Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian is the second in the 20th Century Fox movie series about a night guard named Larry Daley who discovers that the exhibits in a New York museum can come to life after sundown. Ben Stiller plays Larry and is joined by most of the cast from the previous film including Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt and Mizuo Peck as Sacagawea. Battle of the Smithsonian was released in May of 2009. The story begins when Larry finds out his museum friends are being sent into storage beneath the Smithsonian. Larry, who had previously left his job as a night guard, once again becomes tangled up in their world when the entire Smithsonian starts coming to life. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian differs from its predecessor in that Larry and the exhibits are not fighting antagonists from the normal world. Instead, they battle against an evil alliance of newly brought to life wax figures from the Smithsonian. The villains of this movie include an ancient pharaoh, played by Hank Azaria, Al Capone, played by Jon Bernthal, and Ivan the Terrible, played by Christopher Guest. A new comedic character is also introduced in Bill Hader playing General Custer. Amy Adams also costars as Amelia Earhart and, in some ways, serves as a love interest for Larry. However, this movie, unlike the first in the series, pays very little attention to Larry’s personal life and concentrates more on the crazy and sometimes comedic situations and adventures the museum exhibits get him into. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian received a PG rating for mild language and action. The movie was directed by Shawn Levy and was written by Thomas Lennon.
