August 1st is fast approaching and so is the release date of the next Mummy movie, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.
The promotion begins with the release of the America is the teaser poster. This looks really good and Rob will be happy to know that it does stimulates my imagination.
On Wednesday at midnight they relaunched the production site design adding new photos, set designs and conceptual art drawings. The site looks nice and... wait for it... it's not flash intensive! Lets Dance! Yea! Yes folks, the site loads fast since it's not all flash intensive so you can not only enjoy the content of The Mummy site but you can also enjoy the experience of visiting it.
Rob also lets us know that:
Starting May 27th I go to London to record Randy's score with the including traditional Chinese instruments, traditional Tibetan instruments, a choir, Buddhist monk chanters, and koto drum percussion.
That is awosme, I really like that they will go for a sound that will really enhance the movie experience.
Well, now I'm getting excited about The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor. Next I want to see a trailer which they are working on and soon we should hear about the debut of it.
The story of The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor: The ruthless Dragon Emperor (Jet Li) and his 10,000 warriors are double crossed by a sorceress (Michelle Yeoh). Trapped in suspended animation and forgotten for eons until Alex O'Connell (Luke Ford) gets tricked into awakening them. Alex then turns to the only people who knows a lot about stopping the undead: his father Rick O'Connell's (Brendan Fraser), mother Evelyn (Maria Bello) and Evelyn's brother Jonathan (John Hannah).
Rick must combat the resurrected Han Emperor to stop his quest for world domination. As they engage in a race from the catacombs of ancient china into the frigid Himalayas.
