Ron Burgundy Is Back And 'Burgundy-er' Then Ever In 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' [Trailer]

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' trailer was released today and has been met with widespread excitement by comedy fans. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues follows the story of 70's newsreader Ron Burgundy and his group of hideous (yet hilarious) co-anchors. Ferrell stars as Ron, whilst Paul Rudd (Friends), Steve Carell (The Office) and David Koechner (The Office) play the rest of the team, Brian, Brick and Champ. The group first graced our screens in 2004. Christina Applegate (Up All Night) will feature as Ron's love interest Veronica. 

In this instalment the group of badly dressed misfits have encountered the 80's. Ron has disappeared into obscurity only to be picked to host a new 24 hour news station. A series of farcical and not at all P.C. events occur. 

Appearing in cameo roles are actors Liam Neeson (Taken) and Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones). Comedy friends of the four main actors who also play a part include Tina Fey, Sacha Baron Cohen and Jim Carey. 

Watch the trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues:


The film has been co-written by Ferrell and Adam McKay. The two writers have previously worked together on such comedies as The Other Guys and Stepbrothers. Such comedies, Anchorman included, all have very similar qualities but they have proved to be commercially successful and many of the lines have been repeatedly regurgitated and cackled at by adolescent males across worldwide. 

Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which is released over the Christmas period, is likely to be a huge success.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues is due out in US and UK cinemas 20th December 2013.
