The time is never too early to plan ahead for a movie that might interest us. On August 1, 2008, a year from today, Mummy 3 opens.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is to be directed by Rob Cohen (also directed Stealth, XXX, The Skulls, and Dragonheart).
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor has a plot set in ancient China and follows the background of the film’s villain, China’s first emperor Qin Shi Huang (played by Jet Li). The film will move forward to a post-World War II setting where regulars characters Rick and Alex head to the forbidden tombs of China. In the Himalayas they discover a mummy that can change forms due to a female wizard’s (Michelle Yeoh) curse.
One side cryptid adventure in the movie is a battle between the Emperor and an army of big snarling Yeti. The beasts come into the fight and turn the tide in favor of the forces of good, for awhile.
In the next few years, Yeti may form have a more “starring” role in motion pictures, and this army of Yeti may be a hint of things to come.
