Ben Stiller is back as museum security guard Larry Daley in the third installment of the Night at the Museum franchise. Once again, things are not looking good for the museum figures that come to life when the lights go out and only Larry can help save his friends.
The magic tablet that brings the museum to life is quickly losing its juice, so Larry packs up his museum posse – Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Pharaoh Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek), Scajawea (Mizuo Peck), Attilia the Hun (Patrick Gallagher),and pint-sized pals Jedidiah (Owen Wilson) and Octavius (Steve Coogan) –and the gang heads to the British Museum to parley with the tablet’s creator and Ahkmenrah’s pop (Ben Kingsley).
The gang also meets a new museum guard played by Rebel Wilson, the bravest of King Arthur’s knights, Sir Lancelot (Dan Stevens), and a caveman who shares more than a slight resemblance to Stiller’s Larry. »
