Short Story #16

You don’t mess with Marcus and get to live.

You don’t mess with his children and get to see the next daylight. You don’t mess with his wife and get to see the sunset from the Eiffel Tower. But most of all, MOST OF ALL, you don’t get to mess with Marcus da Díxon’s identical mirror image twin and get to breathe the next minute. Ray was the reason why his heart beats. The reason why he existed. When they were created, Ray was chosen as the automatic function between the two meaning that if Ray dies, then Marcus dies.

Ray had danger magnet stamped on his forehead and Marcus found himself trying to do the impossible: protect his twin at all cost in order to keep them both alive, something he recently failed miserably at, hence the reason he found himself in the seediest Parisian district known to the French searching for his missing twin, his heart beat growing fainter with every passing second.

*** I am still struggling to write. I don’t have writer’s block, but my focus is not on writing short stories at the moment. This is something I found while going through my flash drive. I kind of added a little bit to it, but that’s about all the writing I did. It’s a Science Fiction story, but I don’t think I’ll be completing this one. It was an experiment of sorts. ^^

‘The Mummy’: new death-defying trailer and poster

mummy-poster

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

Set to a dope remix of “Paint It Black” by The Rolling Stones, the extended trailer for The Mummy is EVERYTHING! Tom Cruise just posted the trailer and tweeters are going bonkers!

The last time I saw Tom Cruise in a horror genre was back in 1994’s Interview With the Vampire. Twenty-three years later, he is taking on The Mummy. I love the visuals and the cinematic effects. There was a shot of the pyramids in there as well. Tom screaming is all cleared up and I admit that I miss the original screaming.

In the trailer, we learn that Nick (Tom Cruise) is the cause behind the awakening of the mummy and she won’t stop until she gets what she wants. If she won’t leave him alone, then I can see no other way than Nick killing himself to rid the ancient curse. Oh great, if this happens, then I have to watch Tom die twice on the big screen this year.

Tom is also shown in a beautifully captured shot while underwater. A reminder that he can breathe for six minutes under there! 😛

The Mummy:

That scene where the mummy crawls towards Tom terrified many of the fans, but I was just cool throughout the trailer. To be honest, Tom had the fear struck into him when she jumps on top of him and his eyes reflected it perfectly.

I watched a few times and I can dig it. Oh, and Nick Morton’s look reminds me of Uncharted’s Nathan Drake. Perhaps they can think of putting TC in a live-action movie version of the game? I mean…

It’s going to be an epic thrilling terrifying adventure this summer!

MOVIE TRIVIA: It took 64 takes in order to complete the crashed plane sequence in which the team is flung through the air.

This will be the first movie in the Mummy franchise where the mummy is a woman.
