The Anchorman 2 Teaser Is Here!
It's jean-creamin' time!

21 May 2012  |  Written by Chris Hewitt

Let’s not play coy. We’re all mature adults here, with access to the internet. We know you’ve seen the teaser trailer for Anchorman 2 even though it’s only premiered in the States, where it’s been attached to prints of The Dictator. And you know that we’ve seen the teaser trailer for Anchorman 2. And you know that we know that you know that we know and so on and so forth until the end of time.

But now we can all rejoice and unite in our love of the teaser to the most eagerly-awaited comedy sequel of all time, for finally it’s arrived online. Legitimately, that is.

 

It could be construed as a tad early for a teaser, given that filming on Anchorman: The Legend Continues (if that is to be the new title) doesn’t start until next February. But clearly Adam McKay and Will Ferrell were so buoyed by the overwhelming reaction to the return of Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Champ Kind and Brick Tamland that they couldn’t wait to give viewers a taste of what to expect.

And, boy, it feels good to see – and hear – the Action News team in business again. We won’t spoil it for you, just in case you haven’t been naughty and checked it out on YouTube before now, but we will say that there’s a special kind of joy to be had from watching Steve Carell’s Brick Tamland freeze in horror while his brain lags 20 paces behind his tongue.

We will also say that a) there’s no sign of Veronica Corningstone here (McKay told Empire that she will probably be back, but there seems to be a clear focus on the idea of the quartet) and b) Paul Rudd’s Brian Fantana is sporting a beard that doesn’t seem very Brian Fantana-like. We’d expect Brian to have a beard that was altogether bushier and Kristofferson-like, but since Rudd is currently filming Admissions, perhaps he’s wearing it for that role.

Oh and c) we love it. From early signs that Ron’s braggadocio remains intact, to catchphrases aplenty, there’s only one thing to say about this teaser: it’s time to cream your jeans.

ADDENDUM! Funny Or Die, the website co-orchestrated by one Mr W Ferrell is running a separate teaser with different jokes. Enjoy below!

I'm confused empire, why are you getting excited about the sequal to a film you reviewed as 3 stars? If you inform me that the reviewer has left the company or been hung all will be forgiven xxxx More
