First Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor Teaser Poster
by Alex Billington
April 29, 2008
We now have the official teaser poster for the upcoming The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Finally every major summer movie has a poster; for the longest time this movie sat scheduled without a poster, or a trailer, or hardly any imagery - but now that's changed. Although this isn't much of an introduction, it should be enough to hold us over until the first trailer which better be in the next few weeks or this movie is screwed. With that being said, take a look, and importantly, sound off and let us know below - is anyone looking forward to this movie this summer?
The blockbuster global Mummy franchise takes a spellbinding turn as the action shifts to Asia for the next chapter in the adventure series, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Brendan Fraser returns as explorer Rick O'Connell to combat the resurrected Han Emperor (Jet Li) in an epic that races from the catacombs of ancient China high into the frigid Himalayas. Rick is joined in this all-new adventure by son Alex (newcomer Luke Ford), wife Evelyn (Maria Bello) and her brother, Jonathan (John Hannah). And this time, the O'Connells must stop a mummy awoken from a 2,000-year-old curse who threatens to plunge the world into his merciless, unending service.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is directed by action regular Rob Cohen of Dragonheart, Fast and the Furious, xXx, and yes, that terrible movie Stealth. The film is the third movie in the series, coming after The Mummy Returns (2001) and The Mummy (1999). The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor hit theaters everywhere this summer on August 1st.

Cool! Looking forward to this flick! Jet Li's appearance will reinvigorate interest in this series.

When a film takes that long to produce any kind of advertising, that's a sign of something wrong. The film is three months away and we don't even have a trailer which tells me that the studio does not think much of the film at all.

P.S. horrible poster.

not impressed and this film is white noise seeings how all the other big movies have been marketed for over 6 months now. too late in the game in my opinion.

It dosent have Rachel Weisz = wtf I wont see it.

This film seems every bit as underrated as "X-Files" and "The Incredible Hulk". I believe it's never too late to show a trailer nor a poster--now we've got one with like, 3 months to go. By that time, buzz would have increased as most of us would have already seen the highly anticipated blockbusters that were released before it.

I agree with Pickle, why advertise amovie that we all know can never compete with Ironman or The Dark Knight? I think that the studios are just biding thier time until these other blockbusters are out of the way. Seriously, after the summer hits are out of the way, what is left to see?

Sorry but when a studio refuses to show a trailer until the last minute, that a sign of a flop and just by the information given for this film tells me that its going to be awful movie.

this movie will do ok. honestly it will only do well with its followers. Frazier vs a 5 ft kung fu midget, please this movie was done all wrong. they should have killed it after #2. Also introducing new cast does not have the same grasp as seeing the original characters in it ( the original mummy character. good luck with this one! AG

I've been telling people about this one, and the first response is always "They're making another Mummy movie?!" Both good, in that they want to see another one, and bad, that no one even knows it exists....I think it will suffer because no one is advertising for it....

With everything else that I'm hyped to see this summer, this doesn't even cause a blip on the radar. Poster is not nearly as bad a$$ as those posters for the Dark Knight. I don't expect anything big from this unless they really pour on the marketing - in which case I'll still be seeing other flicks anyway.

repacing rachel weisz, no oded fehr, and adding jet li to the mix. i loved the first two, even enjoyed the scorpion king movie somewhat, but i think i might wait for dvd on this one and the poster sucks

Well...it's not gonna be anything new about the mummy but i'm still in. The fact that Brendan Fraser did another Mummy movie is gonna cool. BUT the fact that it's not Stephen Sommers directing the movie... i got a bug on this one... Well...we'll see the result next august.

Opinions are like Dodge Chargers, everybody got one.

Blockbuster global Mummy franchise!

No i think this will do well, If you notice everyone is doing late adding for films these days. The only ones that are doing the 12 month advance are movies like Batman, Ironman. Its just how there doing it, come say late may or june 1st youll have a trailer and then were gonna get slammed with the mummy addings. I am a bit bummed that Rachel is not on the bill, Jet is cool but he is so one sided with his acting. I watch alot of asian cinema and i know ive seen alot of asian actors with more talent than him. But lets just sit and relax and wait for the movies.!!!

stealth wasnt all that bad but hell i love the mummy films hope this looks good
darrin on Apr 30, 2008
"No i think this will do well, If you notice everyone is doing late adding for films these days." Not this late and there is still no trailer yet. Not a good sign at all and the poster sucks on top of that. And yes, Stealth was that bad.

Im excited. I would think that this could be comparable to RUSH HOUR 3 in terms of business. Slightly older franchise that will do decent but not spectacular and mildly pleasing.
Ryan on Apr 30, 2008
I think the old hard core mummy fans will either be extrmely excited or completely offended and Jet Li is in it so that might get some people excited but either way i'm gunna be in front of you in line
