It's been nearly 10 years since we first met Ron Burgundy, and this sequel is just as random and silly as expected. It's also more like a series of referential gags than an actual movie comedy, and as with the original film the best bits are knowing jabs at absurdities of the news media. This time we're in the 1980s, so there's plenty to make fun of here.
Over the past decade, Ron (Ferrell) has married Veronica (Applegate), and they've taken a joint anchor job in New York, where they live with their son (Nelson). But when Veronica lands a coveted network news job, Ron has a meltdown. Drunk and unemployed, he's approached to work on a new station: a 24-hour cable news channel. Even though he's sure this crazy idea will never catch on, Ron re-assembles his old team (swaggering reporter Rudd, dazed weatherman Carell and goofy sports guy Koechner) to beat handsome anchor Jack Lime (Marsden) in the ratings. And Ron's offbeat, populist approach changes the news forever.
This comical exploration of how TV news has shifted from hard reporting to shameless audience pandering gives the film a whiff of depth, which helps make the comical moments a lot funnier. The screenplay is a series of sketch-comedy episodes that don't quite hang together. For example, you could delete an extended sequence in which Ron goes blind, nurses a shark to health and sings a big musical number, and the movie wouldn't change at all. But all of these sequences have an absurd genius behind them that often gets us laughing, sometimes in disbelief.

The stars of 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' are seen arriving at the New York premiere held at Beacon Theatre; among them are Kristen Wiig, who plays new addition to the cast Chani, and Christina Applegate, who returns as Veronica and arrives with husband Martyn LeNoble.

The legend of San Diego's Channel 4 news team may have long since dissolved over the years, but anchors Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind are set to return as part of a brand new 24-hour news channel. In a bid to innovate newsreading and once again come out on top over Ron's wife and rival Veronica, they decide that they're going to give viewers the news they want to hear rather than what they need to. As usual, their antics involve the usual scandal and debauchery, putting their careers and tarnished reputations once again in the media's line of fire. No matter though, as these co-workers have each other's backs all the way.
Steve Carell has revealed during the 'Anchorman 2' première that the filming was difficult, due to Will Ferrell being too funny on the set.
Actor Steve Carell had difficulty working on the 'Anchorman' sequel because he found Will Ferrell so funny it was ''almost impossible'' to work with him. The 51-year-old 'Despicable Me' actor apparently had no quarrels with immediately signing on for 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues', as the 2004 original was the "best fun" he's ever had. On the flip side, it made his job incredibly difficult, as he was almost unable to film certain scenes as he struggled to keep his composure.

In an interview with 'Bang Showbiz' at 'Anchorman 2''s premiere at The Odeon, Leicester Square, London, the 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.' star explained that: 'There's a scene we did in a lighthouse with Ron and it's probably the scene I laughed the hardest at. Will was so especially funny that day, it was almost impossible to get it [the scene] done.

The news used to be a noble profession before the likes of Ron Burgundy with his set of San Diego anchors Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind took over. Now it's all about scandal, debauchery and vulgarity and Burgundy and his team are fighting hard to keep it that way. As per usual, they manage to get themselves in all kinds of trouble involving drugs in the studio, completely inappropriate news headlines, accidental racism (not to mention homophobia) and, of course, getting laid, and it's all in a bid to remain on top of the media as Ron fights his own battle to professionally tower over his wife and rival Veronica.
'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' is the even more hilarious sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy'. There's definitely more laughs to be had from everyone's favourite news readers as Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall') returns to produce it. Director Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') is also back alongside his co-writer and star Will Ferrell. It is set to feature in cinemas just in time for Christmas, premiering in theatres everywhere on December 20th 2013.

Ron Burgundy, the fictional anchor-man who stars in 'Anchorman' and its upcoming sequel 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues', will pen his memoirs.
Ron Burgundy, the fictional anchorman starring in the film of the same name, is to pen a satirical memoir.
Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate filming on the set of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Ron Burgundy is played in Anchorman (and its sequel) by Will Ferrell. The 2004 film and its socially inept characters have undergone something of a revival over the past few months, largely owing to the upcoming sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

"Say whaaat?" The long-awaited Anchorman sequel is moving closer to cinema screens as filming finally wraps up, with post-production work beginning on 19th June according to Movie Insider.
After teaser videos have circulated for weeks, a full Anchorman 2: The Legend Returns trailer has finally been released, signalling the world is about to go crazy for the 'big deal' that is Ron Burgundy all over again. Planned for a late 2013 release, the film has been in the pipeline for quite some time - after first announcements in 2011 - making sure fan excitement reaches maximum levels of rabid hysteria before the film is finally released this Christmas.
Still classy in San Diego, the film will catch up with the legendary sleazeball and moustachioed news anchor, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), and feature much of the same cast, including Steve Carell as Brick Tamland, Paul Rudd as Brian Fantana, David Koechner as Champ Kind and Christina Applegate as Veronica Corningstone. Only this movie sees the crew years on from where the first Anchorman left off, living life in the eighties and faced with the prospect of a rolling 24 hour news channel.
Now the team have more competition in the form of a handsome, well-dressed rival anchor to deal with and plenty more cringeworthy sticky situations for Burgundy.

Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind have now hit the eighties and things are a little different. The legendary San Diego news anchors are now embarking on a different project, as part of a 24 hour news channel, but now they have fresh competition in the form of a young, handsome and well-dressed fellow anchor. Ron continues to put himself in sticky situations, this time involving some awkward racism with his new girlfriend's family during a social occasion among many other things. Will their antics extend beyond their previous capers involving angry bears and mean bikers? Or will the eighties bring with it a more streetwise news bunch? We doubt the latter.
The sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' is set to hit our screens soon entitled 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues'. We'll likely be seeing yet more hijinks from one of Hollywood's favourite comedy casts as they return following at massive $85 million gross from the original movie. Produced again by Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'), Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') also makes a return as director and co-writer alongside Will Ferrell. It is scheduled for release in the UK on December 20th 2013.
Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind return in this hilarious sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' which saw Ron land himself a hot girlfriend, get attacked by a bear and have his dog thrown over a bridge by an angry biker. The legendary San Diego news anchors are doubtlessly set to entertain us with more news casting exploits which, according to the latest teaser trailer, will involve 'submachine guns and boobies' and getting 'stinky'. One thing's for sure, it's going to be funnier, weirder and much ruder.

Drake is reportedly the latest actor to join the star-studded cast.
As the excitement builds for the Anchorman sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, another trailer for the film was released. You can check out the second trailer, featuring the beloved cast of Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Vince Vaughn and Steve Carell. But we already knew they were in it and, exciting as that prospect is, the cameos, which have been announced recently, make this movie look even better. Viewers will get appearances by actors like Kanye West, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler, Jim Carrey, Tina Fey and Harrison Ford, New York Daily News reports.
And the cameos just keep coming. After Kanye West, busy as he is, wrapped his scenes in New York last week, there was another surprising appearance on set – namely an actor, sporting a fro and the appropriate 70s duds, who looked suspiciously like singer/rapper Drake. Apparently the "Take Care" performer will be the latest star in the constellation already appearing in this film. Not only that, but the Daily News also posted several pictures of stars Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate taken during shooting. They look fierce, they look ready to go, but most of all, they look, unsurprisingly, very 70s. And if nothing else, the stills make it obvious that Anchorman 2 will definitely feature some excellent hairdos.

Kanye West is the latest celebrity to join the ranks of Anchorman 2.
Kanye West appears to have landed himself a cameo in the Anchorman sequel after Hollywood.com reported he was spotted filming with Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd on a downtown Atlanta rooftop. It's safe to assume Anchorman 2 was the movie being filmed, with Kanye thought to be making a very brief cameo.
The eyewitness said, "he was quite afraid of heights and required an umbrella for shade most of the time he was on the roof." The Anchorman 2 production began in Atlanta in the past few weeks filming scenes in Woodruff Park and the surrounding areas, many of which have been captured by the prying eyes of the paparazzi. Writer and producer Will Ferrell is apparently a long-time hero of Kanye's, having included his dialogue from Blades of Glory in his song N*ggas In Paris. Following his infamous Taylor Swift/MTV VMA's controversy, Kanye compared himself to Ron Burgundy in a Twitter rant.
The sighting comes just 24 hours after Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were see beating up co-star Sacha Baron Cohen with crowbars! The rumors are that Vince Vaughn and Luke Wilson have also filmed very brief performances at the Atlanta set, while Nicole Kidman will be featured in a "secret" un-credited role, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Harrison Ford will be a news anchor in the new movie.

Married with Children star Christina Applegate has married her bass player fiancé
After four years together, Martyn LeNoble and Christina Applegate have tied the knot. E! News confirms that the 41 year old actress (perhaps best known for her role in Married With Children) and the 43 year old bass player for Porno For Pyros finally got hitched after getting engaged on Valentine’s Day back in 2010. Christina and Martyn’s wedding took place during a private ceremony at their home in Los Angeles, surrounded by family friends.
Meanwhile, the rest of Hollywood was busy celebrating The Oscars down at the Dolby Theatre. An excellent ply to keep the media away from your wedding, their, Christina – we salute you! However, that hasn’t stopped the news from getting out and Applegate’s rep confirmed to E! News “Christina Applegate and Martyn LeNoble exchanged vows...surrounded by family in a private ceremony at their home in Los Angeles.” The couple already have a two year old daughter named Sadie Grace LeNoble, who Christina referred to as a “miracle.” Christina and Martyn’s rings were designed by Neil Lane and she reportedly wore a gown designed by Maria Lucia Hohan.
This wasn’t the first time up the aisle for Christina (though, presumably, if she married at home, there was no aisle to speak of, this time around. She was previously married to the writer and director Jonathon Schaech for six years. They divorced in 2007.

The news that Do No Harm has been cancelled will come as quite a shock, especially considering the show only lasted 2 episodes.
It was, unfortunately, the lowest-rated in-season broadcast scripted series premiere in the history of the Big Four networks. And this week it fell another 22 percent among the much-coveted 18-49 year old viewers, who count for the most with NBC ad sales executives. Failure in that respect effectively sealed its doom. The 10pm Thursday space has been a bone of contention for the network, who can't seem to find a consistent show to fill the troublesome slot. They now have a decision to make; they could put Rock Center back in the slot or try another new drama, Hannibal, which is ready to go on the air. That or try and commission a brand new drama to pull in those valuable viewers. In the meantime they'll be running Law & Order: SVU reruns.
The news marks a dark week for NBC, who learnt that 50% of Up All Night's core - Christina Applegate - was leaving the show. "It's been a great experience working on 'Up All Night' but the show has taken a different creative direction and I decided it was best for me to move on to other endeavors," Applegate said Friday in a statement.

We're still waiting on an officially press release at the moment, but it looks as though Kristen Wiig's role in the upcoming Anchorman sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, has been all but confirmed by two people heavily involved in the movie.
Yesterday (Feb 5) director and co-writer of the hugely successful comedy Adam McKay first announced the news via his Twitter, with co-star Christina Applegate (Veronica Corningstone) also confirming the news shortly after, also on Twitter. It is rumored that Wiig will play Brick Tamland's (Steve Carrell) wife in the upcoming sequel.
News updates on the hotly anticipated film have been few and far between, with the first and only trailer for the movie being released way back in May last year. Word on the street is that the film will follow Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and his loyal news team as they negotiate the harsh seas of change in a vessel called diversity during the turbulent years of the early 1980's. Or something like that anyway, all you need to know is that it will have San Diego's classiest resident starring in it so what more could you want?

Dave (Lee) takes all six mischievous Chipmunks on a cruise-ship holiday before their big performance at the International Music Awards. Of course, Alvin (Long) is immediately in trouble, taking his pals Simon and Theodore (Bugler and McCartney) and the Chipettes (Poehler, Applegate and Faris) with him. But Alvin's next stunt strands them all on a deserted island, including Dave and former manager Ian (Cross). On the island they meet treasure-hunting nutcase castaway Zoe (Slate), just as a volcano is about to blow.

According to the production notes, director Che-Kirk Wong actually had considerable confidence in the project. "The script was very original," explains Wong. "I enjoy doing action sequences, but action means nothing if we don't have decent characters. They're both equally important to me." Is Wong thinking of the same movie I just endured?

Anchorman launches us into the world of '70s broadcast journalism with local San Diego anchor Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) as the poster boy for men behaving badly. His supporting anchors introduce themselves by breaking the fourth wall with all the casual gusto of their on-air personas. There's good-ol'-boy Champ Kind (David Koechner) with sports, ladies' man Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) in the field, and dumb-as-a-Brick Tamland (Steven Carell) on weather. They revel in their boys' club with gleeful ignorance of terms like "sexual harassment" until new reporter Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) enters the fray. Improbably, Ron and Veronica hit it off until a series of events puts her in the co-anchor seat and professional jealousy rips them apart, sending Ron on a downward spiral.
