If you’re a fan of the Anchorman series, you might want to take a few days off starting April 1st.  That’s because Paramount has just announced the Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Blu-ray and it’s loaded with awesome extras.  While I knew we’d get some cool stuff based on what director Adam McKay included with the first Anchorman Blu-ray, the sequel lifts the bar to another level.  Here’s a few of the highlights:

  • Three versions of the film—the original Theatrical Version, the Unrated Version and the Super-Sized R-Rated Version with 763 new jokes (the super-sized edition plays in theaters for one-week starting February 28th. More details here)
  • More than 90 minutes of deleted, extended and alternate scenes
  • Commentary by Adam McKay, Judd Apatow, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner
  • Line-O-Rama, Parts 1 & 2—Non-stop alternate lines from the film
  • Welcome to the Dolphin Show—Ron Burgundy takes on the crowd
  • Kench-O-Rama—Mashup of Kench Allenby’s most Australian moments
  • Cast Table Read
  • Anchorman 2: The Musical—A look at the musical sequel that almost was
  • Auditions—Featuring Meagan Good, Dylan Baker and Amy Poehler

And this isn’t everything, as the Blu-ray includes 4 hours of bonus content.  While Paramount has screwed the fans over a number of different ways with their recent home video releases (look at what they did for Star Trek: Into Darkness), I’m happy they’re including all these extras in the same place.  Hit the jump for the full list on the press release and click here to get it for $19.99 (which is 50% off on Amazon).
