I usually don’t go in for slapstick movies these days, having somewhere grown out of the genre but Zoolander still tickles me in spots I am not proud of. I’m not sure what it is, maybe the fact the actors are not taking themselves seriously or that they are obviously having so much fun you can’t help but get wrapped up in the moment with them. That being said when I found out they were making a number 2 I was a bit dubious. Could Zoolander 2 replicate the success of the first when I think most of that was based on the fact it was new (much like Anchorman)? Well after watching this trailer I am still in mixed minds. I mean come on, you get to see Beiber die and it has Penélope Cruz, Kristen Wiig and Benedict Cumberbatch so stars they are NOT missing out on. New jokes, perhaps…
I think Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson’s Derek and Hansel are brilliant though and Will Ferrell’s Mugatu is nefariously fashionably evil! Also, with a story as deep and intricate as Inception we are all going to have to watch it a few times to understand what is going on…
Models Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) must stop a conspiracy to kill the world’s most beautiful people.
I know! Poor Trevor started sweating at Models he was thinking so much!
Have a watch and see what you think:
It does look like silly fun though. Expect this to strut on the catwalk on 12 February.
