Anchorman 2 is a funny movie. The people involved are funny people. But they've also got a dramatic side just waiting to burst out.
And they get that chance in this latest trailer for a third cut of the film. Entitled the 'No Joke' Cut, this version of the film reveals the dark drama at the heart of Ron's long journey into night.
Check out director Adam McKay's statement and the trailer below:
"People know that Will and I do many joke options for our movies, but I think what gets lost is the fact that underneath the laughs there’s a very powerful drama at work,” writer/director Adam McKay explained in a press release. “Movies like ‘Sophie’s Choice,’ ‘Ordinary People,’ and ‘Breaking the Waves’ are the movies that inspire Will and me. I’m just glad, with the no-joke cut, audiences can finally appreciate the rawness and drama of ‘Anchorman 2."
That might be an April Fool's joke. Maybe.
