20th Century Fox has released a new Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb trailer, and if you liked the first two movies, you’ll probably enjoy the third one because it looks like more of the same. After saving the day (or night) at the Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian, Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) is off to the British Museum in London where he hopes to uncover more secrets about the mysterious tablet that brings the museum figures to life. I’m not sure if there’s anything to truly distinguish this movie from the others, but perhaps there’s not supposed to be. They changed the location, added some new characters (Dan Stevens gets in some good jokes as Sir Lancelot), and then reheated the premise. But when the first two movies make almost a billion dollars combined (worldwide), you don’t really tinker with what you have.
Hit the jump to check out the new Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb trailer. The film opens December 19th, and also stars Robin Williams, Ben Kingsley, Ricky Gervais, Rami Malek, Steve Coogan, Owen Wilson, Rebel Wilson, Patrick Gallagher, Mizuo Peck, Bill Cobbs, Dick Van Dyke, and Mickey Rooney.
Here’s the official synopsis for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb:
Get ready for the wildest and most adventure-filled Night At the Museum ever as Larry (Ben Stiller) spans the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever.
