by | May 16, 2008 | Comments

Brendan Fraser, Maria Bello, Jet Li, and a whole mess o’ undead terra cotta soldiers are headed for a theater near you…and Universal has just unveiled your first extended glimpse of all the action!

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is opening August 1, and the first teaser hit the Web today, offering just under two minutes of wisecracking big-budget action from the Far East. What’s that you say? You have no idea what the plot is, and you’re dying to find out? Well, just sit back and let Universal tell you all about it:

Brendan Fraser returns as explorer Rick O’Connell to combat the resurrected Han Emperor (Jet Li) in an epic that races from the catacombs of ancient China high into the frigid Himalayas. Rick is joined in this all-new adventure by son Alex (newcomer Luke Ford), wife Evelyn (Maria Bello) and her brother, Jonathan (John Hannah). And this time, the O’Connells must stop a mummy awoken from a 2,000-year-old curse who threatens to plunge the world into his merciless, unending service.

Doomed by a double-crossing sorceress (Michelle Yeoh) to spend eternity in suspended animation, China’s ruthless Dragon Emperor and his 10,000 warriors have laid forgotten for eons, entombed in clay as a vast, silent terra cotta army. But when dashing adventurer Alex O’Connell is tricked into awakening the ruler from eternal slumber, the reckless young archaeologist must seek the help of the only people who know more than he does about taking down the undead: his parents.

As the monarch roars back to life, our heroes find his quest for world domination has only intensified over the millennia. Striding the Far East with unimaginable supernatural powers, the Emperor Mummy will rouse his legion as an unstoppable, otherworldly force…unless the O’Connells can stop him first.

But wait, there’s more — director Rob Cohen has just “enhanced” his production blog, so after you watch the new teaser (link below) and feel yourself fill with a burning desire to learn more about all things Dragon Emperor-related, you can just mosey on over to RobCohentheMummy.com (link also below). How thoughtful!
