The Mummy was truly a revelation. Although it released in 1999, the movie attained cult status and is loved by fans even to this day. While we have all grown up watching the 1999 version the most, there are sequels and spinoffs that never reached the same status as The Mummy. It was a movie for every kind of audience -- be it action, romance, horror, adventure -- you name it. In fact, you could have also picked up a few details on Egyptian 'history'. Sure, there were similar franchises like Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider, and others, but the incredible journey of Rick O'Connell truly stands apart. The movie stars Rachel Weisz, Brendan Fraser, John Hannah, Kevin J. O'Connor, and Arnold Vosloo.
In fact, Brendan Fraser recently revealed that he is totally up for another The Mummy movie, if it has all the 'essential ingredients'. According to Cinema Blend, he said: "Absolutely! Just gotta say, I know how hard it is to make that movie. I tried to do it three times, and the essential ingredient is fun. You gotta remember to have fun. So if there’s a fun way to approach it again, I’m all in." Now we don't have any official confirmation on Fraser returning as O'Connell, but fans would be ecstatic if that happens. If you haven't seen the movie anytime recently, don't worry we have found some incredibly hilarious memes that will help you jog your memory. Here are the 15 best memes based on The Mummy.
