Unless you’re a British racing fan, chances are you might not know of the Goodwood Revival. Held each September, the event takes place at a circuit near Chichester that was originally operative from ’48 to ’66, and features races in which drivers compete against one another in cars from that time span. It’s old-timey stuff, but pretty nifty, especially if you’re into vintage cars.

Ron Burgundy doesn’t know much about the Goodwood Revival, but then he’s Ron Burgundy. I wouldn’t expect him to know much about, well, anything. That doesn’t stop him reporting on it, complete with some unecessary and mildly funny extra commentary. He’s just like the internet! Watch Burgundy’s report on the Goodwood Revival below.

Anchorman 2 GNN

“Free screening of Anchorman 2 this Tuesday!” As a film fan, hearing someone scream that outside a movie theater is like being invited to the ultimate event. As a film journalist, it’s the opposite, because you can’t attend. (Test screenings are typically closed to press.) Last week, I was in Burbank, CA attending a press screening of the awesome horror film You’re Next when I heard someone say those beautiful words. I didn’t follow up because I’d be stopped at the door. But lots of other people went to the show, and today we have our first reactions to Adam McKay‘s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

Those reactions are decidedly mixed but, with a film from this team, that’s nothing to be worried about just yet. Test screenings are literally used as part of the filmmaking process. McKay and producer Judd Apatow use audience reactions to early versions of the film to fine tune jokes, insert alternate line readings and change the pacing of the film. So things that didn’t work in Burbank, CA could very well be changed. Read some reactions below. Read More »

You probably already know this, but Ron Burgundy is kind of a big deal. If he wasn’t, would he be able to pull off a long leather overcoat with puffy fur collar?

San Diego’s most famous news anchor returns December 20 with Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. The full cast of the 2004 original are back as Ron (Will Ferrell), Brick (Steve Carell), Champ (David Koechner) and Brian (Paul Rudd) are forced into the world of 24-hour news during the 1980s.

Check out two new photos from the film below. Read More »
