The 5 Fiercest Moments from the 'Zoolander 2' Trailer!
Written by Katie Marzullo
 
It’s been 15 years, but everyone knows that true beauty is ageless. Thus we welcome Derek Zoolander and Hansel back into our lives for another round of international intrigue!
 
Yes, folks, it’s true, after years of rumors and bumps in the development road, Zoolander 2 (AKA 2oolander) will be hitting our screens in the coming year, and the first trailer has already sashayed down the runway!
 
 
 
The sequel to the 2001 hit will see Derek (Ben Stiller) and his BFF Hansel (Owen Wilson) as washed-up male models – it seems Magnum could not sustain Derek for long, and now even the once “so hot right now” Hansel finds himself in Derek’s last season Prada shoes. But it’s okay because they have a bigger cause! Mugatu (Will Ferrell) is out of prison and ready to wreak havoc and keytar neckties on the world once more, and only Derek & Hansel can stop him!
 
Here are some other highlights from the trailer:
 
1. Benedict Cumberbatch is Everything All!
The London Academy-trained Shakespearean actor appears in the film as a gender-fluid model who will clearly be challenging Derek’s old-school perceptions.  Times are a-changin’, Derek, get with the program! All will make sense soon…
 
2. Blue Steel + Biebs 5EVA!
Blue Steel has become a cultural phenomenon, but there’s a dark side – someone is eliminating all the world’s most beautiful people but not before they snap a selfie of themselves rocking Derek’s signature look. What can this mean?? How is Justin Bieber involved??
 
3. Cruzin’ with Penelope
While Derek’s boo Matilda presumably chills at home raising a brood of future supermodels (their son is 15 now – I wonder if we’ll get a glimpse of him??), Derek and Hansel are off globetrotting with the mysterious Interpol agent Montana Grosso (Penelope Cruz). Is she truly hot enough to trust? Or could she be leading Derek and Hansel into more (fabulous) trouble?
 
4. Snatch dat Wiig!
The amazing Kristen Wiig is featured, but you wouldn’t know it at first! Sporting some cray cray plastic surgery and over-the-top ensembles, the “SNL” alum is virtually unrecognizable as Alexanya Atoz if not for her particular brand of humor. Guys, I’m kinda shipping Alexanya and Mugatu right now…? #Alexatu #Muganya
 
5. Fashion Forward
No movie about the fashion world would be complete without some fierce looks, and it appears this sequel will deliver… not to mention some rather fetching disguises. I’ll be honest, I’m feeling Derek’s goatee at the end of the trailer!
 
Zoolander 2 will hit the catwalk on February 12, 2016! Now VOGUE!
