Crystal, the capuchin monkey that walked off on all fours with the top prize Lifetime Diva Achievement Award at February's 2015 Pawscars, is the real breakout star in Night at the Museum Secret of the Tomb #NATM3 just released on Bluray and DVD. Don't get me wrong, the other stars of this major motion picture including Ben Stiller, the late great Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Rebel Wilson and Ricky Gervais are all really impressive, at the top of their games and shining bright here.

It's just that Crystal, who plays monkey boy Dexter in this film, keeps popping up and sticking out her tongue to upstage her human co-stars in this wacky, spirited comedy that previously wowed theater viewers on the big screen.


All of the viewing public's favorite museum heroes return in the final film in the triology Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. At the box office the NATM franchise was extremely popular, grossing more than a billion dollars altogether. Now, at last, this movie is ready to be enjoyed over and over again at home by kids, moms, dads and all others who love watching A-list actors, both of the human and monkey varieties.

As the final chapter of Night at the Museum unfolds, we come across Larry Daley (Stiller) and his brave buddies as they are off to London and The British Museum in a last ditch effort to save the magic that makes museum exhibits come to life. Along for the ride is wild and intelligent Crystal who plays guy monkey Dexter who you see sitting on Williams lap in the photo at the top of this post.

What's particularly special about this Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD release is that it comes with a Bonus Digital HD movie that you download (via Google Play, VUDU or Flixster) -- your choice of either the original Night at the Museum or Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.

Meeting Crystal the Monkey 

Getting to touch and hold this talented monkey as well as interact with her closeup was most definitely a highlight of working on this film project as a Fox Home Entertainment Insider ambassador. Even after the studio event, which my daughter-photographer Sarah Elspas and I attended together, Mandy Rodgers, Fox publicist for this feature film, can't stop saying, "I love that monkey."

What the viewing public may not know is that Crystal is a diva in her own right and on set she works for yogurt, mixed nuts and Nutella. In case you're wondering -- Yes, she does deserve all that red carpet treatment because her career accomplishments are impressive with the last five pictures she has worked on (including the entire Night at the Museum triology) having grossed more than $1.5 billion at the box office. And that doesn't even include the total receipts from all 20 feature films on her resume to date which most recently includes Russell Madness which, like NATM3 launched on Bluray and DVD on March 10th.

Pound for pound this 1' 7" tall little lady sure has out earned even the leading men. You'll see her prominently and I think you will be truly entertained throughout her latest adventures in Night at the Museum 3.
