Ben Stiller's fashion comedy sequel struts into cinemas on February 12
Skrillex, A$AP Rocky and Justin Bieber all appear briefly in a new trailer for Zoolander 2.
The comedy 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 last year in Rome from a script he co-wrote with his Tropic Thunder collaborator Justin Theroux. Alongside Stiller and Wilson, Will Ferrell and Christine Taylor also reprise 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. Kanye West is also rumoured to have a cameo role in the sequel, though this has yet to be confirmed.
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.
