Sweet knights of Colombus!! A new trailer for ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES has been unleashed!!
Howdy do, everyone, Papa Vinyard here.
As was promised, tonight we got a new trailer for ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES. It reveals the premise which, as was expected, centers around the Channel 4 News Team dealing with the advent of the 24-hour news network (and, by extention, the '80s in general). It also shows several members of the new cast, including Dylan Baker, Meagan Good (who seems to replace Veronica Corningstone as Ron's new girlfriend, at least for a while), a well-cast James Marsden, and Kristen Wiig, looking funny as Brick's significant other.
But who cares? How are the old cast members as their respective characters? Well we don't get any lingering glimpse of the News Team hanging out, but there are enough good beats and solid Ron Bergundy line readings to suggest that the sequel will have the same level of verve and hilarity as the original. Paul Rudd definitely seems like he's having fun throwing on that mustache again after years of mostly playing relatively sincere, straightforward guys.
But it could still go either way. The racial humor at the end seems really forced and cliched; is there any reason for it other than that they didn't find a place for those kind of jokes in the original? Still, I definitely remember the ANCHORMAN trailers failing to do it justice, and also featuring material different than what we eventually saw, so we'll see. Definitely at least a competent start to the roll-out of the marketing campaign that will also include, as we reported, a museum exhibit in Washington D.C.
ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES will eat a big red candle on December 20th.
