Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (Trailer #1) Review
I was writing a review for another trailer but this came out and obviously got pushed to the front of the queue. Now like everyone when this was announced I was excited, I loved the first film and a sequel sounded great but I had my doubts about a successful sequel so many years later, however this trailer has lowered my fears but there still there. Trailer looks good, it’s funny and the cast seem to remember their characters. Feels more like a long teaser but for now it will do and hope for a great film to equal its predecessor. Hope you enjoy the trailer and stills I managed to grab. Add your comments and likes at the end.
My Score: B+
Release date: 20th December 2013
After the 1970s brought prosperity to the Channel 4 news team, the group disbands and hits rock bottom until a 24-hour news channel is being put together and the group is recruited to join the channel. In an April 2012 interview, director Adam McKay said the script was a work in progress. He stated that the story might include a custody battle and bowling. In a May 2012 interview, he was quoted as saying that nothing was set. The story is moved from San Diego to New York, at the onset of the cable news era in the 1980s. Kristen Wiig plays Brick’s love interest.
Top 8 Scenes
8. The Elite Unit Are Back
When you see them all doing that stupid walk down a busy street you just remember everything you loved about the first film. The cloths are ridiculous in true 80’s style, but Brian Fantana takes the lead in an unreliable in character cloths ensemble.
7. A Scene Born For Ron Burgundy
Extra credit goes to the man taking a drink, great comic timing and really adds to the scene. An egotistical, misogynistic, and narcissistic man like Ron Burgundy would so easily make a racist mistake like this and keeps with the character perfectly, am sure they’ll be more of it to come.
6. Oh It Was My Hand
What?! That doesn’t make any sense, but again it’s Ron so obviously he’d mistake his own hand for another person’s foot.
Yay Baxters back and somehow eating fried chicken haha, I just really hope he’s as funny as in the first film.
4. You’re Not That Great
Apart from James Marsden being the new golden boy of news Anchoring, Bricks unwanted repeat of Ron’s insult is the best part of the scene.
3. Brian Fantana on Sex Panther
Easily one of Pauls best characters and he just looks so funny here I don’t even know what to say but haha what is happening here. Also I can’t quite tell but is that someone famous next to him? Because I know there is supposed to be lots of cameo’s and guest appearances.
2. Brick’s Romance
His face right there gives me faith that this film has the same great characters as the first. Gotta love Kristen Wigg as well the two of which should make a unique couple on screen.
1. Ron, a Sombrero and an Apple
I have no idea what is happening in this scene but I nearly cried laughing at this picture, I missed it the first time I saw the trailer but when doing this review it really stood out as being a what?! Moment and I love it. December’s going to be a fun month.
