Zoolander 2

The 2016 Razzies have been announced and Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has collected 8 nominations and was just beat out by Zoolander 2‘s 9 nominations for the year’s worst film. Snyder, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Jesse Eisenberg all garnered individual nominations with the ladies of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Amy Adams and Gal Gadot, being the only ones from the film that came away without a nomination. Check out the entire nomination list below. (more…)

Zoolander 2 is just as dumb and silly as the original film.  Some people will take that statement as an endorsement of the movie, and some will take it as a criticism; how you read it will likely dictate if you’ll enjoy this 15-years-later sequel or not.  For this reviewer, it was meant as a compliment: much like the original, this next chapter skewers people, places, and things in such a way that the presentation is always vapid but the satire is usually spot-on.

The dynamic duo of Derek and Hansel are back, with the sequel to arguably the most quotable movie ever made: Zoolander.  Oddly enough, the original wasn’t that big of a hit back in 2001 when it premiered in theaters; earning only enough to place 55th out of the highest domestic grossing films of that year, behind projects like Rat Race and The Animal.  The cult classic status it has accrued since then will most likely garner some major numbers this time around, however.  Read on for the plot summary of the film, the international trailer, and promotional poster for Zoolander 2!

Justin Bieber has just tweeted a picture that hints he might have joined the cast of Zoolander 2. While my first impression was that this was just another Bieber prank, like the time he tweeted out the Batman V Superman script hinting he might be Robin, there’s evidence in the form of Ben Stiller‘s Instagram that this might not just be another Bieber run around.

Ben Stiller is one of those actors that tends to win a few and lose a few.  For every Permanent Midnight, there’s an Along Came Polly; for every Reality Bites, there is a Meet the Fockers.  One of those big wins was 2001’s Zoolander, a project that was written and directed by Stiller, in which he starred as an egotistic male model that was as intelligent as he was handsome.  While Stiller’s Derek Zoolander was definitely the star of the film, Will Farrell brought on plenty of the laughs as fashion designer and brainwashing bad guy, Jacobim Mugatu. Zoolander 2 has been rumored for quite some time but, like Ghostbusters, the sequel news ebbs and flows depending on who happens to be holding the microphone whenever the subject is brought up.  Well, it looks like Zoolander 2 may finally be getting some traction, and one of the original stars has confirmed that after a long wait, the script is ready to go.
