One of the most-quoted films of recent years -- Will Ferrell's 2004 "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" -- is finally getting a sequel. And its two teaser trailers are already providing plenty of one-liners of their own.
"The great ones always return. And when they do, one thing is for sure: Their hair will be perfect." So begins the just-released second teaser for "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues."
The new clip follows the same format as the first teaser, which was released almost a year ago. It features the news team of Champ Kind (David Koechner), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), and of course, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) walking out from a wall of lights to the music of the Alan Parson Project. And in classic "Anchorman" fashion, it allows each member of that team to take an in-character one-liner or as Burgundy calls it, "a little fun catchphrase." In both teasers, Carell's dimwitted weatherman derails things. Take a look below.
The new film is set to open Dec. 20 with a bevy of guest stars, including Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson, Nicole Kidman, and Kirsten Dunst, and several previous Ferrell collaborators like Kristen Wiig, Tina Fey, Sacha Baron Cohen, and John C. Reilly. This time around, Burgundy and his new wife/co-anchor Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) have left San Diego to helm New York's first 24-hour news channel. Are you planning to see the film? What do you expect from it?
