I could waste your time with a preamble filled with Anchorman quotes, or I get right to the good stuff: Paramount has released two new trailers for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Both clips are chock-full of the gleeful absurdity that made the first movie such a delight, as well as a few more hints about the film’s closely guarded plot. (There’s more here than we got in trailer number 1 — including answers about what happened to Veronica and Ron’s relationship.)
As our story begins, Ron (Will Ferrell) has, once again, been eclipsed by his smarter, more capable ladylove Veronica (Christina Applegate). Thankfully for him, new 24-hour global news network GNN is looking for a few good men to join its New York City ranks — providing the perfect opportunity for Ron and the old Channel 4 news team (Paul Rudd, Dave Koechner, and Steve Carell) to get the old band back together. There, they’ll bring a new sense of fluffy fun to a stuffy network run by no-nonsense Linda Jackson (Meagan Good) — who might just be the one lady who can help Ron mend his broken heart.
