^ Yeah, kind of sucks. Guess she's too good for Mummy now that she's won an Oscar.
But Maria Bello isn't bad.
From what I've read, the official line from Weisz is that she didn't want to spend several months filming a movie overseas as she has a young child. The rumour is, that she actually bowed out due to the script being bad.
I recently watched the first two Mummy films. Fun action films, but utterly forgettable five minutes after you've watched them. This one looks to be more of the same.
I enjoyed the first 2 but am having trouble seeing past the re-cast of Evie on this one. That was part of the charm for me....the chemistry between BF and RW. I know I'll watch it, but not until it comes out on DVD.
This movie looks pretty interesting. If any of you are interested, the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana (only 5 or so miles from Disneyland) has the Chinese terra cotta soldiers on display until October. It would be interesting to see these first -- or after -- and then seeing the movie.
Here is a link to their website for more information...
