Today, Paramount is releasing Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues on Blu-ray, featuring three different cuts of the hit comedy sequel that opened last December.  After losing his job, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is hired by a 24 hour news station that is set to revolutionize TV in the 1980s, reuniting him with his old team of Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Champ Kind (David Koechner) and Brick Tamland (Steve Carell).

A decade after Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy became a cult classic, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is a fun sequel that allows the actors to all reprise their now iconic roles.  Filled with the same sort of totally ridiculous humour that made the original such a big hit, this is an often very funny sequel that also serves as a highly amusing satire of modern broadcast news, and the Blu-ray is sure to please fans with a Super-Sized Version that features a grand total of “763 new jokes.”

Along with three different versions of the film, the Blu-ray also includes commentary with director Adam McKay and the main cast, a barrage of deleted scenes, several “behind the scenes” featurettes and more.

The theatrical cut of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is 118 minutes and rated PG.  The extended cut is 122 minutes and the Super-Sized Version is 143 minutes, both rated 14A.
