The Mummy (2017)
Nick Morton and his pal, Vail, are military personnel who are also treasure seekers. The duo uncover a long lost tomb in Mesopotamia, which brings in archaeologist, and Nick’s former flame, Jenny Halsey. As they open the tomb and uncover the secrets within, they soon realize it contains the cursed Egyptian princess, Ahmanet, who is awakens and is determined to rule the world, with Nick by her side. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching 2017’s “The Mummy”.

· Nick, Vail and Jenny are exploring the tomb. They’re wearing gloves that cover their hands and fingers as they enter the chamber. They’re still wearing these gloves when Nick reaches out his left hand to catch the dripping mercury. A moment later, Jenny yells for the lights and the trio see the rest of the chamber. Nick walks up behind Jenny and his gloves have his fingers exposed. It’s still that way when Nick raises the light and sees the amulet before she yells, “don’t even think about it”.

· Also during this scene, Jenny is describing the burial chamber. Nick is holding the light with his left hand and is reaching for the amulet with his right hand. Jenny yells at Nick and the close-up view shows he’s holding the light in his right hand. It cuts to another view of him and the light is back in his left hand with his right one lifted.

· Ahmanet walks into the Templar chamber carrying the dagger in her right hand. She walks through the chamber and a close-up of the stone shows she picks it up with the same hand, her right one. It cuts to a front view of Ahmanet as she looks at the stone, and it’s in her left hand while the dagger is still in her right.

· Did You Know? In the monologue, Ahmanet makes a pact with Set who is referred to as “the god of death”. Vail also mentions this when he’s talking to Nick at the pub about the dagger. In ancient Egypt, Anubis is considered the “god of death” while Set was considered the “god of chaos, deserts, storms, envy, disorder, violence and foreigners”.
