Directed by Rob Cohen. With Brendan Fraser, Jet Li, Maria Bello, Michelle Yeoh. In the Far East, Alex O'Connell, the son of famed mummy fighters Rick and Evy O'Connell, unearths the mummy of the first Emperor of Qin -- a shape-shifting entity cursed by a witch centuries ago.
A forensic analysis carried out on the mummy of King Ramesses III has revealed that the pharaoh had his throat slit. The first CT scans to examine the king’s mummy reveal a cut to the neck deep enough to be fatal. The secret has been hidden for centuries by the bandages covering the mummy’s throat that could not be removed for preservation‘s sake. Ancient documents including the Judicial Papyrus of Turin say that in 1155BC members of his harem attempted to kill him as part of a palace coup.
