Wait, How Many Mummies Did Brendan Fraser Kill In The Mummy Trilogy?
Brendan Fraser's Rick O'Connell killed a Lot of mummies in The Mummy trilogy. 1999's The Mummy had a long road to the big screen, with the project starting as a smaller, horror-focused remake of the Universal Monsters classic. Filmmakers like George A. Romero and Clive Barker developed takes, but it was Stephen Sommers who landed the job. His pitch merged The Mummy with Indiana Jones, and a surprise box-office smash was born. In addition to receiving two direct Mummy movie sequels - 2001's The Mummy Returns and 2008's The Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor - the trilogy also received a spin-off saga with The Scorpion King movies.

While the reception to The Mummy sequels was (rightfully) mixed, the 1999 movie is fondly regarded. A big part of that is down to Fraser's endearing performance as protagonist Rick O'Connell, with the role combining the actor's talent for physical comedy and action.
