As one who has never fully seen Zoolander, I can’t even begin to guess why the movie has become such a major cult classic. I suppose the style of comedy that it displayed has just never really appealed to me, but that isn’t going to stop me from eventually checking it out, which will probably be just days before the sequel comes out.
Hey speaking of the sequel; the film that’s been talked about for what seems like decades, is finally headed our way. Although it was announced last year with production and all that good stuff, it was still hard to believe because of the cry wolf game that’s been played with it through the years. But for all those who’ve been begging for a sequel ever since the original, your wish is finally granted. There was that ridiculously stupid teaser from a few months back, but here is the real deal. Derek, Hansel, Mugatu, and a hell of a lot more, check out the first trailer Zealander 2 below:
Surprisingly, I enjoyed the trailer. It wasn’t like flat-out hilarious or something I can watch over and over again, but it was actually entertaining. Again, I haven’t seen the original so I don’t really know what to expect from it, but the comedy and story and everything else seems to fit exactly what a Zoolander movie should be. It’s going to be outrageous and just crazy ridiculous, but there’s a high chance it can be a fun time and end up just as entertaining as the original.
Here’s a synopsis and first set of posters for the movie:
Set 10 years later and mostly set in Europe, Derek and Hansel lives have changed and they’re not relevant anymore in the fashion world. An opposing company attempts to take them out from the business.
Zoolander 2 hits the runway on February 12th, 2016. Directed by and starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penélope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, Benedict Cumberbatch, Olivia Munn, Christine Taylor, and Will Ferrell.
