Mummy 3 update

06.18.2008
Director Rob Cohen has offered a fresh update on the progress of this summer's non-Jones adventure THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR.

The blog post included a small pic of the international poster for the flick, which is a shame since the image appears to be a slight improvement on what we've seen in the US. Cohen is putting the finishing touches on the score for the film, and says that movie's final runtime will be 1h 54m and the trailer will be attached to WANTED on June 27th. The new MUMMY flick arrives August 1st, with Brendan Fraser now battling Jet Li and probably lots of gusting sand.

Cohen also posted a snap of one of his new triplets, and if they're anything like daddy's filmography (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS, xXx and STEALTH), those kids are going to be excessively noisy and possibly jet-propelled. Check out the whole update RIGHT HERE!

I'm still uneasy about this movie. It doesn't look terrible, but I don't know if I can say it looks good at this point. At least Fraser is back.

I saw the trailer in the theater and it looks terrific . Some of the visual effects look dodgy but that's a given with the Mummy films , they are glorified b movies that you can't take too seriously .

In comparison to Indy 4 , M3 looks like a much better film , funny without being forced , great action sequences , and more interesting characters . The father son pairing in M3 looks way more effective in this then it did in Indy 4 .

We have Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh in the same film , a

We have Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh in the same film , a silly story about ancient warriors being ressurected for a zombie army , cool cgi creatures , tongue in cheek humor like the first two , and Fraser genuinely seems to be enjoying himself , as does everyone . I can't wait to see this , it looks like a great time at the theater .

Freak Rachel W . , if she thought she was too good for this type of work , go and make another Constantine , i won't miss her for a second .

nah

i'm not going to see it because it looks stupid, and because Rachel Weiz (the reason i liked the first one) isn't going to be in it.

Great poster. And I expect this to be at least ALMOST as fun as Indiana Jones, if not as good. Better, however...I'll have to wait and see.

X-Kid...

How in the hell have you NOT sen Indiana Jones, man? Not picking on you, but Jesus.

As far as this goes, the one thing that disappoints me is that Weiz isn't coming back. Continuity fuck-ups like that really grind my gears. Other than that, I'm not expecting anything from this other than popcorn fun. The trailer seems to promise that, so I'm in for it (with low expectations, mind you).

The mummy: tomb of the dragon emperor

I've never seen any of the Indiana Jones films, so I can't say that The Mummy films are any more entertaining, but I have seen the first two Mummy films and I have enjoyed them both, so I'm looking foward to the third film, I'm bumbed out that Rachel Weiz isn't in this one, but that doesn't mean the actress replacing her will affect the film... I mean... TDK replaced their leading lady for a better (I think) actress,I'd choose Maggie Gyllenhaal over Katie Holmes any day, but that's not the

That's why it was posed as an open question. But thanks for overreacting!

I love how the writers of this site always ASSUME that everyone who reads their articles share the same opinions as them.

INDIANA JONES was a damn entertaining movie, as a matter of fact. Something THE MUMMY movies only wish they could be.

The trailer still doesn't convince me. Have to wait and see for this one.

With Rachel Weisz gone I don't have very high hopes for this movie and as bad as the second one was this one doesnt have a prayer.

I'm still skeptical.

I dunno, the first and second one were a blast, but somehow I'm not feeling this one. (Please don't be like Spider-Man 3)

And I miss Rachel Weisz. :(
