‘Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy’ Now Available On 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray



Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy

Wanna feel old? Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy was released in theaters on July 9, 2004. 20 years ago! I still remember seeing it in the theater on opening night, and how much my cheeks hurt afterwards from laughing so much. Right there, I knew this movie was going to be a classic that would be quoted for years to come. “You stay classy, San Diego.”

Set in the 1970s, Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy tells the hard-hitting ridiculously funny story of a testosterone-filled newsroom threatened by the arrival of an ambitious female anchor. It was a time before cable when the local anchorman reigned supreme, and in the hard-hitting world of local TV news, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and his loyal Channel 3 News Team (Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner) are San Diego’s #1 rated news source.

All is well in their male-dominated world of news until beautiful, rising-star reporter Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) turns it all upside down. Sparks don’t just fly, they ignite an all-out war between the two perfectly coiffed anchorpersons. In a job where it pays to keep a straight face, Anchorman is the comedy that makes it almost impossible to stop laughing.
