Title: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb Director: Shawn Levy Starring: Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Skyler Gisondo and Dan Stevens People often easily embrace the natural and intriguing relationships in their lives, and can start taking advantage of the belief that their connections will never be affected by anything in the world around them. It’s not until their beliefs and ideals change, due to their natural maturing and reactions to challenges around them, that they are finally forced to contend with the knowledge that everyone has to let go of those they love at some point.

Bill Murray Will Sing As Baloo For The Jungle Book

13 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As Disney continues to raid its animated archives for film properties it can turn into live-action spectacles with updated effects, Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book is one of its prime productions. With the movie shooting, Favreau has revealed that Bill Murray, playing loveable ursine sidekick Baloo, will sing as part of the plot.That might raise some eyebrows, since Favreau has said before that this isn’t looking to directly replicate the beloved 1967 cartoon version. But some elements are so iconic they’re worth trying again, even if comparisons will be inevitable. “Although it’s not a musical, we wanted to work in the more memorable moments from the ‘67 film,” says Favreau, enthusiastically responding when asked if that included Baloo’s famous song The Bare Necessities. “How do you not do that?”Murray is just one of a host of names lending their tonsil talents as the CG animals surrounding Mowgli, »

‘Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb’ is a modest, fun excursion

21 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

Written by David Guion & Michael Handelman

Directed by Shawn Levy

USA/UK, 2014

 

Getting the band back together for one final gig is almost never a good idea.  In the case of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, however, there’s enough ingenuity and fun to justify the encore.  Director Shawn Levy adds a few clever wrinkles and plenty of familiar callbacks as he sends his family franchise out with pomp and poignancy.  The untimely death of Robin Williams also adds resonance to the film’s melancholy message that letting go is a necessary, painful fact of life.

It’s easy for critics to dismiss films like Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (Sott).  When you’re three films into a franchise that’s fueled by a wafer-thin premise, you can feel bored and dissatisfied before the movie even begins. »

Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb – The Review

22 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In opposition to TV’s “Schoolhouse Rock” classic tune, for movies three is not always the magic number. It’s true for most film franchises especially comedies (with National Lampoon’S Christmas Vacation being the exceptional exception). Many moviegoers still get queasy thinking about last year’s The Hangover Part III. Well, how about a more family friendly comedy series? In 2006 Ben Stiller decided to expand his fan base by starring in the surprise box-office smash, Night At The Museum, an all ages PG slapstick farce. Naturally he followed it up three years later with Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian, which did enough business to warrant another entry….five years later?! Really, it took that long for all the stars to align? Now these flicks are special effects heavy and during  the post production two of its stars, well, made sure they weren’t available for a fourth installment. »

‘Night At The Museum 3′ Review: Pete Hammond On The Lively ‘Tomb’

18 December 2014 3:12 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The third Night At The Museum installment hits theaters this weekend with one of Robin Williams‘ last performances, plus amusing turns by several series regulars, as I say in my video review above. The cast is led by Ben Stiller as the nightwatchman dealing with lively exhibits at the museum, played by Owen Wilson, Ricky Gervais, Steve Coogan, Rebel Wilson and Ben Kingsley with a terrific performance by Downton Abbey alumnus Dan Stevens as a gung-ho knight.

Veteran comedy helmer Shawn Levy directed from a script written by David Guion and Michael Handelman, from a story by the pair and Mark Friedman. Producers are Levy and Chris Columbus. Fox is handling distribution.

Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb Review

18 December 2014 11:50 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Near the end of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, Robin Williams talks to Ben Stiller about accepting when it’s time to bid farewell to a loved one. The film is filled with flaccid attempts to pull at our heartstrings, but within the context of Williams’ untimely passing this moment is painfully bittersweet. Unfortunately, the rest of the film’s emotional and comedic moments fall flat as we watch Stiller lazily trudge through another series of museum misadventures. This go round Larry (Stiller) is sent to the British Museum in London to repair the Egyptian tablet that makes all the exhibits come to life at night. The films’ prologue provides some backstory about the discovery of the tablet during an archeological excavation and later on we learn about its creation through a fun Ben Kingsley narrated flashback. These recollections about the tablet are some of the most entertaining moments in the film, »

Behind-the Scenes Photo from Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book

18 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A few days ago we got our first look at some beautiful concept art that was created for Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book. It gave us a solid idea of the visual style and tone that the director is going for, and it looked perfect. It seemed to have that same feel as the animated film we all grew up with. Today we have a behind-the-scenes photo from the set of the film that Favreau posted on Facebook. It features the main human character in the story, Mowgli, who is drenched in shadow. The character is played by newcomer Neel Sethi. 

The story follows Mowgli, a man-cub raised in the jungle by a family of wolves, who "embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery when he’s forced to abandon the only home he’s ever known."

The film features the voices of Ben Kingsley (The BoxtrollsIron Man 3 »

Ben Kingsley interview: Night At The Museum 3, The Boxtrolls, Jungle Book

17 December 2014 3:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of the release of Night At The Museum 3, we talk to the great Sir Ben Kingsley about acting and his favourite kinds of films...

While Sir Ben Kingsley has only a supporting role in Night At The Museum 3: Secret Of The Tomb, he packs both of his scenes with the expected intensity. There’s no denying that this man has a really remarkable screen presence.

Earlier this week, I sat down with Sir Ben to chat about his acting processes and philosophies, the influence of documentaries on his performances, how Night At The Museum fits into the bigger picture of his career and, finally, about his approach to voice acting, as per The Boxtrolls and Jon Favreau’s upcoming Jungle Book where he’s playing Bagheera.

There's a great variety of films on your CV but I'm left curious as to what kind of films you actually like to watch. »

16 December 2014 7:05 PM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Christian Bale rides into the valley of temptation–make that the San Fernando Valley–and confronts the excesses of Hollywood in a new trailer for Terence Malick’s film “Knight of Cups,” a study of temptation, love, lust, greed and possibly redemption. Malick couldn’t have picked a better backdrop to test the limits of human emotion, although like most of his projects, the movie’s plot is shrouded in mystery. The cast includes Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Wes Bentley, Isabel Lucas, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Brian Dennehy, and Ben Kingsley.
