HBO to screen ‘The Mummy’  on Jan 12

HBO is going to screen the film ‘The Mummy’ on January 12 at 9.30 p.m. Nominated for the Academy Awards in 1999 for its sound effects and for the British Academy Awards for the best special visual effects, The Mummy is a rousing, suspenseful and horrifying epic about an expedition of treasure-seeking explorers in the Sahara Desert in 1925.

Staring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, and Arnold Vosloo, the story is about Rick O’Connell acted by Brendan Frase, a dashing legionnaire who stumbles upon the ruins of an ancient Egyptian city where an evil high priest, Imhotep (Vosloo), has been buried, cursed to remain undead for all eternity for indulging in a love affair with the Pharoah’s mistress. Imhotep, who hasn’t been sleeping much in the last three thousand years, visits a battery of unnatural disasters, plagues and horrifying deaths on all the archaeologists and explorers who are falling over each other to get to the ruins first.

Although The Mummy is very much an Egyptian story, the political climate in Egypt during the pre-production period made it impossible to set up such a major movie with all its inherent logistical problems.

HBO brings the best of Hollywood by premiering the top blockbuster movies on television first in South Asia through exclusive licensing deals with four major Hollywood studios – Paramount, Sony Pictures Entertainment (Columbia/ TriStar), Universal and Warner Bros (including New Line Cinema).
