Trailer Of The Week - Night At The Museum 3: Secret Of The Tomb

I must admit to having a slight soft spot for the first two Night At The Museum films; whilst being far from perfect, both offer some enjoyable family-oriented fantasy fun requiring low levels of brain activity. Based on the trailer for the third film however, it looks like the franchise has most certainly gone one installment too far. Every joke here falls flat, which makes you wonder just how bad the bits that didn't make it into the trailer are. The sequence with Rebel Wilson in particular is seriously painful. It's also a shame that this is to become the final live-action credit for the late Robin Williams, who at least seems to continue his spirited turn as Teddy Roosevelt quite well from the glimpses of the character that the trailer offers.
