Paramount has released the new trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. The Channel 4 News Team, Ron (Will Ferrell), Brian (Paul Rudd), Champ (David Kochner), and Brick (Steve Carell) have moved from a whale’s vagina to New York to work at GNN, a 24-hour news network. While there does seem to be a little of a retread with Ron having friction with a co-worker (Meagan Good) who’s not only a woman but also black, this trailer still had me laughing non-stop. This looks like the Anchorman sequel I was hoping we’d get.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Paramount has gone heavy on promoting the movie with a museum exhibit, Ron Burgundy’s autobiography, Dodge Durango commercials, and a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor. As for the film, it also stars Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Dylan Baker, Greg Kinnear, and Harrison Ford. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens December 20th. [Update: We’ve now added the also-hilarious international trailer.]
