Ben Stiller switches museums, but the exhibits still come alive, in this week’s FOXLight DVD release round-up. This time, Stiller is in D.C. in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. And an epic battle brews over to fill the halls of the world’s largest museum. Helping history reanimate again is Hank Azaria, Ricky Gervais, and Robin Williams.
It’s man versus machine once again in Terminator: Salvation, with Christian Bale as John Connor and Sam Worthington as Marcus Wright, a mystery man from the past whose last memory was on Death Row before waking up in Skynet-ruled 2018. Also starring Bryce Dallas Howard and series original Linda Hamilton.
And Paper Heart is a pseudo-documentary/drama/fantasy where skeptic Charlyne Yi travels the country in search of love advice, only to find fellow skeptic Michael Cera who just might be her soulmate.
