In case you're unaware, according to the movies, opening an ancient sarcophagus is a really, really, really stupid idea.
Earlier this month, scientists and archaeologists unearthed a 2,000-year-old black granite sarcophagus in Alexandria, Egypt, that had never been opened.
Its contents are a mystery, but it's even been suggested that it could be the long lost tomb of Alexander the Great. Alongside the sarcophagus was a ghostly alabaster head.
The decision has been taken to open the ancient coffin, which have understandably caused many social media users to worry that it could unleash a curse.
