Funny or Die Releases ‘Anchorman 2’ Teaser Trailer
How do “submachine guns and boobies” sound? According to a recent teaser trailer, “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” will have plenty of both.
Less than a week after the release of the film’s first official teaser poster, Will Ferrell’s website Funny or Die debuted a teaser trailer for “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” the upcoming sequel to 2004’s “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” The trailer features Ron (Ferrell), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), Brian Fontana (Paul Rudd) and Champion “Champ” Kind (David Koechner) in proper moronic form.
Not much is revealed in terms of plot other than Brick’s most likely made-up reveal: “In this movie, we play witches.” The trailer does, however offer a revealing voiceover:
“In the age when the dinosaurs’ roar greeted the dawn and apes rode the winged horse across the valley of Eli, there was a lone stranger who offered comfort, wisdom and overly sexual neck massages. It was said he would one day return. That day has come.”
That day won’t be for a while –filming isn’t supposed to start until February 2013 – but beggars can’t be choosers. Plans for a prior sequel had been announced in 2008 only to be scrapped in April 2010. All fans have had to enjoy since the first film is the direct-to-DVD “Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie,” which offers alternate scenes containing most of the original plot.
Look for “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” sometime in late 2013. With its release, perhaps we’ll finally found out if diversity really is an old wooden ship.
