I hope he’s a cool looking dragon.

The Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is coming out tomorrow. It’s still starring Brendan Fraser as Rick O’Connell but this time his wife, Evelyn O’Connell is being played by Maria Bello. According to imdb “Rachel Weisz announced that she will not be reprising her role of Evelyn due to different interests with the screenplay.” That’s sad because I really liked Rachel’s role in the films and personally I think this new actress is ugly and not Egyptian-looking like Rachel Weisz. Also, John Hannah is still playing Jonathan Carnahan.

In this movie Alex O’Connell (Rick & Evelyn’s son) is supposedly only 2 years older than he was in the 2nd mummy movie but from the looks of the actor, he is around 20. (He’s actually 27 😛 what a dumb choice of a son for Brendan Fraser.) Alex is played by Luke Ford.

The plot of this movie seems like they just stole the old 2 and wanted to make it Asian-themed seeing as how the Dragon Emperor was double crossed by a sorceress to spend eternity in suspended animation. I mean if you think about it, in the 1st movie the mummy was being the traitor by loving the king’s plaything and then he killed himself when he got caught and then in the 2nd movie Anck Su Namun backstabbed him when she could have possibly died. In both situations he was “died” for a woman he loved which is why I’m betting that there was a love interest between the Emperor and the Sorceress.

The plot follows the same basic line as the first 2 obviously since a mummy rises up and then you have to kill him. But it’s not like you can just have the mummy kill Brendan Frasier and be like ok everyone you can go home now ;).

    Yay, I’m actually really excited about this, not because I think it’ll be good, but cause it’ll be entertaining, like all Brendon Frasier movies. And you have to love Asian Jane Seimore, that is probably one of the most amusing parts for me.

    Yeah it’ll definitely be entertaining because Brendan Fraser always is. I love the episodes in Scrubs where he was Dr. Cox’s bff. Who’s Asian Jane Seymour?

    So what, his son is supposed to be… 11? Rofl.

    I think it’s more like 14 or something cuz I think he was 12 but I dunno it could be like 11 too! Geez this director fails is what I think 🙂

    Sounds like Tomb of the Dragon Emperor was a lot of what most people expected… I can’t help thinking that Brendan Frasier tries too hard

    I personally think that the movie had potential if only they had the original actress, Rachel Weisz (Either that or someone better at acting than Maria Bello :P) and someone else for the son (someone who could act!). 🙂

    Bah, if you’re in the Mummy movies, you’re not allowed to act!
