Battle of the Smithsonian International Trailer

night-at-the-museum-battle-for-the-smithsonianAll my instincts tell me “Terminator Salvation” will utterly wallop “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian” for Memorial Day box office bragging rights, but I’m beginning to have doubts.  It’s a family holiday with start-of-the-season BBQs and trips to the cemetery to pay our respects to those gone before us. Judging by the box office receipts for oh, I don’t know, the last 30 years, many families count a trip to the theater as a tradition. Considering, even though it’s PG-13, “Terminator Salvation” isn’t what you’d call a family film, perhaps NATM2 will be the box office champ. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised to see these two movies literally neck-in-neck financially when all is said and done.

One thing is certain: adding Amy Adams (“Doubt”), Jonah Hill (“Superbad”), Bill Hader (“Adventureland”) and Hank Azaria (“Run Fatboy Run”) to compliment Ben Stiller’s shtick is definitely a plus. Frankly, the cast additions are probably the biggest reason I will catch this with my kids.

Check out the international trailer below for “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.” It’s got 30 percent more creamy nougat than its domestic previews. What do you think? Does this look too jam packed, or will this sequel be better than the original?

  • Terminator is pg-13?
    /slits wrists.

  • Yes, sir, for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and language. Whatever the hell that means.

  • Die Hard was PG-13 and that sucker was hard-hittin’ action. Pg-13 isn’t a death sentence… it’s a money maker. Yeee-haw!

  • PS- I daresay this was a holiday release last time around. They should have kept it there. It’s obviously counter-programming, but I don’t think it’s going to tie Terminator. Of course, I’ll eat crow and cat poop if I’m wrong.

  • You know what is a death sentence? A tiny net, that’s what.

  • But there’s always a solution, Andy: reverse the capture method.

  • I am about 1,000 times more excited to see NATM2 then Terminator! This has become even more true ever since the Bale tirade heard ’round the world. I just can’t see him playing the inspirational John Connor who is supposed to inspire a nation…what is he going to do against the machines? swear profusely for 20 minutes about how they ruined our world and then go pout in his trailer? It may just be me, but every time I see him now I am just waiting for him to burst into profanity….

  • Oh, Sandra. Hahahaha! He’s just a man. A man with faults just like anyone else. Just a man, standing in front of an audience, asking them to love him.

  • Yeah, I don’t have a problem with Bale’s behavior. We’ve all had meltdowns at work, just most of us don’t have ours recorded and then played over and over again by a ratings-humping media hell bent on sacrificing anyone and everyone for a buck. He knows he acted like a dick, he admitted it and I’m sure he and the guy he was lambasting are just fine and dandy relationship-wise. I suspect Bale won’t get any negative fallout at the box office for his little tirade.

  • I think most people would be really surprised if they gained more insight into the film making process.These kinds of meltdowns are very frequent and a simple result of a collaborative medium and all kinds of pressure. Unfortunately, they’re seldom taped and revealed except by agenda, so you don’t hear many of them– when one comes out, there’s a lot of vilification.
