Someone is out to kill the world’s most beautiful people and it is up to male models Derek Zoolander and Hansel to stop them.
That’s the set-up we get for Ben Stiller’s Zoolander 2, the sequel to his 2001 comedy. This is Stiller not in his bumbling, romantic comedy lead mode but in his much sillier, broad and goofy character mode. And now we get our first full look at the film courtesy of the trailer released by Paramount Pictures today.
The trailer gives some nice face time to all the film’s major players – Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell and Kristin Wiig. We also get to see a nice, self-deprecating appearance from Justin Bieber. And then there’s Benedict Cumberbatch. It should be interesting to see the reaction to his role, which is clearly far away from anything he has previously done before.
Zoolander 2 arrives in theaters February 12, 2016.
