Anchorman 2 will get a week theatrical run with an R rating.
Yes, Anchorman 2 with a “Super R rating”. Starting February 28th, we’ll be getting one single week to see over 763 entirely new jokes and such on this new version of Anchorman 2. How that will relate in an over 2 hour long version of the movie we are hopeful at the least. Will it be worth it? That’ll be up to you.
Press Release: Paramount Pictures and Gary Sanchez Productions today announced an unprecedented theatrical release of an all new cut of the hit film “ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES,” starring Will Ferrell, in theaters in the U.S. and U.K. beginning February 28th for one-week only.
The new version of the film, titled “ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES: SUPER SIZED R RATED VERSION,” will feature 763 entirely new jokes from legendary anchorman Ron Burgundy and America’s favorite 24-hour global news team. The film is now rated R.
“When my editor told me we had a whole different version of the movie that was more than two hours long with nearly 800 new jokes, I was shocked. But when Paramount said they were actually going to put it in theaters, I did an 1950’s spit take. If you’re a hardcore Anchorman fan go see this. If you’re not, stay very far away,” said writer / director Adam McKay.
