Mummy 4? Please no.

08.07.2008

THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR made something like $40 million its opening weekend. That'd be enough to open in first place on most weekends but THE DARK KNIGHT was still steamrolling the competition. But still $40 million is more than THE MUMMY 3 should have made in its entire run. It's that bad. And I, as well as all of us here at JoBlo, love Roger Ebert but Rog, three stars? It's stuff like that that's going to get us a fourth MUMMY movie. And wouldn't you know it, director Rob Cohen is already talking about it. He told MTV, "We now have it clear that the MUMMY franchise can travel...we know that if we want to go to Mexico or we want to go to Peru, we can." This is based on comments by stars Brendan Fraser and Maria Bello that the film's next stop is either the Amazon or Peru. How about nowhere? How about the MUMMY's next stop is on a dusty shelf in some Hollywood storage bin? For lots more on what Cohen imagines could be in a fourth MUMMY movie (including lots of spoilers on what happens at the end of MUMMY 3), check out the MTV Movies Blog.

The only way a 4th Mummy can be good is if Rob Cohen goes away and Stephen Sommers returns in the director's chair.

And get rid of Maria Bello and convince Rachel Weisz to come back. If Weisz can not come back then kill off Evie.

But since it sounds like Cohen and Bello are to return then way to go to ruin what started out as a very entertaining franchise.

The mummy IV

I haven't had a chance (or $) to see TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR but I can say that I've enjoyed the first two MUMMY films and if theirs already talk of a fourth then I think they should set it up in MEXICO, there are allot of ancient pyramids and mummy's over there so that would be a good place to shoot the fourth one, but until I see MUMMY 3 I'll decide if I'm up for a fourth one.

Seriously!

How about scrapping all this CG action Mummy crap and making a seriously scary Mummy movie. Mummy 3 doesn't even have a mummy in it.

Get rid of Brendan Fraser and Maria Bello. OK, get rid of the entire cast!

Make it scary with practical effects!!

I loved the first one, 2nd was disappointing but still enjoyable, I'll probably check out 3 on dvd, but from what i heard 3 was the nail in the coffin for this franchise.

Anyway, i heard similar rumors for pirates 4 and jurassic park 4 after the 3rd movies came out, so i really don't take any of this seriously.

buddha: Were not all like that.

As for Mummy 4... I wasn't a fan of Mummy 2 so I guess time will tell.

The Mummy: Tomb of Evita Peron

It could be a musical/action adventure...

Madonna could resurrect her acting career and maybe Antonio Banderas can play the reincarnated version of his character

If they're going to continue to make this franchise, at least make it interesting. Here's my suggestion for the next installment:

The Mummy 4: The Son of God.

The title alone conjures up what could be some of the greatest action sequences in cinematic history. It reaches so many markets. The religious sect and the morons that like actually like this crap.

boo hoo, i want my mummy...

if you went into this with the required "forgive and believe" mantra, this popcorn piece of pure fluff entertainment would have been just fine. you didnt expect genius, did you?

its not the 007/batman "grittier, darker, more adult" version of the mummy. its kiddie time. i wish they would film the pg version, along with a "hard-r" rated version, then i could go to an adult movie as an adult, and not be bothered once by you teens and 20-somethings with your talking, and texting during the

The Mummy movies are fun, so I'm all for seeing another one. I mean come on no one here wants to see these movies because they have great stories or gut wrenching emotions. We go because they are fun to watch. So to see another one would be cool.

I'll write it for free just to ensure that its not AS crappy as it could have been if they'd kept the same writers from number 3.

The 1st Mummy was perfect in my eyes, the 2nd, still completely enjoyable because they had all the same cast return and it was just bigger and better, even though some of the "past life" mumbo jumbo got kind of difficult to swallow when you return to watch the 1st one again. Nevertheless, both of them were awesome.

The 3rd destroyed any hope of this series

The 3rd destroyed any hope of this series ending on a perfect "Rachel Weisz" filled finale. I nearly cried when I got home from watching it.

Only if they bring back Benny

A Mummy commercial comes on yesterday bragging that the Mummy 3 was the #1 movie. HA! Their marketing department really jumped the gun on that one. FAIL!

WHY!?

The original was amazing, but Returns was useless and I didn't even see 3. Why must it continue!?

God bless

The MUMMY SUCKS

All three of these films SUCK ASS. It's like a re-imagining of Indiana Jones performed by autistic 5 year-olds.

Not only do the movies suck...but if YOU like any of the three Mummy movies...I'm afraid you suck too.

How about this movie goes on towards a 4th installment up my ass.

I'm all about high-octane action and disposable plot and what not...I get it. I Love it! But try doing it without a sequel or a remake....am I wrong by saying this? I'm just saying...why go ahead with more sequels to franchises that don't need to continue?

I also don't understand the beatings these films take. That said, I don't think Mummy 3 did a good job capturing the vibe of the first two until the final battle. I hope the rust has worn off and they can pick it up from there. I'm all for a fourth film.

Though I'd prefer it if Cohen wasn't directing it.

maybe

the first movie was great. the second was real good up until they went all CG with the scorpion king. i have not seen the third one yet, but from all the trailors ive seen, i see no reason why they wouldnt make a fouth one. the third will make its money and find a large audience of people who enjoyed it.
or would you rather see another Hulk movie or Indy meets E.T.? what the hell was that all about.
im sure when they made the Mummy 3 they werent waiting for the Oscars to call. its meant to

I neither get what people expected from this movie or why they thought it was so bad. It was an enjoyable, family friendly, disposable adventure film. High on action and short on logic, it's a decent way to spend an hour and a half. Take things for what they are.
