Jedediah (Owen Wilson), Octavius (Steve Coogan), Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Attila The Hun (Patrick Gallagher), Sacajawea (Mizuo Peck) and the rest of the Museum of Natural History exhibits are back for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, but the magical tablet that brings them to life at night is losing its powers.  Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek) doesn’t know how to restore it, but he thinks his father might.  The problem is, his father is on display at London’s British Museum so Larry’s (Ben Stiller) got no choice, but to cross the Atlantic to save his friends.

With the new installment hitting theaters this weekend, I got the opportunity to meet my favorite actor from the Night at the Museum films, Crystal the Monkey who plays Dexter.  After that, I decided it’d be cool to make some time to talk to director Shawn Levy, Wilson, Stiller and franchise newcomers Rebel Wilson and Dan Stevens about their experience making the film.  But really, the group was great.  They shared some impressions of each other, taught me a thing or two about being the size of Owen Wilson’s character and more.  Hit the jump to check it all out.
