Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009)

Action, Adventure, Family, Fantasy (PG)

Shawn Levy directs the sequel of his hit film ‘Night at the Museum’. Night guard Larry Daley (Ben Stiller), now a successful entrepreneur, returns to the Museum of Natural History to visit his friends–the exhibits that come to life at night–only to learn that they are being shipped off into deep storage at the Smithsonian Institution. To make matters worse, the exhibits at the Smithsonian, including the pharaoh Kahmunrah (Hank Azaria), are suddenly coming to life–and they aren’’t at all happy about their new visitors. Determined to save his friends, Larry rushes to Washington, D.C., and makes his way into the inner workings of the largest museum complex in the world while Kahmunrah recruits the likes of Ivan the Terrible (Christopher Guest), Napoleon (Alain Chabat), and Al Capone (Jon Bernthal). Larry, meanwhile, finds himself with spunky Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams) as a co-conspirator and love interest, and General Custer (Bill Hader) leading the battle for the Smithsonian.

This week is a really good week for DVD and Blu-ray releases with Night at the Museum 2 and Terminator Salvation coming out. I enjoyed Terminator Salvation in theaters and now I’m looking forward to all the extras that may be released with the disc. I haven’t seen Night at the Museum, but I enjoyed the first one.

Are you going to buy any of these releases?
