The Zoolander 2 Trailer is here and is hilarious!
Normally, I don’t typically get excited for sequels especially comedy sequels since they never capture the laughts of the original but there is no denying that Zoolander 2 looks hilarious.
Zoolander was one of those rare comedies that aged well. It is still to this day a film that a lot of people quote especially the whole “The Derek Zoolander School for Kids Who Can’t Read Good and Want to Do Other Stuff Good Too.” The idea of the original film was so bizarre and silly but somehow because of the cast and solid writing, it worked and became a cult classic. Needless to say, Derek Zoolander and Hansel are a unique kind of comedic duo and unlike any other pairing that we have seen on-screen. I think the idea that these two are both male models and lack any form of common sense is what makes them so memorable and funny.
Based on the trailer, this sequel is going to have a lot of that Derek and Hansel chemistry. The story in the sequel seems to follow Derek and Hansel as they age and don’t seem to get fashion nowadays. The story gets even more complicated when they are asked by an interpol agent played by Penélope Cruz to help her save the beautiful people. Now, its up to Derek and Hansel to infiltrate the world of high fashion and find out who is killing these beautiful models.
While a lot of the film does seem to play off the same jokes from the first film, its refreshing to see that Stiller and his writing partners actually crafted a script with a different concept. Even if Zoolander 2 isn’t as funny as the original; it will still get points from me for at least trying to tell a different story unlike the two Hangover sequels.
What I think really stood out in the trailer is the celebrity cameos that include everyone from Justin Bieber to Benedict Cumberbatch. There seems to be quite a few big names in this film and I think they will really add to the comedy in the film.
So enough of me blabbing on, check out the official trailer below and leave a comment letting us know if you are excited to about Zoolander 2
