Two full trailers for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues have emerged online. One is domestic, the other international, and both feature decidedly different footage. It’s been nine years since the first Anchorman hit screens and became a cultural phenomenon, making this one of the most anticipated comedy sequels in film history. Can it live up to the hype?
