First Look: Ben Stiller and Amy Adams in ‘Night at the Museum 2′

Night at the Museum 2

USA Today has posted some first look photos from Night at the Museum 2, the family friendly follow-up to the hit 2006 film directed by Shawn Levy. The sequel will see the return of Ben Stiller as Larry Daley, a museum security guard who comes face to face with history when all of the museum’s displays come to life. The story will follow Larry to the Smithsonian, where he meets a host of new characters including Amelia Earhart (Amy Adams), General George Armstrong Custer (Bill Hader) and The Office’s Craig Robinson as one of the Tuskegee Airmen. It will also see the return of Owen Wilson and Steve Coogan asĀ  Jedediah and Octavius respectively.

Have a look at some of the photos below, the rest of which can be seen over at USA Today.

Another notable casting choice is Eugene Levy (American Pie, A Mighty Wind), who will play Einstein. Yes, that Einstein. Christopher Guest will also star as “Ivan the Terrible.” Sounds like fun if you ask me.

Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian will hit theaters on May 22, 2009.
