I concur. The sets look good too. I hope the movie isn't as over the top as The Mummy Returns.

Rob Cohen, director of the upcoming sequel "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor," told SCI FI Wire that the low-key marketing of the film will ramp up with the release of the first trailer in June - but not a moment sooner.

"The trailers that Universal cut have a lot of the most complicated visual effects, and there is so much more in the movie," said Cohen. "But this is something they want to focus on, and I don't want it out before those effects are finished."

Despite the film's fast-approaching August 1st release date, Cohen said he isn't concerned that the film is still off the summer radar. "We have an audience that knows the name, and we're not trying to create audience recognition from ground zero. I think if we have a solid couple of months to advertise, no one will miss it. [Audiences] will have made up their minds, but I don't want them to make up their minds on incomplete work."

Talking about the third installment in the franchise, Cohen said: "The whole approach is different. The sets are bigger, and they are less digital. It builds on the legacy, but it's a very different movie."



Indy 4 marketing campaign rip-off anyone?

That teaser poster is very nice. Just recently saw The Mummy Returns on TV, and it wasn't half bad. The first one was better, obviously, but the sequel was good fun too.

It's a funny coincidence (or is it?) that The Mummy should return the same year Indy does...

Director Rob Cohen has updated his official blog, stating that the trailer for the upcoming "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" movie will become available on Friday, May 16th at 9pm PST.

"I'm really stoked, and I think the trailer guys at Universal (led by Frank Chiocchi) did a great job," said Cohen. "It will make its US debut in theaters May 16th with prints of Prince Caspian, and will make its international debut on prints of Indiana Jones on May 22th. I'm really looking forward to your reaction. So crank up the sound and view it full screen as soon as you can!!"

Cool! Rick with Indy in the same theater screening! Two classic action heroes for the price of one! Sweet!

Ahhh, you beat me to it!

It looks pretty good! I'm definitely looking forward to this movie! I'd have to say it's coming in right after The Dark Knight now, as for as my anticipation goes.

That trailer was fantastic! I was looking forward to this movie before, but the trailer definitely got me a lot more exited about it. I love how there will be a yeti in this one. My favorite shot was the two planes dive bombing the terracotta soldiers. AWESOME! The trailer on the official Mummy is slightly different than the one posted a little ways back, the "here we go again" is replaced by Rick running in front of a truck and yelling "wow wow wow! There's a mummy on the loose!"

I've only seen the first which was ok, but I liked National Treasure better. Is the sequel any better?

Naw, I definitely think the first Mummy is better than the 2nd.

Definitely. They both have great humor, but the second has crap CG, some bad plot holes, and the Rock.

Otherwise, it was okay.

As far as Indy copy films go I think thatthe Mummy and National Treasure series are the best of the bunch.

The Mummy offers a good twist by making it Indiana Jones meets the Mummy. I think the results are very good. I also enjoyed the 2nd one too, granted the cgi Scorpion King is crap and the plot is cheesy, but it was an enjoyable experience watching it, isn't that what films are about?

I'm surprised they have a third on the way, but judging by the trailer it looks very good and they even throw a yeti in for good measure.

I would be more than happy if they continued to make these kind of films that 'ape' but not quite top the Inidana Jones series. These are the kind of action-adventure films I like to watch.

Thoughts

Watching the first Mummy movie is something I still enjoy, that is the magic of the first. It was cheesy, exaggerated and silly. That's what made it fun for me. It reminded me of Indiana Jones because of all that. We had the hero who was always in over his head, the love interest who was just as stubborn as the hero, the guy who helps our hero in his quest who also proves to be pretty awesome himself, and the comical relief. That's what makes it fun, it's not a horror story, it's an action-adventure that happens to exist in the realm of fantasy. The mummy coming back to life was a great idea to add in, and made the treasure hunting aspect of the movie all the more important. They needed to find the golden book to kill the creature. Very fun addition. Over all a great movie to sit back and enjoy.

The biggest problem with the second one, is that it really didn't add anything new to it all. Yes the mummy must now kill a bigger mummy is way cool. But, it was stale in the fact that, most of what was done, had been done before. The mummy coming to life AGAIN, and Rick must kill it AGAIN. While it had fun moments of the first, it was stale in its storytelling, it wasn't new. But when your franchise is called the mummy, it's hard to do something new. This is the seconds biggest failing. I enjoy the heck outta the movie, but it's not as fresh.

The third has one big failing for it, and it's the same as the second, but only bigger. Another Mummy comes to life? Honestly? Another army is being raised to take over the world? The group has to kill the mummy? What? No originality. Just a new location and mummy to hope people will forget about the second. But my Wife was the first to notice it, and she is a die-hard fan of the mummy movies. It looks fun, but holy cow. I'll probably still see it for the same reasons I love the first, but that is the big problems with them all.

What does Meshiver mean?

In The Mummy,Terence Bey says to Evelyn,"Now,I don't care how you do it,I don't care how long it takes,straighten up this meshiver!"
What does meshiver mean?
The first conclusion me and my family came to when we first watched the movie was maybe it's another word for mess and apparently we weren't the only people who thought that because someone who is a member of Movie Mistakes:The Mummy movie questions and answers posted this,"Meshiver is just another word for mess." However the person who put this answer up didn't give a source for the conclusion of his/her answer.He/she didn't say what language it was.Naturally,I would assume it's Arabic considering the official language in Egypt is Arabic and they were speaking Arabic throughout the whole movie,but I looked up Arabic - meshiver and I couldn't find any Arabic translations.I did however,find a word in Hebrew - mishivah(it looks and sounds very similar),but I couldn't find out what that meant either.Besides,it wouldn't make any sense that it would be a Hebrew word when,like I said,the official language in Egypt is Arabic.

P.S.
I hope I put this thread in the right place.

I figured maybe,possibly,that the person who did the subtitles in The Mummy may have gotten the spelling of the word wrong and the word may have actually been meant to be spelled differently.If Terence Bey was speaking Hebrew it would have been because he might know both languages because of knowing a lot about ancient history and therefore know other languages,but I'm not 100% sure if he was speaking Hebrew or if he even knows Hebrew.That's the second reason why I started this thread.The first reason being I was just curious of the literal translation to what he said.Does anyone here know either language?

I've never heard it before but maybe Terence is Jewish and has just thrown it into a sentence as is commonly done with words such as goy, Mazal Tov or oy vey!

You're probably correct with the whole "mess." I haven't seen them all and don't remember the word mentioned from what I have seen, but when I saw your thread title I immediately thought: meshuga, which is crazy/senseless...

What does the closed captioning read?

Yes,I did consider meshugana(also spelled meshugganah)as an option,but it has four syllables and meshiver only has three.

The closed captioning reads as meshiver.

The words are not cast in stone, I've heard the three syllable meshuga many times. Closed captioning isn't flawless...
