Great Odin's raven: Two new 'Anchorman 2' trailers! -- VIDEO


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.


Official 'Anchorman 2' trailer will put you in a glass case of emotion -- VIDEO

Sixty percent of the time, this trailer works every time.

It has many leather-bound books, and it smells of rich mahogany.

It ate the whole wheel of cheese. (Heck, you’re not even mad — that’s amazing!)

It would like to extend to you an invitation to the pants party.

In short: It’s kind of a big deal. And so, without further ado — little Ham ‘n Eggs comin’ at ya! Hold on, people, hope you got your griddles…


Ron Burgundy's jazz flute is getting its long-deserved museum exhibit

Washington D.C.’s Newseum, an august institution dedicated to the history of journalism and the news media, is preparing to celebrate one of the most famous fake newsmen of all time, a man who had a voice that could make a wolverine purr and suits so fine they made Sinatra look like a hobo. The Newseum announced Tuesday that on November 14 it will open “Anchorman: The Exhibit,” featuring props and costumes from the 2004 Will Ferrell comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. And yes, Ron Burgundy’s jazz flute will be among them.

Lest you think that this is merely a way for the Newseum to cash in on the publicity surrounding the release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, opening Dec. 20, Cathy Trost, the museum’s vice president of exhibits and programs, promises there will be genuine educational value in the exhibit. “The exhibit explores the reality behind the humor of Anchorman and tracks the rise of personality-driven news formats in the 1970s,” Trost says. Stay classy, Newseum!

Check out the poster for the exhibit below:

Casting Net: Megan Fox reunites with Michael Bay; Plus Adam Sandler and James Marsden

• It’s a Transformers reunion: Megan Fox is joining Michael Bay‘s TMNT reboot. Bay, who is producing the movie, announced the news on his blog with the simple, one-sentence post, “TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!” EW has confirmed that Fox will play April O’Neil, the Turtles’ human friend, and that the movie is set to start shooting this spring. Fox has spoken publicly about her on-set friction with Bay – she once said the blockbuster mastermind is “like Hitler on his sets” – but now, lucky for Michelangelo and co. (or not so lucky, depending on whom you ask), it looks like Fox and Bay have patched things up. []

• Adam Sandler is switching up his schedule. His comic Western Ridiculous 6 will be delayed as a result of Sandler signing on to star in an untitled romantic comedy about a blended family. Drew Barrymore is being considered for the female lead. The film is being developed at Warner Bros., and will now also be produced by Sandler’s company, Happy Madison. [Variety, Deadline]


Paramount sets 'Anchorman' sequel release date for December 2013

Get ready for more bad hair, mustaches, funky leisure suits, and laughs.

Paramount Pictures has set the theater release date for the sequel to 2004’s Anchorman for Dec. 20, 2013.

Will Ferrell will be back as deep-voiced newsman Ron Burgundy, along with Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner in the comedy directed by script co-writer Adam McKay. McKay has hinted that the sequel will have whole song sequences, and we can only imagine Ferrell’s thick Burgundy mustache fluttering in the breeze during a diva number backed by the Channel 4 News gang.

'Anchorman 2' director teases plot: 'We have some songs already written'


The script for Anchorman 2 isn’t even finished yet, but that won’t director-cowriter Adam McKay from shamelessly teasing us with ambient plot points from the hotly anticipated comedy sequel. In an exclusive chat with Indiewire, McKay notes that the film was originally developed as a Broadway musical, which means that some songs have already been written for the movie. They will have “whole song sequences,” he promises, and also hints that the musical sequences will “have a little more movement” than the musical numbers in Anchorman 1 and Step Brothers. (Pause to imagine a full-scale Busby Berkeley number, with dancers modeling leisure suits and grody pornstaches.) READ FULL STORY

Christina Applegate reporting for 'Anchorman 2'

When the Channel 4 News Team reunited in the teaser trailer for Anchorman 2, there was one crucial member missing. Ron Burgandy’s non-male co-anchor, Veronica Corningstone. Rest assured, German-speaking residents of Whale’s Vagina San Diego, Christina Applegate will be back to joust and jest with our fearless leader. The actress’ spokesperson confirms a report from E!, who asked costar David Koechner about her return on the red carpet of Piranha 3DD.

Details about the new film’s plot are still sketchy, but Koechner said, “It’s set around the advent of the 24-hour news channel.” Obviously, that’s hard news — not 24-hour sports news, because that would be ridiculous. READ FULL STORY

'Anchorman 2': Watch the first teaser...and the second teaser!

I’m guessing that most of you didn’t see the teaser for Anchorman 2 that played in front of The Dictator, since, well, most of you didn’t see The Dictator. Luckily for you, the teaser has now hit the internet. Although it doesn’t reveal even the slightest indication of the sequel’s plot — since, well, they haven’t even started filming yet — it reunites the whole Channel 4 News Team. Anchorman Ron Burgundy; field reporter Brian Fontana; sportscaster Champ Kind; and mentally challenged weatherman Brick Tamland. It’s hard not to get a charge watching these guys back together — especially because, in the near-decade since Anchorman hit theaters, two of the actors have gone to become comedy supergods and Paul Rudd has become The Paul Rudd. Watch the teaser below:

Like that? Well bust this: There’s a different teaser making the rounds intended for foreign audiences, which is just a little bit racier. Click to the next page to watch the international, somewhat NSFW teaser.

'Anchorman II' poster revealed


This is happening, people. On the heels of the Anchorman II teaser that began playing before screenings of The Dictator last night, Paramount has released a teaser poster for its highly anticipated comedy sequel. Like that one-minute clip, the new image doesn’t reveal anything about the film’s plot — but seeing it might put fans in a glass case of emotion anyway. And if nothing else, it does seem to indicate that the new film’s official title is Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Click through to see Ron, Brick, Brian, and Champ once more… or, at least, part of them.


'Anchorman II': Adam McKay talks new teaser, reuniting the news team -- EXCLUSIVE

Though the plot of Anchorman II is still just an evolving idea in the delightfully delirious minds of Adam McKay and Will Ferrell, the return of Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 news team will take an enormous step towards reality tonight when a teaser for the 2013 sequel debuts in front of The Dictator. Filming the top-secret minute-long clip “was like the Manhattan Project — except without the possibility of destroying all of mankind,” writes McKay, in an e-mail. The teaser reintroduces Burgundy and his news team, and McKay writes that reuniting the gang was an afternoon delight. (No, not that “Afternoon Delight.”) READ FULL STORY
