He was once the world's most famous male model. Even his looks were household names. Le Tigre. Magnum. And of course, Blue Steel. But that was a long, long, long time ago. Now, Derek Zoolander is back, and the world of male modeling has changed. Paramount Pictures has released the first full trailer for Zoolander 2, and it brings Derek out of retirement, along with a whole slew of celebrity cameos. Things kick of with the 'androgynous' Benedict Cumberbatch being asked if he has a hot dog or a bun. And it gets crazier from their.
Penélope Cruz stars as Montana Grosso. She recruits Derek (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) to help stop a killer who is targeting the most beautiful people in the world. And this assassin is starting with Justin Bieber. All of the targets are dying with Derek's signature look. Blue Steel. And it is seen on the faces of such dead celebrities as Usher Raymond, Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus.
Derek and Hansel are tasked with infiltrating the world of high fashion. It's a world they used to know. But not any more. The pair don't see this as their opportunity to save the beautiful people in the world. They see it as their chance to get back amongst the ranks, since a lot of room is being made, and some replacements are desperately needed. But now, the hunters are becoming the hunted in a insane sequel that takes the Zoolander legacy to a whole new crazy level.
It's been more than three long months since the first trailer for Paramount's highly-anticipated comedy sequel Zoolander 2 arrived, and fans have been deprived of any new material featuring supermodel Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and his rival Hansel (Owen Wilson) ever since. With the February 12, 2016 release date rapidly approaching, IGN and Fashionista debuted two new posters last week, which brought these ficons back together and even hint at a new Chanel-inspired title, Zoolander No. 2. Both posters feature the appropriate tagline "Long Time No Z."
This new trailer introduced Kristen Wiig as the new villain. But she soon teams up with the only criminal mastermind who could be behind the entire assassination plot. Yes, Will Ferrell returns as Mugatu and he's gotten super buff. Along with his return alongside Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, Zoolander 2 is bringing back Christine Taylor as Matilda Jeffries, who married Derek Zoolander at the end of the 2001 cult comedy hit. Cyrus Arnold has signed on to play Derek and Matilda's son, Derek Jr., with Penélope Cruz, Fred Armisen, Kyle Mooney,Justin Bieber, Olivia Munn and Billy Zane all coming aboard for the ride. Billy Zane is even playing himself, as he did in the original Zoolander.
Ben Stiller also directs the sequel from a script by Justin Theroux, who wrote the script for 2008's Tropic Thunder, which Ben Stiller also starred in and directed. Production took place earlier this year at Rome's famous Cinecittà Studios, with production spanning 12 weeks. Zoolander 2 will be going up against 20th Century Fox's superhero movie Deadpool and the Warner Bros. comedy How to Be Single on February 12, 2016. Take a look at the first footage from Zoolander 2 as the world's greatest male model returns!
