Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues - Trailer Breakdown!
Adam McKay talks us through the key points of Ron Burgundy’s return

submit to reddit

Unless you’ve spent the last couple of days living as a smelly pirate hooker on Whore Island, you’ll know that the BIG trailer of the week was the long-awaited teaser proper for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which gave us our first glimpse at actual footage from the long-awaited return of Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 news team.

Normally, we’d attempt a trailer breakdown on our lonesome, but for something this monumental we needed reinforcements. So we got out our conch and bellowed for assistance from Adam McKay, the maverick genius who directed and co-wrote (with Will Ferrell) the movie. He was more than happy to give us some fresh and startling insights into the world of Ron, Brick, Brian and Champ. Warning: after you’ve read this, you may have to make a visit to the pants store.

The voiceover

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues Trailer

The trailer starts with a reassuring voice; that of Bill Kurtis, a real-life news anchor who was recruited by Ferrell and McKay to narrate the first movie, the spin-off Wake Up, Ron Burgundy!, and the two previous teaser trailers as well. Kurtis is back on voiceover duties for the film itself.

“We all know about Bill Kurtis and what he’s done since the first Anchorman,” laughs McKay. “He lives up in the mountains, you gotta go track him down, he doesn’t have a phone. He knows his voice has a power and he wants to make sure that those who want it really want it. He’s the best guy. He is one of those anchormen who’s got the perfect hair and the voice, but he’s also self-aware. He gets the joke. He is the voice of Anchorman.”
