Waiting for Zoolander 2 has been almost as hard as losing friends in a freak gasoline fight accident. Fortunately, fans got something as exciting as an orange mocha frappuccino on Tuesday: two new posters for the upcoming comedy.
Needless to say, the posters are really, really, ridiculously good looking. Each features protagonist Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and his trademark look, Blue Steel; the solo poster is modeled after fragrance ads, while the model shares space in the second with his rival-turned-friend Hansel (Owen Wilson). The joint poster is especially fantastic, as the two are shown taking selfies, which is absolutely fitting.
Paramount tweeted the new posters, ramping up fan excitement for the long-awaited film’s February debut.

Zoolander 2 (or Zoolander No. 2 as it appears it may be stylized, based on the posters), has been much-anticipated by fans. Stiller has been promising a follow-up since the first movie came out in 2001, and it’s finally almost here. The sequel will again star Derek and Hansel as they face more bizarre fashion industry-related problems (and hopefully participate in more walk-offs and break dance fights). Stiller has revealed that the film is largely set in Europe.
The cast will also feature Will Ferrell as Jacobim Mugatu, the villain of Zoolander, not to mention inventor of the piano key necktie. Christine Taylor (Matilda) and Billy Zane will also be back, with a handful of big names joining. Penélope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, Cyrus Arnold, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, and more will all appear in the movie.
Stiller, the director and co-writer of the original film, returned in those roles for the sequel, but this time he shared writing duties with Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder).
Zoolander 2 is currently schedule to hit theaters on February 12, 2016.
