The Mummy takes place in 1920s Egypt, focusing on the adventures of Rick O'Connell as he investigates an ancient city that holds a dark secret that could prove devastating for the entire world. Rick joins forces with two Egyptologists who have come into possession of a mysterious ancient box they believe to be a key to the secrets of the city and its history. While navigating through the ruins, the three stumbled upon the burial place of Imhotep, an ancient high priest who was buried alive for his love affair with the mistress of then-reigning Pharaoh. As events unfold, Imhotep is resurrected through the power of the Book of the Dead, and he proceeds to take his revenge on the ones that imprisoned and condemned him to death and bring back his beloved, unleashing the fabled plagues of Egypt upon the world in the process. It becomes a fight for the survival of the adventurers, and a struggle to save the world from this destructive supernatural threat.

movie facts

The Mummy takes its inspiration from the original film of the same name, also from Universal Pictures, but also from classic adventure films like the Indiana Jones series. With a fun take on the time period in which it is set, and based in ancient Egyptian archaeology and mythos, the movie blends horror elements of the original film, with the roguish charm of its lead character and plenty of action and adventure. The film was a success in the genre and went on to spawn two direct sequels, as well as a spectacularly unsuccessful remake and reimagining of the same name in 2017, starring Tom Cruise.
