We are less than three full months away from the return of Will Ferrell’s classic character, anchorman Ron Burgundy. Not only is the sequel to the hit film Anchorman coming out in December, but Ferrell is busting out the character to make the promotional rounds ahead of that release date.
His latest appearance sees him catering to the British crowd, spoofing on the Goodwood Revival, a three day racing festival held in the United Kingdom. As Ferrell so aptly puts it, the festival is essentially a bunch of “older” British men racing around in vintage cars trying to swoon younger women.
Here’s a brief synopsis of Anchorman 2 per IMDb:
With the 70s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy, returns to take New York’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.
Anchorman 2 is set to come out this December 20th and all of the original cast is slated to be reprising their roles. The question now is can the sequel live up to the hype that has been built in the shadow of the classic original. While the nostalgic idea of another Anchorman movie is pleasing, we can only have so many one-liners before a lack of story would make itself known.
Hopefully that’s not the case, and we will find out this December.
