The three-quel we all wanted: Night at the Museum 3 is coming in 2014

Feb. 7, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Forget whatever Best Picture caliber films may be opening next Christmas because NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 3 is officially opening December 25, 2014!

Fox announced the film's release date along with confirming director Shawn Levy and star Ben Stiller will return. No details of plot were revealed, but I would have to guess that if the first one took place at a museum in New York and the second was at the Smithsonian, the next logical step would be to take it international to either London or Paris.

Whichever way this goes, I am hoping Levy learned something when he directed REAL STEEL. I actually liked that movie a hell of a lot more than I expected to. Neither of the NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM movies are much more than popcorn family movies, but I do expect a modicum of quality from the massive casts they carry.

Expect, if anyone returns aside from Stiller, to see Ricky Gervais or Robin Williams when NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 3 opens next year.

Meh. Make him work at a Reno 911! Muesam and we will watch.

The last one was so paint by numbers and boring. The only good thing was the participation of Reno 911! members.

cool! I enjoyed the first two, and welcome a third. Make Jack the ripper the villain in this. I kinda doubt they would make Jack the villain though, as these are family films. What if the tablet ends up in a wax museum full of fictitious characters. The ideas could be endless if we see movie villains, or heroes come to life.

The first one was much better than the second. I agree about the next logical step being to go to a museum in London or Paris. Night at the Louvre, with special guest star Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon!

Hmm I guess this will probably have to do with that tablet. Each time it has been put into use at a different location it has gotten stronger. Likely they may have multiple museums across the country all come to life causing chaos. The only way to stop it will be to probably restore the tablet to its original location where it was buried in an ancient Egyptian tomb. This will split the cast down the middle as some prefer to keep the reanimation going while others realize that the reanimation

Yeah that would make for an interesting story. Doubtful it will happen though. :(

Not really,

but I'll give it another shot. Hope it'll be more like 1 and less like 2.

Maybe they could go to miniature museum or something.

I really enjoyed the first NATM but thought the second was a mess. I usually love Azaria but couldn't stand him in this role. Too many current pop culture references (Jonas Brothers?) for my taste. But I still think this franchise has some life in it. Looking forward to part 3

I agree with what has been said so far, so, so they aren't amazing movies but they are harmless affairs for families. Besides Azaria's Karloff impression was as watertight as they come and a joy to witness.

Liked the first one, never saw the second. I'll see how I feel about the third one.

Hopefully Robin Williams comes back. He was the best part about the first and probably the second one too.

Not great flicks, but...

As a guy who has every intention of being a future parent...I saw NATM, particularly the second one, as harmlessly fun flicks that can hopefully get a youngster interested in history. With enough schtick from their ensemble casts to get a few laughs from the adults. Some of the gags are annoying to the point I want to chuck a shoe at the screen, but I also know at five-years old I'd have thought it the funniest stuff ever.

And I have no shame in admitting I got the warm fuzzies when

And I have no shame in admitting I got the warm fuzzies when Craig Robinson's Tuskegee Airman challenges Amy Adams' Amelia Earhart to a race around the globe.

Making family movies that don't treat kids as sugar-consuming idiots or parents as dupes are tough to make. So I'll save my hate...as both a movie lover and hopefully one-day father...for Michael Bay.
