With The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor opening on Friday, the action adventure series starring Brendan Fraser is about to become a trilogy!
We decided we'd celebrate this trilogy that has also created two spin-offs by updating all three movies on our site.
The Mummy (1999)
The original The Mummy introduced us to Rick O'Connell, an unlikely hero that was serving as a captain of the French Foreign Legion until he joins forces with Evelyn, the librarian, and her brother Jonathan. This movie set the formula where someone accidentally summons a mummy and our heroes must fight them off. Enjoy the photo montage for a trip down memory lane.
The Mummy Returns (2001)
Released 2 years after the first, but 9 years in the The Mummy universe, we join back up with our hero, Rick O'Connel for The Mummy Returns. Rick is now married to Evelyn and the two have an 8 year old child, Alex, together. In the sequel, again, Imhotep is summoned again, however, he's not the only threat as Imhotep raises an even dead. Relive the sequel that had even more special effects and introduced us to the acting skills of The Rock, err... Dwayne Johnson, with the following movie stills:
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008)
Opening this weekend, we'll be introduced to the third movie in the trilogy, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. This third movie takes place ten years later and in the Far East this time. Rick, Evelyn, Jonathan, and their now grown-up son, Alex, are back to their mummy fighting ways. Just how will this movie fare? We'll bring you the reviews and updates as we have them! For now, enjoy these photos that have been released for the movie.
