The Tom Cruise-headlined remake of The Mummy that arrived in cinemas this summer did decent enough business (it made over $400m worldwide!), but critics weren’t that keen on the movie. In fact, many of them instead drew attention to the more recent collection of Mummy movies, that were headlined by Brendan Fraser.
The films were The Mummy, The Mummy Returns and The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor, and all three have been brought together in a special Blu-ray collection.
Here’s the official blurb…
Rediscover all three adrenaline filled feature films from The Mummy franchise in this newly packaged trilogy.
The Mummy: In 1925, in the Sahara Desert, a group of treasure hunters stumble on a 3,000 year old tomb and the mummified incarnation of an Egyptian priest out for revenge: As punishment for killing Pharaoh Seti and sleeping with his mistress, Egyptian priest Imhotep was mummified alive and cursed. But in 1923 he is inadvertently resurrected by treasure hunters and must be stopped before he can wreak his final vengeance on the world.
The Mummy Returns: The mummified body of Imhotep is transported to a museum in London. Once again he wakes and so begins a new campaign of rage and terror.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor: Taking off the wraps once more, but this time the action moves to China for round three of the Mummy adventure. For 2,000 years the ruthless Chinese Dragon Emperor (Jet Li) and his vast army of warriors have been frozen in time, cast in clay, waiting for their moment to rise again. When young archaeologist Alex O’Connell (Luke Ford) is duped into bringing the ancient warlord back to life, he soon realises he has to call in the only people he knows with experience and knowledge of how to battle the undead – his parents, father Rick (Brendan Fraser) and mother Evelyn (Maria Bello). As the emperor attempts to re-unite with his massed warriors and finally fulfil his dream of world domination, Alex and his family, along with mystical, high-kicking sorceress Zi Juan (Michelle Yeoh) and a rival cast of undead, have to pull out all the stops to keep the evil tyrant from achieving his ends.
We have a Blu-ray set to give away. When you’re done, you might want to try your luck at online Greek slots too, with a Greek mythology theme.
