A “Mummy” Trailer Accident Proves Awkward

In the world of movie marketing, even the big corporate giants with plenty of oversight make the occasionally awkward mistake – such as the now infamous and hilarious Yogi Bear poster.

Last night came one which has yielded some fun reaction today. The IMAX trailer for next year’s “The Mummy” remake was uploaded to YouTube last night – a trailer that looks very much like the one already released the other week.

Unfortunately a technical error meant that the clip’s audio track was not the final sound mix – effectively giving us a trailer without music and missing some key sound effects. What was left was just vocal tracks and a bit of background noise and the result is both silly and hilarious, canned grunts and screams into the void which detract the impact from the whole clip.

“The Mummy” opens on June 9th next year.
