Paramount To Release R-Rated Version of ‘Anchorman 2’


Paramaount Pictures is preparing to release a new version of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. The original version hit theaters back in December and earned the studio over $125 million in the US alone. The cast reunited director Adam McKay with co-writer and lead Will Ferrell, as well as Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner. Originally cut for a PG-13 release, the studio has an entirely different version of the film from director McKay, which pretty much re-writes the entire movie, cutting out all of the original jokes and adding new ones in their place. The new cut is over two hours long and will supposedly be given an R rating and will be released in the US and UK. A release date has not been announced yet.

Anchorman 2, American Hustle Both Holiday Hits For 2013


Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues was finally released to theaters across the country yesterday. Fans of the original comedy hit starring Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner have been waiting almost a decade for a sequel to be made, and now their prize has come out just in time for Christmas! The new movie reunites the original cast with director Adam McKay (Step Brothers, Talladega Nights) and brings the anchormen of 1970s San Diego into the world of 1980s New York City. While Anchorman promises to be the hit comedy this holiday season, the surprise crime drama American Hustle is also gaining momentum from critics who are praising both the writing and acting for the movie. Revolving around a plot that includes a con man who works for the FBI, Hustle hits theaters tomorrow with an all star cast that includes Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence and has already secured 7 Golden Globe nominations including Best Picture, Best Director (David O. Russell) and Best Actor for Christian Bale and Amy Adams, and Best Supporting Actor for Brad Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. If you’re not so big on comedies then definitely make this your holiday movie to go and see on the big screen, but check out the trailer here on MADE before you go anywhere!!

Anchorman 2 Release Moved Ahead 2 Days


Since the summer there has been a lot of excitement and speculation going around about the long awaited sequel to 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy starring Will Farrell. Also in the movie is the hilarious trio of Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and Dave Koechner as Burgundy’s news team members, as well as Christina Applegate and Fred Willard. Will Farrell has spent a lot of his recent time campaigning for the movie across the country, appearing at schools and giving speeches in character, on top of some other publicity stunts as his famous alter ego. Now the sequel is being moved ahead from it’s original December 20th release date to Wednesday, December 18th. Interesting choice to release on a Wednesday, but maybe not; especially considering winter break is starting for the majority of students across the country. Both the new film and the original are being directed by Adam McKay and released through Paramount. We’ll see in just a few weeks if the early release helps them beat out the holiday competition.
