Night at the Museum Synopsis

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM is an action-adventure-comedy that comes to life by night. Good-hearted dreamer Larry Daley (Ben Stiller), despite being perpetually down on his luck, thinks he’s destined for something big. But even he could never have imagined how “big,” when he accepts what appears to be a menial job as a graveyard-shift security guard at a museum of natural history. During Larry’s watch, extraordinary things begin to occur: Mayans, Roman Gladiators, and cowboys emerge from their diorama to wage epic battles; in his quest for fire, a Neanderthal burns down his own display; Attila the Hun pillages his neighboring exhibits, and a T-Rex reminds everyone why he’s history’s fiercest predator. Amidst the chaos, the only person Larry can turn to for advice is a wax figure of President Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), who helps our hero harness the bedlam, stop a nefarious plot, and save the museum.

Live Like One Of The Royal Tenenbaums With An American Museum Of Natural History Sleepover Live Like One Of The Royal Tenenbaums With An American Museum Of Natural History Sleepover
There's loads of romance to be found in Wes Anderson's odd love letter to New York City, The Royal Tenenbaums. But one of the most enviable activities the Tenenbaum children enact is hiding away in the American Museum of Natural History. And now you can do it too. Well, sort of.

Robin Williams To Return As Teddy Roosevelt In Night At The Museum 3 Robin Williams To Return As Teddy Roosevelt In Night At The Museum 3
The first of the film’s many historical character to come back will be Robin Williams, who is currently in negotiations to reprise his role of Teddy Roosevelt, according to THR. It’s unfortunate that this doesn’t really give us any insight into the film, as he portrayed Roosevelt in both of the previous Night at the Museum films, serving as Larry’s informational guidance counselor.

Fox Is Building A Theme Park In Malaysia With Alien And Life Of Pi Rides Fox Is Building A Theme Park In Malaysia With Alien And Life Of Pi Rides
This actually isn't the first time that Fox has tried to launch a theme park of their own. In 1999 the studio opened the doomed Fox Studios Backlot in Australia, but the idea wound up flopping and the park closed two years after it opened. The Genting Outdoor Theme Park that currently exists will begin the upgrade process in September...

Ben Stiller Will Reveal The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty Ben Stiller Will Reveal The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty
What will we get when Stiller directs himself in an adaptation of James Thurber’s short story The Secret Life of Walter Mitty? Will it be as twisted and aggressive as Thunder or as safe as a Madagascar sequel? Thurber’s original story, first published in 1939, follows a meek protagonist with an overactive imagination.

Night At The Museum 3: Battle Of The Liberace Museum? Night At The Museum 3: Battle Of The Liberace Museum?
Night at the Museum 2 was a blast, due in large part, to the tightness of Amy Adams’ pants. The film was a success so it should come as no surprise to anyone that they’re working on a third one

Paramount Wants Its Own Night At The Museum Paramount Wants Its Own Night At The Museum
Paramount jumped on the opportunity to scoop up George Kay and Jim Field Smith’s family-oriented adventure-comedy idea. Plot details are being kept on the hush hush, but, according to THR, expect “a fantasy-tinged four-quadrant comedy in the vein of Night at the Museum.”

Terminator Salvation Loses Box Office Battle To Ben Stiller Terminator Salvation Loses Box Office Battle To Ben Stiller
The reviews have been terrible and the movie’s much talked about theatrical debut is more of a whimper than a proper, box office terminating takeover. We don’t know whether Memorial Day totals will give it a boost, but we do know that over the weekend, it wasn’t even number one

The new trailer for Night at the Museum: Battle for the Smithsonian starts out much the same as the others, but somewhere about halfway through takes a right turn. One of the fun things about the real Smithsonian museum
