Release date set. Get ready to laugh hard next Christmas

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2012/12/20/anchorman-2-gets-release-date/1782237/



Anchorman director Adam McKay tweeted news that will delight fans of the original 2004 film.

"It's official. Anchorman 2 has a release date: December 20, 2013," he told his followers. "Very excited."

Judd Apatow, who produced the original film, also chimed in about the news, writing, "One year from tomorrow Anchorman 2 will be in theaters!! It is kind of a big deal." He was retweeted more than 4,800 times.

"We're all coming back – it starts shooting in the spring," Paul Rudd told Access Hollywood at the This Is 40 premiere last week. "I'm very excited for it."

There is buzz that Kristin Wiig may join the cast as a love interest for Steve Carell's Brick Tamland.

Will Ferrell, who plays anchorman Ron Burgundy, told ABC last month that the Anchorman 2 plot will focus on the transition of old-school news to the modern entertainment news of the 24-hour news cycle. "Ron's going to be one of the catalysts of that," Ferrell said.

Talladega was a snooze fest, kicking and screaming sucked, blades of glory was a dud same with semi-pro, the other guys was lame so when you really think about it, only step brothers and anchorman has been good. Everyone thinks just cause Anchorman 1 was such a classic, that he's still that same comic and has ideas that are just as good. The truth is, he's ran out of material and has a hard time playing other characters. People forget that anchorman movie was almost 10 years ago and he hasn't done shit since, maybe step brothers but that's it.

Kristen Wiig Joins ‘Anchorman 2′: Castmate (http://www.deadline.com/2013/02/kristin-wiig-joins-anchorman-2-castmember/)

Today Christina Applegate tweeted: “So excited Kristen Wiig has joined our cast for Anchorman 2.” Applegate, returning for Anchorman: The Legend, confirmed a resolution to the reports that Wiig, the former Saturday Night Live breakout and Bridesmaids star, had been in talks to play the wife of Brick Tamland played by Steve Carell. Wiig fits director Adam McKay’s hype that he plans to create “a murderer’s row of the best day players ever … every single one-line or three-line role [will] just be someone we just love.” Sequel is due out December 20th.

They've been promoting the hell out of this movie.

Something tells me this is going to be just as disappointing as Hangover 2 was when it came out.

I sure hope not because I liked the first one a lot. But most of these appearances Ferrell has done as his "Burgundy" character on ESPN, random local news casts, interviews etc, have been really weird and awkward. It pretty much looks like Ferrell was trying too hard to make it funny. A lot of overkill IMO.

I think when Will Ferrell isn't the star of the movie, when he shares it with someone else he's at his best. Old School, Step Brothers I think were his two best movies. I liked Anchorman and I"ll see this one and probably laugh through 70% of it or so.

I've always thought that Will Ferrell was hilarious. I just find that his humor is much better in sketch comedy than actual movies. His movies are either hit or miss for me. Step Brothers? Hilarious. Talladega Nights? Stupid as fuck.

Just got back from seeing this. It's worth seeing it if you liked the first one.

A few parts where you're kinda wanting them to just move on to the next scene, but overall it was pretty entertaining.

Steve Carrell doesn't disappoint in this movie. Whatever that SNL chick's name is, the one who plays Carrell's moronic counterpart, plays the part well and they feed off of eachother. The only one thing that is kinda disappointing and is prob a big reason sequels (esp in comedies) aren't as good as the orig is because the orig was all about the character development etc. In the sequel you already know the characters so there isn't that first initial gotcha moment. There's a lot of "I Love Lamp" and that kinda shit from him.

But if you didn't like the first one, I wouldn't see this in theatre. If you liked the first one, then it's worth seeing. Not as good as the orig as the cliche' saying goes...but I enjoyed it.

Exactly, I went to see the 1st one with one of my best friend's, and the girl who he had just recently started dating at the time ended up tagging along with us to see it.

I was enjoying myself and he and I were laughing our asses off- she may as well been a dead cricket, because I didn't hear a chirp out of her I don't think for the whole movie. I asked him if she was that quiet in the sack also.

Needless to say she didn't last very long other than being banging attractive, and he knew full well he wasn't sticking with her for long, but she was rather submissive and open to being risqué. For the next 2 months he pretty much made a game out of seeing what she'd go along with such as bjs in the back of cabs, in his office, sex at 1 of her friend's wedding receptions, etc.

I can see this, and kind of agree with you on that- his comedy shorts on funny or die are great, he's always hilarious when doing small cameos like in Eastbound and Down . Not that I don't like his movies, it's just a tougher feat to pull off the staying power for a 90+ minute movie.

For the most part, Ferrell is at his funniest when he's teamed up with another person(s).

Sometimes there's a little bit too much of Ferrell. When he goes over the top stupid I think a middle schooler would laugh at him, but the general public would not.

Holy Jesus was this movie a shit fest...

It was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. If I hadn't driven there with a group of friends, I would have walked out. Steve Carrel was an abortion, and the chick they paired him with was somehow even worse. Their entire roles were basically a Napoleon Dynamite and Deb ripoff...except without the humor.

It's pretty obvious that 90% of the movie was improv, but it was like the director had them shoot every scene three times and then just went with it regardless of the fact that there was nothing funny about it.

I love Will Ferrel, but everything about his comedy in this movie has been done 20 times before. How many times do I need to hear him say some zany variation of "Great Ceasar's Ghost" before that horse is declared dead?

Its two hours of these guys saying random stupid things and hoping for a cheap laugh. I absolutely can not fathom how anyone could find this movie funny.

Sounds like this movie needed a better edit job. Noticed it's like 20-30 minutes longer than the first.

I hate when they let scenes and jokes drag on too long. For instance, the longer cut of Talladega Nights was 20 minutes longer and was nearly unbearable with scenes they dragged out.

I just watched the first one last night. Explains a lot of jokes that went over my head the last 5-6 years.

I saw this tonight. Not as good as the first one, but its fun and dumb. Don't look for any greater life meaning here. But its an OK way to blow off a couple hours. Lots of cameos in the last 20 minutes.

Overall, I came away a bit disappointed. It had its funny moments, but it was primarily formed as a reprise to the original rather than a sequel if that makes any sense. It's worth seeing if you were a big fan of the original, but I doubt it'll be winning over any new fans.

Still, the characters are fun, and like I said, there are some pretty funny moments. I just think they could've done a lot better. Oh well.

I enjoyed it. I didn't love the first one, and found myself aghast at some of the stupidity, but overall I liked the satire and several of the individual moments (pipe-hittin' bitches was an awesome reference, even if it was anachronistic).

Anchorman 2 re-released with all new gags (+trailer)

Will Ferrell's latest hit movie will return to cinemas this week - with almost every joke replaced with a new one.

In an industry first, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which was released in December, will be refreshed and renamed Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Continued - using footage shot, but not used, in the follow up to the 2004 original.

It will screen in 1000 cinemas across the United States this week.

"We started talking and realized, we can replace every single joke in the movie with another joke," director Adam McKay told the New York Times. McKay also wrote the film with Ferrell.

He said there were some jokes left behind in the re-released film, but 95 percent of them had been replaced with alternate gags that hadn't been used the first time around - 763 new jokes, to be exact.

The new version will be longer than the original, clocking in at just under two hours.

It seems it isn't money that's behind the push to re-release; Anchorman 2 has already made more than $200 million in worldwide ticket sales. Instead McKay said the idea came from the improvised nature of the films, which left a lot of unused, alternate takes from shooting.

"This is a stitched up, Frankenstein version," he told the newspaper. "You'll either love it or hate it."

It's not the first time films have been re-jigged, but it is the most extreme. In 1966, Woddy Allen added dialogue and a new storyline to his film What's Up, Tiger Lily.

The alternate of the Original was good [Wake Up Ron Burgundy]

It'll probably be slightly less strong overall, but will still have some quality material.

I think it's a genius move. I actually hope it gets a nice box office boost simply because it'll promote to continue thinking outside the box in an industry that's risk adverse to an extreme.

Yeah wasn't bad. Worth at least a few laughs.

I was kinda disappointed with Anchorman 2 though, it started off real strong for the first 45 minutes, then the ending just wasn't' that funny.

I read an interesting article that Anchorman 2 was a disappointment because it was over-marketed. People saw so many clips of Ron Burgundy between Dodge commercials, ESPN, etc... that people felt like they pretty much saw the whole movie. It wasn't even that people got sick of him. Pretty unusual, when you think about it.

I don't see this as being anywhere close to genius, outside the box, or risky. They picked up the scraps they didn't feel were good enough to serve you in the first place, and are charging you for it. There is also no risk either, as it cost them basically nothing to make.

I'm not saying it won't be good, but there's just nothing genius about it.

I don't think the product itself will be genius, but I think the idea is fascinating and will probably see it myself. It's like getting to watch an entire movie of deleted scenes.

It won't be as good as the original, but it'll still be really interesting to watch.

I'm speaking to the idea that when you improv each scene 4-5 times each, there's gonna be funny shit left on the editing floor. That being the difference- most takes are essentially the same thing.

Curb your Enthusiasm shoots like this also, based off a bone script of plot scenes and storyline. Louie CK's show has a bit more of a fleshed out dialogue, but will run improv scene takes for guys he thinks can actually bring something to the episode.

I'd love to see all the tons of film they have in the can over the course of show that's never seen the light of day because it didn't make final edit.

As a fan of the cast in general, all being funny guys, it's a cool idea to turn your outtakes into another cohesive full feature. Its a creative means of presenting additional content for those interested. That's all.

This movie was pretty funny but holy hell was that last third atrocious! If not for the cameos in the battle scene, I don't think I would have laughed a single time.

No, I agree with all that. It's just not anything new/genius/risky. I love this kind of stuff too. I still haven't seen the original A2 yet, but will likely check this out too when I get around to it. Although I'm guessing the amount of new material that is also as good, or nearly as good as what was not cut, will not be enough to fill a movie. The best ones would likely be a nice 20 - 30 minute outtakes segment on the bluray.

I was pretty disappointed. Maybe it will grow on me. I know the first one did. The first half of the movie actually is pretty good but it pretty much stops being funny about half way thru...and I thought the news anchor fight was really poorly dine in this one and not funny at all

Netflix actually has 2 versions of the movie. I watched the theatrical cut. There is an expanded cut that adds like 20 minutes.
