Press Release: Cinesite Wins VFX on Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

Cinesite are pleased to announce that they have started work on 20th Century Fox’s Christmas release, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.

Directed by Shawn Levy, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is the third and final instalment in the trilogy. The magical Egyptian tablet of Ahkmenrah, the key to bringing the museum’s exhibits to life, has begun to corrode, putting the fate of the exhibits in jeopardy as a result.  Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) embarks on an epic quest throughout the exhibits, uniting new characters and old favourites with the aim of saving the magic before it is gone forever.

The late Robin Williams reprises his role as Teddy Roosevelt, and is joined on the cast by Dan Stevens as Sir Lancelot, Ben Kingsley as Ahkmenrah’s father, a powerful pharaoh and the creator of the magical tablet, and Rebel Wilson as Tilly, a security guard who comes across the shocking after-hours activity.

The VFX supervisor for the production is Erik Nash, whose previous credits include Iron Man 3 and Avengers Assemble.  Zave Jackson is the VFX supervisor for Cinesite, whose recent work includes The Man from U.N.C.L.E., X-Men: Days of Future Past and 300: Rise of an Empire.

“We at Cinesite are proud to be working on the final film of the immensely popular Night at the Museum trilogy.” said Cinesite MD Antony Hunt. “We are working hard to deliver high quality visual effects for the release which is just two months away.”
