With the 70's behind him, San Diego's top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy, is now married to Veronica Corningstone and they have a six-year-old son named Walter. They co-anchor at a prestigious news network in New York City until one day Veronica gets promoted to become the first female nightly news anchor in television history and Ron gets fired. Jealous of Veronica’s success, Ron leaves his family and heads back to San Diego. Gathering his old news crew, weather man Brick Tamland, intrepid reporter Brian Fantana and sports guy Champ Kind, they make a comeback taking the nation’s first 24-hour news channel by storm. Initially assigned to the unpopular late night timeslot, they quickly gain fame and fortune -- beating their rival Jack Lime -- when they devise a sensationalist newscast giving people what they want to hear instead of what they need to hear. However soon everything comes to a head and the biggest, baddest all-star celebrity brawl erupts!

Fans of Anchorman 2 will be excited to know that the Blu-ray Combo Pack will feature three versions of the film -- the original theatrical version, the unrated version and in a home entertainment first, the Super-Sized R-Rated version with 763 new jokes! This must-own three-disc set also features over four hours of bonus content including commentary by Adam McKay, Judd Apatow, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner, gag reels, more than 90 minutes of deleted, extended and alternate scenes, five behind-the-scenes featurettes, table reads, cast auditions and much, much more. The DVD will include the feature film with no extras.
