After nearly fifteen years, the sartorially superior coupling, Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) are back. The Zoolander 2 Trailer has officially dropped with all the blue steel you can muster.
Gone are the days when the male models were considered the ‘IT’ men in fashion. But like an ageing supermodel clinging on to her younger self, they decide to clamber their way back into their desired spotlight. And of course, kill bad guys and save the day. I haven’t been that excited about Lenny Kravitz since his televised wardrobe malfunction or as Cinna in the Hunger Games.
Who is this bad guy I speak of?! Why, it’s Mugatu (Will Ferrell),who has has been spending his formidable years in prison plotting his revenge on our well dressed pairing. *Cue evil laughter*
You can’t go wrong with a gender fluid appearance in any form of media at the moment (just see the potential Oscar winner, The Danish Girl Official Trailer starring Eddie Redmayne). And it appears from the trailer, that we can expect Benedict Cumberbatch, looking remarkably androgynous.
As the character of Derek Zoolander is as well known for his looks as his unrivalled stupidity, in order to save the day he requires assistance. In this case, Penelope Cruz stars as Detective Montana Grosso to help the duo with their mission. Another new character is one Alexanya Atoz, played by Bridesmaids‘ Kristen Wiig, who with botox injected lips, big hair and all,is set to set a villainous character alongside the aforementioned Mugatu.
It’s also clear from the trailer that we can expect a number of cameos from the likes of Justin Beiber, Lewis Hamilton, Usher, Olivia Munn and Demi Lovato. Also set to feature in the film are Susan Surandon, Ariana Grande and Willie Nelson. Rumours surrounding the addition of Katy Perry and Kimye [Kanye West and Kim Kardashian] are also strong possibilities.
Zoolander 2 will be in cinemas for 12th February 2016, so show some love at the box office.
