Night At The Museum’s hysterical historical figures send-off the playful T-Rex REXY on a seven-day cross-country game of fetch from New York to Los Angeles, just in time to celebrate Fox Home Entertainment’s April 24th DVD and Blu-ray Disc release. All the fun-filled after-hours antics will be available to take home and with the fun-loving fossil coming to towns across American, the nightly ritual becomes a party that’s not to be missed!
REXY’s pals from Night At The Museum including Attila the Hun, Enuits, Jebediah, Octavius, the Neanderthals, and others gave REXY farewell with a huge celebration in New York on the evening of April 17th. Journeying down New York’s great Broadway, through the nation’s Capitol, then blowing through the Windy City and across the Mighty Mississippi, through the Gateway to the West and over the Rocky Mountains, to the Golden Gate Bridge and hitting the Vegas Strip, the two-ton, 13 foot tall and 21 foot long REXY will travel over 3,000 miles on his trek across the country. During his journey, REXY will be seen from all angles traveling America’s highways on a huge flatbed truck chasing his beloved bone carried by a yellow HUMMER H2. REXY will be visiting several local history museums in various cities along the way, finally arriving at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County on April 24th.
REXY will make scheduled stops in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver, Las Vegas and San Francisco before landing in Los Angeles. Fans can follow REXY's trek via Yahoo! Maps and will be featured on Yahoo!
