Underneath all the laughs and tomfoolery, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues was a seriously wicked satire of the 24-hour news industry, political correctness in the age of feminism and vampires, the law of diminishing returns of celebrity cameos, and the modern-day global ramifications of the Boer Wars. (Open your eyes, people!)

So it’s only right that Paramount is finally releasing a No Joke Cut of the film, which lays out all the drama for serious cinephiles and NPR members.

“People know that Will [Ferrell] and I do many joke options for our movies, but I think what gets lost is the fact that underneath the laughs there’s a very powerful drama at work,” said writer/ director Adam McKay. “Movies like Sophie’s Choice, Ordinary People, and Breaking the Waves are the movies that inspire Will and me.

The new version was announced today, the day before April 2. (Which can’t be a coincidence. UPDATE: It was not a coincidence.) Click below for the no-joke trailer: READ FULL STORY
