Following a less-than-stellar outing with 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star Josh Hutcherson and a holiday break, 'SNL' will return this weekend with its first of three major December installments. This time out, the sketch comedy show will return 'Anchorman' star Paul Rudd to the stage for his third hosting duty and his first alongside UK sensation One Direction.
Adam McKay is releasing a new film in December, and it’s kind of a big deal.
'Anchorman 2,' one of the few films that truly earns the description “highly anticipated,” arrives in theaters December 20, and the filmmaker is in the final days of editing the film down, paring out superfluous bits, rejiggering set pieces, and swapping out jokes to ensure that audiences thoroughly split their sides watching the overdue reunion of Ron Burgundy, Veronica Corningstone, Champ Kind, Brian Fantana and Brick Tamland.
McKay invited us inside the 'Anchorman 2' edit bay, where he showcased a couple of scenes from the film and offered a few details about what audiences might expect to see. In addition to elaborating on possible plans to release multiple versions of the film in the same way they did with the original 'Anchorman,' McKay explained their massively complicated process of arranging and assembling all of the footage they shoot, and offered perspective on the longevity and the legacy of Anchorman, as Burgundy and his news team prepare to return to the screen.
And, he's such a nice guy, he even gave us three new 'Anchorman 2' posters to share with you featuring James Marsden, Meagan Good and a hilarious Kristen Wiig.
Excited as we are to see 'The Hunger Games' star Josh Hutcherson volunteer as tribute this coming weekend, we had to wonder who 'SNL' would recruit for its December run. That answer has finally arrived with a resounding Paul Rudd, John Goodman, and a dual feature with 'SNL' alum Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake, not to mention the musical guests!
We've seen some odd product placement/endorsement deals in our time, but this one just might take the cake. With a slogan that reads, "Give your little Anchorman the support he needs," 'Anchorman 2' and Jockey have teamed up for a series of Ron Burgundy-inspired tighty-whiteys. Except they're not white and come in colors like "Sex Panther Red" and "Beard of Zeus Blue."
Though many of the biggest films of 2015 have chosen their potential release dates, few have filled up their casts, with many just offering casting rumors. The latest to tease its lead is Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man,' with the rumor being that Marvel is high on both Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd.
We knew that 'The Simpsons'' current season would pack a wallop with its existing crop of guest stars, as well as an upcoming installment produced from a decade-old Judd Apatow script, but this is getting ridiculous. Newly added to the season are Apatow himself, along with frequent collaborators Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and even Channing Tatum, while 'Parks and Recreation' star Nick Offerman will appear later on!
Last night in Burbank, CA, audiences caught their first glimpse at the long awaited return of Ron Burgundy as 'Anchorman 2' screened for the very first time. We've got some of the first reactions to the highly-anticipated comedy sequel, as well as a more detailed 'Anchorman 2' review from a lucky ScreenCrush reader who was in attendance.
