Some of you who went to check out Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest this weekend might have caught the first trailer for the upcoming adventure comedy Night at the Museum starring Ben Stiller. Though I had expected direct feeds to the same trailer by the end of the week, all we have to go on is a link to a shorter international teaser; which will do for now.
Night at the Museum Teaser Trailer
Good-hearted dreamer Larry Daley (Ben Stiller), despite being perpetually down on his luck, thinks he's destined for something big. But even he could never have imagined how "big," when he accepts what appears to be a menial job as a graveyard-shift night watchman at a museum of natural history. But during Larry's watch, something extraordinary happens: the museum's exhibits magically come to life.
A fearsome T-Rex insists on a game of fetch (with one of his own skeleton bones); Mayans, Roman Gladiators, and cowboys emerge from their diorama to wage epic battles; and a wax figure of Teddy Roosevelt gives Larry important advice while harboring a crush for an Indian princess. As things spiral wildly out of control, Larry must find a way to control the magic to stop a nefarious plot and save the museum.
The international teaser trailer for Night at the Museum is extremely short compared to the one shown this weekend, but it will give you an idea of what to expect from the film if you are one of the few who didn't catch Pirates.
Check out the international trailer for Night at the Museum over at MyMovies.
Night at the Museum opens to theatres on December 22nd.
