The Pyramid Is a New Mummy Horror Flick That I Really Hope Isn't "Found-Footage"

I don't have a specific aversion to found-footage - it's a form like any other, and depends on the story you tell. But following the fake CG historical part of this trailer, the first look at our main characters appears to be classic "Hey, let's make a documentary about something unexplained, because that never goes wrong" POV shooting, while the last third has everyone running, shooting and falling in ways that couldn't feasibly be accomodating any kind of complex camera work.

I'm all for mummies being scarier that Arnold Vosloo with CGI acne, but if you're going for something more "realistic" here, Fox, I'm waiting for another trailer to convince me.
