Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is the third movie in the Night at the Museum franchise starring Ben Stiller as night watchman Larry Daley. It is a family-oriented action-adventure film with a soundtrack available on iTunes and a rating of PG for mild crudeness and action, as well as a bit of profanity.
This third installment of the series is particularly notable because it was released after the death of Robin Williams, who returned to his role as Theodore Roosevelt. The movie is also packed with other big-name actors, including Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, Ben Kingsley, Rebel Wilson, Steve Coogan and Ricky Gervais. It was directed by Shawn Levy, who also directed the previous two films in the series.
As with its predecessors, this movie takes place partly in the Museum of Natural History, where all of the exhibits come to life at night thanks to the powers of a magical Egyptian tablet. However, the tablet’s powers are in danger of failing, and Larry realizes that it is up to him to find out how to preserve its magic. Hence, he embarks upon an exciting journey around the world.
While he’s away from the museum, he’ll meet many people to aid him in his search. Meanwhile, some of the characters from the museum decide to give him a hand by going along with him. Many different cultures and periods of history are about to clash in this film, the most action-packed installment yet.
Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, which was filmed in London and British Columbia, was released in December of 2014 and is 98 minutes long. The film was written by David Guion, Michael Handelman and Mark Friedman, while many of the characters were created by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant.
