After days of filming, finally the first image from the set of "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" has surfaced online which sure will delight fans of the "Mummy" franchise who cannot wait to learn more about the project.
Posted by director Rob Cohen on his official blog, the photo, as seen above left, was taken from the mausoleum set for the flick by still photographer Jasin Boland. So artistic is the picture that Cohen even suggested it could make for "a cool wallpaper background on your computer."
The follow-up to 2001's "The Mummy Returns", "Dragon Emperor" brings back Brendan Fraser as Rick O'Connell with Maria Bello replacing Rachel Weisz to play his wife, Evelyn Carnahan-O'Connell. Pic, set to open August 1, 2008, was recently shot in crew's re-creation of the Tomb of Xi'an where the Terracotta Warriors were discovered in 1974.
