The movie that literally brought life to the lights of museums, “Night at the Museum” returns for the third time into the big screen with a more global plot in “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.” Read on to learn more about this scoop.
It seemed like a long time ago that the last “Night at the Museum” was released into the theaters. Somehow, it didn’t really make us expect that there will be a third film for the museum movie franchise until 20th Century Fox released the trailer for the fantasy film “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.”
Ben Stiller returns to the movie as the worthy night guard Larry Daley, and for the third installment, he’s going international. In the two-minute trailer, it has been revealed that the tablet that keeps his museum buddies alive, the Golden Tablet of Pharaoh Ahkmenrah, is starting to run out of magical force. This basically entails that if it completely runs out of it, his museum buddies would be nothing more but reminders of the distant pasts. He then embarks on a journey to London, England to visit the creator of the tablet, who is played by Ben Kingsley, in the British Museum. Reaching the British lands, he meets another security guard (played by Rebel Wilson) and Sir Lancelot, who is brought to character by “Downton Abbey’s” Dan Stevens.
Ben Stiller is not the only one returning for the third movie as Shawn Levy retained the directorial role along with the original casts Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan and Ricky Gervais. They are basically joined by the abovementioned Ben Kingsley, Rebel Wilson and Dan Stevens.
The movie offers a slightly lethargic plot compared to the upcoming superhero movies that it’s going against with. In the feature of Slash Film, they indicated that “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” appears to be somewhat slow paced in the way that its previous film was shown about five years ago and the first film three years prior to that. The gap seems to be far off, so it will come as a bit of a challenge for the creators of the movie to stand tall in the cinemas, especially when you compare it with other young adult series and movie franchises that only has a year or two in its franchise gaps.
Despite having intense competitions, the creators of “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” are hoping to get a similar outcome as they did in the “Night at the Museum: Battle at the Smithsonian,” as discussed by Screen Rant. Banking for a good boost in its viewers, the movie is set for a holiday release on Dec. 19, 2014.
That wraps up the recently released trailer of “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.” Keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for the latest updates in the entertainment world.
