An R-Rated version of Anchorman 2 arrives in movie theaters, exclusively.
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 the nation’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.
Perhaps the movie should have been released in its R-Rated format in the first place.
The new cut of the film, titled Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues: Super Sized R Rated Version, features 763 entirely new jokes from legendary anchorman Ron Burgundy and America’s favorite 24-hour global news team.
Director Adam McKay says: “When my editor told me we had a whole different version of the movie that was more than two hours long with nearly 800 new jokes, I was shocked. But when Paramount said they were actually going to put it in theaters, I did an 1950’s spit take. If you’re a hardcore Anchorman fan go see this. If you’re not, stay very far away.”
