night at the musem robin williamsConsidering everything that has come to light in the past couple months, this new trailer may be a little bit tough to watch. The world was shocked and saddened when Robin Williams took his own life on August 11, 2014. Recent reports have confirmed that he was suffering from a multitude of ailments, such as hallucinations, Lewy body dementia, Parkinson's, paranoia, depression ... such a tragic end for a talented man who made so many of us laugh. Now a second trailer for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb has just been released in what will be Williams' final role.

In the film, Williams reprises his hilarious role as Teddy Roosevelt. It's such a shame to think that he was going through so much while working on this project, but a movie like this is quite an appropriate send-off for Williams, don't you think? He even celebrated his last birthday with his costar, Crystal the monkey, back in July.

If you care about the plot at all, apparently the magical tablet that was able to bring all of them to life is losing its power. Ben Stiller, who reprises his role as Larry Daley, flies everyone to the Natural History Museum in London to try to find some answers. You may also recognize Octavius (Steve Coogan), cowboy Jedediah (Owen Wilson), security guard Tilly (Rebel Wilson), and Sir Lancelot (Dan Stevens), among many more funny stars.
