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?
