If you unwrap "The Mummy' trailer, you'll uncover a "Mission: Impossible" movie

The first trailer for The Mummy was released just a few days ago, and movie fans were quick to point out how similar some of the sequences seemed to star Tom Cruise’s other big franchise: the five-film Mission: Impossible series.

In fact, a new video proves that with some clever edits and the addition of actor Simon Pegg to a few scenes, The Mummy trailer could easily become the first look at Mission: Impossible — Mummy Protocol.

The mash-up trailer was created by the team at ScreenCrush, and pieces together audio and video from 2011’s Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol and various other installments of the series with the footage from The Mummy trailer to create a trailer for an entirely new film that works surprisingly well as yet another adventure for Cruise’s Mission: Impossible alter ego, Ethan Hunt.

The plane crash sequence in The Mummy trailer works particularly well with the explosive action that’s a hallmark of the Mission: Impossible movies, and the zero-gravity element of that scene is indeed the sort of thing that wouldn’t seem out of place in a Mission: Impossible film. The dust storm sequence from Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol also blends well with the scenes from The Mummy trailer featuring star Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret ServiceStar Trek Beyond) conjuring a similar sort of storm as The Mummy.

The Mummy casts Boutella as an ancient Egyptian queen who wreaks havoc on the modern era after she’s brought back from the dead. The film’s cast also includes Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson), and Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).

The film is directed by Alex Kurtzman, from a script by The Usual Suspects screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie and Prometheus screenwriter Jon Spaihts. The Mummy is intended to kick off both a new franchise, as well as tie in to a new cinematic universe based on the classic Universal monsters. (Universal has plans to develop new films based on The Wolfman, The Invisible Man, The Bride of Frankenstein, and Van Helsing.)

The Mummy hits theaters June 9, 2017.
