WHY DID Brendan Fraser express his gratitude towards British audiences for the Mummy film? Here’s what he REVEALED!

Brendan Fraser is still renowned for his legendary performances in The Mummy movie series. The Mummy and The Mummy Returns recently had a double feature screening in London. The Prince Charles Cinema exhibited the two Mummy films on 35 mm on January 20.

Fraser did not pass up the chance to interrupt the showing and give his followers a great surprise. The audience and admirers at the Mummy screening event gave the actor a warm standing ovation. The actor was in London for the Oscar press tour for The Whale.

BRENDAN AT THE SCREENING OF THE MUMMY

Brendan interacted with the crowd after his films were screened. Variety reports that Fraser told those present, “I am proud to stand before you tonight.” He continued, “This is a film that was made in Britain. You should know that! Even the second one, too. Be proud. Thank you for being here.”

Brendan Fraser continued by saying that back then, neither the producers nor the performers knew what kind of movie they were developing with The Mummy. “We didn’t know if it was a drama or a comedy or an action or a horror picture or a romance… all the above,” he said. He also made it a point to thank the British audience for one particular reason. “We had no idea until it tested in front of British audiences. Thank you for that,” Brendan Fraser shared.

BRENDAN TO FEATURE IN ANOTHER MUMMY MOVIE?

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Empire, which came out in theatres in 2008, was Brendan's final installment in the series. I am proud to stand before you tonight. The Mummy was rebooted by Universal Studios in 2017, although Tom Cruise was cast as the movie's lead instead of Frasier.

Fraser discussed it with Variety last year, “It is hard to make that movie. The ingredient that we had going for our Mummy, which I didn’t see in that film, was fun. That was what was lacking in [Tom Cruise’s] incarnation. It was too much of a straight-ahead horror movie. ‘The Mummy’ should be a thrill ride, but not terrifying and scary.” Fraser continued by saying that, provided someone came up with the "appropriate premise," he would not object to taking part in a fourth Mummy movie.
