The teaser trailer for Zoolander 2 has just dropped from Paramount Pictures. The film, which is due in cinemas in 2016, 15 years after the original movie, stars Ben Stiller as the supermodel title character, alongside Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen, Penelope Cruz and Cyrus Arnold.

The original movie grossed a little over $60 million worldwide back in 2001 from a budget of just under half of that, though the film has a huge following and gained a progressive cult status in the years that have passed since then.

This Zoolander 2 teaser is so hot right now!

2 August 2015 2:55 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

 A day after it leaked online, the official teaser trailer has landed for the long awaited sequel to Zoolander, aptly titled Zoolander 2 (or is that 2oolander?) For fans of the original (if you're not raise your hand slowly and go and stand in the corner facing the wall) the teaser offers us an insightful look into the very mind of supermodel Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller). We travel into his tiny brain, ably navigated by the voice of Stephen Hawking as we discover its inner workings...for example what a eugoogly is and that 3+4=34. Plot details are scarce but Stiller (who's also directing) has revealed that it's set ten years after the first film and mostly in Europe. Of course Owen Wilson is back as fellow male model Hansel (fingers crossed for a walk-off) and the cast also features Penelope Cruz, Christine Taylor, Kristen Wiig and Cyrus Arnold (as Derek Jr. »

‘Zoolander 2’ Trailer: Ben Stiller Returns to Model Form in New Teaser (Video)

2 August 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Not since 2001 — or last week — has the modeling world seen such phenomenal stupidity. Derek  Zoolander, the world’s dumbest model, returns in the new teaser trailer for “Zoolander 2,” starring Ben Stiller. Opening with a Big Bang and traveling through space and time to land in Zoolander’s face, Paramount’s new clip ponder’s life’s great mysteries, including the snapping of brain synapses that must occur for someone to be so dense. The film reunites stars Stiller and Owen Wilson from the 2001 cult hit comedy, “Zoolander,” which follows male model and imbecile Zoolander as he attempts to foil the assassination of the prime. »

Travel through Derek Zoolander's brain in the entertaining first teaser trailer for Zoolander 2

2 August 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Take a trip through Derek Zoolander's brain in the first teaser trailer for Zoolander 2.

With a voiceover inspired by Professor Stephen Hawking, the teaser asks all of life's most important questions, such as "Why are we here?", "Is there intelligent life beyond our galaxy?", and, um, "If God exists, why did he make ugly people?"

The trailer then shows Derek (Ben Stiller) as he tries to get his head around the comedy sequel's (not so) complicated title.

"Jesus, you are so freaking stupid," the voiceover says. "It's insane."

Zoolander 2 is due for release in 2016, with Stiller and Owen Wilson returning as their alter egos Derek and Hansel.

Stiller has confirmed that both Penelope Cruz and Billy Zane will appear in the sequel, while Lewis Hamilton was spotted filming a cameo alongside Oliva Munn.

Ben Stiller is back as Derek Zoolander in first Zoolander 2 teaser trailer

2 August 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back after a 14 year absence, Ben Stiller’s male model Derek Zoolander returns in the first official teaser trailer for Zoolander 2

Zoolander himself is only shown briefly in the trailer, but is introduced by none other than Stephen Hawking.

Only a few days ago, the trailer was leaked online, but now Paramount Pictures has officially unleashed the new teaser. Check it out here…

2001’s Zoolander is oftentimes hailed as one of the funniest comedies of the previous decade. Although it was not a major box office success, raking in around $60 million worldwide on a $28 million budget, over the years it has become a beloved cult classic.

Zoolander 2 is set for release on February 12th, 2016, with Stiller returning alongside Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor, Billy Zane and Will Ferrell, while new additions include Penelope Cruz (Nine), Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns) and Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse).

Watch: ‘Zoolander 2′ First Teaser Enters Model’s Brain

2 August 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After its premature online debut on Saturday, Paramount officially released the trailer for Ben Stiller’s “Zoolander 2″ on Sunday, taking a look into Derek Zoolander’s brain.

Featuring such jokes as a throwback to Zoolander’s mispronunciation of eulogy (“eugoogly”), the trailer flies through Zoolander’s inner workings, with a Stephen Hawking-like narrator explaining the Big Bang Theory. The male model interrupts the serious dialogue with his own question.

“If God exists, why did he make ugly people?”

Zoolander then argues with the narrator over the styling of the sequel’s title, confused by both “2oolander” and “Zoolander II.”

Stiller returns to play Zoolander in the sequel to the 2001 cult favorite comedy, which follows a dim (but really, really good looking) male model as he unwittingly becomes an assassin. Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor and Will Ferrell will also return to star. Kristen Wiig, Billy Zane, Fred Armisen, Justin Bieber, »

Watch: First Fun Teaser Trailer for 'Zoolander 2' Starring Ben Stiller

2 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"If God exists, then why did he make ugly people?" Paramount has unveiled the first official teaser trailer for Ben Stiller's highly anticipated sequel Zoolander 2, starring Ben Stiller and directed by Ben Stiller. The cast includes a whole bunch of other names, but this teaser only features Stiller as Derek Zoolander and some fun CGI animation. Oh, and Stephen Hawking's voice, or so it sounds like it's him. Owen Wilson did show up at the catwalk event earlier this year, so he's still in the mix in this somewhere. This teaser is presumably playing in front of Mission: Impossible all weekend, but in the meantime you can catch it below. Here's the first official teaser trailer for Ben Stiller's Zoolander 2, direct from YouTube: Zoolander 2 is written and directed by Justin Theroux (writer of Tropic Thunder, director of Dedication).

A trailer for “Zoolander 2″ has leaked online ahead of the sequel’s 2016 release.

The unauthorized video begins with a voiceover from a Stephen Hawking soundalike and a journey through the cosmos before arriving in the brain of Derek Zoolander, which is full of hairdryers, orange mocha Frappucinos, incorrect math equations (3 + 4 = 34) and words like “eugoogly.”

“If God exists, then why did he make ugly people?” Ben Stiller asks in the clip, pondering one of Zoolander’s most troubling philosophical quandaries.

Stiller is back as the dim male model. Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell and Christine Taylor all reprise their roles from the 2001 original. Stiller directed from a script he wrote with Justin Theroux.

Wet Hot American Summer: the obscure cult favourite is about to get a TV reboot

28 July 2015 12:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It was a flop when it first came out but now this surreal comedy has been turned into a Netflix series. Could the A-list cast members like Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler have anything to do with it?

It started in 2005 with a double-sided DVD, found by a friend in the bargain bin of a local discount shop. On one side was The Independent, a Jerry Stiller comedy about a B-movie director (“excruciatingly unamusing” – The Miami Herald). The other side didn’t look terribly promising, either: the film’s title, Wet Hot American Summer, sounded like top-shelf smut. On its sleeve was what looked like a crudely drawn knock-off of a National Lampoon poster. It seemed at best like it would be a bawdy, brainless comedy in the manner of the 80s cult favourite Porky’s, and at worse its sequel, Porky’s Revenge.

Legendary Producer Jerry Weintraub Dies at 77

6 July 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jerry Weintraub, the colorful and controversial producer whose films included “Nashville,” “Diner,” “The Karate Kid” and the trio of “Ocean’s Eleven” films, died Monday of cardiac arrest in Santa Barbara, Calif. He was 77. He had been in poor health recently.

When he received Variety‘s Creative Leadership Award in 2013, Weintraub told Variety that he had a yacht and a Rolls-Royce, but was “not a big Hollywood guy.” Some would disagree. He was actually an old-school Hollywood showman, who understood the relationship between production and marketing. He was also a snappy dresser — his shoes were colorful and fun — who knew how to work the room and how to work the press: He was always available to the media and when he had a film in release, he knew how to maximize public awareness.

But the showiness was backed by hard work. His savvy came after decades of performing in many different jobs in the industry. »

Nantucket Film Festival Celebrates Risk-Taking Writers

24 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Nantucket has been a creative refuge for decades,” multihyphenate Ben Stiller says. “The festival has coalesced the film-writing community and celebrated individuality — in a way that is part of being on the island: independent, isolated (so as to) foster risk-taking.”

Stiller’s parents — Jerry and the late Anne Meara — were original supporters. “I’ve watched this thing become an amazing success that celebrates real talent.”

A Nantucket Film Festival board member, Stiller often attends the fest, which turns 20 this year. He regularly hosts a lively, Sro All-Star Comedy Roundtable that has welcomed Mike Myers, Seth Meyers, Bill Hader, Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman and Brian Williams, among others.

The event will kick off June 24 with A24’s David Foster Wallace drama “The End of the Tour,” starring Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg. Documentary “The Best of Enemies” about the televised debates between William F. Buckley Jr. and Gore Vidal during the 1968 presidential election, »
