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.

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.

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.

Foxcatcher
To all the prognosticators who have already sat back and considered the awards season over, time to wake up. Bennett Miller, who has gone two-for-two with Best Pictures nominations for "Capote" and "Moneyball," returns with "Foxcatcher" and goddamn if he doesn't look like he's back in top form.

With Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" entering the Oscar fray it's time for Sony Pictures Classics to start hustling the picture, but it seems that not everyone in their starry cast — which includes Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Sienna Miller — will be immediately recognizable. Yes, that's Steve Carell, and he's got a new prosthetic nose.

Here's another movie to shake up the predictions of Oscar prognosticators. Largely keeping on the down low for most of the year, "Moneyball" director Bennett Miller's wrestling/murder drama "Foxcatcher" is coming out to play with a new studio and release date, marking another movie to keep a firm eye on over the next four months.

It was bound to happen: Ron Burgundy, the egotistical news anchor played by Will Ferrell in 2004's"Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" and this winter's "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," will have his own leather-bound book (undoubtedly smelling of rich mahogany). According to Rolling Stone, a new book supposedly authored by Burgundy will be out on November 19th. But that's not all: the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features Burgundy and his fellow newscasters on the cover, also offers some insight into the film's plot as well as revealing what would have been had the film come to fruition in its original form: as a lavish Broadway musical.

With "Grown Ups 2" starring "SNL" alumnus Adam Sandler and "King of Queens" star Kevin James opening this weekend, and "The Way Way Back" with Steve Carell of "The Office" fame out since last week, your local multiplex will soon be playing a choice of films with star actors who originally made their names in TV comedy shows. All three of these guys have carved out the kind of big-screen success that means we arguably now associate them more with movies than with television, but that's a trick that many have tried and only few have really pulled off.

The Way Way Back
Back in 2012, “The Descendants” took home the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, and most people were probably surprised to see Alexander Payne (a previous winner for “Sideways” and nominee for “Election”) flanked by Dean Pelton from “Community” and that dude from “Club Dread.” For the first time in Payne’s career he had not collaborated with his usual co-writer Jim Taylor, but instead rewritten a previously existing screenplay by the aforementioned Jim Rash and Nat Faxon (which was in itself an adaptation of a novel). Many assumed that it was Payne’s award to take home and the other two were just lucky to be standing up there. But with their directorial debut (and second screenplay) for “The Way, Way Back,” Rash and Naxon prove that it was no fluke.
