Is Mummies movie out?

Mummies movie is out in UK cinemas on March 31st, 2023 and the movie is already out at theatres in the US where it aired as a limited release. The movie has so far fetched $37.5 million at the box office.

One reviewer posted this to IMDB, "I have seen the movie several times and each time better. Every time I've gone to the movies I've heard the children's laughter and I've seen them dancing walk like an Egyptian at the end of the movie.

If you are a 50-year-old man who is lonely and incel, don't go to see it, it is not made for you. However, if you are a good father or a good mother and you want your child to have fun, go ahead."

They rated it 10/10 and added, "This production is not going to change your life, it is not going to make you think, nor is it going to put hackneyed political ideas or ethics into your head, it is designed and manufactured to spend an hour and a half fun, it is humble, with rhythm and fun without further."

How long is the new movie Mummies?

The new movie Mummies is 88 minutes long. One viewer said, "This movie is really funny and light-hearted!! It gives a TV show vibe. The main characters are properly developed. The main and side stories are developed. The side characters are funny and add to the story. There's some humour for all ages in there. The British accents add to everything. Literally the whole movie was cute and funny. It's new and definitely has a fresh feeling. Surprised no one's watching it. 10/10."

They added, "If you only like action, this movie is not for you. But if you're down for a chill, good time, this movie is for you."

But another viewer gave the movie a low score for one reason, writing a Google review they explained, "I saw this with my son and he wants to give this film 0 out of 5 stars. He loved the film all except for the moment when the toy pig, which was the crocodile's love interest, got trashed during the chase at the end. He cried 'why!?!?' and I assured him that the pig would probably re-appear repaired with bandages like the other mummies in the end. I was wrong. 

"What's more, the crocodile didn't even seem to care. How dare you. If he could, he would give this film 0 out of five because of the pig. Other than the pig, it was quite enjoyable."
