Last week we got to see the first promo poster for Anchorman 2, which showed little more than the feet of the new cast. We also however learned the sequel’s name, Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Today we get to see the first official trailer for the movie as it hits the internet. A lot of people, myself included, are excited about this sequel which stars Will Ferrel, Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell. The one minute trailer is still a teaser, and it is there to whet the appetite, which it certainly does.
The trailer opens with the four guys walking down stage with dramatic lights and the sound of their footsteps behind them, tying in with the promo poster we got to see last week. In this tiny first snippet introducing the movie, Ron (in his signature burgundy suit and holding a mug of coffee), Brick, Brian and Champ are, self-reflexively, being filmed making the trailer, and each of them has to deliver one single, dramatic sentence, whatever pops into their head.
“Get ready to ride the palomino stallion… we’re going to be broadcasting from a hot tub full of scotch” are the first two lines, and already the tone is set. They’re back, baby! I’m getting excited! What do you think of this teaser??
