By the beard of Zeus, it seems that nothing is able to stop Ron Burgundy and his Action Five news team. Not only has it been announced that a second “R-Rated” version of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is to be distributed in theaters at the end of the month; but yesterday Paramount announced that the Blu-ray version slated to hit shelves in early April will include a third version of the film.
The two-disc Blu-ray is set not to only include both a rated and unrated cut of theatrical film, but also including the super-sized R rated version. Along with the three cuts of the film there are hours special features said to be included in the release, Features such as a gag real, audio commentary, audition tapes, and something that is only listed as Anchorman 2 the musical that almost was. I have to admit for me the thought of an “all-musical version” of the film is quite enticing.
The Blu-ray version of the film is hitting the shelves on April 1st and the super-sized R rated version will be coming to a theater near you on February 28th.
