Paramount Pictures has released a new clip from director Adam McKay’s comedy sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. The film finds the news team of Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), and Champion Kind (David Koechner) struggling to cope with the multitude of changes that come with the dawn of the 24-hour news era, particularly the evolving social norms. This new clip highlights Ron’s first encounter with the idea of a 24-hour news network, and his reaction is in no way disappointing.
