I’m sorry, but if you’re not looking forward to the return of Ron Burgundy…we just can’t be friends.
I know there were some people who just din’t get it…but for me? The original Anchorman film was packed with comedy gold and quotable moments. Who can forget Sex Panther? Not me in a hurry.
I’m full of hope that the follow up film, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, will deliver as much as the first. There’s always the worry that a sequel will be a bit of a disappointment, but I seriously doubt this team would have gone ahead with making the movie if it wasn’t set to be just as funny as the first. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see…
Luckily for Ron Burgundy fans..we don’t have to wait much longer. And if you just don’t want to wait until the film is on general release, then the following information is most definitely for you.
Jameson Irish Whiskey’s Cult Film Club is offering fans the chance to be among the first to see Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, at preview screenings in London, Leeds and Manchester, before it hits mainstream cinemas on December 20th.
The screening experience will open in London before heading on a UK tour visiting Manchester and Leeds. Tickets will be FREE, and guests will be treated to the usual Jameson Cult Film Club experience, immersing the audience into the world of Ron Burgundy.
With the 70’s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Also back for more are Ron’s co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street Brian Fontana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) – all of whom won’t make it easy to stay classy…while taking the nation’s first 24-hour news channel by storm; so expect surprise jazz flute sessions, salon quality hair makeovers and Anchorman themed Jameson cocktails.
So…how do you get your free tickets?
- Like the Jameson Cult Film Club Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/jamesoncultfilmclub) and wait a few days for the ticket ballot to open. Then cross your fingers and hope you’re selected to win tickets to your nearest screening.
- Head to Jameson stocking bars across the country who will be running competitions to win (along with other prizes). Again, “like” the facebook page to find out which bars will be offering what, and when.
Dates of the screenings are as follows:
|Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues||Date to be announced||London|
|Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues||13 December 2013||Prime Studios, Leeds|
|Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues||14 December 2013||Dock 10, Manchester|
I’m crossing my fingers that I get tickets through in the ballot…
Good luck if you decide to enter too (but not too much good luck, in case you steal my tickets…!)
Until then, here’s a little taster:
