There’s a second, sweet trailer out for Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. There’s mummy armies (duh) except this time they’re Asian. One nice thing about mummy armies is that they’re very egalitarian. No matter their ethnicity they seem to look and act the same (kill the living).
The rest of the film seems similarly derivative, but it doesn’t matter to me. I’ll watch Asian mummy armies clash all day. I’ve always said that. There’s even a few rip offs of Crouching Tiger (also starring Michelle Yeoh) and 300, but guess what. Those movies rocked, too.
I’d rather have an archeological adventure trilogy end in a predictable way than try to throw some crazy curveball that has nothing to do with the tried and true formula for the first movies. This ain’t an art house, and I’m not wearing horn rimmed glasses and skinny jeans.
