Brendan Fraser became an action star in The Mummy.
Universal has announced the 4K HDR release of 1999’s The Mummy. The film starred Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, Arnold Vosloo, John Hannah, and Kevin J. O’Connor. It would spawn two The Mummy sequels and spin-offs. Below is a 4K HDR clip from the movie featuring Evelyn, played by Rachel Weisz. She reads from the Book of the Dead out loud and unintentionally awakens Imhotep. This causes all hell to break loose and prompts the group to run inside for their lives. While inside, Rick, played by Brendan Fraser, Evelyn, and others, comes across Imhotep but can escape him. Fraser, whose earliest role was Encino Man, will star in the upcoming film, The Whale.
Deep in the Egyptian desert, a handful of people searching for a long-lost treasure have just unearthed a 3,000-year-old legacy of terror. Combining the thrills of a rousing adventure with the suspense of Universal’s legendary 1932 horror classic, The Mummy, starring Brendan Fraser, is a true nonstop action epic filled with dazzling visual effects, top-notch talent, and superb storytelling.
