I found Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues to be 20% really enjoyable and 80% failed attempts at impersonating the first film with a third act that dragged the entire thing down. But that’s the beauty of shooting with lots of on-set improvisation. Because now, for one week only, Paramount is releasing a special super-sized R-rated version with 763 new jokes. If my calculations are correct, at least 152 of those new jokes have to be funny. Then again, I was an art major so….

Whatever. I’m holding out hope that this is the Anchorman 2 I actually wanted to see. Here’s hoping they recast Ron Burgundy‘s in this version.

Champ Kind made good on his threat to Wes Mantooth and did take his saintly mother, Dorothy, out for a nice seafood dinner before never calling her again. In addition to the nice dinner, they also engaged in wheelchair sex. Left heartbroken, Dorothy is suing Champ for damages of $5,000.

Champ is counter-suing for $100 (the price of the dinner).

When interviewing A-List celebrities, there are certain things that you should not do. We did all of them. Though the cast of Anchorman 2 are pretty good sports, we did still manage to have Steve Carell threaten to kill Hal. Twice.

Make no mistake, we totally blew it. In fact, we think it appropriate that we quote the immortal words of Shia LaBeouf here.

But we own our mistakes around here and decided to use our miserable, shameful failure to help the world. HEAL the world, if you will. In the spirit of learning, we give you… How Not To Do A Junket.

With Ron Burgundy out there promoting every North American brand under the sun and hosting European Awards Shows, it’s high time that he get around to promoting his own product — The Fandango Anchorman 2 SuperTicket. Here, the world’s finest newsman explains the benefits of the SuperTicket and it sounds like something that’s going to make the missus quite happy.

On a sidenote, is anyone else concerned that Will Ferrell won’t be able to go back to being Will Ferrell after all of these Ron Burgundy appearances end? That man is deeply, deeply entrenched and, at the very least, that mustache glue must leave a pretty serious rash.

In case you were unaware (like, if you hadn’t been in front of a TV in three months), there’s going to be a new Anchorman film coming out ’round Christmastime. And, saturation points be damned, Will Ferrell is going to keep promoting that fact until he keels over or the film becomes the new Titanic.

His most recent stop was a curling tournament in Winnipeg. Which is just random enough to make perfect sense. We don’t have footage of the event, as it seems to have been taken down off YouTube, but we’ve got this.

Ron Burgundy crashed a newscast for Bismarck, ND last night, and while he only got about 90 seconds of spotlight during the 30-minute newscast, it was pretty damn fun. While he played the whole thing pretty aloof, without being too hammy, his “I have no idea,” when asked a question going to commercial stuck out as the funniest bit to me.

His co-anchor, regular Amber Schatz, had a hard time keeping it together during the entirety of the broadcast, though it’s not clear if her amusement was rom Burgundy, or the painfully funny banality of North Dakota news. Anyway, take a look. It’s not like you don’t have a free half-hour today.

Here’s the picture. It’s wonderful. I don’t want to write any more about it. Let’s just look at it and smile, enjoying the pleasure of it all. Can we?

We can’t? Oh. Okay. It’s a still from some element of the European MTV Music Awards. I would make the very tired joke about MTV not showing music anymore, but in Europe, it’s possible they don’t have the same threshold for white trash reality TV that America has, so maybe they just show awesome music videos.

Anyway, in my mind, Daft Punk does stuff like this every weekend. It would be funny if it later came to light that they biked 79 miles like this, stopping only for water and to dance to “Get Lucky.”

Ron Burgundy is the balls. That’s never, ever been disputed. But when we examined HOW he was the balls, we just recently came across with a facet of his personality that we never knew about: his inner salesman.

Since the awesomely ubiquitous (at least if you watch sports) Ron Burgundy Dodge ads started airing a couple months ago, the car manufacturer has seen some crazy-huge increases in sales. For instance, October sales went up 59% for the Durango, which is pretty impressive. Maybe he could fix Syria and the fractured nature of the two-party system when he’s done selling these sweet rides.

Now you can see Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues two days before the unwashed masses, without leading the glamorous life of an unwashed movie blogger. However, you do need to be rich.

As they did with World War Z’s ‘megaticket’ promotion, Paramount has announced a ‘superticket’, which goes on sale November 26th, for the comedy that will guarantee fans an early screening and other perks. In the case of World War Z, the megaticket cost $50 and allowed purchasers to see the film two days prior to its official release and receive an HD digital copy of the film when it became available. The package also included a small popcorn, a pair of custom RealD 3D glasses and a movie poster. Additional info about the benefits of an Anchorman 2 superticket remain TBD, leaving us all to guess for now which is better a measurement of value, super or mega. (THR)

When Adam McKay shot Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy there was enough unused footage left over to craft the bonus film Wake Up, Ron Burgundy. That’s why it should come as no surprise that he’s hard at work on another alternate film using extra footage from Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

“We did so much improv on this one that we can literally replace every single joke in the movie and put in alt scenes and alt improv runs,” McKay explained. “I think the editor’s working on it right now, with 250 new jokes.” Whether that film will also be released to theaters or end up as a DVD bonus is unforeseen. But McKay has an idea of where he’d like to see it, “I think it would be really funny to put it in theaters for midnight showings. I know that I personally, if I loved a movie and someone told me that, like if Airplane! had been released with all-new jokes, I’d be like, ‘you’ve got to be fucking kidding me!’ I’d see it in a second.”

No title or plot details about this alternate version have been given so let’s just speculate that it’s Ron Burgundy vs. The Martians. Because, y’know, who wouldn’t want to see Ron Burgundy go toe-to-toe with some Martians? (Empire)

This newest trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues slices off a big piece of plot detail. As Father Time rolls the clock from 1979 to 1980, Ron Burgundy must also roll with the changes as he fails upward into the world of cable news. However if you’re looking for more details about how the News Team ends up getting attacked by airborne scorpions or the situation that causes Ron to force feed a gallon of milk to a shark, you’ll have to see the film when it opens on Christmas Day.

Speaking of Christmas, I know what I want. That RV with a painting of Ron and Jesus on the side. If the RV is not available, I’ll settle for a t-shirt with that pairing. But it had better be a really comfortable t-shirt because I don’t intend to ever take it off.

If you watch football, you’ll know the commercials referenced in the title. If you don’t watch football, I…I can’t even pretend to understand how your brain works.

Will Ferrell got dressed up as Ron Burgundy and did 70 ads for the Dodge Durango, some apparently serialized, others stand-alone, and almost all of them very, very funny.

They’ll be trickling out over the coming months, presumably in anticipation of some comedy film Will Ferrell is attached to, which will be released around Christmas.

As we learned over a year ago on Conan, Anchorman is coming back with more of the same.

And in no way is that depressing.

All of our old favorites will be returning as well as a few new faces appearing as Ron, brick, Champ, and Brian run amok around NYC, trying to make their way in the face of the rise of cable news.

I’m sure it will be more interesting than the second part of that sentence makes it sound.

With every member of the comedy community already popping up in an Anchorman 2 cameo, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have had to start looking outside the box. And what’s further outside the box than casting the worst person in the world? Thus, there are reports that Kanye West has been spotted on the Atlanta set.

An eyewitness has reported to Hollywood.com that West was filming a scene on a rooftop with Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate. Honestly, that could have been anyone and this should only be considered a rumor. Says the witness, “he required an umbrella for shade most of the time he was on the roof.” Yeah, okay. So I guess Kanye is in this movie now.

Last time Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell teamed up in Bewitched, it kinda sorta killed her career a little bit. So she must be tickled pink at the news they’ll be reunited.

THR reports that she will play a “surprise, uncredited” role in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Way to ruin the surprise, THR. You’ve robbed audiences of the joy that comes with saying, “Oh hey.

The teaser for Anchorman 2 promises two things — the original cast are returning, and things are going to get schtanky. Since this is a Judd Apatow-produced film, we should probably anticipate a large number of comedy cameos.

Backing up that assumption comes news that Kristen Wiig is being eyed to play a love interest — for mentally-disabled weatherman Brick Tamland. The deal hasn’t been finalized yet, but Wiig would crush in that role. Although we’re horrified to see what Wiig will bring to the table. How does one top this:

Wes Mantooth, son of well-known saint, Dorothy Mantooth, was an important figure in the plot of Anchorman. Once an adversary, but now a respected ally, Vince Vaughn’s Channel 9 newsman is a fan favorite. Will we see him in the next chapter in the Anchorman saga?

Yeah, probably.

While doing press in the UK, Vaughn spoke to his involvement in the sequel and offered up some dream casting for the role of his mom, who really is such a saint.

“The chances are better than not that Wes Mantooth will be there,” he said.

And what of his Moms?

 ”I don’t know if anyone can fill that role, she’s such a saint. Angela Lansbury as Dorothy?”

Mmmmm… Lansbury’s okay and all, but there’s only one actress for Dorothy in my heart. And that would be Gert. She’s got saint written all over her.

Anyhow, while we patiently wait with our hands folded for the Anchorman 2 teaser trailer to power-slide its way online, we’ll have to make due with this teaser poster. As you can see, the Channel 4 news team has reassembled. Or at least their lower halves have. Actually, it looks like two of the guys only have one leg each now. So I can safely say that 37.5% of the Channel 4 news team has reassembled. Even so, I’m impressed. Those are nice wrinkle-free pants. Which is more than I can say for you, Daniel Craig.

The post Will Ferrell Is Putting The ‘Step Brothers’ Sequel At The Top Of His To-Do List appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Sitting down with Collider at a junket for the Spanish-language comedy Casa de Mi Padre, Will Ferrell conveyed that his highest priority right now is Step Brothers 2. Ferrell is about to get cracking with co-writer Adam McKay on a script that he hopes to shoot this fall.

That sounds like a very quick turnaround time, until you realize that the script to the original Step Brothers was probably scribbled on a pizza box with the words “wine mixer” and “boats and hos” underlined and circled several times.

This news means that the public will probably have to wait for Ferrell’s Thanksgiving football comedy Three Mississippi, which creates quite the dilemma. Do we root for Step Brothers 2, a wildly unnecessary (but probably hilarious) sequel, or do we root for Three Mississippi an original film, but not “original” in that Ferrell has done like a thousand sports comedies, and they’re generally his weakest stuff?

It’s conceivable that he could rock Step Brothers 2, then Three Mississippi, but considering the latter would probably require a holiday release, the timing won’t be easy. Maybe he could just make some more Funny or Die videos with that baby.

Will Ferrell Talks (And Probably Yells) About ‘Southern Rivals’ And ‘Anchorman 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/will-ferrell-talks-and-probably-yells-about-southern-rivals-and-anchorman-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/will-ferrell-talks-and-probably-yells-about-southern-rivals-and-anchorman-2/#comments Sat, 30 Apr 2011 01:02:39 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=209828 Will Ferrell drops some knowledge on 'Anchorman 2' and the more immediate 'Southern Rivals'.

Will Ferrell has intimated at a press conference for Everything Must Go that he’s looking to shoot the comedy Jay Roach‘s Southern Rivals this fall, costarring Zach Galifianakis. The film focuses on two rival politicians competing in a small South Carolina district. It is understood by everyone that this film will make $932 billion dollars at the box office and provide fraternity houses everywhere with enough quotes to hold them over until Anchorman 2 comes out in 2018 or whenever.

2018 may be not be too gross an exaggeration for an Anchorman 2 timeline, as Ferrell claimed that Universal were being “idiots” in not being able to get the numbers to pencil for the widely-anticipated sequel. Of course, their reservations may be warranted consideirng Ferrell and McKay last proposed Anchorman 2 as a musical. I’m not saying it wouldn’t be awesome, but I understand why they aren’t falling all over themselves to get it done ASAP.

So, rather than hold your breath for Anchorman 2, you may want to take in a deep breath of Southern Rivals. Try not to inhale any beard hairs. (Playlist)

Ever since the news that an Anchorman sequel would not happen, I’ve been very sad. Food doesn’t taste right and I don’t notice the birds singing anymore. The news should make no one sadder than director Adam McKay, who seems to have accepted the loss. In fact, he’s looking onward and upward.

ScreenJunkies caught up with the director of The Other Guys over the weekend and he told us he’s interested in bringing back Brennan and Dale for a sequel to the cult comedy Step Brothers. That poses important questions. Where would he take the characters? How have they grown?? And why doesn’t he secretly film an Anchorman sequel using the Step Brothers funding? If not for me, do it for Christina Applegate.

FIND OUT THE STE BROTHERS 2 PLOT DETAILS AFTER THE JUMP…

McKay: “We’re kicking around the idea of Step Brothers 2. We feel like there’s way more fat to be mined there. While it isn’t quite the legend that Anchorman is, it has built kind of a nice following. We think it could be a pretty fun one.”
 
SJ: What would the plot of the sequel be?

“A different kind of immature. The idea is that when we meet them, they’ve gotten more mature. They actually have jobs. They actually do have a semblance of a life. One of them’s married and has a kid. They’re still kind of goofballs but they’v taken three or four steps. Then we have an idea for something happens that knocks him back to square one, and one of the brothers, John C. Reilly sort of instigates it, like ‘we can’t take this anymore.’ And things go really bad, they’re lives kind of fall apart. They have to pull it back together is sort of the basic structure. I won’t say the ideas but we have a couple ideas. We had ideas in the first one that we never did that we always thought were pretty funny.”
 
SJ: If you couldn’t get Anchorman 2 greenlit, how will you be able to do so with a less popular film?

McKay: “I think any sequel you’re up against it. I think the legendary comedy is worse to do a sequel to. We kind of knew going into it that it would never be as good as the first one. You just have to accept it and move ahead. I mean, Godfather II I think is the only one maybe better than the first, right? Empire better than Star Wars, I don’t know about that. Terminator 2 is interesting. It’s still tough though, that original idea out of the gate. Godfather II changed it up enough, that was the trick that it became a different world.”

After severely cutting the budget, Anchorman 2 is still a no-go with Paramount. There was a glimmer of hope earlier this week when the original cast agreed to cut their prices, but Paramount decided to pass all the same.I imagine it went something like this:ADAM McKAY: So there you have it, The Further Legends of Ron Burgundy!!PARAMOUNT EXEC: Very funny. But I'll need to consult with my adviser.SLAMS MAGIC 8 BALL DOWN ON DESK.PARMOUNT EXEC: Oooh. It is decidely not so.

Sadly, the unjust box office failure of Brüno has caused a catchphrase drought, one that won't be remedied by the Channel 4 news team apparently. After failing to reunite all the players for Anchorman 2, Will Ferrell is waving the white flag of surrender. He tells IMDB, "I thought we were doing it. Now I've heard it's going to be too hard to get everyone together."That's sad for the many fans of Anchorman, but totally understandable. Will Ferrell, Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner are far too busy providing cameos in one another's movies to actually get together to film a movie.
