Step Brothers
While "Step Brothers 2" seems less and less likely as time goes on, the good news is six years after their last full blown team-up, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Adam McKay are getting ready to reunite and hopefully make us laugh. Really, really hard.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues
Yeah, we're aware of the date. Either way, "Anchorman" is a cash cow Paramount will keep squeezing the teats of, and if all this only serves to remind people that "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" is now on home video, well, mission accomplished.

The Big Short Adam McKay
While he's best known for capturing the various absurdly hilarious things that come out of the mouth of Will Ferrell, Adam McKay has a serious side to him, that perhaps showed through most publicly with the compelling (if wildly random and out of place) closing credits of "The Other Guys." The end of the 2010 buddy comedy featuring Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg featured an extended animated sequence detailing how ponzi schemes work, the ugly side of bailing out banks and corporations and more. It probably wasn't the best venue for that kind of stuff, but now McKay has a vehicle that will let him blow off some steam.

Earlier this week, Paul Rudd visited “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” to welcome Fallon to his new gig as host and, ostensibly, to plug the rerelease of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” which begins a weeklong run in an extended, R-rated cut this weekend. When the always-excitable Fallon asked Rudd what the longer cut was like, Rudd paused and said, “It’s just weird.” This is the easiest way to describe the new version of “Anchorman 2,” an oversized comedy so shapeless and bizarre that it borders on being experimental. Gone is any sense of pacing or propriety; in its place is sheer, go-for-broke goofiness. It doesn’t always work, but it’s probably the most fascinating thing being released in theaters this weekend.

With "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' arriving in theaters on a wave of hype, endless advertising, countless personal appearances by Ron Burgundy and much more, Paramount is likely satisfied that the long awaited sequel bested its predecessor at the box office, though it wasn't a knockout punch. "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" notched $95 million worldwide, and the sequel (to date), $169 million. Respectable, but even "Elf" and "Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby" did better at the domestic box office. All this to say: Ron Burgundy is hanging up his jacket.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues
It took nearly 10 years for a sequel to “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” to arrive. And it’s interesting to note, despite all the fan buzz, online news over the years and supposed clamoring for a sequel, “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” proved its cult status by only becoming a marginal box-office hit—the sequel only grossed $39.8 million more than its predecessor and capped out at $169 million worldwide.

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.

Adam McKay Says An Early Version Of 'Anchorman 2' Was Like An Irwin Allen-Esque Disaster Movie

"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" is in theaters now, and for the sake of spoilers, we'll just say this: it gets a little crazy, often leading to the sequel's best moments. But in the nearly decade-long road to bring the movie to the big screen, Adam McKay and Will Ferrell had a lot time to think about how they were going to approach the followup. And while the final result expands the canvas but still keeps Ron Burgundy as the central focus, an earlier concept was much more epic (and somewhat outlandish) in scope.

Anchorman 2
The campaign for "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" rolls on, permeating almost every pop culture sphere possible, and so this morning comes even more from the movie. But in this case, instead of Ron Burgundy shilling for products and commenting on TV shows, we have a couple scenes from the actual movie (and yes, Ron Burgundy shilling for products and commenting on TV shows too).

It's no secret that “Anchorman” represents an almost free-form comedic enterprise for director Adam McKay and Will Ferrell, able to shift and change form and purpose at will. Some are brilliant, like the alternate cut of the original, entitled “Wake Up Ron Burgundy”), some simply lackluster (the recent Dodge Durango tie-ins), but at least McKay and co. know their property. And as the sequel, “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” nears its release next month to hopefully calm our fears once and for all, McKay has recently revealed his next game-changing spin-off.
