Obviously I haven’t been paying attention. The trailer for the third Brendan Frazer Mummy movie, Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, has taken me by surprise. Not only does the film have Rob Cohen as director, but it’s also got Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh, living “terracotta” armies, yetis… and King Ghidorah. Okay, it’s probably not King Ghidorah (Toho would hardly approve), but it sure looks like him!
or this earlier version, known as Ghidrah:
[Yes, I know that Ghidorah’s general appearance was modeled on the Chinese dragon and so the connection is hardly surprising. Still, how often did the traditional dragon have three heads?]
Here’s the Mummy 3 trailer:
No Rachel Weisz though. Pity.
