EW Review - 'The Mummy'


Intellectual property is king right now in Hollywood. Every studio is looking to raid its back catalog (or the back catalog of someone else it can cut a deal with) in the hopes of dusting off some old, mothballed properties it has the rights to and turn them into 21st-century annuities. Disney has been lucky with Marvel and its deep bench of superheroes, and Warner Bros., after some pretty rough creative hiccups, has hit paydirt with DC — especially in the wake of Wonder Woman. For better or worse, this is what drives the business now. The past is the future.

The story is too old to be commented.
