1999’s The Mummy Starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz Is Heading Back to Theaters!


Are you, like me, a huge fan of 1999’s The Mummy starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz? If so, I’ve got fantastic fucking news for you: The film is headed back to theaters this month to commemorate its twenty-fifth anniversary.

That’s right folks, starting Friday, April 26 (well, the evening of Thursday, April 25 actually, because that’s how things work these days) you can get a big ol’ bucket of popcorn, settle into a cinema near you, and see Fraser and Weisz dominate the big screen and dazzle your bisexual proclivities.

It looks like it’s playing in theaters across America, including AMC, Cinemark, and Alamo locations. At the AMC near me in southern California, I can buy a ticket for a measly five dollars. Five dollars! That’s less than the cost of a coffee these days—quite the deal to give yourself just over two hours of unmitigated joy.

If you haven’t been blessed to see 1999’s The Mummy before, the film follows the adventurer Rick O’Connell (Fraser) as he pairs up with a librarian named Evie (Weisz) and her brother Jonathan (John Hannah) to uncover the treasures buried at Hamunaptra, an ancient Egyptian city of the dead. They inadvertently wake up a sexy mummy named Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) and fight to stay alive as he hunts down all who awakened him. It is, in short, the best movie ever, and Universal Pictures knows it.

“Over the past twenty-five years, The Mummy has become a cornerstone of adventure cinema and has set the bar high for blockbuster entertainment,” Jim Orr, president of domestic theatrical distribution for Universal Pictures, said in a statement. “As we celebrate its twenty-fifth 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.”
