Longer Anchorman 2 to hit UK cinemas with 763 all-new jokes & new trailer
Story by Jack Foley
AN ALL-new cut of the hit film Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, starring Will Ferrell, is to be released in cinemas in the UK and the US from the week beginning February 28, 2014, for one-week only.
The new version of the film, titled Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues… Continued, will feature up to 763 entirely new jokes from legendary anchorman Ron Burgundy and America’s favorite 24-hour global news team. The film is now rated 15.
Writer/director Adam McKay commented: “When my editor told me we had a whole different version of the movie that was more than two hours long with nearly 800 new jokes, I was shocked. But when Paramount said they were actually going to put it in theatres, I did a 1950’s spit take. If you’re a hardcore Anchorman fan, go see this. If you’re not, stay very far away.”
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, a sequel to 2004’s cult film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, was released in theatres on December 18, 2013 and has earned more than $170 million at the worldwide box office to date.
