73 Questions with Derek Zoolander

When some new TV spots and posters arrived last week, selling Zoolander No. 2 like it was a tantalizing fragrance you could pick up at your local department store, we also pointed out that Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Penelope Cruz had landed on the cover of Vogue. You can check out their photoshoot recreating some famous spreads from the fashion magazine right here, but this video we have today is even better.

Vogue has a video series called 73 Questions where they ask a given personality, you guessed it, 73 questions. And this time the inquisition has Derek Zoolander answering some hard-hitting questions about his favorite season, what’s on his mind, what’s his favorite country, and what happens to models when they retire. Zoolander has the perfect responses for all 73 Questions. Watch! Read More »

Zoolander 2 TV Spots

One of my most anticipated movies of 2016 is Zoolander No. 2, the sequel to the fashion comedy spawned from a character that first appeared on the VH1 Fashion Awards. The first film is a favorite comedy of mine for being so relentlessly dumb and just plain goofy, with two of the best comedic performances that Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell have ever given. And now we get another whiff of the sequel with some new TV spots, including one that perfectly parodies the always stupid fragrance ads on TV all the time. Read More »

Gallery 1988 Zoolander

We’re just under a month from the release of the long-awaited comedy sequel Zoolander No. 2 (or 2oolander), and in honor of the beloved comedy, Gallery 1988 has opened a fantastic new gallery show. Paying tribute to the original Zoolander starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell, the Melrose art gallery has put together an exhibition of works called the Really, Really, Really, Ridiculously Good Looking Art Show. And just like Derek Zoolander’s signature look, Magnum, they’re beautiful. Read More »

Zoolander 2 international trailer

It’s a bit surprising to realize now that the first Zoolander actually wasn’t a huge hit when it came out back in 2001. It was the 55th highest domestic grosser of the year, behind such gems as Rat Race and The Animal. Like most good comedies, however, it eventually found an audience, and over the past decade and a half, it’s become so beloved that it’s now spawned a sequel.

Zoolander 2 puts Derek (Ben Stiller), already an old-timer on his way out in the first film, back into the fashion game. This time, he’s wrapped up in a larger investigation of a mysterious killer targeting the world’s most beautiful people (of which Justin Bieber is apparently one). Fortunately, he’s got plenty of help beside him, including his rival-turned-BFF Hansel (Owen Wilson) and an impossibly gorgeous Interpol agent (Penélope Cruz). Watch the Zoolander 2 international trailer after the jump.

UPDATE: There’s also a new Zoolander 2 poster, which you can see after the jump. Read More »

zoolander death scene

Not enough modern comedies end with the demise of their characters. At least that’s what writer-director Adam McKay thinks. He’s been itching to kill off some of his characters for years now, including Baxter (Anchorman) and the horrific yet charming leads in Step Brothers, Brennan Huff (Will Ferrell) and Dale Doback (John C. Reilly). Another protagonist McKay would’ve enjoyed seeing perish in pure agony? Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller).

Read about the Zoolander death scene we never saw after the jump.

Zoolander 2 trailer

A decade and a half after he saved the Prime Rib of Propecia with the power of a single fierce look, Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) is back in the new trailer for Zoolander 2, along with his BFF Hansel (Owen Wilson). And you know what that means: things are about to get really, really, ridiculously good-looking — and really, really ridiculously stupid — up in here.

Zoolander 2 brings back Will Ferrell as Jacobim Mugatu, and introduces Penelope Cruz as an Interpol agent and Kristen Wiig as a fashion designer. Justin Bieber stars as himself, and Benedict Cumberbatch as… well, you’ll see. Watch the Zoolander 2 trailer after the jump. Read More »

Zoolander 2 poster (header)

Though it’s been well over a decade since Derek saved the Prime Rib of Propecia, he looks hardly a day older in the first posters for Zoolander 2. For that matter, Hansel hasn’t aged at all either. They must have hyperbaric chambers at home a la J.P. Pruitt. Check out the new Zoolander 2 posters after the jump.  Read More »

Zoolander 2 teaser

It’s been 14 years since male model Derek Zoolander saved the Malaysian prime minister from being assassinated by a really, really, ridiculously good looking merman. But now Ben Stiller is back as the dimwitted fashion icon.

The teaser trailer for Zoolander 2 hand just debuted online, and while there’s no footage from the movie, it’s clear that Stiller is back in clueless male model mode as he argues with Stephen Hawking’s voiceover about the title of the sequel.

Zoolander 2 Valentino (2)

Every image we see from Zoolander 2 seems to get more and more odd. Derek and Hansel (Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson) looked normal in the first reveal, but then they got a little weirder at the Eiffel Tower, followed by the debut of Kristen Wiig’s totally unrecognizable look. Now, Stiller has revealed that Zoolander’s son, who made a brief appearance at the end of the first film, is featured in the sequel. He’s played by actor Cyrus Arnold and, well, let’s just say I think we know where the jokes are going from here. See the Derek Zoolander son photo below. Read More »
