Friday Flick: The Mummy

The MummyUnofficial Description:




There’s all these stories about the offices of National Lampoon or Saturday Night Live, where the writers and actors would do massive amounts of drugs while drinking enough alcohol to bring an elephant to its knees, and writing all the bits that went into their stuff. This movie makes me think of that. Like, they just sat around and said, “What if we did THIS?” “THAT’S BRILLIANT!”

*At Universal Studios*

“Oh man.. I am soooo wasted…”

“What if we did a movie with Tom Cruise?”

“I think we already did that…”

“No, no – like, we do something with -Tom Cruise-!”

“I think that’s what you already said.”

“We could just, like, have him fall out of plane!”

“It’s been done.”

“No, no – he’ll fall out of plane – and live!”

“Again, Pretty sure it’s been done.”

“What if we make him… the undead slave of a mystical monster?”

“..this might be the cocaine talking, BUT THAT’S BRILLIANT!”

Run away… When a ‘blockbuster movie’ goes straight to ‘free on demand’, run away…

Official Description: Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
