By the time Zoolander 2 arrives in cinemas early next year, it will be nearly fifteen years since the original spawned a cult following. The long wait hasn’t dulled anticipation for the return of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson’s male models, and the follow-up will try to accomplish the impossible – a comedy sequel that’s better than the original.
Judging by the footage in the ridiculously good-looking first full trailer that’s dropped online today, we have nothing to worry about.
This trailer is bursting with comedic highlights; there’s the death of Justin Bieber (complete with Blue Steel pose), the return of Will Ferrell’s Mugatu and a slew of cameos from the likes of Miley Cyrus, Usher, Demi Lovato and more. The biggest laugh comes from Benedict Cumberbatch, who comes across both funny and a little bit scary as an androgynous model… with no eyebrows. All in all, this is the funniest trailer we’ve seen in a long time. Roll on February!
Starring Stiller (who will also direct), Wilson, Penélope Cruz, Christine Taylor, Will Ferrell, and Billy Zane, Zoolander 2 – or 2oolander – will strike a pose when it opens in UK and US cinemas on February 12 2016.
