"Conventional wisdom used to be that summer movie season started Memorial Day weekend. Then in 1999, Universal Pictures tried to undercut THE PHANTOM MENACE, and they brought out THE MUMMY the first weekend of May and nobody was expecting it to be a hit, it made $40 million opening weekend." - Sean Stangland, Daily Herald Widescreen Columnist.
