Man, do people not look stuff up (or even read previous comments) before posting questions on here? Yes, this came out a few years ago as a Best Buy exclusive in the United States (i.e. it was not available in Canadian Best Buy stores). So now it's being released for everybody at all retailers. The existing Anchorman blu ray contains only the unrated version of the movie, this contains the original theatrical cut as well as Wake Up Ron Burgundy so for many people those will be newly available to them.
Seems you need to do your research a little more. The existing Blu-ray does not only contain the unrated version, it contains both. This new release is 100% identical and completely pointless because the existing Blu-ray is region free.
But did it have "Wake Up" also? This is the first I've heard of it being on blu, but maybe it just didn't get mentioned previously. I've been curious about this alternate movie since that stupidly expensive DVD set back in 2005 or 2006. I'll probably get this when it goes $9.99 or less.
