‘Anchorman 2’ heads back to theatres with 763 new jokes

New York: With nearly every joke substituted for a new one, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues will return to movie theatres for one week.

Paramount Pictures announced on Friday that an R-rated version of Anchorman 2 with 763 new jokes will play in the US and Britain beginning February 28.

Director Adam McKay improvises heavily while making a film, and found he could swap practically every joke in the film for an alternative. In a statement, McKay recommended die-hard Anchorman fans see the new version, but “if you’re not, stay very far away.”

Starring Will Ferrell as TV news anchor Ron Burgundy, Anchorman 2 has made about $170 million (Dh624.3 million) worldwide since opening in December.
