“Long time no Z”, Derek Zoolander!
Ben Stiller is back as the clueless yet really, really, really, ridiculously good looking male model in the first official full-length trailer of “Zoolander 2” and we must admit: he’s still killing us with his iconic Blue Steel pose ;)
The original “Zoolander” film is a 2001 cult comedy film that has received strongly positive reviews from critics. As the movie revolves around a male model becoming a pawn in a plot to assassinate the Prime Minister of Malaysia, the film was banned in Malaysian cinemas.
There’s no official plot for the sequel yet, but Stiller has previously briefly described the plot during an interview with Empire Online.
IT’S 10 YEARS LATER AND MOST OF IT IS SET IN EUROPE… IT’S BASICALLY DEREK AND HANSEL… THOUGH THE LAST MOVIE ENDED ON A HAPPY NOTE A LOT OF THINGS HAVE HAPPENED IN THE MEANTIME.
“Their lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them. Will Ferrell is written into the script and he’s expressed interest in doing it. I think Mugatu is an integral part of the Zoolander story, so yes, he features in a big way,” he added.
Co-written by “Iron Man 2″ scribe Justin Theroux, “Zoolander 2” is the sequel of Stiller‘s directorial follow-up to “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty“. Theroux previously worked together with Stiller on the 2008 satirical action comedy film, “Tropic Thunder”.
Owen Wilson is returning to play Hansel McDonald, the rival to Stiller’s character in the film. Earlier in March, they teased the film by making a surprise appearance at the Valentino show during this year’s Paris Fashion Week.
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. Kristen Wiig, Olivia Munn, Christine Taylor, Billy Zane, and Fred Armisen are starring in it as well.
As you can see from the trailer, a number of celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Benedict Cumberbatch making cameo appearances in the film too. Other celebrities that are rumoured to be making cameos include Jonah Hill ,Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell, and Anna Wintour.
