This episode references a video essay about The Mummy by YouTuber Josh Keefe: https://youtu.be/jajqS_f9ZXQ

It also quotes extensively from, “What Ever Happened to Brendan Fraser,” a GQ article from 2018 by Zach Baron. Read that article here: https://bit.ly/2Yougcg

In this episode, we said that The Mummy Returns earned less money at the box office than its predecessor. It actually made $53 million more domestically and $17 million more worldwide. We regret the error.
