The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (2010): A Mite-y Movie Mention


Movie

The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (2010)

Genres

Action, Adventure, Comedy

Source

Based on comics by Jacques Tardi.

Elevator Pitch

In order to heal her sister’s near-fatal tennis injury, writer Adèle Blanc-Sec retrieves the mummy of the physician to Pharoah Ramses II for a physicist on death row to bring back to life.

Reasons to Watch

  • It’s utterly ridiculous and delightful
  • There’s a pterodactyl
  • Mummies
  • Near-fatal tennis accident

Random Observation

In a just world this would have launched a series of movies. There is however a later animated film based on Tardi’s work, April and the Extraordinary World.
