New ‘Zoolander 2’ footage revealed in international trailer – watch

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are joined by Penelope Cruz, Benedict Cumberbatch and Justin Bieber

A new international trailer for next year’s Zoolander 2 has been released.

The two-and-a-half minute teaser mixes fresh snippets from Ben Stiller’s comedy sequel with footage familiar from the previous trailer, including cameos from Justin Bieber as himself and Benedict Cumberbatch as a controversial character called All which has been labelled transphobic by some LGBT groups.

The eagerly-anticipated sequel follows Ben Stiller’s Derek Zoolander and Owen Wilson’s Hansel McDonald as they struggle to find their place in the cutthroat modern fashion world, before a secret agent played by Penelope Cruz recruits them to infiltrate a dangerous organisation which is systematically killing off the world’s “beautiful people”.

Writer-director-star Ben Stiller shot Zoolander 2 earlier this year in Rome from a script he has co-written with his Tropic Thunder collaborator Justin Theroux. Alongside Stiller and Wilson, Will Ferrell and Christine Taylor are also reprising their roles from the original Zoolander film.

Joining them in the sequel are Cruz, Kristen Wiig and Portlandia‘s Fred Armisen, while Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande and Willie Nelson have all signed up for cameos too.

Released in 2001, the original film followed Stiller’s Derek Zoolander as he got sucked into a plot by corrupt fashion executives to assassinate the Prime Minister of Malaysia. Stiller’s film has gained a sizeable cult following in the years since its release and Zoolander 2 is set for release on February 12, 2016.
