We've gotten glimpses of the fabulous four before, but the first full-length trailer for "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" has dropped, and it's a doozy.
Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), Champ Kind (David Koechner), and Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) are back, but the '80s haven't been kind to them. Out of work, haggard, and bereft of the one thing that gives his life meaning, Ron is offered a gig at a global news network, along with his cohorts -- Brick, the non-sequitur spouting weirdo, Brian the horndog, and Champ the boozehound.
New York City in the '80s is a brave new world for the guys, but as Journey sings so poignantly, they won't stop believin'. Things get interesting with the introduction of a possible love interest, played by Meagan Good, which gives Ron the opportunity to be all sorts of awkwardly racist at dinner -- and what about Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), who is clearly going to give Ron the smackdown for his wandering eye?
Then there's Kristen Wiig's as-yet-unnamed character, a woman whose meek weirdness matches Brick's word for word. Who else would be charmed by a come-on like "I like the parts of your face that are covered by skin"?
We also meet the handsome young rival, played by James Marsden with Blue Steel realness. No sign of Harrison Ford, but perhaps he'll appear as a grizzled news anchor exec -- we can only hope!
Already a pretty big deal, "Anchorman 2" hits theaters December 20.
