The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor Teaser Trailer
With just under three months to go until the release of The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, the very first teaser trailer has finally debuted. Don't be fooled, the scenes you're seeing in this trailer are the best in the entire movie. This new trailer is vastly different than the one I was shown at ShoWest. It looks like it features some cool set pieces and mediocre special effects, but really, this movie is going to be bad. I think the fact that Rob Cohen's name is so prominently featured at the end should be enough of a warning. This looks like Stealth and xXx put together but with a Chinese mummies and Brendan Fraser instead. There's a reason why Rachel Weisz didn't return as Evy - it's because she knew how bad this was going to be. Take a look for yourself at the first trailer from The Mummy 3.

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.
