Paramount Pictures has released the first full trailer for Zoolander 2 — also known as 2oolander — and it features the return of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson’s ridiculously handsome male models, Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald. It also features a few more familiar faces, as well as no shortage of celebrity cameos.
Set 10 years after the events of 2001’s Zoolander, the sequel finds Derek and Hansel struggling to find their place in a world filled with fresh new faces and an industry that has all but forgotten its once-great icons of fashion. Recruited by Interpol to help with an investigation, the pair suddenly find themselves thrust back into the spotlight — and facing an old enemy who’s out for revenge.
“Although the last movie ended on a happy note, a lot of things have happened in the meantime,” said Stiller of the film in an interview earlier this year. “Their lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them.”
Stiller reprises his role both in front of the camera and behind it for Zoolander 2, directing and co-writing the sequel as well as portraying the titular male model whose naivety is only matched by his stellar good looks. Tropic Thunder screenwriter Justin Theroux co-wrote the script with Stiller.
Along with Stiller and Wilson, the film also stars Penélope Cruz, Christine Taylor, Kristen Wiig, Cyrus Arnold, and Will Ferell (reprising his role as the villainous designer Jacobim Mugatu). Also appearing in the film are Billy Zane, Fred Armisen, Justin Bieber, Kyle Mooney, Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, and other notable celebrities.
Zoolander 2 is scheduled to hit theaters February 12, 2016.
