Benedict Cumberbatch is a Supermodel in First Zoolander 2 Trailer

Posted on November 18, 2015

The first trailer for Zoolander 2 is out and it is hilarious. Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) were the top male models in the world. Derek's looks were known and admired by all: Le Tigre, Magnum and -- of course -- Blue Steel. But that was a long, long time ago. Their modeling careers have tanked and the modeling duo is down in the dumps when an Interpol agent named Montana Grosso (Penelope Cruz) asks them to infiltrate the world of high fashion to stop an evil criminal mastermind.

Hansel listens to Montana's pitch and says, "She's hot...I trust her." So they agree to help Montana stop a string of vicious murders. The most beautiful people in the world are all being killed. The last photos show each victim is making Derek's famous look, Blue Steel. We see Justin Bieber cut down in his prime after a thrilling chase. Luckily, he is able to take one last selfie before dying in a very funny scene. Demi Lovato, Usher, Miley Cyrus and Lenny Kravitz are all casualties of the Blue Steel killer.

There is only one criminal mastermind who is capable of such viciousness...the brilliant and evil fashion designer Mugatu (Will Ferrell) who caused so much trouble in the first movie. Yes, he's out of jail and ready to wreak havoc on the beautiful people, including his hapless assistant who gets a drink in the face. You know how Mugatu is about his lattes. Derek and Hansel must rise to the occasion and reclaim their fame to save the beautiful people.

The cast is stellar. One big surprise that the film makers kept under wraps is that Benedict Cumberbatch is in the film. He plays the world's top supermodel named All, who is gender fluid. Derek and Hansel want to know: Is he a man or is she a woman? There is no difference, according to All, who seems to have lost her eyebrows somewhere along the path to superstardom.

Kristen Wiig plays Alexanya Atoz, a woman who has had so much Botox they can barely understand her. Christine Taylor returns as Matilda Jeffries. Other stars who have signed on for the fun include Olivia Munn,. Billy Zane, Fred Marmisen, Kanye West, Madalina Diana Ghenea, and Cyrus Arnold as Derek Zoolander, Jr. The dialogue is a scream and so is the plot. We just cannot wait until this film comes out.

The film was directed by Ben Stiller from a script by Justin Theroux. It hits theaters February 12, 2016. Take a look:
