Paramount Pictures will be re-releasing Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues in theaters next week. What's great about the re-release is that it will be an R-rated cut that includes 763 new jokes.
Director Adam McKay talked to New York Times about the recut and says that 95% of the jokes are new, and this extended version adds about 20 extra minutes to the film. He goes on to say,
“We started talking and realized, we can replace every single joke in the movie with another joke, you should feel free to get up, go the bathroom. This is a stitched up, Frankenstein version, with misfires, obscure send-ups and plenty of jokes to match Mr. Ferrell’s off-color jacket.”
It's going to be really fun to see the same movie packed fun of different kinds of jokes. The first cut of the film was a blast to watch, and I imagine this recut will be just as funny. The super-sized cut of Anchorman: The Legend Continues arrives on February 28th for one week only.
