things that will suck: the mummy: tomb of the dragon emperor


As we've mentioned here before Jet Li is starring as the villain ("the Dragon Emperor") in the third Mummy film, which takes place in the mysterious land of Asia. This one has something to do with China's famed terra cotta warriors. Ooh. The movie also stars Michelle Yeoh. Call me a skeptic, but I'm not really hoping for the best with this one, as it will likely feature white hero Brendan Fraser busting through China and unlocking all sorts of ancient Chinese secrets and unimaginable supernatural powers and mystical Oriental stuff. And that's just not cool. We need to protect our Ancient Chinese Secrets! Now, everyone will know. Bummer. Anyway, director Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious, xXx), has been keeping a blog during production of The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Like I said, it doesn't offer much to look forward to next summer.
