Mummy Returns is set
in 1933, nearly a decade after the events of the first film. Rick
O’Connell (Fraser) is now married to Evelyn (Weisz), and the couple has
settled in London, where they are raising their eight-year-old son Alex
(played by screen newcomer Freddie Boath).
When a chain of events finds the corpse of Imhotep (Vosloo)
resurrected in the British Museum, the mummy Imhotep walks the earth once
more, determined to fulfill his quest for immortality.
But another force has also been set loose in the world…one born
of the darkest rituals of ancient Egyptian mysticism, and even more
powerful than Imhotep. When
these two forces clash, the fate of the world will hang in the balance,
sending the O’Connells on a desperate race to save the world from
unspeakable evil, and rescue their son before it is too late.
