We've been chanting "December 20" for weeks now, but "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" is coming early this year.
The sequel to the 2004 Will Ferrell comedy is now arriving on December 18 instead of its original December 20 release date.
That puts the anticipated flick up against limited release "Her," starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson, as well as David O. Russell's "American Hustle." But it'll also now have a head start over "Walking with Dinosaurs" and Tom Hanks' "Saving Mr. Banks."
While it's curious why "Anchorman 2" couldn't wait a mere two days to debut in theaters, we'll take it. In case you've forgotten how funny that classy San Diego news team can be, check out the group's harmonizing at the "Anchorman 2" premiere in Sydney, Australia
