You can bring home Rick O'Connell's latest adventures on DVD and Blu-ray right before the holiday season. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 16. The film will be released in a barebones single-disc edition ($29.98 SRP) a two-disc Deluxe Edition ($34.98 SRP) and the two-disc Blu-ray edition ($39.98 SRP). Also on that date, the Mummy Trilogy will be released on DVD and Blu-ray as well, with the six-disc standard set costing $59.98 and the Blu-ray set going for $94.98. The film stars Brendan Fraser, Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh.
Brendan Fraser returns as explorer Rick O'Connell in an epic adventure that races from the catacombs of ancient China high into the frigid Himalayas. Along with his son Alex (Luke Ford), wife Evelyn (Maria Bello) and her brother Jonathan (John Hannah), he must stop a mummy awakened from a 2,000-year-old curse from enslaving the world. Doomed by a double-crossing sorceress (Michelle Yeoh) to spend eternity in suspended animation, China's ruthless Dragon Emperor (Jet Li) and his 10,000 warriors have lain forgotten for eons, entombed in clay as a vast, silent terra cotta army. When dashing adventurer Alex O'Connell is tricked into awakening the ruler from eternal slumber, he turns to the only people he can think of with the skill and knowledge to combat the undead: his parents. But the Emperor's quest for world domination has only intensified during his imprisonment and, with unimaginable supernatural powers and a legion of Terra Cotta Warriors at his command, the Emperor Mummy could be an unstoppable force-unless the O'Connells can vanquish him first.
