The guys over at Worst Previews have landed some more images from Rob Cohen’s upcoming third entry in the “Mummy” franchise. Well, if you don’t count “The Scorpion King”, and I don’t think anyone does, do they? In any case, the new images are pretty spiffy, and shows a very action-packed movie. I still don’t really buy Jet Li as a bad guy, though, mostly because he’s kind of small, and I would imagine that he’d look even smaller standing next to Brendan Fraser. But hey, maybe director Rob Cohen has something up his sleeve that will make us “buy” Li as a badass villain. (He was semi-badass in “Lethal Weapon 4”, but I still didn’t really buy that one, either…)
In the Far East, trouble-seeking father-and-son duo Rick (Brendan Fraser) and Alex O’Connell (Luke Ford) unearth the mummy of the first Emperor of Qin (Jet Li) — a shape-shifting entity who was cursed by a wizard (Michelle Yeoh) centuries ago.
Starring Brendan Fraser, Luke Ford, Jet Li, Maria Bello, Michelle Yeoh, Isabella Leong, and directed by Rob Cohen.
