: Just so you know the mummy is a remake of a clasic horro movie with Boris Carloff as the mummy. I'm sure that they will barrow some ideas from Indy to make it look good, but the mummy movie consept was well before Indy. Just thought you would like to know.
Thanks Ben. I very well aware of that. The mummy has been done almost as many times as Frankenstein and Dracula. The Mummy done in the Peter Cushing version had elements of the archeological find, but based it's time period in the late 1890's , rather than Karloff's 1920's period as recognised by the references to the King Tut discovery. I said it would be a hoot to see how it would work this time, because from what I saw of Entertainment Tonight, it falls somewhere between the first two version's time periods. I'll be interested in how they can possibly retell this old chestnut. Regards. Michaelson
