Night at the Museum to Exhibit on DVD

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM, the box office smash comedy with vfx from Rhythm & Hues, Rainmaker Animation & Visual Effects, The Orphanage and Lola Visual Effects, comes to DVD on April 24 in a two-disc Special Edition (Fox Home Ent., $34.98).

Ben Stiller (DODGEBALL, MEET THE PARENTS, THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY) stars as Larry Daley, an unlucky, yet hopeful dreamer who takes a job as a graveyard-shift security guard at the famous museum. When it closes at night, Larry soon learns that things are not what they seem when a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton wants to play fetch, an Easter Island monolith talks to him and Attila The Hun attacks. With the museum denizens loose and not wanting to lose his job, Larry turns to a re-animated wax figure of President Theodore Roosevelt (played by Oscar-winner Robin Williams) to help save the museum. NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM also stars Paul Rudd (THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN), Dick Van Dyke and Mickey Rooney.
