Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Super-Sized Trailer features 763 new jokes and is rated R!
A lot of what goes into filming any movie with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay is improvisation. With the sequel to Anchorman, there was a ton of footage shot but it all had to be trimmed down into the sequel everyone watched. With how much footage was left over, you could have created an entirely separate movie. Even though I liked the sequel somewhat, I am sure that the Anchorman team gauged the overall response to the film as negative. This is typical with most sequels. In a final attempt to right their wrongs, I am excited to see where this rated-R version will take us.
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 theaters, I did an 1950′s spit take. If you’re a hardcore Anchorman fan go see this. If you’re not, stay very far away. – Adam McKay
