Anchorman: The Legend Continues (or Anchorman 2, for those of you with short attention spans) dropped a new teaser onto the internet this morning (as if new teases for Skyfall and The Master weren’t enough for one day). A bit of a rush job, there’s no new footage in the Anchorman: The Legend Continues teaser, but it does round up Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner, and feature series of new one liners: “This time, I’m on top,” “it’s gonna get stanky,” and “in this movie, we play witches!” Check out the ridiculous clip below.
The teaser comes courtesy of Funny or Die!, naturally, features about a minute of mugging from the original cast, with Steve Carell stealing the quick show with his blank-faced awkwardness. Pretty funny stuff for a film that hasn’t even begun filming yet.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues won’t begin filming until later this year, and won’t hit theaters until 2013, but hopefully the teaser will tide us all over before the real footage starts slipping out. For now, dig into the teaser poster for the film, and start counting down the days until 2013.
As we previously reported, the film concerns “when all the news started changing with the 24-hours news cycle in ’78 or ’79, All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors, and any time you’re talking about diversity and the Action News team, that’s always fun to deal with,” according to director Adam McKay.
Stay classy, readers.
