It’s not often I’m blindsided by a home video release, but that’s what just happened as I got a press release informing me of a new Blu-ray of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy that includes 50 minutes of new outtakes and extra features!  The edition is called Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy The Unrated “Rich Mahogany” Edition and it’s going to be sold as an exclusive at Best Buy starting August 31st!  With Anchorman being one of the best comedies of the last decade, this is a must own Blu-ray.  According to the press release, the new extras include:

  • Deleted & Extended Scenes
  • Raw Footage “Good Takes”
  • “Afternoon Delight” Recording Session
  • AMC Loews Happy Birthday
  • Cast Auditions
  • Table Read
  • Trailers (HD)

Also included will be The Many Months Of Burgundy Book, Collectible Trading Cards, and more.  While all too often movie studios will force fans to double dip while offering close to nothing new, this is one of those times I’m more than willing to spend my money.  If you’re a fan of director Adam McKay’s Anchorman, hit the jump for cover art and full details on the new Blu-ray.

Here’s the full press release and the cover art.  And here’s a link to the BestBuy website in case you want to buy it. Finally, before posting the story I did a bit of research and discovered the Blu-ray was announced over a month ago, but I hadn’t heard of it until tonight. I figure at least a few of you haven’t either.
