Film’s most acerbic, politically incorrect broadcaster, Ron Burgundy, is back!
The new trailer for Anchorman 2 – The Legend Continues was released Wednesday, showing the twisted and hapless Burgundy, played by Will Ferrell, now under intense news pressure, working for a 24-7 cable news network in New York City, far from his comfort zone and the ’70s wild life of his home base in San Diego.
Co-anchor Veronica Corningstone, now his wife, makes a return with Christina Applegate once again in the supporting role. Other journalists join Burgundy on his Big Apple adventure. Playing reporters are Steve Carell, David Koechner and Paul Rudd.
The film is set for release Dec. 20.
