The first official theatrical trailer for the much-anticipated Anchorman 2 sequel has finally hit the internet!!
We may not get to see any actual scenes from the movie, but what we do get to see are the men of our favourite news team being reintroduced to the world! They just want to say hello, and they all do it in their own personal, hysterical way…even Brick, who gets a little confused about the assignment.
Watch the trailer and GET EXCITED for the return being compared to that of McArthur, Jay-Z and even Jesus!
Oh, and don’t forget to stay classy!!
As a soon-to-be former journalism grad, I actually cannot wait for Anchorman 2 to come out. Like the true loser that I am, I’ve watched the first film countless of times to prepare myself for my TV news class. So forget Anderson Cooper, Ron Burgundy is my anchorman hero.
While Will Ferrell told the Huffington Post that they won’t start shooting the sequel until February, they plan to release the teaser before The Dictator. So, to my pleasant surprise, someone has graciously bootlegged this new teaser for all the world to see (well, until the studios take them down).
Watch below to see the greatest news team reassemble.
Ron Burgundy had a lot of
devastating helpful advice for Conan O’Brien last night. After announcing his arrival by impressively playing the flute “with the cats,” Will Ferrell he advised the late night host to fire his hairstylists, makeup artist and “gay wardrobe man,” and to go under the knife to fix his mess of a face.
“You look like someone put a bright red fright wig on a skeleton and chucked it out of a helicopter,” he said gravely. “I’m being kind right now.”
Luckily that wasn’t the only thing the douchey anchorman came in for. He also announced that he will be starring in Anchorman 2, slated for a 2013 release.
I’m glad Burgundy managed to sort that out with Paramount pictures as he needs an outlet to inflate his ego — the guy has no confidence. Burgundy marked his departure with another wicked flute solo on his way out, proving that he’s pretty much great at everything.
Will Ferrell broke the bad news that “Anchorman 2″ is unlikely to ever happen. Ferrell told Entertainment Weekly that the studio is not loving the idea, despite the enthusiasm of the cast.
“Well, you know, yeah, it’s a little peculiar,” Ferrell, 43, told EW. “On the one hand, [we were] being begged to do a sequel for such a long time, and then we finally came up with a concept that we liked, we talked to all the guys, and everyone was up for it. And then to get the reaction we got, yeah, it’s slightly puzzling to us. But you know what? It’s also their money. They get to do or not do whatever they want. So we’ll see. We’re still going back and forth. Maybe there is a solution. Or, I know in talking to [co-writer/director Adam McKay], if it never happens, then it never happens. And that’s fine, too. So we’ll just see.”
No doubt “Anchorman” was funny, but do you think it really needs a sequel? Is there really anything to build on?
