Nearly a decade after the first Zoolander (2001), Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson – the ‘Blue Steel’ – are back with Zoolander 2. The duo announced the news of the sequel in style while crashing the Paris Fashion Week in May in Valentino creations!
Eager fans can watch the first official trailer of the film online showing Zoolander himself. The guy hasn’t changed one bit! The trailer highlights a discussion between the Zoolander and the narrator about The Big Bang Theory and evolution where Zoolander asks, “If God exists, then why did he make ugly people?” The voice which sounds like the famous Stephen Hawking is actually the same voice used in his DECtalk machine and it is named Dennis.
The movie is said to revolve around Zoolander’s difficulty in adjusting to a selfie-obsessed world that sees him as ancient. The Facebook page of the sequel describes it as ‘3% body fat and 1% brain activity!’ – an appropriate description for a fun movie that gives us a glimpse into the brain of the cute but dumb Derek Zoolander.
A Paramount Pictures release, directed by Ben Stiller who is also the lead character in the movie, the cast includes, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, Christine Taylor, Olivia Munn, Kristen Wiig and cameo appearances by Hollywood and fashion world celebs including Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian and Willie Nelson.
The movie is scheduled to hit the silver screens across the nation by February 2016.
