‘The Mummy’ Starring Brendan Fraser Returning to Theaters


Millenials rejoice, the 1999 cinematic masterpiece The Mummy is returning to theaters for its 25th anniversary.

Beginning on April 26, fans can experience the timeless classic starring Oscar winners Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz, along with John Hannah and Arnold Vosloo, in the theaters once again. The film was a hit at its debut, making over $40 million domestically in its opening weekend, and it remained one of the year’s top-grossing films. Two sequels and a spin-off film followed its success.

The Mummy follows the story of American adventurer Rick O’Connell (Fraser) as he leads an expedition to Hamunaptra, the legendary city of the dead. There, alongside Egyptologist Evelyn Carnahan (Weisz) and her brother Jonathan (Hannah), he unwittingly awakens Imhotep (Vosloo), an ancient Egyptian priest cursed to suffer eternal damnation. Imhotep seeks to resurrect his lost love, and the team must race against time to stop him before he unleashes unspeakable horrors on the world.

“Over the past twenty-five years, The Mummy has become a cornerstone of adventure cinema and has set the bar high for blockbuster entertainment,” said Jim Orr, president of domestic theatrical distribution for Universal Pictures. “As we celebrate its 25th anniversary, we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring it back to the big screen. It’s a fantastic opportunity for both devoted fans and newcomers to immerse themselves in the exhilarating adventure and timeless story that made The Mummy an unforgettable cinematic experience.”

Tickets are on sale now at Fandango and other online retailers.
