It's story time at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena, California, and almost immediately I spot the day's celebrity reader in the distance… Dick Van Dyke. In L.A., it wouldn't necessarily be that surprising to have a celebrity reading at a local bookstore, but today's reading is anything but normal since we're on the set of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, the movie based on Judith Viorst’s classic children’s book.

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Disney’s glitzy Los Angeles Mary Poppins premiere. As the recent movie Saving Mr. Banks showed, writing the music for Mary Poppins was not an easy task for composers Richard and Robert Sherman, who had to contend with prickly Poppins author P. L. Travers. “She was terrible to us—just very negative and unreceptive. I felt like we were drowning,” Richard told EW last year.
Despite all that, there’s a lot of music in this movie—probably more than you remember. The movie’s soundtrack features 16 songs with lyrics, and not all are »

It took Walt Disney more than 20 years to acquire the rights After his daughters fell in love with the books Walt Disney promised he’d adapt P.L Travers’ hit story for the silver screen.

Ah, so, we're doing this again? Above is the trailer to A Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb, the third part of what feels like a neverending series of children's films pretending to educate your child about history. Ben Stiller is back because Ben Stiller isn't a businessman, he's a business, man. And this time, his security guard Larry is tasked with porting the museum's many magical inhabitants to England, befitting a series that is absolutely huge overseas. It seems like some of the action spills out into the city this time around, so maybe they have a bigger budget. They'd have to, considering the theoretical raises everyone must have received to come back: also returning for this installment is Robin Williams' President Roosevelt, Ricky Gervais' Dr. McPhee and the trio of Dick Van Dyke, Bill Cobb and Mickey Rooney (in his final role).

Not just a great comedian, but a savvy businessman, Steve Carell has been producing his own vehicles since the 2005 smash hit The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Now, hot on the heels of the debut of his latest project -- the celebrity-studded game show Riot -- Carell has sold a new venture to Disney. This one called Brooklyn Family Robinson. THR reports Steve Carell will produce and star in Brooklyn Family Robinson, a family adventure comedy penned by David Reynolds, writer of the beloved Pixar classic Finding Nemo. The project will reteam Carell with the House of Mouse, which recently wrapped on Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, in which the former Office star appears alongside Bella Thorne, Jennifer Garner, Dylan Minnette, Jennifer Coolidge and Dick Van Dyke. A cast like that suggests that Disney can dig deep to build a fantastic ensemble to stand beside Carell for Brooklyn »

20th Century Fox has launched the first teaser trailer for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, which takes Ben Stiller's night security guard across the pond to keep his living museum friends alive.
Watch the first footage from this anticipated sequel, which brings back all of your old friends, including Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt, Owen Wilson as Jedediah and Ricky Gervais Dr. McPhee. Also joing the cast are Rebel Wilson as a London securty guard meeting Larry and his museum pals for the first time, and Dan Stevens as Sir Lancelot. The sequel marks Mickey Rooney's final film before his passing. We also have the first poster, which brings Dexter the monkey back as Larry's sidekick!
The very first Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb trailer is here. 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've only seen bits and pieces of the previous two films so I can't speak to how this trailer stacks up to the rest of the franchise, but there are some genuinely funny bits throughout. Rebel Wilson looks to be a scene stealer as a British security guard, and there's an amusing running joke involving a caveman that looks exactly like Stiller. The British setting is also a smart move, as it should provide plenty of fresh opportunities for the series as a whole. The Museum franchise has always skewed younger, »

With more than a billion dollars in the bank already from the first two instalments, Night at the Museum 3 is set to bring the franchise to a close at the end of the year.
Officially titled Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, the film will bring its ensemble cast to London for its final outing, and it will break from the past formula to go beyond the museum walls, starting out in the American Museum of Natural History before taking in Trafalgar Square and the streets of London.
It may still be summer, but Christmas is going to come around before you know it, and Fox has launched a great first trailer and teaser poster for the family-friendly adventure comedy.
