Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
When the Museum of Natural History is closed for upgrades and
renovations, the museum pieces are moved into federal storage at the
famous Washington Museums.
The centerpiece of the film will be bringing to life the Smithsonian Institution,
which houses the world's largest museum complex with more than 136 million items in
its collections, ranging from the plane Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams) flew on her
non-stop solo flight across the Atlantic and Al Capone's (Jon Bernthal)
rap sheet and mug shot to Dorothy's ruby slippers,
Fonzie's jacket from Happy Days, the still from M*A*S*H and Archie Bunker's lounge
chair from All in the Family.
With a forwarded resume, Larry (Ben Stiller) becomes another caretaker at
the Smithsonian, where Kahmunrah, an evil Pharaoh will come to life with the
reestablishing of a tablet as a magical force in the museum bringing the old exhibits
(Such as Theodore Roosevelt and Dexter) and new exhibits (like General Custer and Al
Capone) back to life, and in conflict with each other.
Larry enlists the help of Amelia Earheart, who he develops a romantic interest in,
and together they try to put everything back in order.
