Mummy Goes for a Ride
“The Mummy” with Brendan Fraser is already a certified hit, with a domestic gross approaching $160 million. Now comes word that its studio, Universal, is further capitalizing on the movie’s popularity by turning it into an attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. Stephen Sommers, who wrote and directed the movie, has also directed the development of “The Mummy Maze.” It will be featured as part of the theme park’s “Halloween Horror Nights III,” an interactive haunted house. The presentation will feature original props from the movie. Sommers is also working on a movie sequel.
- Speaking of Brendan Fraser, look for a lot of movie critics to call his new movie “Dudley Do-Wrong” when it opens tomorrow. Advance word is that “Dudley Do-Right” is a dud.
