‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ On Blu-ray April Fools Day

Anchorman 2 Blu TNHow appropriate they pick April Fools Day for the Blu-ray release date of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, huh?  I think so!  And I’m also very stoked and excited about this news as try as I might I not only missed the press screening of this comedy last year, but I also misplaced the free movie cash I had for it and ultimately never was able to catch this one theatrically.  So I’m looking forward to my first time being on the Blu format!  And now…without further ado…Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues will be released on Digital HD on March 11th and on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and VOD on April 1st.  The three-disc Blu-ray Combo Pack includes three versions of the film, including theSuper-Sized R Rated Version with 763 new jokes, as well as over four hours of bonus features.  Yea!  Check out the full press release from Paramount below!
