This time there will be 763 new jokes in this all new cut of Anchorman 2! Has this ever been done before? How different can it be? Will the whole story/ plot even be the same? It’s an intriguing idea and one that may require viewing. Check out the details below from Paramount!

Press Release: 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.

Really?  I'll probably go see it just out of sheer curiosity, but this is obviously a huge money grab.  I honestly wasn't overly impressed with it to begin with.

I never watched the sequel so maybe this will be a reason to do so :)

I'm curious, but the sequel itself left such a bad taste in my mouth, I'm not sure about this.
