“Night at the Museum 3” has a new title and a new release date.
The latest installment in the “Night at the Museum” franchise is now called “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” and is slated for release on December 19. The film had previously been scheduled to open on Christmas Day.
Ben Stiller returns as a hapless museum security guard, who coincidentally always seems to be working when objects at the museum come to life. The action for the third film in the series has been moved to the British Museum, in London.
The new subtitle indicates that much of the story will focus on Ben Kingsley‘s new character, who’s described as an Egyptian pharaoh who’s been brought to life by a magic tablet. Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, and Ricky Gervais are reprising their roles from the first two films; Rebel Wilson joins the ensemble as a night security guard at the museum.
