Night at the museum 2 – Could it be good?

source: usatoday.com

A whole batch of new pics from Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian have emerged, promising a much funnier installment than the original.

Night at the Museum grossed a phenomenal $575 million worldwide, so a sequel was inevitable. I thought the concept of the first film was pretty interesting, but it really wasn’t executed in the best possible way. It was a shame, considering the high level of comic pedigree attached (Ben Stiller, Ricky Gervais, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Robin Williams, Dick van Dyke).

However, it’s hard not to get excited for the sequel, which reunites the original cast with even more brilliant comic actors. Enjoy the photos below and ask yourself: Should we get our hopes up for the sequel?

The brilliant Bill Hader is getting closer and closer to a leading role by starring as General Custer. You may recognise him as Officer Slater in Superbad, or for his work in Saturday Night Live.

The beautiful Amy Adams brings some good old fashioned class to the game, starring as missing aviator Amelia Earhart. Considering she starred in the last great live-action family film (Enchanted) she might end up being MVP.

Ricky Gervais is back as museum curator Dr McPhee. But can he please be in it for more than 3 minutes this time?

Jonah Hill also has a cameo as a Smithosonian guard. Hill and Stiller competing to see who is the king of awkward improvised banter? I’d pay to see that.

Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian is directed by Shawn Levy, and also stars Hank Azaria, Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy. The film opens May 21st in Australia.
