Back in late June, media has been buzzing that NBC Universal are going to compile a video promoting "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" and the 2008 Summer Olympic because the two are taking place in the same location, China. Now, the twisted footage has come out and it provides an awesome effect connecting the two unrelated events.
Displaying several "Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" scenes that have never been unveiled before, the spot combines the action sequences of the Rob Cohen-directed movie with footages from the previous Olympic games. The running terracotta army bursts out to be Olympic runners racing to the finish line, the fist-to-fist fighting sequence between Rick O'Connell and the resurrected Han emperor turns to be a boxing match and a shot where Michelle Yeoh's character back-flip to avoid stabbing changes into a graceful gymnast on a balance beam.
While the Olympic won't begin until August 8, the third "Mummy" movie will be hitting the theaters a week earlier on August 1. The Universal Pictures' film tells the story where Rick O'Connell is once again faced with a resurrected mummy. Yet, unlike in the first two movies, O'Connell will be dealing with a more blood-thirsty and more determined mummy in this film. The movie stars Brendan Fraser, Maria Bello, Jet Li, Luke Ford, Michelle Yeoh and John Hannah.
