The brand new Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb trailer made its debut online and fans couldn’t be more excited. The clip shows the usual characters, plus some new faces having a great time in another comedic adventure set inside the museum.
Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb is on the move in the new trailer. If you are a fan of the series, you may remember that Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) — the somewhat awkward museum security guard — originally works the graveyard shift at the Natural History Museum.
In the original, Larry runs into some unexpected events while on his shift when the historical characters displayed in the museum suddenly come to life. This creates a series of hilarious situations in a mix of historical fiction, where all the characters take on their well-known personalities in epic battles.
In Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb, Larry moves from the Natural History Museum in New York City to work for a museum in London, England. This time around we see some of the familiar faces come along with him.
Rebel Wilson as Mindy, a shocked security guard who comes across surprising after-hours activity, Robin Williams as American President Teddy Roosevelt, Owen Wilson as Jedediah, Steve Coogan as Octavius, and Ricky Gervais as Dr. McPhee all return for the third installment of the Shawn Levy film. The popular and highly successful franchise has already earned $1 billion worldwide.
Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb also has some new characters, and you may be surprised to find out who plays them. The most notorious one is Ben Kingsley, who joins the cast playing Ahkmenrah’s father, a powerful pharaoh and the tablet’s creator.
We also took a good first look at former Downton Abbey staple Dan Stevens, who has been cast in the role of the legendary Sir Lancelot, one of King Arthur’s legendary Knights of the Round table, who destroys the kingdom by having an affair with Queen Guinevere. Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb could end up being the blue-eyed star’s breakthrough role.
Following his departure from the super successful period drama, the British actor has starred in an array of smaller productions, including The Fifth Estate alongside Benedict Cumberbatch. He also had a stint on Broadway, opposite Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain in The Heiress.
Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb comes to theaters on December 19.
