The original Zoolander came out almost fifteen years ago now, which makes me feel really old. I’m not sure if anyone was really clamoring for a sequel to this great film, but we’re getting one anyway so deal with it. The first trailer for Zoolander 2 is available above.
The good news is that Zoolander 2 looks pretty funny. Sure, there are some recycled jokes from the first film, but I’m really liking this new stuff. The addition of Penelope Cruz and Kristen Wiig is great and I assume there will be another Billy Zane cameo. He’s a cool dude. Also Justin Bieber gets murdered, so there’s that.
When you decide to make a sequel after fifteen years, it’s probably less about money and more about thinking you have a funny story to tell, so I’m holding out hope for this one. Or maybe it’s about money. I’m trying to be less cynical over here and you’re not helping.
Zoolander 2 comes out February 12, 2016. I bet the guy who thought of “2oolander” got a big bonus.
