Its really beginning to annoy me that people think the new mummy has anything to do with the brendan fraser franchise, that was just an ok, sometimes cool action film. This new mummy is a remake of the original mummy movie way way back in 1930 this is the beginning of a new universe that will include the classic monsters like frankenstein, wolf man and creatire from the black lagoon. Apologies is taken as me ranting im just trying to clear it up
@AMiniMaster, I know right? Even the Brendan Fraser film was in a sense a remake of the original mummy. Universal has been remaking that movie for years now.
@ToadsWetSocket, this doesn't say that its a remake of the brendan fraser trilogy. It just says that the brendan fraser one was also a remake. The one with tom cruise is still just a remake of the 1930's one not the 1999 one
@AMiniMaster, yep. I can read too
@AMiniMaster, while I agree the movie was awful.
@AMiniMaster, though im worried about this movie only because tom cruise. Im excited for the monster universe
@T9x, yeah the casting announcements are really fun! The rock is rumoured to play wolfman, javier bardem as frankenstein, it should be fun at the very least
@AMiniMaster, can't wait for wolfman vs Frankenstein
@AMiniMaster, well most of us have never heard of a movie from the 30s so the BF version is what people are going to draw comparisons to
@AMiniMaster, read somewhere, not sure how true it is, that the first 2 or 3 Fraser Mummy movies actually are canon in this new universe they're making. Probably the first 2, to skirt that Scorpion King nonsense.
I fvcking hate Hollywood. This was Brendan's franchise. He's fallen on rough times and this was his perfect chance for a comeback. But no. Better go with the even older action scientologist whose been in more movies in the last 5 years than Brendan's has in his entire career. #notmymummymovie
@Jesus Chrysler, have you seen it? The bitch slaps suffered by Cruise will make it all better. I promise. Literally the movie is made by how brutally Cruise gets bitch slapped.
@Jesus Chrysler, It stinks seeing an alright guy lose a job to a prick. When an actor is pretty cool is easier to support their movie. I may be a hypocrite considering I watch all of Bruce Willis movies.
@Jesus Chrysler, I haven't seen it but from what I understand this one was set in present day. Brendan Fraser's was set in the 30's-40's I believe. His character would be really old if still alive or he'd have to play his great grandson. I have no desire to see it, but might have if it he was in the story.
Let's be honest the best character of the movie was Eddie Hyde.
@Aeyo, or the guy from "lets be cops". I forget his name, but god he was funny!
Gee, they approached it with the same logic as Suicide Squad and the Power Rangers movie, and it somehow failed. Who'd have thunk it?! 🤣
Mummies are in the public domain, guys. Don't have a crap attack.
It was a fantastic movie. Nothing like the ones with Brendan Frazier. I literally just saw it today. DONT LET THE REVIEW NAZIS MESS WITH YOUR HEAD!!!
Will public sentiment mean that people won't go see this new mummy movie because it doesn't have Brendan Fraser?
Eh I liked it.
His face xD it's like he did it on purpose... wait.
