In this final instalment of the popular series, the exhibits don’t just come to life – they come to London and the British Museum.

After the events of the previous film, Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) begins to take pride in being re-hired as the night guard for the American Museum of Natural History as he watches his exhibit friends entertain the visitors while pretending to be robotic exhibits. However, when the power of Ahkmenrah’s tablet starts to run out, the exhibits, including Theodore Roosevelt (Robin Williams) and Dexter the Monkey, run amok, vandalizing the museum and scaring the visitors. As a result, the museum curator, Dr. McPhee (Ricky Gervais) loses his job.

In the wildest and most adventure-filled Night at the Museum ever, Larry leaves New York City for the British Museum in London. Here he unites favourite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever, with the help of Merenkahre (Ben Kingsley), Ahkmenrah’s father who is a powerful pharaoh and the tablet’s creator.

Expect lots of fast paced fun and entertainment, with Stiller playing a double part; a feisty security guard, Mindy (Rebel Wilson); and a dashing – if deluded – Lancelot (Dan Stevens).

But in amongst the fun there is a bittersweet tinge, with final performances from two cinema greats, Mickey Rooney as Gus and Robin Williams reprising his role as Theodore Roosevelt, the wax statue of the 26th President of the United States.

Look out for Williams also voicing a Garuda artefact in the British Museum, and for guest appearances by Dick Van Dyke as Cecil Fredericks and Hugh Jackman and Alice Eve as themselves, as actors from London’s West End.
