With The Mummy London premiere cancelled following the Manchester bombings, the cast of the new film celebrated 'Mummy Day' in Hollywood and unveiled a dramatic 75-foot high, seven-ton sarcophagus at the Hollywood & Highland Center on May 20, 2017.

The giant sarcophagus is a wonderful publicity stunt at one of the Hollywood's busiest tourist attractions and is beautifully framed by the Egyptian hieroglyphics on the Babylon Court Archway which is part of a recreation of the Babylon Gate from D.W. Griffith's 1916 silent film, Intolerance.

The Mummy reboot is planned to help set up Universal's shared monster movie franchise dubbed the 'Dark Universe', which will see the likes of Javier Bardem step into the heavy shoes of 'Frankenstein's Monster' and Johnny Depp disappear as 'The Invisible Man'.

Hopefully all this world-building for future movies won't come at the expense of a this movie which already has a premise we've seen before in the 1999 to 2008 trilogy and 1932's classic motion picture featuring Boris Karloff as the bandaged undead creature.
