After almost 10 years, Will Ferrell returns to the big screen this week as Ron Burgundy with Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Accompanying San Diego’s top-rated newsman is his team: wife and co-anchor Veronica Corningstone-Burgundy (Christina Applegate), reporter Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) and sportscaster Champ Kind (David Koechner).
This time around — after obtaining fame, fortune, and success — the hit news team begins to unravel, leaving the group in complete disarray. Just when all hope seemed to be lost, first ever 24-hour news network GNN, decides to recruit them. This brings the team to New York City to battle rival Jack Lime (James Marsden) for the top spot in ratings. The new film is loaded with stars from the previous film among several new additions to the cast. The film is also jam-packed with surprising cameos, which will remain nameless here.
