Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is returning to UK and US cinemas for one week only from Friday 28th February 2014.
The new version of the film, titled Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues…Continued features up to 763 entirely new jokes. The comedy sequel was originally released in December and sees Will Ferrell reprise his popular character for a second outing. The film also stars Christina Applegate, David Koechner, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell.
“When my editor told me we had a whole different version of the movie that was more than two hours long with nearly 800 new jokes, I was shocked. But when Paramount said they were actually going to put it in theatres, I did a 1950’s spit take. If you’re a hardcore Anchorman fan, go see this. If you’re not, stay very far away,” said writer / director Adam McKay.
To date, Anchorman: The Legend Continues has earned more than $170 million at the worldwide box office. Check out the trailer for the re-release below:
