While no footage from the sequel of the 2001 cult comedy classic were shown, it’s clear that the movie is only getting funnier with Stiller returning as the clueless yet really really, really, ridiculously good looking male model, Derek Zoolander.
By using an 80s speech synthesizer, the trailer explained how the universe came about:
In the beginning, there was nothing. An infinite void. Then, in an instant, everything on command came into being. The Big Bang, the birth of time itself, chaos, and beauty. That beauty created infinite galaxies. Galaxies that would one day create the unimaginable: life. But even more incredible, the human brain.
The clip then took a deep-dive into a human brain, featuring a hilarious collage of the equation “3+4=34″, “e=mc(hammer)”, a dictionary definition for the term “eugoogly”, mermen, and etc. The voiceover continued to talk about the universe and led us to one question “that has puzzled mankind since the beginning of time”:
If God exists, why did he make ugly people?
Stiller then turned to the camera with his iconic “Blue Steel” facial expression, but remained clueless and questioned the spellings of the movie title.
Watch it below:
Stiller’s real-life wife, Christine Taylor will play Zoolander’s wife Matilda while Cyrus Arnold will play their son. “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” star Penelope Cruz has signed on to star in an unspecified role while Will Ferrell will return to reprise his role as fashion mogul Mugatu. Justin Bieber is expected to make a cameo appearance alongside Stiller and rumour has it that various other celebrities including Jonah Hill, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell, and Anna Wintour will be making cameo appearances too.
Paramount Pictures confirmed that the sequel will hit the cinemas on 12th February 2016.
