Larry Daley, the former security guard at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, is facing his biggest challenge yet. While he's used his exhibit friends coming to life at night, they are normally very well-behaved during the new sunset opening hours, but it seems something's started making them a little crazy. The magic of The Tablet of Ahkmenrah seems to be waning, putting them at risk of being still forever. Larry must find a way to restore the tablet before it's too late, and so he decides to venture to the Natural History Museum in London to find out how to fix it.

An LA judge is to decide the fate of the late Mickey Rooney’s remains after the actor passed away on Sunday. At the moment, the choice is between leaving Rooney’s remains with his lawyer, Michael Augustine, or his estranged eighth wife.

A massive movie draw back in his 1930's and '40s heyday, Rooney became one of the highest earning stars in Hollywood but was a product of the industry's old studio system and therefore was not entitled to hefty royalty payments from his extensive filmography. He felt it was appropriate to bequeath Aber, who had been his caretaker, all he had left. Rooney reportedly felt that his children were in better financial situations than the actor and ruled that he did not want any relative handling his final affairs.
