If, like me, you were puzzled by the amount of attention given to Tom Cruise’s Les Grossman during the MTV Movie Awards last weekend, then today’s press release from Paramount, announcing a film about the character [though treating him very much like an actual Hollywood heavyweight] should clear that up. The frequently hilarious press release follows the jump.
Larry Daley is a guard at the Museum of Natural History in NYC. He takes on an adventure we will never forget when the museum’s exhibits and animals come to life. A few years later, he leaves the museum life behind and becomes the CEO and inventor of Daley Devices. We meet him on the set of his informercial promoting a glow-in-the-dark flashlight with George Foreman.
Larry Daley has the life he always wanted but something is missing. He decides to revisit his old stomping ground at the museum. Only to find out that the museum is undergoing a change to the 21st Century. The museum will now have holographic displays that will interact with the vistors while the original exhibits will be sent down to the Federal Archives in Washington, DC for permanent storage. He decides to spend one more night at the museum to say goodbye to his old friends before they head to DC. All is well until he receives a call from Jedidah informing him that Ahkmenrah’s brother has come back to life to seek a tablet that holds power to control the world.
Night at the Museum was an unexpected hit in 2006; so naturally, they decided to make a sequel – Battle at the Smithsonian. That’s the bad news. The good news is that the sequel is better than the original.
As with the original, Battle at the Smithsonian exists, primarily, to set up a string of stunts and FX that will dazzle and amaze, while a small group of characters [most of whom are statues come to life] get a chance to play hero. The plot finds Larry Daley [Ben Stiller] in a good place as the inventor/head of Daley Devices [“Glow in the Dark Flashlight is one of mine,” he says with a certain amount of pride]. Business is good; Larry is now filthy, stinking well-off – and he just might have a deal in the works with Wal-Mart. But is he happy?
