Mummy 3 WrapsMeh
Rob Cohen has finished shooting The Mummy 3 and now its time for all the editing and fancy work in the studio to make it a movie. Rob Cohen posts on his blog;
I have mixed emotions about finishing. This has been a fresh and exciting ride. I got stretched, I pushed the limits of everyone, I got to do amazing things every hour of the past five months, and the amount of energy it has taken is everything right down to the fumes. We have done 2500 shots between Vic and I. Maybe the average movie has 800. But that’s what a movie like this takes to give you, the viewer, the ride.
I love the Mummy franchise and having Jet Li in this one and bringing back Brendan Fraser makes me have high hopes that Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emporer will kick some ass! Mummy 3 will be in theatres July 30th.
The blockbuster global Mummy franchise takes a spellbinding turn as the action shifts to Asia for the next chapter in the adventure series, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Brendan Fraser returns as explorer Rick O’Connell to combat the resurrected Han Emperor (Jet Li) in an epic that races from the catacombs of ancient China high into the frigid Himalayas. Rick is joined in this all-new adventure by son Alex (newcomer Luke Ford), wife Evelyn (Maria Bello) and her brother, Jonathan (John Hannah). And this time, the O’Connells must stop a mummy awoken from a 2,000-year-old curse who threatens to plunge the world into his merciless, unending service.
Doomed by a double-crossing sorceress (Michelle Yeoh) to spend eternity in suspended animation, China’s ruthless Dragon Emperor and his 10,000 warriors have laid forgotten for eons, entombed in clay as a vast, silent terra cotta army. But when dashing adventurer Alex O’Connell is tricked into awakening the ruler from eternal slumber, the reckless young archaeologist must seek the help of the only people who know more than he does about taking down the undead: his parents.
As the monarch roars back to life, our heroes find his quest for world domination has only intensified over the millennia. Striding the Far East with unimaginable supernatural powers, the Emperor Mummy will rouse his legion as an unstoppable, otherworldly force...unless the O’Connells can stop him first.
