Paramount releases Zoolander 2 trailer, “Long time no Z”

Paramount Pictures has finally released the first “Zoolander 2” trailer, getting fans excited for the premiere of the long-awaited follow-up. The studio had been teasing the trailer for the past few weeks, many fans have been waiting for the sequel to hit local theaters for almost fifteen years now.

It may be hard to believe but the original “Zoolander” film released back in 2001, now an older but still ‘ridiculously good looking’ Zoolander will return with his friends to save his expanded career.

In the film, which is set to release early next year, Derek and Hansel are modeling again but have taken on several new projects as well. Just when everything seemed to be perfect, an opposing company attempts to destroy their business and ruin the Zoolander clan’s operations.

Ben Stiller will direct the new film, as well as star in it. Justin Theroux is writing the screenplay for the project. Also returning to their roles are Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor and Billy Zane.

Just like the first film in the series offered, you can expect a long-list of celebrity cameos and surprise appearances from popular actors and friends of the cast and crew. So far it’s been reported that Benedict Cumberbatch, Olivia Munn, Kristen Wiig, Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Penélope Cruz will be featured in the film. You can checkout the first official trailer for the film below, thanks to an upload from Paramount Pictures released earlier this morning.

Fans of the character won’t have to wait too long to see the movie hit theaters, “Zoolander 2” will premiere on February 12, 2015.
