First images from Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb released

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »

'Night at the Museum 3' Photos Reunite Robin Williams and Ben Stiller

2 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since it was first announced last February, there have been very few story details released for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, the third and final installment of Ben Stiller and director Shawn Levy's hit franchise, until now. USA Today has released the first three photos, along with an interview where Shawn Levy reveals why the story shifts from the U.S. to London.

Take a look at the images, which feature returning cast members Ben Stiller (Larry Daley), Robin Williams (Theodore Roosevelt), Patrick Gallagher (Atilla the Hun), Mizuo Peck (Sacajawea) and Skyler Gisondo (Nick Daley), along with our first look at Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens as Lancelot.

While the first two movies in the franchise, Night at the Museum and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian were set in New York and Washington D.C., this third and final adventure goes across the pond to London, »

First Night At The Museum 3 Images: Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens Debuts as Lancelot

2 hours ago | | See recent news »

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. »

First Look: Ben Stiller in 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb'

3 hours ago | | See recent news »

In what will likely be the final adventure in this family friendly franchise, Ben Stiller is back in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, and the first photos from the film have arrived. We get to see Robin Williams back as Teddy Roosevelt, and also Dan Stevens joining the film as Lancelot (but no sign of Rebel Wilson yet). This time the action moves across the pond in London's British Museum. This time the Egyptian Golden Tablet of Pharaoh Ahkmenrah, which makes the museum exhibits come to life at night, is corroding, and something must be done to save it. This will probably be more of the same, but whatever. Here's the first photos from Shawn Levy's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb from USA Today: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel, »

Initial Images From Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb

6 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

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 Toronto Film Festival will again play host to scores of Oscar hopefuls

25 July 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

With today’s announcement that David Dobkin’s film The Judge will open the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, I figured that it was a good time to talk about the Tiff lineup. That Robert Downey Jr. vehicle will seek to become an awards player, and it’s not alone. Each year, scores of titles descend on Toronto in order to distinguish themselves to Academy members and various precursor voters everywhere. The festival has a solid history of producing Oscar nominees, though the big time competition this year from the New York Film Festival will certainly shine a light on just how essential a stop this fest still is. For now though, it’s a big one, and well worth a bit of discussion. As mentioned above, the opening film is The Judge, which could be a Best Actor player for Downey Jr. or perhaps even a Best Picture contender if it’s better than expected. »

22 July 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) has fired its awards season opening salvo, announcing a slew of world premieres for the September edition, which will close with Alan Rickman’s A Little Chaos.Scroll down for full list

Two factors are certain to ratchet up the sense of anticipation heading into September. Most of these titles are without Us distribution and that said, it remains to be seen which films will qualify for a coveted first-weekend slot.

Tiff top brass made it clear earlier this year that any title that sneaks into Telluride will be forced to screen after the first four days of the festival. Tiff runs from »

Tiff 2014: Complete 2014 Toronto Film Festival Lineup Announced

22 July 2014 7:32 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This morning the first wave of the 2014 Toronto Film Festival lineup was announced and so far it's an impressive list of films including films from Noah Baumbach, Mike Leigh, David Gordon Green, Jason Reitman, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg, Antoine Fuqua, Edward Zwick, Mikael Roskam, David Dobkin and many others. One surprising detail is there was no announcement of an opening film so along with everything below there is still at least one biggie on the way, and while they say it has nothing to do with their "premiere" mandate, I wouldn't be surprised if it might be Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman and they're waiting to see if it will be the North American premiere. Then again, could Birdman open both Toronto and Venicec But what else could it bec Maybe David Ayer's Furyc No chance for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar... or is therec Probably the films announced so far »

Ben Kingsley Signs For TV's Tut

14 July 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

He’s already busy playing a comically menacing Pharaoh for Shawn Levy’s third Night At The Museum outing (which, given Kingsley’s presence, we’re tempted to rename Knight At The Museum), but Ben Kingsley is set for a more serious take on Egyptian royalty for Us cable channel Spike’s new series Tut.Tut is planned as the channel’s biggest production yet, and its first scripted series for eight years. It’ll shoot in Morocco and Canada and features Kingsley as Ay, the Grand Vizier to King Tutankhamen, who wields more influence than you might expect.“Who better to lead the cast than one of the greatest actors of our generation – Ben Kingsley,” says Spike’s Sharon Levy in a statement picked up by The Wrap. “The character he plays, Ay, is the true power behind the Tutankhamen throne.
