Make a date: Saturday, May 20th @12 noon will now be THE MUMMY Day in Hollywood to celebrate the upcoming big-screen adaption of The Mummy starring Tom Cruise. Keep reading on to see what craziness will be happening on that day.
According to Deadline, A 75-foot, 7-ton sarcophagus will be unveiled at Hollywood & Highland with Tom Cruise taking the stage with director Alex Kurtzman, and co-stars Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella and Jake Johnson.
In addition at the Los Angeles famed Hollywood & Highland venue will be The Mummy VR Zero Gravity Stunt Experience and The Mummy Escape Game.
The sarcophagus is the largest single vertical structure ever assembled at the gateway and took two firms a total of eight weeks to construct, and scores of workers more than 160 hours to install. To prepare Princess Ahmanet’s sarcophagus for its revealing on The Mummy Day, the tomb required 18 wide-load tractor trailers to move all of the elements into place.
“The Mummy has been such a labor of love for the hundreds of cast and crew who have worked for the past few years preparing its big-screen launch,” said Kurtzman in a statement. “When we built Princess Ahmanet’s sarcophagus for production, we had no idea that a 15,000-pound replica of her ‘eternal’ resting place would one day find its home at the intersection of Hollywood & Highland. I can’t wait to celebrate her story with the fans on May 20.”
