The latest trailer for “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” finally gives us a look at footage from the sequel, and just about all we can say is “Super duper!”
We’re also getting our first taste of the continuing story of the Channel 4 News Teams. Ron, Brick, Champ, and Brian are getting back together to form a 24-hour news network. Also, it’s the 80s. So there’s that too.
For a sequel whose original is held in such high regard, especially within the fraternities on college campuses, “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” certainly looks like it’s living up to the high expectations.
We’re going to have to wait a while, though, until we get to see the whole thing. “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” hits theaters on December 20.

Ron Burgundy is back in ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,’ and — as we’re informed — more Burgundy-er than ever. And now there’s a new trailer that shows the news team in full force.
Where the previous trailers featured no actual footage from the film, this new trailer establishes that the film is set in the ’80s and that it’s about Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Champ Kind (David Koechner), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) and Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) working for a CNN-type organization.
But more than anything there is silliness. From the return of Baxter and Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), to Ferrell going on a date with Meagan Good’s character (and then going to her family’s home for dinner), to the introduction of Brick’s love interest (played by Kristen Wiig), there are some funny jokes here. Trailers are rarely good barometers for quality, but we can’t wait for this one.
‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ will be in theaters on December 20, though it’s worth noting there will be a slightly different trailer attached to ‘World War Z‘ this weekend. Here’s the film’s synopsis:

Fox searchlight has finally released the first official images from director Steve McQueen’s highly anticipated Twelve Years a Slave, the film is based on the 1853 autobiography of Solomon Northrup.
Chiwetel Ejiofor (Children of Men) plays Northup, a free, educated African-American living in New York City, but kidnapped in Washington City in 1841, and forced into slavery at a Louisiana cotton plantation until his rescue 12 years later.
The slave narrative which gets an ‘R’ rating for: ‘violence/cruelty, some nudity and brief sexuality’ also stars an impressive cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Giamatti, Quvenzhane Wallis, Sarah Paulson, Paul Dano, Scoot McNairy, Garrett Dillahunt, Alfre Woodard, Dwight Henry, Michael K. Williams, and Brad Pitt.
What we’ve come to categorised as “montages” nowadays started life in the 1920s, when the Soviets decided to get innovative and change cinema forever. Whereas the Russians defined “montage” as cutting between different angles as opposed to just changing scenes completely (big at the time), “montage” has since come to signify a series of shots, usually accompanied by an inspirational and rather cheesy soundtrack cue, charting the progress of an underdog as they try to become more awesome at something.
The ’80s is specifically renowed for its montages, for reasons that are yet to be explained by anyone. Montages come in all shapes and sizes, of course, but there are few specific types that we’ve become accustomed to due to years of exposure: the good old “training” montage remains a favourite of sorts, though the “rise to power” and “character working their way through a competition” montages have their fans, too. Though we look back on most of cinema’s retro-inclined montages like they’re some far-out dream, we all secretly enjoy them, don’t we?
To celebrate a history of the most eccentric and less artful movie montages, here’s 10 of the most ridiculously awesome examples that have been bestowed upon society. Most of the montages I’ve included on this list have dated horribly, and a bunch of them may be bordering on the absurd or bizarrely over the top, but what we absolutely cannot deny is that all of them ignite a strange, transcendant fire stirring deep inside each and every one of us. Or whatever: it’s mostly ’cause they’re unintentionally hilarious.

Things are looking up for Lloyd and Harry. EW has confirmed that Universal Pictures picked up the North American distribution rights for Dumb and Dumber To, the in-development sequel to the hit 1994 Jim Carrey/Jeff Daniels comedy Dumb and Dumber. Deadline first reported the news.

Stars Carrey and Daniels are also expected to reprise their iconic roles. According to the report, the sequel will find the two friends on a road trip.
