The teaser trailer for Ben Stiller‘s “Night At “The Museum 2: Battle Of The Smithsonian” is being hosted exclusively at McDonald’s HappyMeal.com. The sneak peek brings in a slew of old and new characters, including Owen Wilson‘s Jedediah, Robin Williams‘ Teddy Roosevelt, Hank Azaria‘s villainous Kahmunrah, Amy Adams‘ Amelia Earhart and Bill Hader‘s General George Custer.
In the new movie, museum exhibits come to life, but this time at the Smithsonian in Washington, where filming included scenes shot at the National Air and Space Museum. The DC setting also filmed at the Lincoln Memorial – where Honest Abe will come to “life.”
So will General Custer, Albert Einstein and a giant squid that befuddles Ben Stiller’s Larry Daley as he searches for his pal museum pieces Octavius and Jedediah, who have been shipped there.
