NEWS TEAM… REASSEMBLE!!!! The boys are back. Time has jumped forward and now Ron, Brian, Champ and Brick are going to rule the burgeoning 24 hour cable news world of the 1980’s. With great suits and perfect hair they plan on making a comeback after dropping out of the spotlight.
Words can’t describe how much I hurt from laughing when I saw the original the first time in the theater. A group of friends and I saw it opening weekend and we all lost it. Granted a majority of us worked in TV news at the time, which helped. We were picturing our local news team on screen as the cast and also commenting on how we were still using the same equipment they were using in the 1970’s to put on our newscast on the air in the mid ‘00’s. I have lost count of the number of times I have seen this movie since it came out. Heck I own it on Blu-Ray.
When I heard they were planning on doing a sequel, then got confirmation they were doing, and even got a teaser trailer for it, I got really excited…. REALLY excited. I want to know what my good friends from the Channel 4 news team are up to. I want to see this. I will see this. I just hate that I have to wait till the end of December to do so.
