The Gang’s All Here–And It’s the ’80s in ‘Anchorman 2’

Here’s a new trailer—and a new decade—as the Channel 5 team returns to the air

Film Comments

The ‘stache is back. That’d be the caterpillar on the upper lip of Ron Burgundy, the legendary 1970s San Diego newscaster immortalized in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

In Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, not out until December 20, it’s the 1980s and Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and his Channel 5 cohorts have been asked to participate in a new 24-hour news channel. Prepare yourself for new pretty-faced competition (James Marsden), a potential popcorn-haired romantic interest (Kristen Wiig) for awkward, socially-inept Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), and, of course, Ron Burgundy’s perfect hair.

Rising from the ashes like a mustachioed phoenix, Ron Burgundy proclaims: "I’m going to do the thing that God put Ron Burgundy on this earth to do: have salon-quality hair and read the news."

No news yet on if there will be more pyrotechnic jazz flute but anything could happen.
