Five years after Battle of the Smithsonian (and eight years after the first Night at the Museum), Ben Stiller will be stepping back into the role of night security guard Larry Daley this December for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, the third and final installment in the series. Today, we’ve got the first images for the threequel, which Fox has released ahead of the film’s first trailer debut later this week.
As the images show, Larry is rejoined in this third installment by living museum exhibits Sacajawea (Mizuo Peck), Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek) and Attila the Hun (Patrick Gallagher), among others (expect big roles for Crystal the monkey, Owen Wilson’s Jedediah and Steve Coogan’s Octavius, as per usual). Additionally, Larry’s now-teenaged son Nick (Skyler Gisondo, replacing Jake Cherry) gets wrapped up in the action.

Today we have the first three photos from the third "Night at the Museum" installments, called "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb." Check everything out below. Plot: Larry (Ben Stiller) and museum exhibits including Pharaoh Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek), Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Attila the Hun (Patrick Gallagher), Sacajawea (Mizuo Peck), Roman centurion Octavius (Steve Coogan) and Jedediah (Owen Wilson) wind up at the British Museum's famed Egyptian wing to solve the deadly mystery. The new movie is once again directed by Shawn Levy and is set to hit theaters on December 19th. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
USA Today have released the first official glimpses at the third in the Night of the Museum franchise, Secret of the Tomb. Directed once again by Shawn Levy, the pictures show us some of the returning characters from the franchise, with the new adventure set in and around London…
Director Levy said: “We have brought museums to life……but we have never really explored the idea of taking the magic into the world. This movie really goes beyond the museum walls. We are out in London, on a double-decker bus, in Trafalgar Square. It’s a juicy idea we haven’t explored.”
Set to be released worldwide this Christmas, Secret of the Tomb stars Ben Stiller (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), Robin Williams (Mrs. Doubtfire), Owen Wilson (Meet the Parents), Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect), Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Ricky Gervais (Muppets Most Wanted) and Sir Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3 »

20th Century Fox has unveiled the first Night at the Museum 3 images from director Shawn Levy’s upcoming sequel. Officially titled Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, the third and final entry in the franchise takes the action to London’s British Museum and the city as a whole, where Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens brings the legendary Lancelot to life. Ben Stiller reprises his role as night watchman Larry Daley, and Robin Williams also returns as the bombastic Theodore Roosevelt. The previous sequel, Battle of the Smithsonian, raked in over $400 million at the worldwide box office, so the holiday debut for Secret of the Tomb should ensure solid business for the family film. With these new image debuts today, I imagine a premiere trailer should be on the way shortly. Hit the jump to take a look at the first images from Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. »

They may not be critical darlings, but the two Night At The Museum films have certainly hauled in the coins at the box office. Shawn Levy is preparing to unleash the third and planned final chapter in the story, Secret Of The Tomb, and some new images have arrived. This third outing finds Ben Stiller back as the put-upon Larry Daley, who knows the secret of New York’s American Museum of Natural History – the exhibits come to life thanks to a magical Egyptian tablet from the time of the Pharaohs. But now the table is beginning to corrode and to help everyone involved, Larry and some of the gang including Pharaoh Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek), Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Attila the Hun (Patrick Gallagher), Sacajawea (Mizuo Peck), Roman centurion Octavius (Steve Coogan) and Jedediah (Owen Wilson) must travel to London’s British Museum to find out how to fix it. »
The Venice lineup was announced on Thursday, with a slew of Hollywood actors in its ranks. Among the red carpet names with movies set to premiere include: Jennifer Aniston, Elle Fanning, James Franco, Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Bill Murray, Seth Rogen, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts and Owen Wilson. A few celebs are even planning on doubling down at the festival. To organize a star at festival premieres involves a huge chunk out of the marketing budget. Landing a star for two films in one place can be a great coup for any distributor. This year at Cannes, Robert Pattinson made

This morning in Rome, Biennale president Paolo Baratta and Venice Film Festival chief Alberto Barbera unveiled the lineup for the 71st Venice Film Festival, which features some extraordinarily exciting titles and intriguingly under-the-radar picks.
Twenty films will be competing in the main competition, 19 of which are world premieres with one international premiere out of the lot. Out of all the titles at Venice this year, Birdman, which stars Michael Keaton and features a star-studded cast including Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts, is undoubtedly the title with the most chance of gaining Oscar attention this year after making the rounds on the festival circuit (it’s heading to the Toronto International Film Festival next).
Also anticipated are Manglehorn, a collaboration between Prince Avalanche helmer David Gordon Green and Al Pacino, and Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill, with Ethan Hawke, Bruce Greenwood, January Jones and Zoe Kravitz. »

In my opinion a new Woody Allen movie every year is a bit of a treat. Yes, they can disappoint such as Whatever Works, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and To Rome with Love, but they can also be true knock outs such as Vicki Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris, along with the stunning performance from Cate Blanchett in last year's Blue Jasmine, and that's only looking at the last six Allen films. He's directed nearly 50 over his illustrious career and I'd say his latest, Magic in the Moonlight, falls somewhere in the middle. Set in France in the 1920s, the film is complete with all the acerbic wit, pessimism for life and otherwise charm the better Allen films often exude. Magic in the Moonlight's first two-thirds are delightful as we're first introduced to Colin Firth in the role of Stanley Crawford, a pompous and arrogant »

Excitingly, this fall’s New York Film Festival will see the debuts of not one but two of this year’s most viable Oscar contenders, with word that Paul Thomas Anderson’s thriller Inherent Vice has nabbed the festival’s centerpiece slot. Last week, we reported that David Fincher’s hotly anticipated murder mystery adaptation Gone Girl would open the festival, and now it appears that cinephiles have yet another huge reason to attend.
It’s curious that two huge titles have been announced so quickly for Nyff – typically, the Telluride International Film Festival (Tiff) announces its title before Nyff and attracts bigger names. Regardless, it’s exciting to have confirmation of the movie’s premiere, given how little we’d heard about it up until this point.

On October 4th the New York Film Festival will screen its centrepiece picture, the world premiere of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice starring Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro and Owen Wilson. It will mark PTA’s third time at the Nyff after screening Boogie Nights in 1997 and Punch Drunk Love in 2002.
Based on the 2009 crime novel of the same name by American novelist Thomas Pynchon, Inherent Vice follows private investigator and pothead Larry ‘Doc’ Sportello (Phoenix) as he tries to solve the disappearance of a former girlfriend in 1970′s Los Angeles. Kent Jones, the Nyff Director and Selection Committee Chair spoke admirably about the decision to showcase Inherent Vice in the gala slot:

Top brass at the New York Film Festival (Nyff) issued their second statement of intent within a week as it emerged that Paul Thomas Anderson’s crime mystery will receive its world premiere on October 4.
The film will play as the centerpiece selection at the 52nd New York Film Festival, set to run from September 26-October 12. Nyff director Kent Jones called it a “wildly funny, deeply soulful, richly detailed and altogether stunning movie.”
While Inherent Vice will almost certainly pose a greater challenge to viewers given the nature of the book and the eccentric style of its director, it marks the second must-see likely awards contender that Nyff has snapped up.

As expected, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson’s "Inherent Vice," a '70s detective comedy, will world premiere at the upcoming 52nd New York Film Festival (September 26 – October 12) as the Centerpiece gala on Saturday October 4, declaring itself as a fall awards contender. The fest has launched awards campaigns in recent years for "A Social Network," "Life of Pi," "Flight," "Her," "Hugo" and "Captain Phillips." Anderson's adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel boasts a top-flight cast: Joaquin Phoenix ("The Master"), Josh Brolin ("W"), Reese Witherspoon ("Legally Blonde"), Benicio Del Toro ("Traffic") and Owen Wilson ("Midnight in Paris"). This is Anderson’s third fest outing after "Boogie Nights" (1997) and "Punch-Drunk Love" (2002). Warner Bros. will open the film limited on December 12, 2014 and wide on January »

The New York Film Festival made a hell of a first selection by nabbing David Fincher’s Gone Girl as its opening night film, and now the fest’s second selection makes it an even more enticing destination. Writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice will have its world premiere at Nyff 2014 on October 4th, as the pic as been selected as the fest’s centerpiece gala. The Thomas Pynchon adaptation is led by Joaquin Phoenix, with an eclectic cast that also includes Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, and Owen Wilson. Per THR, Nyff director Kent Jones describes Inherent Vice as “a journey through the past, bringing the texture of the early ‘70s SoCal counterculture back to full-blown life. It’s a wildly funny, deeply soulful, richly detailed, and altogether stunning movie.” With the one-two punch of premiering Gone Girl and Inherent Vice, Nyff is giving the traditional festival juggernaut »

Set in 1970s Los Angeles, the film follows Phoenix's drug-addled detective Larry "Doc" Sportello as he investigates an ex-girlfriend's disappearance.
The film also reunites Anderson with his long-time director of photography Robert Elswit, who has worked on all the director's previous features except for The Master.
Nyff Director and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones said in a statement: "Every new Paul Thomas Anderson movie is an event, an experience – when the lights come up, you feel like you've been somewhere, and come back with your mind altered.

The project, Anderson's follow-up to The Master, reteams the director with star Joaquin Phoenix, who will portray noirish detective Doc Sportello in the title.
