In a very unusual move, Paramount Pictures is releasing a new cut of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” that will have a limited one-week only release in the U.S. and United Kingdom beginning Friday.

This remix version will boast 763 entirely new jokes and the rating is bumped from PG-13 to an R.

“When my editor told me we had a whole different version of the movie that was more than two hours long with nearly 800 new jokes, I was shocked. But when Paramount said they were actually going to put it in theaters, I did an 1950’s spit take.  If you’re a hardcore Anchorman fan go see this. If you’re not, stay very far away,” said writer / director Adam McKay in a statement.

Here’s a tease of what to expect.

I kinda feel like if they were that good to begin with, the jokes would have been included in the initial release, but maybe this one will be a pleasant surprise?

  1. Oh you just made my friend’s night. She is the BIGGEST Will Ferrell fan and I just ran out to the desk to tell her about this and she came running into the back to find tickets LOL. If anyone will enjoy it, she will. (I tend to not like the extended cuts of movies, in fact, I think that the extended cut of the original Anchorman and 40 Year Old Virgin are LESS funny because the jokes drag on too long) But to each their own.

Alright, so what do you think?
