August 31st, get here.

Anchorman is coming to BluRay with 50 more minutes of Sex Panther

Even though fans were super bummed when plans for a proposed "Anchorman 2" were scuttled earlier this year, if you think about it, it would've actually been the third movie. There's "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy," the film we all know and love and quote by heart, and there's "Wake Up Ron Burgundy" a sort-of feature cobbled together from all the outtakes and deleted scenes while shooting the original. And while we may not get another feature, the newest BluRay is giving enough new footage that we're sure somebody out there on the interwebs is gonna try and do something with it.

Paramount is releasing "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy The Unrated “Rich Mahogany” Edition" to BluRay, and instead of just double dipping in a new format, they've added 50 minutes of new outtakes, deleted and extended scenes, raw footage, cast auditions and more. In short, it's 50 more minutes of the cast riffing, fucking up and generally being hilarious and really, it's a pretty decent reason to upgrade (at least we hope).

The BluRay will hit stores on August 31st, and there will be a Best Buy exclusive with trading cards and a book. Full set details after the jump (new features in bold). [Collider]
