She has high hopes for the experience of a professor well-known for his expertise on Egypt, with the help of which she plans to revive the mummy.

It is another amazing work by a French director Luc Besson, who has proven to keep his young audience on their toes while watching Arthur and The Invisibles and its sequels. Older audience might have enjoyed his works as well, such as The Fifth Element, Léon The Professional, and The Atlantis.

Watch the trailer here:

... or head straight to Netflix to watch this masterpiece of French cinematography!

I hope you have an exciting Friday movie night, as I know what I am re-watching tonight 🍿

Bon Film!
