Cool. I like the franchise. I wouldn't mind seeing another with the same cast though.

A re-boot? What was so wrong with the original that it needs a re-boot? Oh that's right NOTHING. Hollywood just being lazy and running out of ideas.

Mummy movies are as old as movies themselves.

I really liked the first couple of Mummy Films. The third one wasn't that great, but I always kind of liked the franchise. Hopefully this one will turn out to be decent.

len wiseman is the director of underworld as i remember, a franchise that started out good and became a tired routine as time goes. i would expect the same if he will indeed reboot the mummy franchise. leave the old version alone or better yet try to make a remake instead of a reboot

isnt that the same thing though? i mean its still redoing everything or telling the story in a different way

aDDicteD1487d ago (Edited 1487d ago )

nope it's different. A reboot is when you're dealing with an ongoing series that doesn't want to acknowledge any of its previous incarnations. while a remake is taking basically the exact same story and doing it again with some few changes and added scenes.

ah ok i just thought of a certain game series while reading what you said and started making a bit of sense to my self, thanks for the definition then

DarkBlood1488d ago

personally it doesnt matter to me either way i like the old one and i like the idea of what the reboot will be

this isnt something i can just make a decision on so easly so needless to say i'll just throwa big piece of meat on the ground and let 2 lions fight over it to see who comes out on top
