WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

At New York’s Natural History Museum, the magical Tablet of Ahkmenrah brings its figures to life at night. However, when the tablet’s powers suddenly start to die out, security guard Larry Daley (Stiller) spans the globe with old friends, including the waxwork figure of Theodore Roosevelt (Williams) and miniature cowboy and Roman soldier figures Jedediah (Wilson) and Octavius (Coogan), and new friends, from the dashing Sir Lancelot (Stevens) to excitable security guard Mindy (Wilson), in an epic quest to save the magic from disappearing forever…
