Anchorman: The Legend Continues
Fans waited a long, long time for "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," but they are being amply rewarded for their patience. In addition to the theatrical cut which dropped in December, this Friday — for one week only — a super-sized R-rated version is hitting theaters, featuring a whole new cut of the movie, made up entirely of alternate jokes and scenes that were dropped, including a musical number. And that's not all, as the home video release will feature contain the theatrical cut, the R-rated version and an Unrated version too, giving you three different ways to experience Ron Burgundy. But let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
When Will Ferrell and Adam McKay get together, they shoot a lot of material. And as fans of "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy" already know, there was so much leftover material from the making of the comedy, the flimmakers were able to stitch together an entirely new movie, "Wake Up, Ron Burgudy: The Lost Movie," which was included as a DVD extra for the film. And, they've pretty much done the same thing again.

Sundance Review: David Wain's 'They Came Together' Gives Assembly-Line Rom-Coms A Brisk, Bruising Rebuttal

They Came Together
A parody that loves, knows and understands what it’s mocking, David Wain’s “They Came Together” (co-written with Michael Showalter) lovingly nuzzles up to the plots, clichés and tropes of the modern big-studio rom-com specifically, only to then slash at the jugular to spill their anemic, overly sweet blood. It knows how to mock cliché big things, like jokes about set-dressing and music video montages; it’s also wise about small matters, right down to the font and the framing device.

Paul Rudd
"Oh, that's all rumor, man. There's nothing I know, sorry," Paul Rudd said last week about his rumored participation in Marvel's "Ant-Man." Fibs? Couldn't speak to it yet? Well, the "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" actor is apparently now in early talks to play the lead character, presumably Hank Pym (the comics has two different Ant-Men who wore the bit-sized mantle).

Anchorman: The Legend Continues
Heading into "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," the question shouldn't be whether or not the sequel can top the original, because the answer is already obvious: it can't. When "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy" arrived, it was Will Ferrell's first stab at leading a movie on his own, and the box office results spoke to his multiplex popularity at the time: it was middling. But everyone knows the narrative by now, with 'Anchorman' catching much more fire on DVD, and becoming in the nine years since, nothing short of a relentlessly quotable contemporary comedy classic.

Iron Man 3, Iron Patriot, Don Cheadle
It's been quiet since October, when rumors surfaced that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd were the frontrunners to play "Ant-Man" for Marvel and director Edgar Wright. Gordon-Levitt quickly denied the rumors as empty scuttlebutt, and now, on the promotional tour for "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," Rudd has confirmed that the rumor was about as legitimate as Brian Fantana's account of first love.

Now, these are more like it. Only earlier today, we were talking around the Playlist water cooler about how the marketing for "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," which has involved a slightly underwhelming teaser trailer, Will Ferrell shooting 70 (!) in-character Dodge Durango ads, and as of yesterday, a Ben & Jerrys flavor called "Scotchy Scotch Scotch," has risked turning Ron Burgundy from the central character of the funniest pure comedy of the 00s to a corporate pitchman whose new movie was looking worryingly disappointing.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Paul Rudd for ‘Ant-Man’
Well, if a place can be found for Vin Diesel in the Marvel-verse then anything is possible. That said, the two names emerging as front-runners for "Ant-Man" are surprising, but not exactly unpleasant.

Review: ‘All Is Bright’ Starring Paul Rudd & Paul Giamatti Is A Mostly Joyless Misfire

Director Phil Morrison hasn't made a film since his exceptional debut indie, "Junebug," which launched Amy Adams in 2005. Brimming with life, even without the Oscar-nominated and very-worthy firecracker Adams performance, the movie is flush with an idiosyncratic humanity and especially complex and uniquely written characters. However, his long belated follow-up, "All Is Bright,” arriving some eight years after his auspicious beginning, possesses little traces of the spark that made "Junebug" so special.
