It’s been about 14 years since Ben Stiller has graced movie screens as the character Derek Zoolander, a male model with high ambition but a low IQ. The original movie was pretty funny and had some memorable quotes, it can also be named patient zero in the duck face epidemic that has overtaken everyone’s selfies. The movie featured Ben Stiller (Derek Zoolander), his wife Christine Taylor (Matilda Jeffries) and Ben’s movie bro Owen Wilson (Hansel McDonald). The story focused on Ben and Owen as competing models and Will Ferrell (Jacobim Mugatu) as a designer who wants Derek to kill a prime minister. The plan gets foiled and at the end of the movie both Derek and Hansel leave the modeling industry and Derek has a child with Matilda. Derek also opens The Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can’t Read Good and Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too and you get to see his sons first modeling face.
With all that backstory, let’s take a look at the trailer for Derek Zoolander 2
This is just a teaser so no real story points are given, just a friendly reminder that Derek Zoolander is an idiot. If you cut out all the narration, this teaser would only be about 50 seconds long, which I hope isn’t foreshadowing of the how the film is going to be. Besides The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stillers past few movies haven’t been what they used to be.
