More Frasuary! For Ryan's pick The Mummy Returns (2001), the star of our theme month takes a back seat as we examine the eternal love of Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) and Anck-Su-Namun (Patricia Velasquez). Unfortunately, the movie suffers from symptoms of why Polina hates sequels.

The mummy Imhotep is revived once again by a cult of followers and a reincarnated version of his lover Anck-Su-Namun. Their goal: to ensure their immortality by capturing the power of the ancient Scorpion King. To do so, they steal an artifact from Rick and Evie (now a married couple), kidnapping their eight-year-old son in the process. Then it’s a race to the Scorpion King’s resting place that will determine the fate of the O’Connells’ son, the world, and our two star-crossed villains. Stars Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, Arnold Vosloo, Patricia Velasquez, John Hannah, Oded Fehr, Freddie Boath, Alun Armstrong, Dwayne Johnson, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Shaun Parkes.
