Here is the movie trailer to “Anchorman” 2 we’ve all been waiting for

After a couple of straight low-down dirty teases, there’s an official honest-to-goodness movie trailer for Anchorman: The Legend Continues, featuring actual footage from the movie sequel that lands in a movie theater near you this Christmas.

Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Steve Carell, Christina Applegate and more all return, moving from San Diego in the 1970s to New York City in the early 1980s and the birth of 24-hour cable news. From this new trailer, we also can see Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Meagan Good and others join in the fun.

Adam McKay directs, from a screenplay co-written by Ferrell and McKay.

As the trailer notes, an alternate trailer with more footage also debuts in cinemas this Friday with screenings of World War Z, in case you want to do that.

Roll the clip!
