Nearly a decade has passed since we’ve last seen Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 news team in action. The sequel to the quotable and flat-out hilarious Anchorman is finally on its way and a new trailer and teaser poster have arrived online earlier today to prove it. Check out the trailer and teaser poster below.
With the 70’s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Also back for more are Ron’s co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) – All of whom won’t make it easy to stay classy…while taking New York’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.
I’ll say it. Anchorman is one of the best comedies I’ve ever seen. It’s extremely quotable and a lot of fun to watch. It’s very self-aware and is memorable. I just can’t say that for a lot of the comedies to come out in recent years. While I have a strange feeling that it may be impossible for the sequel to be better than the first, it’s bound to be just as good.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues arrives in theaters on December 20th. In the mean time, you stay classy.
