Dab on some Sex Panther, and get ready for a trip to Pleasure Town. That's right, world: Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, David Koechner and Paul Rudd are back and more wildly inappropriate than ever in not one but two(!) new teaser trailers for Anchorman 2.
The movie hasn't started filming yet, but director Adam McKay and his lewd band of stars came together shortly after the sequel was announced to shoot the quick teases -- one for international audiences and the other for the U.S. -- to air before The Dictator, which arrived in theaters last week. As you can see in the international trailer below, our favorite Channel 4 San Diego news team hasn't changed much since we last saw them in 2004.
"Get ready to ride the Palamino stallion," says Ferrell in full Ron Burgundy form.
"We're going to be broadcasting from a hot tub full of Scotch," Koechner's Champ Kind intones.
And Rudd's Brian Fontana promises, "It's jean-creaming time." Sounds messy! And awesome, especially with Steve Carell reprising his role as the very weird Brick Tamland -- whose attempt at a unique one-liner never quite works out. He has the same trouble in the U.S. version of the trailer below.
In a recent interview with Empire Online, McKay teased that the sequel will take place eight years after the first film, and that there are many changes in store for Ron Burgundy and company.
"It's right when all the news started changing with the 24-hours news cycle in '78 or '79," McKay explained. "All of a sudden, local news stations diversified and had Latino anchors and African-American anchors, and any time you're talking about diversity and the Action News team, that's always fun to deal with."
He continued, "We know these guys never deal well with change, and the good thing is that there's a big blast of change coming, according to the regular timeline. We're going to be throwing a lot of innovation at them, and they're not going to handle it well."
Anchorman 2 is set to start filming in February 2013 and will be released later that year.
