‘The Mummy Returns’: Brendan Fraser Reveals Scorpion King’s Bizarre CGI



“The Mummy Returns” featured Dwayne Johnson as the villainous Scorpion King, who appears with a monstrous look done in CGI at the plot’s climax.

Those who watched the movie should remember that the effect wasn’t all that realistic, leaving the character looking like a video game doll.

Because of this, fans make jokes about the character to this day.

And now that leading man Brendan Fraser has returned to the spotlight due to his upcoming movie, ‘The Whale,’ he’s been asked what he thinks of the villain’s bizarre look.

In an interview with GQ, the star laughed at the situation, but justified himself by saying that the CGI was done in a hurry:

Take the time to watch:

“I know I know [que ficou ruim], but be nice. The people who did the CGI for Scorpion King, they told me at the premiere that they had a tight deadline: ‘Hey Mr Fraser, how are you? Good work. You know, we did the digital double for the Scorpion King’. And they’d kind of make an excuse like, ‘We needed a little more time [risos] before finishing…”

He continued:

“Like I was their boss, you know? It was fun but it was last minute, I don’t know how it works. But part of its charm is that when you look at it these days… Well, it wouldn’t be as fun if you didn’t see that goofy wax figure of Dwayne go “Arghhhhh.” And in a way, it’s just perfect how things work.

Remember that ‘A Baleia’ will be released on the international circuit on December 9th. In Brazil, no date has been confirmed.

Recently, production company A24 released the first trailer for the highly anticipated drama directed by acclaimed Darren Aronofsky (“Mother!”).

Hailed at the Venice Film Festival, the film tells the story of a 270-kilogram man named Charlie, who tries to reconnect with his teenage daughter after abandoning her to be with a lover. After the death of his partner, Charlie indulges in a compulsive eating disorder in response to bereavement, which eventually turns him into a morbidly obese man.

Check out the preview:

Fraser received a six-minute standing ovation after the closing credits on screens at the Venice Film Festival – which also brought him to tears.

Recently, the star spoke about his transformation into a feature film star: after all, he gained weight and used prosthetics to play a character weighing 600 pounds.

Fraser, who hasn’t been in a major Hollywood movie in years, revealed he wanted to “disappear” to bring the character to life.

“If there is no risk, then why bother? I want to learn from the people I work with at this point in my career. I’ve had so much variety, so many ups and downs, so what I want in the second half of my time is to feel like I’m contributing to the craft and learning from it. It’s a great opportunity. I wanted to disappear on the screen. My hope was that I would become unrecognizable.

Aronofsky is known for his dense and critical films, which are usually the subject of various controversies. His most recognized works are “Requiem for a Dream,” which brought together Marlon Wayans, Jennifer Connelly, Jared Leto and Ellen Burstyn in a storyline about drug addiction; ‘Black Swan’, with Natalie Portman and which earned him an Oscar nomination for best director; and ‘Mother!’, a psychological thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem.
