Paramount Pictures released the trailer to Zoolander 2 today, in response to the online leak yesterday. About a minute and a half, the trailer ponders the mysteries of the universe as narrated by someone who sounds suspiciously like Stephen Hawking, going from the Big Bang to the evolution of the human brain, which looks like it includes hair dryers and mermen (from the first film).
Check out the teaser trailer below.
Starring Ben Stiller as Derek Zoolander, who also directed and cowrote the script with Justin Theroux (The Leftovers), the movie stars Olivia Munn, Kristen Wiig, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell (as Mugatu), Fred Armisen, Owen Wilson (reprising his Hansel role), and Christine Taylor. Other rumored cameos are Mr. and Mrs Kanye West, Justin Bieber, and Billy Zane as himself once again.
There is no official synopsis yet, but it is supposed to be set 10 years after the 2001 film, with Derek and Hansel needing to make a comeback.
The teaser does bring back the Zoolander we know and love, in all his self-absorbed and dimwitted narcissistic glory, confused about the original clever title choices, so much so, they have to stick with Zoolander 2.
Derek Zoolander is back in Zoolander 2. Coming to theaters 2016.
Original Zoolander – Trailer
Clear the runway for Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller), VH1’s three-time male model of the year. His face falls when hippie-chic Hansel (Owen Wilson) scooters in to steal this year’s award. The evil fashion guru Mugatu (Will Ferrell) seizes the opportunity to turn Derek into a killing machine. It’s a well-designed conspiracy and only with the help of Hansel and a few well-chosen accessories like Matilda (Christine Taylor) can Derek make the world safe for male models everywhere.
