Trailer Showdown: 'X-Men' vs. 'Catching Fire' vs. 'Wolf of Wall Street'
This week's other contenders include 'Labor Day,' 'The LEGO Movie,' and more
2. 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues'
Release date: December 25, 2013
Who: Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate and Kristen Wiig. Directed by Adam McKay.
Trailer soundtrack: Jimmy Buffet's "If You Like Pina Coladas," Journey's "Don't Stop Believing," Van Halen's "Dance the Night Away."
The lowdown: The sequel to 2004's gritty drama about a hardened journalist struggling to maintain his integrity in changing times.
The verdict: It's been entirely too long -- almost ten years -- but the wait appears to have been worth it, as this hilarious trailer illustrates. It begins with a false funeral and ends with an extended green screen gag, with bowling balls, casual racism, and plenty of quotable Ron Burgundy-isms inbetween. It also doesn't spoil all those big-name cameos that are apparently in the film. My biggest gripe is that "Don't Stop Believing" really needs to be retired from movies and TV for a while.
