21 November 2015 8:50 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

However, not everyone is thrilled with what they saw when the trailer dropped. Lgbt activists have now called for a boycott of the film due to its allegedly offensive portrayal of the transgender community. THR reports that the controversy in question stems from a particular character in the film named All, portrayed by geek messiah Benedict Cumberbatch. All . as the name would suggest . is an androgynous supermodel that does not fit into the binary perception of gender. When introduced to Derek and Hansel, the former asks if All is a male or female model, followed by the latter clarifying with »

Outrage Watch: Benedict Cumberbatch's latest role slammed: 'The modern equivalent of blackface'

20 November 2015 5:53 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's semi-regular rundown of entertainment-related kerfuffles. Not anxious enough already? Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week. Does Benedict Cumberbatch's "Zoolander 2" character represent the equivalent of "blackface" for the "androgyne/trans/non-binary" community? Sarah Rose seems to think so -- and now the activist has started a petition calling for a boycott of the film, in which the "Sherlock" star plays an androgynous supermodel who, in the film's recently-released trailer, is asked by Owen Wilson's character whether he or she has "a hot dog or a bun?"  "Cumberbatch’s character is clearly portrayed as an over-the-top, cartoonish mockery of androgyne/trans/non-binary individuals," reads the petition. "This is the modern equivalent of using blackface to represent a minority.  "If the producers and screenwriters of Zoolander wanted to provide social commentary on the presence of »

The trailer for Zoolander 2 is so hot right now

18 November 2015 8:38 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Break out your best “Blue Steel” and grab an orange mocha Frappuccino because the first full-length trailer for Zoolander 2 is here.

The sequel to the 2001 cult comedy stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson as the two really, really ridiculously good-looking male models, Derek Zoolander and Hansel. Unfortunately, the pair are not so hot right now, as Derek and Hansel appear to have been pushed out of the fashion circuit by younger, more androgynous models.

Like the sequel before it, however, Zoolander 2’s catwalk squabbles are eventually overshadowed by the nefarious plans of evil mastermind Jacobim Mugatu (Will Ferrell) and his assistant-cum-barista Todd (Nathan Lee Graham).

Joining the fashion fray for the first time are Penelope “She’s hot. I trust her.” Cruz, Kristen WiigFred ArmisenOlivia MunnWillie Nelson, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

(But where’s Billy Zane?)

Full Trailer: "Zoolander 2"

18 November 2015 7:33 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount Pictures has brought the trailer for the "Zoolander" sequel online which finally gives us a proper idea of the film's storyline. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprise their roles as Derek and Hansel who, ten years later, have been recruited by Penelope Cruz's Interpol agent to travel around Europe and find out who has been killing some of the world's most beautiful people.

Cruz, Will Ferell and an almost unrecognisable Kristen Wiig serve as the main characters in the trailer, but there's a host of other celebrity cameos in the clip including a certain British actor right at the start that will have people excited. Shot around Rome over three months last year, the film is slated to open February 12th.

Zoolander 2 Trailer Arrives

18 November 2015 7:30 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Serious question: Does Justin Bieber have enough self awareness to understand the joke he is part of in the new Zoolander 2 trailer? Benedict Cumberbatch, however, definitely yes.Someone is killing off the world's most beautiful people, leading Interpol to recruit Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald (Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, respectively) for the most perplexingly buzzed sequel to a minor comedy in recent years. It was a one joke sketch stretched out to feature length the first time, but I suppose that if you really, really like that one joke you'll be pleased to know that they've got plenty more of it.The trailer lies below....

He was once the world's most famous male model. Even his looks were household names. Le Tigre. Magnum. And of course, Blue Steel. But that was a long, long, long time ago. Now, Derek Zoolander is back, and the world of male modeling has changed. Paramount Pictures has released the first full trailer for Zoolander 2, and it brings Derek out of retirement, along with a whole slew of celebrity cameos. Things kick of with the 'androgynous' Benedict Cumberbatch being asked if he has a hot dog or a bun. And it gets crazier from their.

Pen&#233lope Cruz stars as Montana Grosso. She recruits Derek (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) to help stop a killer who is targeting the most beautiful people in the world. And this assassin is starting with Justin Bieber. All of the targets are dying with Derek's signature look. Blue Steel. And it is »
