Paramount has released a new poster for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues that gives fans a face full of Burgundy. The details for the on-going adventures of the Channel 4 News Team are still somewhat under beyond trying to triumph at New York’s 24-hour news channel, but that’s almost secondary to simply letting the actors do their thing. This poster recalls one of the more quotable (and easily taglined) parts of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy by reminding us that he’s kind of a big deal. I’m wondering if we’ll be seeing more character posters that play off quotes from the first movie. I wouldn’t mind a poster that’s a close-up of Brian Fantana’s face with the tagline, “It smells like the inside of a fake leg.”
Hit the jump to check out the poster, and come back tomorrow to see a new trailer that will hopefully contain the first footage from the film. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens December 20th, and stars Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Dylan Baker, Meagan Good, Greg Kinnear, and Harrison Ford.

Here’s the official synopsis for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues:
With the 70’s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Also back for more are Ron’s co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) – All of whom won’t make it easy to stay classy…while taking New York’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.
