‘Anchorman 2’ set for Dec. 20, 2013

First film was released in summer 2004

Feliz Navidad, bitches!

Paramount has dated “Anchorman 2” for a Dec. 20, 2013, wide release, giving the film a solid lead-up to the Christmas holiday.

The release date is an interesting departure for the franchise — and adult comedies, in general — after the first pic bowed during the heat of summer in 2004. Domestic cume on the original was $85.3 million.

Anchorman 2” joins four other wide releases, Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” Fox’s “Walking With Dinosaurs,” Sony’s “Monuments Men” and “Last Vegas,” from CBS Films.

As a counterprogramming move, the laffer sequel should appeal mostly to adult men.
