It’s taken nine years and a clever promotional strategy to come around, but the UK premiere of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is finally taking place tonight!
So who’s excited to see what comedic capers our favourite news team are going to get up to this time round? Premières have already taken place in Sydney back in November and more recently in Ireland on 9th December. The director and the four main cast members were in attendance, so UK fans will be eager to find out who else will be in attendance for the London premiere.
The sequel to 2004 hit Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy leaves the 70s behind. San Diego’s top-rated newsman Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) returns, but this time he is intent on taking New York by storm and host the city’s first 24-hour news channel. The big question is: Why can’t the news be fun?
Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Christina Applegate have all reprised their roles, while James Marsden, Kristen Wiig and Harrison Ford join the cast.
In the meantime, Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy has taken part in the “Moments Worth Paying For” Campaign, reporting a special news bulletin about the importance of “making the right choice when it comes to your evening’s entertainment”. Watch the clip below:
