A new trailer has been released for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Things have certainly changed for the news crew since Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Baxter’s still hanging around and Brick is as clueless as ever, but even though Veronica Corningstone makes an appearance, Ron seems to be pretty heavily into dating someone new. More challenges await the team as the network enters into a twenty-four hour news cycle and new youthful anchors threaten their place atop the pyramid. It’s not exactly what I expected for the first look at the sequel, but that’s not a bad thing. Bring on the scotch!
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Dylan Baker, Meagan Good, Greg Kinnear, and Harrison Ford. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens on December 20th.
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.
It was just a few years ago that Anchorman 2 was stuck in development hell, and now it’s getting its own museum exhibit. Paramount has announced that Anchorman: The Exhibit will open at Newseum in Washington, D.C. on November 14th to promote the upcoming sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Visitors will have the chance to be in an “Anchorman-themed TV spot at one of the Newseum’s Be a TV Reporter stations,” and receive an introduction from Ron Burgundy. The exhibit will contain costumes, the KVWN-TV anchor desk (perfect for photo ops), and props such as Arturo Mendez’ whip and Ron Burgundy’s jazz flute. “I’m literally trapped in a glass case of emotion,” said Ron Burgundy, commenting on his inclusion in the museum’s exhibit. No word yet if the exhibit will smell of rich mahogany.
Hit the jump for the press release. The exhibit will run until August 31, 2014. The film stars Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens December 20th.
Paramount Pictures has released a new teaser trailer for director Adam McKay’s sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Much like the initial teaser trailer that was unveiled before the film even began production, this trailer doesn’t show any actual footage. In fact, it actually looks like it may have been shot at the same time as that initial teaser, but it’s no less hilarious. We get individual greetings from Will Ferrell, David Koechner, Paul Rudd, and Steve Carell all in character, but unsurprisingly it’s Carell’s Brick who steals the show. This movie cannot get here fast enough.
Hit the jump to watch the new trailer. The film also stars Christina Applegate, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Dylan Baker, Meagan Good, Greg Kinnear, and Harrison Ford. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens December 20.
Filming on Anchorman: The Legend Continues is underway in Atlanta, and a new set photo has arrived from Piedmont Park. The set photo has an image of Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) sitting on a park bench with a small child, who may or may not be the anchorman’s son. Back in April 2012, director Adam McKay said they were still writing the script, but there was a key phrase: “custody battle”. With that unruly hair, it’s tough to believe that the boy could be any son of Ron Burgundy, but it looks like that’s the case. It’s also a shame that things didn’t work out with Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), but then again, she is a smelly pirate hooker.
Hit the jump to check out the set photo. The film also stars Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Greg Kinnear, Josh Lawson, Dylan Baker, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Meagan Good, and Harrison Ford. Anchorman: The Legend Continues opens December 20th.
The cast for director Adam McKay’s sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues has grown by two, even though production on the film is already underway in Atlanta. Deadline reports that Greg Kinnear and Josh Lawson (The Campaign, House of Lies) have signed on to the follow-up in a couple of unspecified roles. They join returning castmembers Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate as well as newcomers Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Meagan Good, and Dylan Baker. Kinnear doesn’t get to flaunt his comedic prowess enough, in my opinion, so I’m looking forward to seeing him play around in the Anchorman universe. The film hits theaters later this year on December 20th.
In case you’re still in shock over yesterday’s fantastic news that Harrison Ford has joined the cast of the sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues, some photographic proof has popped up online proving that Ford is indeed starring in the comedy. A couple of new photos from the Atlanta set have surfaced, giving us our fist look at Ford’s “legendary anchorman” character as well as new looks at Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy and Christina Applegate’s Veronica Corningstone. It’s nothing too mind-blowing, but it’s most definitely neat to see Ford in character walking alongside the one and only Ron Burgundy.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images. Directed by Adam McKay, the film also stars Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, Meagan Good, and Dylan Baker. Anchorman: The Legend Continues opens on December 20th.
Filming on Anchorman 2 is underway, but the flick continues to add great actors to its cast. THR is reporting that Harrison Ford has signed on to play “a legendary newscaster a la Tom Brokaw.” Ford has settled comfortably into playing supporting roles lately, and he’ll be sharing the screen this year in the upcoming films 42, Paranoia, and Ender’s Game. The size of his role in Anchorman 2 or how it will factor into the plot is unknown as details on the story remain scarce. However, we know that James Marsden will play Ron’s (Will Ferrell) nemesis, and that Ron is angling to go to New York City, which “is the holy grail for all newsmen,” according to director and co-writer Adam McKay. We can also look out for Kristen Wiig to play a love interest for the lovably legally-retarded Brick Tamland (Steve Carell).
The film also stars Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, Meagan Good, Dylan Baker, and John C. Reilly. Anchorman: The Legend Continues opens December 20th. [Update: The first set photos have leaked online. Hit the jump to check them out.]
Steve Carell wore a nice pair of slacks when he stopped by NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to announce the start of production on Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Currently setting up to shoot in Atlanta, the sequel will reunite San Diego’s favorite news team almost ten years after their original outing. This time around, director Adam McKay plans to take the crew to New York City. I can only imagine how Brick Tamland will respond.
Starring Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, James Marsden, Kristen Wiig, Meagan Good and Dylan Baker, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens December 20th.

We’ve got a couple of interesting casting stories to share this evening. First up, it appears that a frequent collaborator of director Adam McKay and star Will Ferrell’s may be making an appearance in the upcoming sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Production on that film begins in Atlanta next week, and Bleeding Cool has a copy of a casting call sent to Atlanta agencies asking for people who look like John C. Reilly and have the same build as the actor. It appears they’re attempting to nab a stand-in for Reilly, which means he’s most likely making at least a brief appearance in the follow-up.
If the first film’s bounty of familiar faces is any indication, I imagine this won’t be the last cameo appearance we hear about for Anchorman 2. Hopefully they manage to keep at least a couple of them secret. Hit the jump for casting news concerning Syriana writer/director Stephen Gaghan’s long-awaited follow-up film, Candy Store.

New additions to the cast include Kristen Wiig as a love interest for Carell’s Brick Tamland and James Marsden as a fellow anchorman and “Ron Burgundy’s nemesis,” but plot details thus far have been few and far between.
