While Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana and Champion 'Champ' Kind promote their comeback in convincing ways, Brick Tamland makes things awkward with his clumsy look.
"Anchorman: The Legend Continues" has debuted not just one but two official teaser trailers. One of the promo videos is unveiled via Funny or Die, presenting Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Champion "Champ" Kind and Brick Tamland gushing about their comeback to the big screen.
"Hey America, did you miss my hot breath in your ear?" asks Burgundy. The introduction is almost pitch perfect, but is ruined when Tamland clumsily chimes in with his signature nerdy look, "In this movie we play witches." Meanwhile, the other footage presents the same scenes shown in the bootleg video which hit the web a day prior.
Official plot details of "Anchorman 2" are still kept under tight wraps. Though so, director/screenwriter Adam McKay once hinted that Burgundy, along with his Action News Team, will face new challenge with trend change. McKay elaborated further that the "Anchorman" sequel will be set in the late 1970s where 24 hours news trend has just begun.
"All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors and any time you're talking about the diversity and the Action News team, that's always fun to deal with," McKay explained.
Returning as Burgundy, Fantana, Kind and Tamland respectively are Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Steve Carell. The sequel is expected to begin its principal photography in February 2013.
