Mummy, The


In The Mummy, Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) and his buddy Vale (Jake Johnson) are US soldiers who moonlight as treasure hunters. They come under fire in Iraq and, with unintentional military help, find the prison tomb of the evil Egyptian Princess Ahmanet (Sophia Boutella).

The Princess has been erased from history and hidden beneath the sands of Mesopotamia in the hope that she'll never again be able to unleash her horror on humanity. With the help of English archaeologist Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis), Nick and Vale try to take the Princess's sarcophagus (stone coffin) to England. This unleashes a series of terrifying events.

Nick awakens in the London morgue to find that he is Ahmanet's chosen one. She's determined to use his body as the temple through which the god of the dead can take human form. Nick and Jenny, with the help of Dr Jekyll (Russell Crowe), try to find a way to break the curse and stop Ahmanet before she destroys the world. At the same time, they must battle Ahmanet's ever-increasing army of the undead.


Death; resurrection; unnatural phenomena; the thirst for power; immortality


The Mummy has a lot of violence. For example:

  • Ahmanet slices her arm open with a dagger and uses her own blood for a ritual.
  • Ahmanet slices the throats of her father, his wife and their baby son. Blood sprays across the room.
  • Ahmanet is about to stab a man to death with a dagger when guards grab her.
  • Ahmanet is mummified alive.
  • A group of insurgents stab Nick and Vale. They return fire but are convinced they'll die. A US air attack on the village saves them.
  • In a vision Nick sees Ahmanet about to stab him.
  • Vale stabs an army captain in the chest twice.
  • Nick shoots Vale three times as Vale tries to stab them all.
  • Ahmanet puts her mummified finger through a man's eye and into his brain.
  • Ahmanet attacks anyone she can and sucks the life out of their faces. This leaves her victims looking like undead mummies, while she slowly takes human form. This happens often throughout the movie.
  • While trying to flee from an undead creature Nick is attacked by hundreds of huge rats.
  • There are many fight scenes in which Nick fights off the undead. He steps on a head and its skull explodes. He also puts his legs and hands through the undead and rips them apart or bashes them with bricks or anything that's handy.
  • Nick stabs Ahmanet and hits her with a candlestick.
  • Dr Jekyll's team subdue Ahmanet with darts and hooks shot into her body. Nick is also shot with a dart.
  • Ahmanet is being mummified with mercury in her veins. She screams about how it burns until Nick begs Dr Jekyll to stop.
  • Dr Jekyll tries to break Nick's ribs, and Nick knocks his tooth out.
  • Jenny must fight off one of Dr Jekyll's guards. They wrestle, knock things over and slam into glass.
  • Ahmanet throws Nick into the air. He slams against a wall and later a crypt. She slams into him, and there's a horrible crack. Nick screams as if his bones are being broken by the blows.
  • Nick stabs himself in the chest with a ritual knife.
  • Nick and Ahmanet attack each other, then Nick sucks the life out of Ahmanet and she returns to mummy form.

Content that may disturb children

Under 5
In addition to the violent scenes mentioned above, The Mummy has many scenes that could scare or disturb children aged under five years. For example:

  • As Ahmanet performs a ritual, tattoos appear all over her naked body and her eyes begin to change. She appears to have two eyes within each eye. The same thing later happens to Nick. The effect is very creepy.
  • Hooded men chant in a burial chamber as they bury a body. The music is intense and eerie.
  • A spider bites Vale and his eyes glaze over with white. He takes a raspy breath and then his face changes to look like one of the undead.
  • Two officers look for the sarcophagus in some wreckage at night. The scene shows screaming crows and unwound bandages before the officers are caught, killed and slowly transformed into undead creatures.
  • There are creepy, undead creatures scurrying through a church, and they close in on Nick as he looks around. Four of them seize him and hold him down on an altar while Ahmanet prepares to stab him with an ancient dagger.
  • As Nick and Jenny flee in a car, undead creatures follow them through the woods, bashing their way through the windshield and attacking them in the car. Nick smashes them into the trees but the car flips over and over in a horrible smash. Jenny is trapped inside while Ahmanet slowly approaches through the foggy forest. Nick tries to fight her off, but he is tossed into the air and violently flung against trees.
  • Undead crusaders often appear from nowhere and chase Nick and Jenny through underground tunnels.
  • After sacrificing himself using the ritual dagger Nick screams at Ahmanet, his face contorting, in a non-human, terrifying way.

From 5-8
In addition to the violent scenes and scary visual images mentioned above, The Mummy has some scenes that could scare or disturb children in this age group. For example:

  • As the main characters are flying towards England in a plane, a swarm of black birds fills the sky and flies into the plane. The birds blast through the glass and destroy engines. Feathers and pieces fly everywhere as the plane begins to break apart and the passengers are tossed around. Nick helps Jenny escape with a parachute. There is horrible screaming as the plane goes down.
  • An undead version of Vale in a bullet-ridden shirt and with a zombie-like face appears throughout the movie.
  • In a rage Ahmanet causes glass to shatter throughout London as Nick and Jenny run for their lives through the streets.

As the sand comes to an open space a terrifying face appears to be screaming from the middle of it. Ahmanet stands in the middle of the storm. She is partially bandaged, grasping her knife and summoning evil forces.
  • Ahmanet summons the crusaders from their crypts below the streets of London to help her capture Nick. He and Jenny try to escape through an underground subway system but are hunted from every direction.
  • Jenny is terrified. Nick tells her to stay with him as Ahmanet silently swims up behind and grabs Jenny, dragging her underwater to her death.

Ideas to discuss with your children

The main messages from this movie are that there is good in (almost) everyone, that love is stronger than hate and that, ultimately, good will conquer evil.

But the sustained suspense and violence in The Mummy, combined with its supernatural themes involving death, resurrection and unnatural phenomena, make this movie unsuitable for children under 15 years. If children over 15 years watch this movie, we recommend parental guidance for them.

Values in this movie that you could reinforce with your children include loyalty, selflessness, honesty and courage.

This movie could also give you the chance to talk with your children about the importance of respect for ancient customs and cultures of the past.

What do babies play at in Nursery School? 360º video

Play is the engine of children's learning. For this reason, in the first years of life, any teaching activity should be based on play. But... Do you know what your son plays at kindergarten?

Here you have a unique opportunity to discover first hand how babies play in nursery or kindergarten. We 'sneak' into the Nemomarlin Infant School - Retiro to watch babies play ... and what!

You can move around the image however you want. You only have to click with the mouse if you are in front of the computer or move your smartphone if you watch the video from your mobile. You will be able to observe how the children play and best of all ... they have fun while learning!

These 3-year-olds play dress-up, swim among colored balls in a sensory pool, observe the hypnotic light of a lava lamp, or climb or crawl through toys designed to develop babies' motor skills. They play, without being aware that they are learning, and that this game means for them a breakthrough in its development.

Children learn by playing. And they learn basic skills, abilities and knowledge. The game also benefits them on a psychomotor level. Here are some of the games that you can see in the video and what they bring to babies:

- The costumes: In the video you can see how the children choose, among all the toys, the costumes. They love to dress up as lions, dancers, fairies ... They love to represent a character, change their image, suddenly be whoever they want. Having the superpowers of a hero or having the ability to turn people into flowers ... Costumes stimulate children's imaginations and help them relate to others. That is, they also help them improve their social skills.

- The ball pool: Is there anything a baby likes more than a ball pit? The child exercises: jumps, throws himself on them, grabs them with his hands ... It is good for his fine motor skills and also for motor and visual development. The ball pool enhances the baby's balance. The balls are brightly colored and this also stimulates the sense of sight ... and touch!

- The light lamp: It is a truly amazing item. Babies are fascinated by lights. Powerfully attract their attention. Light lamps or lava lamps help them to improve concentration and patience, since it helps them to focus for a long time on something specific. It is an element widely used to achieve relaxation and help to think.

- Children's gym elements: The bridges and ramps made of material designed for babies become a fabulous gym for them. They practice balance, tone the muscles of the torso and legs and stimulate spatial intelligence. Fantastic!

Dolls and puppets: Thanks to dolls and puppets, babies experiment with symbolic play. They represent roles and situations that are nothing more than a wonderful training for life. And yes, they also bring more creativity and imagination.

Do I need to eat more if I'm pregnant with multiples?

Yes. If you're pregnant with multiples, you need more calories than a woman who's carrying just one baby.

A general guideline is to add 300 calories a day for each baby. So if you're carrying twins, you'd add roughly 600 calories to your usual diet. This amount may be different if you were overweight or underweight before you got pregnant, so talk with your provider to come up with an eating plan that has the number of calories that's appropriate for you.

Whether you're carrying twins, triplets, or more, plan to eat at least five times a day (three meals and two substantial snacks), even if you don't feel especially hungry.

Of course, not all calories are created equal. Make each one count by limiting sugar and eating a variety of foods packed with the nutrients you need, including protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Cheese, milk, meat, eggs, nuts, and healthy oils all fuel your babies' growth. Round out your diet with lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

How much weight should I gain if I'm pregnant with multiples?

Gaining the right amount of weight is necessary to nourish your growing babies. Try to put on pounds starting early in the pregnancy – when your babies are developing rapidly and you still have room to fill your stomach. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends the following weight gain ranges for women carrying twins based on their pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI):

  • 37 to 54 pounds if you started at a normal weight (BMI of 18.5 to 24.9)
  • 31 to 50 pounds if you were overweight (BMI of 25 to 29.9)
  • 25 to 42 pounds if you were obese (BMI of 30 or higher)

According to the IOM, there isn't enough data to make weight gain recommendations for women pregnant with triplets or more. If you're expecting three or more babies, ask your provider for a weight gain target that's right for you.

If you were underweight before pregnancy, you'll have to put on extra weight quickly to catch up. Your provider can help you set healthy weight goals throughout your pregnancy.

Follow one woman through her pregnancy with twins and watch her give birth.

Will I need to take a special kind of prenatal vitamin?

Prenatal vitamins are important, but you don't need a special formula for twins and triplets. A standard prenatal supplement will do just fine.

A supplement is the best way to ensure that you get vital nutrients such as folic acid, iron, and calcium. Your provider can recommend specific brands and doses.

Women carrying more than one baby are at a higher risk for iron-deficiency anemia during pregnancy. Your provider will monitor your iron level to make sure you're getting enough. If you're not, she may recommend that you take an iron supplement.

High doses of iron can sometimes lead to constipation and nausea, so talk to your provider about ways to avoid these problems.

How much water do I need if I'm pregnant with multiples?

Even if you're the type of person who never goes anywhere without a water bottle, pay extra attention to how much water you're drinking now that you're carrying multiples. Women who are pregnant with one baby are advised to drink 10 8-ounce cups of water (or other hydrating beverages) each day, so that's probably a good starting point for you too.

But every woman is different – you may need a little more or less water than someone else. Ask your provider for specific advice on fluid intake.

Of course, drinking extra fluids means you'll be making extra trips to the bathroom (especially as your babies grow larger), but you can use this as a chance to check if you're hydrated. Aim to drink enough water to keep your urine clear or pale yellow. If it's cloudy or dark yellow, drink more.

It's especially important to prevent dehydration in the second half of pregnancy because having multiples can raise the risk of premature labor and early delivery.

Can I exercise if I'm pregnant with multiples?

If you're a healthy, active woman with multiples on the way, you can probably continue to exercise during your pregnancy, as long as your provider gives you the go-ahead.

Keep it slow, relaxed, and gentle. Your body – and your babies – may not be able to handle intense workouts. Good options include swimming, walking, and prenatal yoga.

Be sure you're hydrated before, during, and after your workout. And no matter what exercise you enjoy, stop immediately if you develop signs of overheating, such as nausea, dizziness, or a racing heart.

That said, carrying more than one baby is a workout in itself, and some women may need to commit to extra rest or avoid doing certain types of exercise. For example, aerobic exercise may be off-limits if you're at risk of delivering your baby early.

Discuss your workout routine with your provider to make sure you and your baby stay healthy during your pregnancy, and be sure to tell your provider if you develop signs of preterm labor, such as abdominal pain or bleeding. Preterm labor is a reason for you to stop exercising altogether.
