After a 15-year hiatus, Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) will soon walk down the runway yet again. Zoolander 2 has become one of . if not the . most highly anticipated comedies of the coming year, and the release of its first trailer last week only increased that anticipation. However, not everyone is thrilled with what they saw when the trailer dropped.

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 »
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 »

Time is cruel, especially when you were once the world’s most famous male model.

Franchise rookie Penelope Cruz puts it best: “God help us all.” Welcome to Zoolander 2, the follow-up to the 2001 hit starring Ben Stiller as Derek Zoolander and Owen Wilson as Hansel. Both reprise their roles in the sequel, with… »
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).
(But where’s Billy Zane?)

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.

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....

A new trailer for "Zoolander 2" just dropped, and it's got ridiculously good-looking guest stars galore -- not all of whom survive. Yes, that's Justin Bieber being hunted down and killed (but not before taking one last Blue Steel selfie). And there's Benedict Cumberbatch playing an androgynous supermodel with no eyebrows. And look! Noted "Zoolander" fan Joe Jonas is in the crowd of a fashion show. They'll join Kyle Mooney, Penelope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell, Will Ferrell's muscle suit, Will Ferrell's latte foam portrait, and, of course, Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller when the movie is released February 12, 2016. »

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.
Penélope 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 »

“Zoolander” is still really, really, really ridiculously good-looking after 14 years.
Now the laughing stock of the fashion industry, Ben Stiller (who plays dimwitted male supermodel Derek Zoolander) and Owen Wilson (Hansel) return to stop the most beautiful people in the world — aka Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Usher and Lenny Kravitz — from being assassinated.
“She’s hot,” Wilson says of Cruz. “I trust her.”
