View Full Version : Universal should reboot THE MUMMY...

As a huge fan of Universal's classic monsters, I hope I'm not alone in hoping that Universal decides to reboot the series after this third installment.

Stephen Sommer's first MUMMY was good; I'm not gonna lie. Sure it was a special-effects-filled extravaganza that owed more to RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK than to Boris Karloff, but while having one foot firmly in the adventure-comedy genre, it still had its other foot in the horror one. Despite being PG-13, the deaths were pretty gruesome, and Imhotep's regenerating was right out of HELLRAISER. However, what little ties to horror the 1999 film had, were all but gone with its sequel (Spider-Man mummies? A half Rock, half scorpion, all CGI monstrosity? COME ON!)

The trailer for the third one, places the series completely in the summer, CGI-filled action genre. Don't get me wrong; I'm gonna see it to have fun with a funny adventure flick, but I remember when going to a film with "THE MUMMY" in the title meant something seeing something creepy and horrific. Even the poster promises a horror flick, which is OBVIOUSLY not the case.

So am I the only one who would like to see a return to gothic horror in the fourth film? It should follow the Hammer route and be a remake of Universal's own Kharis series. Without Kharis, there would be no Jason Voorhees, or Michael Myers. He was the original souless, bullet-proof, shambling serial killer. They could either set the film in the Victorian era (like the new WOLF MAN,) where it would be a completely new reboot, or set it in the late 1940's, so O'Connell could make an appearance and it would retain somewhat of the pulpier feel of the first three films. It could be dark and gritty, but still maintain a PG-13 rating to keep its audience (Though an R-rating would be nice.) For THE MUMMY 4, I want to see a new and improved Kharis crushing skulls and breaking necks, rather than another ancient sorcerer controlling a CGI army, or a sandstorm with a face.

Am I alone here?

No...im sure there are many others who want the same...but me? Heck no. I want MORE Imhotep. He's such an awesome character, love his evilness. Toilet Paper mummys never intrested me....

I'd like a new Mummy film, that's more horror orientated. Don't know if a total reboot would work, so soon after the third film. Look at The Incredible Hulk, most people think that's a sequel too. But something more like the first one would be fine by me.

I don't think the series needs a reboot... but they should have an actual Mummy movie at some point as opposed to whatever these are. I've never really considered these to be related to the Karloff and Hammer films, were they supposed to be?

I really like this series the first one was quite fun to watch. Heck, I pretty much watch it anytime its on cable and have most of the lines memorized. The second one was alright but would loved it they did the Rock character differently thats what killed it for me. I was all in until I saw he was half man/scorpion. This one looks to be good which is all I ask for with films like this.

:rotfl:rotfl Same thing. When it's on TNT HD, I always seem to watch it. As for The Mummy Returns, I don't know why they didn't just put the rock out there as a human and fight (maybe they couldn't get him timewise...?).

With the new one, with Jet Li, we are guarenteed some good action at least.

I think, while Steve Sommer's third Mummy is just about to come out, and since they've been cheezy popcorn rompy successes, they'll probably just let him continue.

I'd love to see more HORROR than adventure with another Mummy movie...

I watched it again last night on Starz HD. Its like a sickness. :lol That would be my guess because the whole CGI thing there just look odd.

The thing that always bothered me about The Mummy Returns is the part of Evelyn. In the first one she is this clumsy librarian who desperately wants to be an archaeologist. In the second one long gone is the cute lovable character and we get this reincarnated warrior princess which just didn't sit right with me.

The original Mummuy is a classic and a horror film, although the new Mummy films are 'good' entertainment I feel the two are totally different films. But I think its still hard to make a classic over and make it better.

Jon Spaihts is writing with Alex Kurtzman to direct.

There are talks with Sofia Boutella (Gazelle from "Kingsman") to play the title character.
Yes, Imhotep is a woman now. And yes, they still want to make a crossover film franchise with all new universal monsters.

The WWitch is more like subtle scare. It's not likely that we'll get the same type of treatment for this one; not likely with Tom Cruise. Hopefully they don't have too much action and do cgi well. And they do character development like her history and how she thinks. We'll see when the movie comes out or at least when more trailer comes out. The cultural artwork is already nice so far.

I've always been more of a Frankenstein's monster fan, so I could care less about Dracula and the Mummy. Give me a classic looking Frankie with a flat head and wearing a sports jacket, and I'll be happy.

This film looks more like a typical Tom Cruise action/adventure film, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

That's what I would hope for with all the Universal Monster reboots. Make it darker, give it a smart script, the cinematography should be memorable, and actors/actresses that can deliver without using familiar faces that we will associate with their previous roles.
With this current Mummy trailer, all I saw was Ethan Hunt getting thrown around a plane falling out of the sky. :(

The 99 Mummy and "Van Helsing" are great.

This film so far looks like a terribly clishe story with an awfully serious tone full of inappropriate action scenes.

Eh, pretty decent trailer. Not cinema-worthy, but a definite watch at home. I liked Dracula Untold (maybe it had to do with the fact that it was essentially a guy from the Balkans ****ing some Ottoman **** up), so even if it does end up being part of this universe, I won't mind. As for Victor Frankenstein, it has no relation to these films, but I thought it was decent enough. It ended abruptly, and the monster was kinda lame, but eh, it was enjoyable for a late night watch.

Most people only remember Brendan Fraser's Mummy and I just shake my head at them. 1932 is the true grail. If you haven't seen the film you should check it out its one of my favorites. Yeah this looks to be another action looking version like the 1999 film but looks interesting and excited over it. It's got a different element and when Cruise and Crowe are in the film it should be a decent flick. I'm a Tom Cruise fan so I dont mind the casting there. I'm glad to see the classics come back in a whole new way I don't mind change as long as it's good. The 1999 remake was alright but not the best in some aspects well better then it's sequels and scorpion king spin off's.

Universal already said that if a monster movie bombs (Wolfman-Dracula-Frankenstein) it's automatically disqualified from any universe building.

This movie bombs, Cruise or not, their universe building goes back to the drawing board.

That was uh, always, uh... part of the plan, yeah! Either way, when they introduce their new Dracula, I do hope they make him more historically accurate, spikes, beheadings and Ottoman issues included.

Yes, that would be great...

Yes to all that. He was a very interesting person to read about, and even if you took out the vampire part completely, his life would still make a good movie. I give props to Untold for not really shying away from the whole Ottoman thing and going there. It wasn't that well executed, as they made Vlad too sympathetic, but I liked the fact that they at least tried to tackle it.

The goal shouldn't be to portray him as a goody two-shoes who did everything for good reasons, but as mostly a messed up man. Sure, he did some good stuff for Romania and the Balkans by extension, but he wasn't a sob-story case, even though he did have his reasons for turning out that way.

It reminds me of scene in Captain Britain & MI-13, where Doom and Dracula are on the moon, plotting, and Dracula, due to his experiences in the Middle East goes all "when I'm ruler of Britain and such and such, I shall exterminate the Muslims, and it's gonna be great" and Doom is all "nonsense you racist arsehole" and then he talks about having splinters of the true cross in his armour... Ah, good ol' comic books...

Mummy Ghost Protocol?

Universal already said that if a monster movie bombs (Wolfman-Dracula-Frankenstein) it's automatically disqualified from any universe building.

This movie bombs, Cruise or not, their universe building goes back to the drawing board.

Just because a movie is older/original does it automatically make it better then anything that came after.

While I love the original The Thing (especially the quick quirky dialogue and ufo ice scene), the 1982 version is the superior version.

Old Universal did have movies that were weaker than others.

Hell, i'll take Hammer/Oliver Reed "Curse of the Werewolf" over Universal/Chaney "Wolfman" any day of the week.

Thats how i feel.

The mummy is like a good drama. It doesnt even have too much suspense.

Ill agree with u guys that the mummy might be the best made movie or the one with the best acting ( i dont remember much) ill take both of you guys word and the mummy might be the greatest universal movie of that era.

But it doesnt have iconic "mummy" things. Like just barely at the beginning.

As goofy as the 90s movie is at least it does take you into the world of the mummy and visually it truly is a mummy movie. The diallogue is goofy and the cgi might not be the greatest but it is a true egypt mummy curse movie.

The old one is a drama film that just happens to have a mummy in it.
A mummy that becomes a normal person early in the film. Thats all

What sets The Mummy apart from the other classics is yes the drama aspect and the storytelling. The acting itself is incredible with Karloff as the lead role. It just has that creepy vibe at times and may not be full horror but neither is the 90's version which is just a bunch of action with a really poorly done cg mummy. Yes not all the originals are the better films but in my eyes The Mummy 1932 holds up as its own. To each as its own. I'm just looking forward to seeing a new take on the classics and hopefully more to come if this does decent. I know most don't look back at the classics or think it's **** for its age. Honestly I'd like anyone in this thread to go check it out. Go check the film out it may surprise you yes the thing remake by carpenter is superior but I still like the old classic film. For wolf movies I'd still take Jr as the wolf man but I'm not a big Lon Chaney Jr fan like most I'm more Karloff and Bela. Not trying to start a war which film is better we each have our opinions and I respect yours Crow and Jye. Riddick you have chosen wisely.

Well, his acting abilities tend to be unbroken at best. He is the quintessential man you hire just for the sole purpose of allocation. He his stiff, contrived, and a smorgasbord of other actors. He's not particularly uncommon of an actor. You could replace him with any other performer in any movie that he has ever been in and it would still leave the same speck of feces on your eyes that all of his movies will leave you. He not special in any sense of the meaning, rather, he came at the right time in the movie making spectrum. He was nothing special, but nothing bad. Dead center middle of the road bloke. Simply put, he is one big fudge brownie of an actor.

Well that's kind of the problem with those movies. All style. No substance. They are just there to say, "Hey! Look at what late 90's special effects can do!" And that's it. It doesn't do anything new, it doesn't attempt to do anything new. It's just stale and bland and typical...like Brendan Fraser. He honestly did fit the movie very well!

Enjoying 90's Mummy in no way cancels out the respect Karloff has earned for his career plus his awesome looking mummy.

Universal/Hammer will always be known for their classic monster movies, nothing will take that prestige away.

I enjoyed the directors cut of the Wolfman reboot but it wasn't popular enough to carry it forward.

Lets see what this new Mummy brings to the table.

This thread made me realize that I've had "Dracula Untold" sitting on my DVR for several months so I finally went ahead and watched it. I found it to be a fun diversion. With both the production design and casting of Luke Evans it definitely aspired to be a "Vampire in Middle-Earth" movie which admittedly made it easier for me to forgive its obvious shortcomings.

Definitely wouldn't ever need to see a sequel though.

I'm just realizing that I'm much more interested in films that establish dread well before the monster is fully revealed which was a hallmark of classic horror and the antithesis of almost anything post-2000 in cinema (save Jackson's excellent Kong remake.)

But now that we have a wave of films like Krampus, The VVitch, 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Shallows that really take their time in setting the stage before sparing and selective monster reveals I feel less of an urge to see these crossover popcorn CG monster spectacles. I know I'm in the minority and that Tom Cruise's new flick will almost certainly gross more than the four films I just mentioned *combined* but still, those are were my preferences are at this point.

Honestly, I didn't think the movie was the worst thing I've ever seen. I watch tons of movies though. It's absolutely not any worse than the last two (and next) Transformer movies were (will be.) Really, although I feel like they are sitting on some money making properties with the Universal Monsters, I don't know, and I feel like Universal doesn't know how to approach it.

My thought was, why not just bring each of the original films back for a new release in the theaters? I would love to see ALL the Frankenstein films, Drac, Wolfman et al. in their original glory on the big screen! It requires probably a minimal investment from Universal, gets the younger crowd schooled on the origins of the horror genre and will without a doubt make some money without having to worry about covering a 200 million budget.

I liked it. Not sure why its getting as torn up as it is. Its not a perfect film by any means, but its exactly what the trailers advertised it to be. I do feel this film set up the Dark Universe more than anything. And the Dark Universe looks promising, even if this 'first' film wasn't Iron Man good. It was better than the Frasier Mummies anyway.

I think with this struggling, they'd be wise to throw Dracula Untold back into the canon and be that much further along with the culmination of the monsters. I guess it all depends on what their vision of Dracula is in this universe. If they keep Dracula Untold, he's kinda be a good guy and join Jekyll's gang and they would be facing Tywin as the main villain of the franchise. If they keep it out, he could be a BIG bad monster that could assemble the Monsters together.

This film made it clear that they are going to have to have some monsters on their side, so I'd think Frankenstein would be on the good side rather than the bad. I could see the Invisible Man playing both sides. Wolfman would probably be similar to Dr. Jekyll with fighting inner demons, but being on the good side while at least being Talbot. Got to imagine Creature is bad as would the Phantom. Again, Dracula could easily go either way. I'd love to see the Bride of Frankenstein on the bad side to give Frankenstein some personal stake in the fight. Maybe even throw Dr. Frankenstein in there for good measure. There is a LOT of potential here IMO and I'd hate to see this new universe die before it even gets a chance to grow. The Mummy certainly isn't the biggest name monster they could have started with and they shouldn't let the whole universe lie in the hands of this one film.

Well, I love Frasier Mummy 1 and 2 is all right - IMO #3 is terrible. They were cheeky fun with an IMO great cast - a romp - some great design as well - I happily watch them and own 1 and 2.

Wasn't happy at the idea of a re-boot and w. Tom Cruise yet. (TC is talented but am still PO'd about the hubris of playing Jack Reacher e.g. character repeatedly described in the books as a "mountain of a guy" and IMO TC - who owned the rights - could have made a stellar job of those films by searching out the right actor and introducing some new icon - but noooooooo, TC had to put himself front and center. Wasn't the IM success enough?)

Fast-forward to the Mummy - well, OK, a reboot, but I thought re this release it'd be true horror for the most part. E.g., a different treatment than the Fraser Mummy. Then I read/hear it's pretty uneven; the contrast of humor/horror isn't working here (tho it does for a lot of films) and most of all it doesn't even fall into the guilty pleasure category. That it's just bad, pretty much. So altogether for me that puts it into the "catch on cable" file. I'll watch it, but not gonna make the effort to get to a theater for it. Like I was glad I didn't see Dracula Untold in a theater because IMO it wouldn't have been worth it, tho it isn't the worst film I ever saw.

Saw it over the weekend. I'm not sure if they knew what kind of a movie they were making -- a comedy, adventure, or horror. The narrative was all over the place. The editing was disjointed. The pacing was uneven. The jump scares either showed up in the trailers or were telegraphed from a mile away. Russell Crowe does not make a good Dr. Jekyll (who was supposed to be nebbishy, withdrawn and repressed, which is why he became addicted to the Hyde persona). The female lead was generic and could have been played by 100 different actresses. I absolutely hated the sidekick/comic relief character who a complete ripoff of the Jack character from American Werewolf in London. But the biggest problem was Tom Cruise. He was woefully miscast as the scoundrel/soldier/fortune hunter/womanizer with a conscience. The only thing Cruise brought to the role was his name. I'm sure Universal felt they needed him to get it made, and he probably wants to be part of something akin to the MCU, but this just didn't work for me.

On the positive side, the movie was watchable and moved along. The gender change for the mummy worked and Sophia Boutella is gorgeous and drop dead sexy. The idea of a Dark Universe is good, but Universal needs to execute. I'd give it a 6/10. Not terrible, but not great, just somewhere safely in the middle.

That was one of the problems I think people had with the recent Baywatch and Chips movies, they were made into comedies when the shows themselves were not.

Abbott and Costello worked, but Universal should make these straight up horror movies with some adventure in them. Then again beyond the house of horrors the originals gave us, not sure what a modern monster team-up of these characters is supposed to do. Are these monsters supposed to fight against the humans or against some other force?

Can't wait to see Bride of Frankenstein switch sides when they all clash at the airport. I've been proven wrong before but it seems so goofy to be going full "Team Dracula/Team Jekyll - which side are you on?" with what were once respected horror icons. I guess there's precedent with League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and the Jackman Van Helsing but I always saw those films as examples of what not to do.

I think Fraser's Mummy and Mummy II were more watchable than this Mummy. I've been a fan of Cruise in most of his movies -- Risky Business, Top Gun, Born on the Fourth of July, Interview with the Vampire, Vanilla Sky, Mission Impossible, Oblivion, and so on. But he was simply not the right choice for this role, and I think his casting ended up doing much more harm than good. Sort of along the lines of how Jennifer Lawrence is hurting the X-Men franchise. Replace Cruise with maybe someone like Matt Bomer, Alex Perryfer, or Luke Evans (yes I know he was Dracula), and it both opens up the storytelling options and saves a bucketload of cash. However since Cruise was probably one of the producers there might not have been much of a choice. But good grief.

I'd say Patricia and Sofia are a tossup. Both are incredibly hot. I agree the makeup effects in the first Mummy were better. This one was a cross between Lifeforce and Hellraiser. In fact there were a number of things in this movie that felt "borrowed" from other flicks.

I would say the Universal Dark Universe has stumbled out of the gate. The movie is tanking in the US, although Global box office will probably salvage it. We'll see where things go, but safe to say Marvel and DC aren't feeling any heat.

In two years, along with the next Batman reboot.

In fact, maybe they should do: Batman vs the Mummy.
Batman Vs. the Mummy? Batman is the mother ****ing Mummy! That's the route they should have used for the reboot all along!
