Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, bought history to life in the heart of London’s West End on Monday night, when the famous Bond Street statues of Sir Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt, roused from their years of silence to talk politics, current affairs and life on the bench. The astonishing technological feat was to mark the launch of Night at the Museum 2, released on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday 9th November and offered passers-by a unique and educational evening’s entertainment.

The illusion that Churchill and Roosevelt were deep in conversation was created using HMC Interactive’s patented Incision™ Technology. A team of digital artists spent two months planning the stunt which used a series of light projections to give the impression that the statue’s eyes and mouths were moving. The voices were provided by lookalike actors and the script written by renowned writer Jon Holmes who writes with Jon Culshaw.

Night at the Museum 2 is out now on DVD and Blu-ray.
