The Best Movie Remakes of All-Time

The Mummy

The Mummy has been remade more than once over the past 90 years. Audiences were first introduced to the franchise in 1932. In the original film, the great Boris Karloff played the role of Imhotep. The OG series consisted of six installments and spanned 23 years. The franchise was rebooted in 1959 — and starred Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.

However, it wasn’t until 1999 that the franchise truly came back to life. Directed by Stephen Sommers, 1999’s The Mummy was a truly terrific film. Brendan Fraser (Rick O’Connell), Rachel Weisz (Evelyn), John Hannah (Jonathan) and Arnold Vosloo (Imhotep) were magnificent in their roles. In 2017, Universal Studios rebooted the series yet again — with Tom Cruise as the lead.
