The official trailer for THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPORER is now available. Finally...an entry from THE MUMMY franchise that is somewhat intriguing. With Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh together (plus a Yeti!), how could you not be intrigued?
Direct Rob Cohen's site has a link to the high def version of the trailer here. Also, the director talks about composer Randy Edelman's score here.
It's been a while since RANDY EDELMAN has done a big-budget, action film. I'm more than a little intrigued about what he will produce here. Once again he teams up with Rob Cohen and his thematic prowess is legendary (Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, Dragonheart, Gettysburg) so we know he'll deliver in that department. But those 1990-synths will most likely not cut the hot-mustard, so I'm hoping for a full symphonic extravaganza. Oh...and I'm not entirely sure of the music used in the trailer, but it sounds like production-music and not anything from Mr. Edelman.
