Zoolander

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!

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.
