How do you feel about shelling out $33 to see "Anchorman 2"?

If that seems like kind of a big deal, consider what Paramount Pictures and AMC theaters are offering. First, you'll get to see the movie Dec. 16, two days ahead of its official theatrical debut. You'll also get a poster and a $5 voucher for the concession stand.

Most intriguing, the so-called SuperTicket comes with two home-video freebies: a digital copy of the movie (when it becomes available) and an instant digital copy of "Anchorman: Wake Up Ron Burgundy -- The Lost Movie" (an alternative version of the first film).

It's a strategy that Paramount has used previously, with Regal theaters, for "World War Z," which came with the option of a bonus-laden $50.

The "Anchorman 2" SuperTicket is available through Fandango or through participating AMC box offices.  There is one catch: At the moment, the only local theater offering the SuperTicket is the Lincoln Square 13 in Manhattan.
