Watch the official trailer for 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.' The latest trailer finally gives clues about the plot. The film stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, James Marsden and Kristen Wiig. 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,' is slated to open December 20, 2013. After Will Ferrell announced Anchorman 2:The Legend Continues as Ron Burgundy on Conan, we were teased mercilessly for over a year with leaked scenes, pictures of stars making cameos in the film and a very short trailer that hardly told us anything. Now the team behind Anchorman 2 has finally coughed up a full-length trailer with what might be called a plot!
The film, okay, the "legend" of Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) picks up in the '80s, when the news anchor is invited to join a 24-hour cable news channel. Ron--mustache intact--proudly proclaims in the trailer, "I'm going to do the thing that God put Ron Burgundy on earth to do: have salon quality hair and read the news!" There's even a new word coined that we love: Burgundy-er!
Ron's old San Diego news team, Brick (Steve Carell), Brian (Paul Rudd) and Champ (David Koechner), are now hanging out in NYC. Mix in a TV news "prince" (James Marsden) and Kristen Wiig as the woman Brick's been waiting for with Ron's talent for the saying the totally inappropriate, and you end up with shock and awe. Our favorite exchange in the clip comes from Steve and Kristin, as she responds to his line, "Your hair looks like wet popcorn," with "I like the parts of your face that are covered with skin."
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is slated to open December 20, 2013.
Happy holidays, indeed.
