Almost a year has passed since the arrival of the first teaser trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues. With the film’s theatrical opening still seven months away, the forces that be have graced us with yet another short, sweet and typically Burgundian teaser trailer. Now online, you can check it out below.
This latest offering has more of a promo vibe dominating it, similar to the first clip released last May. A true teaser in every sense, it re-introduces Ron’s team of dimwits and wannabe casanovas. Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Steve Carell step up to the plate, delivering a round of classy one-liners. Carell’s Brick Tamland steals the show wishing viewers a Happy Easter, much to the chagrin of Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy.
During the last twelve months, a tidal wave of rumours have emerged concerning the sequel’s starry cameo line up. There’s no mistaking the clout that director Adam McKay’s creation has over Hollywood. Some of the most respected thesps in the ‘biz have brought the funny for their brief appearances. So far this includes Harrison Ford, Nicole Kidman, Dylan Baker, Kristen Wiig, John C. Reilly, James Marsden, Meagan Good, Josh Lawson, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Greg Kinnear. These of course are the only confirmed cameos. Rumours suggest that Will Smith, Kanye West and Sacha Baron Cohen have joined the ranks too.
The screenplay, written by Ferrell and director McKay, has been kept under wraps with little detail about the story surfacing. What we do know is that it takes place a few years after the first film and the original gang from Anchorman must now cope with the 24-hour news cycle. McKay did let a couple of tidbits out too, namely that there’ll be a custody battle involved.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues lands in cinemas on December 20th. Check out the new teaser below.
