London’s very own British Museum was paid a visit by some of Hollywood’s finest. Ben Stiller returns to his role as the night watchman in the final instalment of the Night at the Museum trilogy, bringing him across the Atlantic to the home of Good Films. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb brings back our favourite characters of the franchise played by Hollywood’s finest talent. Ben Stiller is joined by Owen Wilson, Rebel Wilson and the legendary Robin Williams, who can be seen in his last performance before his untimely departure. The film also features some of Britain’s great exports including the likes of Steve Coogan, the magnificent Ben Kingsley and the hilarious Rick Gervais, who we have had the pleasure to work with.
Good Films commends the production team for successfully filming in such a complex location. With a crew of 200, the British museum was shot with heavy duty kit including a whopping 40 ton crane. Making things a little more interesting, the film featured live animals such as horses and even a capuchin monkey. All this could not have been done without the organization and professionalism of the British Museum’s film liaising team who have been praised hugely by the production team.
