News team… reunite!
Paramount released the first official trailer for Adam McKay’s Anchorman: The Legend Continues – I mean, the first trailer that has actual footage from the film, and isn’t just the four members of Ron Burgandy’s news team riffing from a stage. It solidifies what we’ve heard about the sequel: the action moves to New York City, where Ron Burgandy (Will Ferrell) goes out for a job at a 24-hour news station. But it weaves a funky ‘70s and ‘80s vibe that would have Austin Powers feeling groovy.
Here’s the trailer, followed by a few of our favorite screencaps, which we think will help you set the retro mood. Oh, and Kristen Wiig as a female Brick? Yeah, that’s pretty perfect.
Not enough? The studio, in anticipation for the trailer, dropped this mustachioed one sheet to help Anchorman fans stay classy:
The Anchorman sequel arrives in theaters on December 20, an early Christmas gift for advocates of silly (and slightly racist) comedy.
