altercation after Skeleton throws a bone at Mummy (it turns out the conflict started over a game of Duck, Duck, Goose). Luckily, though, the pair make up in the end and even get to do a head bump– which is like a fist bump, but with your head.

The second comes from 7-year-old Aaron, who cast Cruise as the Mummy and Jimmy as a boy named Charlie. Charlie is playing at the lake when he meets Mummy, who he says looks weird. "I know I look weird, I'm 2,000 years old," Mummy replies. The two quickly becomes friends, and Mummy realizes that he hasn't eaten in 2,000 years. As it turns out, they're both fans of hot dogs (Charlie likes his with ketchup, while Mummy likes his with dust), so they each eat 10,000 hot dogs as fast as they can. They both high five and fall asleep at the same time. 

The last script comes from 6-year-old Lucy, with Cruise as the Mummy once again and Fallon as the Sheep. The two are sitting together when Mummy gets the hiccups, which he quickly passes on to Sheep. Mummy brought some water that they can drink to fix their hiccups, but he drops it. He decides that the best way to clean up the spill is to just roll around in it, but he quickly falls asleep, still hiccuping throughout. Sheep decides to just leave him there and heads home, where he gives hiccups to his whole sheep family.

The real, big-screen version of The Mummy probably won't be as hilarious as the kids version, but it does have an impressive cast, with Sofia Boutella, Russell Crowe, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, and Courtney B. Vance joining Cruise. The movie is directed by Alex Kurtzman (Transformers) based on a script from Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) and Christopher McQuarrie (Edge of Tomorrow). The film will be released on June 9; while we wait, see some of the other future remakes and reboots that will blow everyone away.
