We couldn’t deal with the news when we heard that Zoolander 2 is happening. It’s nearly 15 of years when Derek Zoolander (portrayed by Ben Stiller) and Hansel (portrayed by Owen Wilson) strutted their stuff (and took off their underwear) in Zoolander back in 2001.
We first saw Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson make the announcement when they crashed (and clashed) Paris Fashion week earlier this year.
Paramount Pictures has now finally released some more images and we’re hoping to see a trailer soon.
The one poster sees Zoolander and Hansel posing for selfies and we’re sure to see these guys make fun of our ever-increasing narcissistic selfie culture. Also they seem to be very VERY close now.
The other poster takes the form of a fragrance ad.
In my opinion, it’s the best time for this movie to be released as the franchise has garnered enough of a cult following and never have we been more ridiculous when it comes to self obsession. Statistics even show that more people were killed by selfie related injuries than by shark attacks. It seems like people just don’t get that there’s more to life than being just ridiculously good-looking.
There is also a Zoolander Instagram account you should check out which features shots from Derek Zoolander‘s every day life, like getting Starbucks or taking #twinsies pics with Justin Bieber.
Zoolander 2 is set to hit cinemas in February 2015.
