The first official full-length trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues has just been released and it feels like everyone is slipping right back into character perfectly. Within the trailer we see the actual footage of the new film and how the Channel 4 News Team is adjusting the 1980s. I wouldn’t say there are any big laughs or spoilers this time around, but this trailer does seem to raise a few questions. Check out the trailer for Anchorman 2 after the break.
Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Champ Kind (David Koechner), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), and Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) are all back for another go. From the looks of things, taking on global news co-anchoring with Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) did not pan out too well for Ron Burgundy. And although the fearless four seem to have lost their way, the 1980s might just be the decade they were meant to report news on.
Few details have been revealed about the plot of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, but this first trailer gives a pretty good idea as to what we can expect. Entering the 1980s, a news producer has reached out to Ron Burgundy about a 24-hour news station, Global News Network (GNN) and wants his team to have a piece of
afternoon delight pie. Watch the trailer below:
A female Brick in the form of Kristen Wiig; feels forced to me along with the racial humor, but everything else seems to work. And we also get Baxter! The real question here is, what happened to Ms. Corningstone? It would appear that Ron has had a child with her, but there is a heavy focus on Meagan Good’s character whomever she is.
Also joining our fabulous news team in Anchorman 2 is Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson, Amy Poehler, Chris Parnell, Kanye West, Dylan Baker, Greg Kinnear, Fred Armisen, and many more.
Do you think this sequel is necessary – 60% of the time they work every time – or are you anxious for Rob Burgundy to hit the big screen once more?
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues was written by Will Ferrell and co-written and directed by Adam McKay. It hits theaters on Christmas Day 2013.
