The MummyCombining the thrills of a rousing adventure with the suspense of Universal's original 1932 horror classic, The Mummy, is a true non stop action epic, filled with dazzling visual effects and top-notch talent. It tells the story of a group of people searching for a long-lost treasure deep in the Egyptian desert, who manage to unearth a 3,000 year old legacy of terror. The Mummy ReturnsWhen a chain of events finds the corpse of Imhotep resurrected in the British Museum, the mummy Imhotep walks the earth once more, determined to fulfil his quest from immortality. But an even more powerful force born of the darkest rituals of ancient Egypt has also been set loose in the world. When these two forces clash, the fate of the world will hang in the balance sending the O'Connells on a desperate race to save the world from unspeakable evil. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon EmperorFilled with spectacular action and sharp banter, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor finds the dashing Rick and Evelyn O'Connell (Brendan Fraser and Maria Bello, who took over for Rachel Weisz) called upon for another world-saving adventure. The film opens in 50 B.C., when the ruthless Dragon Emperor (Jet Li) seeks to conquer one last enemy, death, and become an immortal ruler. But when the Emperor betrays an obliging sorceress (Michelle Yeoh), he and his army are cursed to spend an eternity in statuesque limbo. Fast forward to 1946, when Rick and Evelyn are struggling to adapt to their self-imposed retirement. But the fates have other plans, and soon the O'Connells are crossing paths with their somewhat estranged son, Alex (Luke Ford). While enthusiastically carrying on the family's tomb-raiding traditions, Alex has unwittingly brought the Dragon Emperor back to life. With the world in peril, the O'Connells must overcome their differences to prevent the Dragon Emperor from gaining immortality for himself and his army. Along the way they're joined by a mysterious young woman (Isabella Leong), a wily pilot, and a trio of Abominable Snowmen. Jumping from Shanghai to the Himalayas to the Chinese desert, director Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious, Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story) takes audiences on a breathless adventure that continues The Mummy's love of quick wits, close calls and big battles. The result is a spirited romp that proves evil is no match against a family united.

Imhotep (sometimes spelled Immutef, Im-hotep, or Ii-em-Hotep, called Imuthes by the Greeks), fl. 27th century BC (2650-2600 BC) (Egyptian ii-m- tp j -im- at p meaning "the one who comes in, with peace") was an Egyptian polymath, who served under the Third Dynasty king, Djoser, as chancellor to the pharaoh and high priest of the sun god Ra at Heliopolis. He is considered to be the first engineer, architect and physician in history known by name, though two other physicians, Hesy-Ra and Merit-Ptah lived around the same time. The full list of his titles is: Chancellor of the King of Egypt, Doctor, First in line after the King of Upper Egypt, Administrator of the Great Palace, Hereditary nobleman, High Priest of Heliopolis, Builder, Chief Carpenter, Chief Sculptor and Maker of Vases in Chief. Imhotep was one of very few mortals to be depicted as part of a pharaoh's statue. He was one of only a few commoners ever to be accorded divine status after death. The center of his cult was Memphis. From the First Intermediate Period onward Imhotep was also revered as a poet and philosopher.
