Witherspoon in Night at the Museum 2

ReeseWitherspoon.jpgMy good god, I can hardly believe that there's going to be a Night at the Museum sequel, yes I know it made a lot of money, but surely it didn't make so much money that they could be considering a sequel?

Well it seems they are, and can you even believe that Reese Witherspoon is set to star in the sequel? The sequel that knocked James Cameron's Avatar off it's release spot?

That's insane, it really is. However it's perhaps not so insane when you read the takings from Variety through Jo Blo, US $252 million, yes, you read that right.

Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian is set for a May 22nd release, 2009.

According to the story Ben Stiller is set to return because he hasn't really worked hard enough on killing his own career, and Reese Witherspoon is in negotiations to co-star as Amelia Earhart.

With the title of Night at the Museum 2: Escape from the Smithsonian, what are the bets that the live exhibits escape and run riot through the city?

Oh dear this really pains me that profit margins own so much of Hollywood, and that we're so willing to accept this money grabbing rubbish, more to the point these big names stars are so keen to leap on board such films. It seems we're all hungry for cash, although we seem to be hungry to give it away.



I literally spit my tea when I saw this came out of my headline animator. At the end of the day, it's all about the money isn't it?

I didnt think Reese would sell out this early. Saying that I thought Night at the Museum wasn't all that bad. I think I gave it a 3/5. (Please dont lose respect for me!) HAHAHA

Oh no respect lost at all, in the end it's all about personal opinion isn't it? I have my fair share of unliked films on my like list...this just isn't one of them!

Maybe if this sequel is again successful they can branch outside of America and do Night at the Louvre or even Night at the British Museum.

Just wanting to be funny as you can see. :D

Ha! I like that, and the sad thing is I can see it happening!

Reese Witherspoon is currently the highest paid actress here in Hollywood and she picks a project like this??? -sigh- It's criminal.

Though I don't think it warrants a sequel I did enjoy the first one .. I do wonder if it's because I watched it on Boxing Day. It's always a celebration to watch a film the day after the one day of the year that the cinema was shut.
