Why Brendan Fraser Didn’t Show Up in The Mummy Reboot


BY Joe Reid This witch of “Oz” has been balancing the commercial and creative in her career for quite some time. For a movie star who has made their mark, the “One for Me, One for Them” stratagem is a good way of maintaining one’s career path. By taking “one for them,” i. This week, with Oz the Great and Powerful dominating the moviehouses, we’re taking a look at one of its more prolific stars, Rachel Weisz, who has been balancing creative and commercial for quite some time now. Weisz began her career already well into trade-off mode. Neither one of them shot her into the stratosphere, but she was able to make her mark in both popular and artsy spheres. THEM – In , Weisz got her big break on the popular side of things when she was cast as the female lead in The Mummy. Now that Weisz was something of a name, she could start lending that name to more interesting projects all due respect, Brendan Fraser.

Rumored for years to enjoy the company of younger men. Difficult to work with. Linked with Ginger Rogers. Nice guy, but has a taste for loose women in bars. But then, who among us does not? Linked with failed marriage to and merkin for Helen Hunt.

In the s, a group of archaeologists led by adventurer Rick O’Connell (Brendan Fraser) discovers the mummified body of Imhotep, an Egyptian priest who was cursed for falling in .

While interconnected cinematic universes are popping up left and right nowadays, perhaps the first ever of note dates back to the s, in the form of the Universal classic monsters. Sure, the initial films concerning Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, etc. Beginning with the newly released Tom Cruise-fronted The Mummy, Universal is trying to reinvent its monster universe for the modern age, christening it the Dark Universe at least assuming Warner Bros.

Of course, Alex Kurtzman’s film is not the first time Universal has attempted to reboot The Mummy franchise for contemporary audiences. The first attempt took place back in , starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz. Two sequels followed, one in and the other in While Universal’s new Mummy has no direct narrative connections to Fraser’s Mummy series, an interesting Easter egg reference has been uncovered that suggests that both stories might actually take place in the same universe.

This tome is given a quick close-up shot later, and is revealed to be the book of Amun Ra, which Fraser and Weisz’ characters use to defeat Imhotep in the Mummy film. While it seems unlikely that both stories could conceivably take place in the same world — especially with the main characters in Cruise’s film somehow being unaware of such a similar past event — one could argue that since the Fraser film was set in the s and the film is set in present day that Rick O’Connell and Evie’s battle with Imhotep simply managed to fade into nothing more than myth and legend itself in the nearly years between timelines.

Either way, it’s a fun nod to a successful movie that sometimes gets unfairly forgotten.

McAdams was 25 years old when she was cast as the mean high school queen bee Regina George, and she modelled her character on Alec Baldwin ‘s performance in the drama Glengarry Glen Ross And so I kind of learned that lesson from watching her. She played Allie Hamilton, a wealthy southern belle who has a forbidden love affair with Gosling’s poor labourer, Noah Calhoun. McAdams played the daughter of an influential politician, who is caught in a love triangle with Wilson and Cooper’s characters.

Craven has said McAdams was the only actress he considered for the part.

The most visually rich part of the film was the opening scenes set in Ancient Egypt. I would love to see an entire film built around that. The sets and costumes were brilliant. The Mummy comes back to life Especially tantalizing is the strictly painted-on attire of Patricia Velazquez as Anck-Su-Namum; what a stunning visual; but it completely upstages her performance. I have heard people talking about it. Some have mistakenly guessed her top was a mesh costume of some sort; not true, it is entirely – and only – paint.

But Velazquez isn’t the only thing to turn heads in the film, Rachel Weisz is appropriately attractive, though not as startling; her character is as solid and believable as she is lovely. The newcomer, Oded Fehr as Ardeth Bey, set quite a few female hearts aflutter; in our party, at least. The internet was lit-up searching for more photos of this guy.

At first, I didn’t particularly care for Brendan Fraser as the primary character he’s too well kept and cutesy for a rugged guy-type for me , but he grows on you. He seems to be developing into a versatile actor who will be around for a long time.
