"Anchorman 2" has its first official teaser. Two of them, actually.
The trailer premiered in front of "The Dictator" in theaters this weekend (though you might not have seen it since Sacha Baron Cohen's film stumbled at the box office), but there are two different cuts -- one for U.S. audiences, and one for international viewers.
The difference is in the jokes. For instance, in the U.S. clip above, Paul Rudd's Brian Fantana won't tell you about how it's "jean-creaming time."
Still, the all-American clip does feature some wonderful bon mots, like this one from Ron Burgundy himself: "Hey America, did you miss my hot breath in your ear?"
Or this, from Champ Kind (David Koechner): "There's going to be submachine guns and boobies. Whammy."
"Oh, we shot that in April," Koechner told HuffPost Entertainment last week. "We shot that about a week after they announced [the film]."
"Anchorman 2" had a famously difficult time getting back in front of cameras. The 2004 film was a moderate hit for Paramount and DreamWorks, but director Adam McKay was never able to get a workable budget for the sequel.
"[T]heir numbers machine purely looked at the box office," McKay told THR back in April. "It didn’t project off of DVD sales and TV and cultural influence. It stopped at the box office."
Shooting on the sequel is expected to start in February for a 2013 release.
"You know, it seems a little unreal," Koechner told HuffPost. "Almost like when we were shooting [the first one], it didn't seem real."
