On his blog, RobCohenTheMummy.com (which sounds like a sad The Mummy fan's AOL screen name), director Rob Cohen has posted some images from The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. As the name implies, the film hopes to capitalize on the vague American interest in Asian culture created by Abercrombie & Fitch t-shirts and Chinese lanterns by introducing Jet Li as an Asian mummy.
Above is the first image of Maria Bello as Evelyn. If you're anything like me, your reaction will be "who's Evelyn?" It turns out that was the role Rachel Weisz mercifully dropped after the first two Mummies. You probably know the part as "the big buffoon's British idiot girlfriend."
More can be found on Cohen's site.
