Derek and Hansel are modelling again when an opposing company attempts to take them out from the business.
In the past few years, February has gone from a month that rarely features any box office hits, to a viable frame to open big blockbusters. Recent hits like The Lego Movie, Fifty Shades of Grey and Kingsman: The Secret Service have proved that fans will brave the elements and head to the theaters in droves for the right movie, and this year is no different, with three new releases arriving this weekend, all of which are slated to take in more than $20 million, according to the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com. The big runaway winner, though, is expected to be the superhero adaptation Deadpool, which could come close to making box office history, although Zoolander 2 and How to Be Single are expected to perform well also.
Last month, analysts started tracking this blockbuster-to-be, predicting that its opening weekend could be anywhere between $55 million and $60 million. The movie has picked up a lot of buzz since then, especially with a string of positive reviews, with the movie now projected to take in a whopping $81 million this weekend. If it does hit that mark, it will become the third-highest movie ever to open in February, following The Passion of the Christ ($83.8 million) and last year's Fifty Shades of Grey ($85.1 million). The film is currently standing at a superb 84% "Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes, and it's expected to debut in more than 3,400 theaters this weekend.Read More
Curb Your Enthusiasm star/creator Larry David hosted last night's episode of Saturday Night Live, but the show was stolen during the regular sketch Weekend Update, with two surprise guests stopping by. Zoolander 2 stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made an unannounced appearance as their beloved characters Derek Zoolander and Hansel. While they were supposed to discuss Fashion Week in New York City, they instead discussed the fashion style of this year's Presidential candidates, where they shared their thoughts on Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and, of course, Donald Trump.
Their appearance came just days after the final trailer was released, which revealed that the obscure character Evil DJ (Justin Theroux) from the original Zoolander will return. In the original Zoolander, Justin Theroux had a small part as Evil DJ, who challenged both Derek Zoolander and Hansel to a break-dance showdown, set to the original "Relax." While he wasn't very well-known at the time, Justin Theroux went on to become both an accomplished actor and writer, starring in the hit HBO series The Leftovers and writing the scripts for Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder, Iron Man 2 and Rock of Ages. He also co-wrote the script for Zoolander 2 with Ben Stiller, Nick Stoller and John Hamburg.Read More
It's official! Zoolander 2 is going down in the Guinness Book of World Records. It didn't break any box office records. But star Ben Stiller managed to show the world what Blue Steel looks like hanging from 28 feet in the air. Yes, that's right! The comedian managed to set the world record for the Longest Selfie stick last night at the premiere of his long-anticipated sequel.
Zoolander 2 has pulled some amazing stunts in the months leading up to it's worldwide debut. Just last week, stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson went in character as Derek Zoolander and Hansel to live model in the window of the Valentino Store.

Ever since production started on Zoolander 2 last year, we knew that star/writer/director Ben Stiller was bringing back several of his original Zoolander co-stars. Owen Wilson is back as Hansel, alongside Will Ferrell's Mugatu and Christine Taylor's Matilda Jeffries, but there's one obscure character we didn't know was returning, until now. Paramount Pictures has released a final trailer for this comedy sequel, which reveals that Justin Theroux is back as the Evil DJ, who presents a new remix of the 1980s Frankie Goes to Hollywood classic "Relax." And he is joined by music heavy hitters A$AP Rocky and Skrillex.
