“Anchorman 2″ DVD & Blu-ray Release In April
Paramount Home Media Distribution will bring Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues to DVD and Blu-ray April 1, with a digital debut March 11.
The Blu-ray combo pack ($39.99) includes three versions of the film, including the theatrical version, an unrated version, and the Super-Sized R-Rated Version with 763 new jokes (replacing jokes from the other versions). The set includes more than four hours of bonus material, including commentary by director Adam McKay, producer Judd Apatow and stars Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner. The Blu-ray also includes more than 90 minutes of deleted, extended and alternate scenes, plus gag reels, five behind-the-scenes featurettes, table reads, cast auditions and more.
Ferrell, Carell, Rudd and Koechner reprise their roles from the 2004 original Anchorman, as they take on the ’80s and the first 24-hour news channel. The film also stars Christina Applegate, Meagan Good, James Marsden and several celebrity cameos. The film earned more than $125 million at the domestic box office.
The DVD includes just the theatrical version of the film.
R-Rated “Anchorman 2″ Hitting Theaters for One Week
Get ready for more Ron Burgundy.
Will Ferrell’s scotch-loving newscaster is returning to theaters with an R-rated version of Anchorman 2, this one featuring 763 new jokes.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues: Super Sized R Rated Version hits theaters on Feb. 28. The New York Times first reported the news, and Ferrell himself also spoke about it on The Tonight Show Thursday.
“When my editor told me we had a whole different version of the movie that was more than two hours long with nearly 800 new jokes, I was shocked,” said writer-director Adam McKay in a statement. But when Paramount said they were actually going to put it in theaters, I did an 1950′s spit take. If you’re a hardcore Anchorman fan go see this. If you’re not, stay very far away.”
It’ll open against Son of God, itself an edited/recut version of History’s The Bible.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, released in December, has grossed more than $170 million worldwide. It reunited the cast from the 2004 original, including Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner.
The Independent Interview
With the 70s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues to take the nation’s first 24-hour news channel by storm. Writer Adam McKay and actress Christina Applegate talk about the much anticipated sequel.
Christina Applegate ready for Anchorman 3
Christina Applegate wants to start work on ‘Anchorman 3′.
The ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ actress – who plays sexy newsreader Veronica Corningstone in the film series – is upset it took so long to get a sequel made to the original 2004 film, and can’t wait to start on another installment.
She told AccessHollywood.com: ”I don’t want to wait nine years. I would do [another] one next year if I could.”
Meanwhile Steve Carrell – who stars as part of the fictional Channel 4 news team in the movie alongside Christina, Paul Rudd, Will Ferrell and David Koechner – says they shot a huge musical number for the movie, but it was later left out from the final cut.
He said: ”There was an entire musical number that we spent a week shooting
”It was cut from the final movie. It was very good and we all thought, ‘Boy, this is gonna be a real cornerstone of this entire thing,’ but I guess it just took a left turn.”
However, Paul is sure the scene will surface at some point, most likely as a DVD extra.
He said: ”It was lengthy and it also was happening at a time where the story had really kicked in and at a certain point, you have to take into consideration the film’s running length and get in essentially the story, but I think that that will surface at some point.”
Two New “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” Trailers

It’s so easy to love Christina Applegate as an actress—I mean, Married With Children, Anchorman, Hall Pass (to name just a few)?—but there’s something so down-to-earth and cool about her that I’ll bet she’d be an amazing brunch date.
As you know, the last few years have brought lots of Big Life Stuff Christina’s way: She had a double mastectomy, she had a baby, she married Martyn LeNoble. Not to mention she’s been working steadily (I’m kind of creepily excited for the Anchorman sequel) the whole time, heading her own Right Action for Women foundation, and collaborating with Asics on a collection to benefit breast cancer awareness. Uh, whew.
I was lucky enough to do a Q&A with Christina about her family, her health, her foundation, and her collection—what she had to say was pretty inspiring.
So many of us have found inspiration in your breast cancer story. Can you tell us more about your organization, Right Action for Women?
Christina: Today, more than 250,000 women under the age of 40 in the U.S. are breast cancer survivors. Early detection is often crucial for women to prevent the devastating effects of this disease. I founded Right Action for Women as a way to help educate women about what it means to be at an increased risk for breast cancer.
As a busy working mom, you are undoubtedly very busy—but still need to focus on taking care of your and your family’s health. Lots of us are in similar positions (we want to take care of themselves, but are low on time)—what are your suggestions?
Christina: There’s never enough time in the day to accomplish everything, but I think it’s important to find a balance between family, work and staying healthy. Being a mother has reaffirmed the value of making smart choices for my life and my family’s well-being.
Speaking of smart choices…what’s your exercise routine like? Do you have any favorite workouts that keep you energized or feeling your best?
Christina: Working out is part of my daily routine. It’s one of the reasons I was so psyched to work with Asics. I try to get out at least three to four days a week. When Sadie was younger, I would run out with her in the stroller. Now, we exercise at home doing kid-friendly activities. It is great for mother-daughter bonding!
Your new Asics collection is so pretty! What elements did you make sure to incorporate into the styles?
Christina: Fitness is a large part of my life and, like most women, I love fashion! It was important to make the shoe not only feel great but also look great. I had some creative input with Asics on the line, but the superior technology and design the brand is known for is kept throughout, including the Pink Ribbon laces, which I think are a nice touch, making this shoe different from any other Asics sneaker on the market. I also wanted to be sure these were my favorite running shoes, the Asics GT-1000 2 performance running sneakers. I am already working closely with Asics on designing our 2014 collection.
That’s so awesome! So what is the number one piece of health wisdom you’d like to pass along all of us Glamour girls?
Christina: I want to encourage women, particularly younger women, to understand what it is to be at an increased risk for breast cancer. Talk to your family, understand their health history, and discuss screening programs with a health-care professional. Make smart and pro-active choices to live a long and happy life. And I’m thrilled that Asics is supporting Right Action for Women for a second year. Support from Asics has helped Right Action for Women give hundreds more women access to early detection screenings. The site offers a quick and easy quiz to help think about their health and their lives when it comes to breast cancer risks, as well as resources for support, inspirational stories of survivorship and access to RAW’s MRI assistance program.
Um, love her.
By the way, Christina’s Asics Right Action for Women Collection is available throughout the month of October; Asics America has guaranteed a minimum donation of $75,000 (up to $100,000) from the specially marked products made available at retail stores nationwide.
