The first trailer for Zoolander 2 has premiered and Ben Stiller is back as title character and director. Finally our first glimpse of the long-anticipated comedy sequel in the official trailer, after the typical and not surprising leak of an unauthorized version. It’s generating quite a buzz in social media to say the very least!
Yes, nothing like a new teaser for a movie that’s months away to create excitement and make one count the days till release date! Such is the case for ‘Zoolander 2.’ Yes, start the countdown as Ben Stiller returns in the movie he stars in, directs and has co-written with Justin Theroux.
First of all, a collective cheer that there is such a sequel and that it didn’t take three decades to arrive on the big screen. Comparatively speaking, 2001 was, after all just a decade and a half ago. At least we’re not in some far future world where maybe we are watching movies that are implanted in our brains.
Yes, not unlike the circumstances that our title character faces, the male model Derek Zoolander who, let’s say, will never be confused with a Rhodes scholar.
The new trailer sends us careening us right in the midst of the action as we see cosmic imagery, reminiscent of ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ and a ponderous synthesized voiceover describing the origins of the universe, and finally as we are zipping through a human brain and grooving along with the CGI imagery we meed our title character in a most amusing way as he poses the question, “If God exists, then why did He make ugly people?”
Indeed! Looks like we’re in for quite the thrill ride after a decade and a half of waiting.
Returning costars in the movie include Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor, and Will Ferrell. And there will be numerous cameos to look forward to from the likes of Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen, and Ariana Grande among others.
The movie hits theaters on February 16, 2016. But for now watch the first official ‘Zoolander 2′ teaser trailer video below!
