Paramount Will Release ‘Anchorman 2′ Two Days Early

The legend of Ron Burgundy will resume a little bit earlier than expected.

As a holiday gift for fans of San Diego’s drunkest and loudest newscaster, Paramount Pictures has opted to release Anchorman: The Legend Continues into theaters on Dec. 18, two days earlier than its original date.

The long-awaited Anchorman sequels sees the return of the News Team — Will Ferrell as Burgundy, Steve Carell as Brick Tamland, Paul Rudd as Brian Fantana and David Koechner as Champ Kind — as they struggle to make their mark on a new news era. Christina Applegate also returns as Veronica Corningstone-Burgundy, while Kristen Wiig joins the cast as a new love interest for dimwitted Brick.

And now, to celebrate the early release date, here’s the Anchorman cast singing “Afternoon Delight” live in Sydney, Australia:
