PopWatch Pulse Check: Who wants to see 'The Mummy'?
Brendan Fraser’s Mummy tops EW.com’s list of the 14 movie franchises we think should stop. But do you agree?
My colleague Marc Vera, based in Rochester, says that every time he’s seen the trailer for The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor in theaters, the audience has seem psyched for the film. Gary Susman says that while he doesn’t care about this creaky franchise, he could be talked into seeing anything with Jet Li and/or Michelle Yeoh (pictured), both new additions in the third film. And our Box Office Preview estimates that it will open at No. 1, with a $51 million weekend, despite a nasty reception from critics. (Read Owen Gleiberman’s grade-C review.)
Are you ready for The Mummy franchise to end, or do you think it’s getting a bad rap? (I’m neutral. I didn’t need a third film, but I don’t begrudge them for making it.)
