ZOOLANDER has solidified itself as a cult classic. You’d be hard-pressed to not hear it mentioned at least once a day/ week/ month in your group of friends. In fact, it recently picked up steam again when ANT-MAN slipped in this sly reference:

ANT MAN ZOOLANDER

Anywhoo, the creatively named sequel, ZOOLANDER 2, is set to debut in 2016 and now we’ve got the trailer. Are you ready for some Blue Steel? Le Tigre? Magnum? Well get ready because here it is!

In this iteration, Derek is tasked by Interpol (Penelope Cruz, because obviously) to infiltrate the world of high fashion in order to find out who is killing the world’s most beautiful people (Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Usher and Demi Lovato — um okay?).  At his side is Hansel (Owen Wilson) – “he’s so hot right now.” And it looks like along the way, many, MANY celebrity cameos will happen. But the thing that made me laugh the hardest was Mugatu (Will Ferrell) asking his dutiful assistant Todd (Nathan Lee Graham) where is his goddamn latte.

ZOOLANDER 2 opens on February 12, 2016.
