Let the hilarity begin
Anchorman 2 doesn’t start filming until February, but fans have already seen not one, but two trailers featuring Channel Four’s crack news team.
With no actual film footage shot yet, the trailers don’t reveal very much about the plot of Anchorman 2, but it is getting fans of the first film excited riding the palomino stallion.
One thing we know we can look forward to in Anchorman 2 is that, “There’s going to be submachine guns and boobies,” according to David Koechner’s Champ Kind, “Whammy!”
It’s a welcome reunion. We’ve been a mess without them. We need them so damn much. We miss being with them. We miss being near them. We miss their laughs. We miss their scents. We miss their musks.
And now they’re back, with two teaser trailers debuting on Will Ferrell’s Funny or Die site, one running in trailers before The Dictator. The trailer most recently released is significantly different than the one that ran in theaters, although both begin with San Diego’s Channel Four news team stepping forward through fog on a stage, silhouetted by stage lighting.
“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,” the voice-over begins.
Sidekicks David Koechner, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell all return for Anchorman 2, with the trailer promising more ridiculous and completely nonsensical one-liners from Carell’s Brick Tamland.
Unless they really play witches in this movie, in which case, he’s right on target. But that’s unlikely.
As for the trailer that hit theaters this weekend, how do you feel about a hot tub full of scotch?
The teaser trailers don’t give any real clues as to potential plot lines, but not to worry.
“Look, it’s… it’s gonna be a fun movie,” Ron Burgundy promises.
You know, when this all gets sorted out, I think we should all get an apartment together.
Okay, I’m going to sit the next one out, stop talking for awhile, while you all check out the trailers below.
