movies.ieThis week, the final instalment in the NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM trilogy is released in Irish cinemas. The film, which stars Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Dan Stevens and Ricky Gervais, sees Stiller’s character Larry travel to the British Museum to unlock the secrets of the mysterious and magical tablet of Ahkmanrah and save the lives of the museum’s inhabitants.

Rebel Wilson is a new addition to the team; the actress plays Tilly, a guard at the British Museum and brings her trademark awkward humour to the film. gathered together some facts about the actress, for your reading pleasure.

1. Yes, that is her real name
Rebel was named after a singer at her parents’ wedding, but used her middle names – Melanie Elizabeth – while in school, to avoid being teased. Rebels siblings are named Ryot, Liberty and Annachi.

2. Smart and funny
Rebel has a law degree from the prestigious University of New South Wales. She graduated in 2009. Wilson’s breakout role came two years later in BRIDESMAIDS.

3. Dream it… Or hallucinate it; whichever works
Rebel was a Rotary International Youth Ambassador for Australia and was based in South Africa for a year. While there, she contracted malaria and had hallucinations in which she saw herself as an actress who had won an Oscar. This convinced her to pursue a career as an actress.

4. Organized Fun
In 2012, it was announced that Wilson would write and star in the TV show SUPER FUN NIGHT, a comedy that follows three friends on a quest to have fun every Friday night. Sadly, the show was cancelled by ABC after just one season.

5. Roommates
As of 2012, Wilson shares an apartment in West Hollywood with English comedian Matt Lucas. The pair played brother and sister in BRIDESMAIDS.

6. Who doesn’t love Pizza?
Wilson’s big break in her native Australia came with the TV show PIZZA, which led to a spin off movie titled FAT PIZZA. Wilson played Toula in the series between 2003 and 2007.

7. Famous Footsteps
When she moved to the US, Rebel performed with the famous Upright Citizens Brigade improv troupe. Other famous alumni of the group include Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch and Adam McKay.

8. Sell it
The aggressive, hilarious romantic storyline between Bumper (Adam DeVine) and Rebel Wilson’s character Fat Amy in PITCH PERFECT was not in the original script. DeVine and Wilson often went off on improvised tangents when filming, and DeVine would often try to kiss her. The two then devised a back story for the characters and their relationship that was so funny, the filmmakers kept it in the finished film.

9. Pain? Or Gain?
Rebel Wilson, an avid nunchucks user, brought her own with her for the sex scene in PAIN & GAIN. Wilson said she brought them to try and spice things up!

10. Next…
Coming up next, Wilson stars in PITCH PERFECT 2, and will lend her voice to a character in KUNG FU PANDA 3.

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB is released in Irish cinemas on December 19th 2014

Posted on December 22, 2014   Categories: News and RumoursLeave a Comment – The Australian actress had to kiss Ben’s alter ego, Neanderthal Laa, in the upcoming comedy film and claims his lips tasted odd.

Speaking at a press conference to promote the film in London today (15.12.14), she told BANG Showbiz: “I tasted a lot of Ben Stiller. He tasted a lot like rubbing alcohol.

She jokingly added: “He was very precious about our kissing, it was quite romantic and passionate.”

Stiller – who as well as playing Laa also reprises his role as museum night guard Larry Daley for a third time – defended the taste of his lips, saying: “I did have prosthetics lips on.”

Wilson also claimed they were lots of smooching scenes that they couldn’t use in the final cut because they were too graphic.

She quipped: “There was some racier stuff between me and Laa which had to be cut. If an R-rated version is released then (you’ll see it). I loved Laa’s muscles which you don’t get to see when Ben plays Larry, because he’s wearing a jacket all the time but when he plays Laa it’s like, arms out, they’re just there.”

Stiller again interjected, saying: “We were trying to push the boundaries of the movie … (Those muscles) were when I was in character training six hours a day…”

Other cast members at the event included Owen Wilson, Sir Ben Kingsley, Dan Stevens and the film’s director Shawn Levy.

‘Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb’ is in cinemas from December 19.

Posted on December 16, 2014   Categories: News and RumoursLeave a Comment – Sequined sensation!

Rebel Wilson twinkled on the red carpet, and the glitzy frock in question barely put a dent in her wallet. The actress and savvy shopper, 28, attended the Night at The Museum: Secret of The Tomb premiere on Monday, Dec. 15, in an ASOS Curve Collection dress that cost less than $100. The flattering find featured a black draped top with a bold sequined skirt and cost just $66 at

The Aussie actress recently stirred rumors that she could be taking over for Ben Stiller if there were to be any other sequels. “If I see the money truck, then I might agree to [make a fourth movie], she told Today show’s Matt Lauer on Dec. 10. “I’m in it for the art and the awards… and art..”

Wilson has always embraced her figure and encourages fans to do the same — regardless of size. “I don’t really care what I look like that much, and I think women out there should just be happy with the way they look,” she told Extra TV in 2013.

“They shouldn’t really try to conform to any kind of stereotype. Just be happy and hopefully healthy.”

Posted on December 12, 2014   Categories: Kung Fu Panda , News and Rumours , ProjectsLeave a Comment – With the buzz swirling around Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, following the first trailer that debuted just two weeks ago, DreamWorks Animation has decided to push Kung Fu Panda 3 from December 23, 2015 to March 18, 2016. The animated sequel was originally slated to open just five days after Star Wars: The Force Awakens’s December 18, 2015 debut. Kung Fu Panda 3 would have also debuted just two days before a quartet of Christmas Day 2015 releases including Lionsgate’s Dirty Grandpa, 20th Century Fox’s Joy, Paramount’s Mission: Impossible 5 and New Regency’s The Revenant.

Kung Fu Panda 3 will now square off against Lionsgate’s The Divergent Series: Allegiant: Part 1. DreamWorks Animation’s Boss Baby is already scheduled for release on March 18, 2016, which means this project will have to find a new release date in the near future. DreamWorks Animation also has Home (March 27, 2015) arriving next year, with another project, B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations, currently seeking a new release date, after DWA yanked the comedy from its June 5, 2015 slot last month.

No plot details have been released for Kung Fu Panda 3, but it will bring back franchise stars Jack Black (Po), Dustin Hoffman (Shifu), Angelina Jolie (Tigress), Seth Rogen (Mantis), Lucy Liu (Viper), David Cross (Crane) and James Hong (Mr. Ping). New casting additions include Bryan Cranston, Rebel Wilson and Mads Mikkelsen, although nothing is known about their characters.

In related release date news, Warner Bros. has moved director Andy Serkis’ The Jungle Book: Origins back almost a full year, from October 21, 2016 to October 6, 2017, where it currently has the date all to itself. The move means that this will open almost exactly two years after Disney’s The Jungle Book, which Jon Favreau is directing. To fill in for The Jungle Book: Origins, Warner Bros. has moved Geostorm from March 25, 2016 to October 21, 2016, which only has an untitled Blumhouse horror film slated for release.

Kung Fu Panda 3 comes to theaters March 18th, 2016 and stars Bryan Cranston, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, Rebel Wilson, Lucy Liu, Mads Mikkelsen, Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman. The film is directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson.

Posted on December 12, 2014   Categories: News and Rumours , Night at the Museum 3 , ProjectsLeave a Comment – Rebel Wilson has director Shawn Levy’s daughters to thank for helping her land a role in the third installment of the Night at the Museum franchise.

The Pitch Perfect star reveals Levy’s daughters begged their dad to cast her in the film after becoming huge fans of her movie work.

She says, “I think Shawn Levy, who directed the whole trilogy, he has quite a few teenage daughters, who had seen me in Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids and so they did say they wanted me in the movie, so I thank them a lot.”

After landing the role of a British Museum guard, Wilson felt she had another reason to celebrate – the cast.

She says, “It’s an amazing ensemble cast in the Night at the Museum movies. You got Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais and of course, the late and very great Robin Williams, so just to join that ensemble is so much fun.”

She later adds, “I just love being in this because where else can you be so funny and have so much action and great special effects.”
