"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues: Super Sized R Rated Version" Hitting Theaters

Related: Anchorman 2

Paramount Pictures and Gary Sanchez Productions today announced an unprecedented theatrical release of an all new cut of the hit film "ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES," starring Will Ferrell, in theaters in the U.S. and U.K. beginning February 28th for one-week only.

The new version of the film, titled "ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES: SUPER SIZED R RATED VERSION," will feature 763 entirely new jokes from legendary anchorman Ron Burgundy and America's favorite 24-hour global news team. The film is now rated 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.

"ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES," a sequel to 2004's cult film "ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY," was released in theaters on December 18, 2013 and has earned more than $170 million at the worldwide box office to date.

With the 70's behind him, San Diego's top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk in "ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES," which opened in theaters everywhere December 18. Also back for more are Ron's co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street reporter Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) - All of whom won't make it easy to stay classy... while taking New York and the nation's first 24-hour news channel by storm. Produced by Judd Apatow, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. Written by Will Ferrell & Adam McKay. Directed by Adam McKay.
