“When the world’s most beautiful musical celebrities are systematically assassinated with formerly famous male model Derek Zoolander’s iconic “Blue Steel” look on their face, Interpol recruits Derek and his friend Hansel McDonald to infiltrate a new and different world of high fashion in order to put a stop to it. Meanwhile, Derek’s rival Jacobim Mugatu is set free and is seeking revenge.”
As far as stupid pointless sequels that are way too late, a Zoolander one is probably the best kind of stupid, the sort I can get behind. Also the original was one of Ben Stiller’s least popular comedies ($60.8 million worldwide at the box office), and back then I don’t think anyone but his most hardcore fans expected to ever see a Zoolander 2. Well here it is now, a little late to the party but still just as dumb as the last one and I wouldn’t really want it any other way.
Ben Stiller directed and co-wrote Zoolander 2 with Justin Theroux, Nicholas Stoller and John Hamburg. Starring in it are Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Benedict Cumberbatch, Billy Zane, Olivia Munn, Justin Theroux, Macaulay Culkin (???), Justin Bieber (shown getting shot in all the trailers so far, big selling point), Lenny Kravitz, Demi Lovato, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West(?????).
Zoolander 2 opens February 12th in the US, going up against Deadpool.
