Is there a documented record for the most celebrity cameos in a single film? If there was, Zoolander 2 just broke it. The film opens with the murder of Justin Bieber and closes with ... well, without spoiling it, let’s say it closes with a whole slew of more cameos, and there’s at least 20 more in between. These are some of the biggest names from the world of fashion, music, TV, film, journalism, and pop culture. If Zoolander 2 was a party, the guest list alone would make it the greatest ever thrown. But Zoolander 2 is not a party. It is a movie. A bad movie. Never have so many cool people appeared in something so patently lame — or, as idiot male model Derek Zoolander mispronounces it, “luh-may.”
One of the funniest parts of the Zoolander 2 trailers features Owen Wilson’s Hansel hurling increasingly large and dangerous objects at Ben Stiller’s Derek Zoolander in an effort to trigger his magical model powers. You can see a slightly extended version of that scene in one of two new clips Paramount has released to promote the long-delayed comedy sequel, while the other…well…it’s pretty special.
It’s only apropos that Zoolander 2, a film about beautiful people’s supernatural abilities to help market luxury goods, would have a razor-sharp ad campaign to match. The PR team for the long-awaited sequel to Ben Stiller‘s 2001 haute couture comedy...
February 12 of next year will finally reunite audiences with bubbleheaded supermodel Derek Zoolander in a sequel to Ben Stiller’s 2001 fashion-world farce. Naturally, a film about the world of stylish haute couture advertisements would need only the...
Independent studio Relativity Media has released a surprising press release indicating that they’ve scheduled five new films for theatrical debuts in 2016. The announcement that a movie studio would release more movies is only surprising in this...
Cult comedies that attempt to regroup for a sequel many years after the original film often have mixed success. You’ll probably find few people who like Anchorman 2 or Dumb and Dumber To as much as the originals. But, that hasn’t stopped Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson from returning for Zoolander 2 and, despite the odds, this actually looks really funny.
The first trailer for Zoolander 2 arrived back in August, but we haven’t seen anything new from the long-awaited sequel since then. With the film’s release only three months away, now might be a good time to remind us that Derek and Hansel are returning to the big screen with all the Blue Steel they can manage. Speaking of which, Paramount has released two new posters featuring the really, really ridiculously good looking duo giving some rather fierce face.
No Escape, a disturbing action thriller, is a change of pace for Lake Bell, who’s best known for lighter fare. By her own admission, that’s by design. We talked about that, the shooting of the movie’s most memorable scene (where Owen Wilson throws the couple’s children from a hotel rooftop), and her desire to direct what she called “big-ass movies.”
His first four words are perhaps the most unnecessary introduction in the history of human civilization:
Boy, that Masterminds title feels so ironic now, huh?
