The first trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. This looks to take the story in a fun direction with newscaster Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and friends having disappeared as legend since 1970s San Diego now reassembled in 1980s New York. Before you can say ‘curly perm’ and ‘bouclé’, Ron is sporting a graph paper check suit and fur trim leather coat.
Costume designer Susan Matheson (Step Brothers, Jack Reacher) has pulled out all the stops here. With a returning ensemble that includes Brick (Steve Carrell), Brian (Paul Rudd) and Champ (David Koechner) initially more than a little seventies dated (especially Brian who is rocking the badmutha undercover cop vibe), she plays up to the film’s fish-out-of-water plot. These are scotch men walking into a gin and tonic world.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues also starring Christina Applegate, Megan Good and Kristen Wiig is released on 20th December.
