ZOOLANDER 2’s First Full-Length Trailer Is Perfect

It's beautiful.

When the teaser trailer for Zoolander 2 arrived back in August, I wrote up a little post about it and mentioned that I suspected it was no longer cool to be a fan of Zoolander. I was delighted to be find out that I was wrong on that front: the response to the first teaser was great, and I was assured - here and on Twitter - that I am nowhere near being alone in my love for Stiller's 2001 film.

All of which is to say: I hope all of you love the first full-length trailer for Zoolander 2 as much as I do. 

Yes. I will fully embrace this silliness. I love that Penelope Cruz and Kristen Wiig have joined the cast. I love that I didn't recognize Benedict Cumberbatch right off the bat (side note: will his character generate a few hot-take think pieces? I believe he will). I love all of the Mugatu stuff (that muscle-suit sight gag is fantastic), the interplay between Stiller and Owen Wilson, the fact that Kyle Mooney (hooray!) pops up for a minute...the only thing I'm not crazy about is seeing Justin Bieber pop up, but I am definitely onboard with him only appearing long enough to be murdered, which I'm assuming is what happens based on the footage above. 

All in all, I am excited about this. Here's hoping that Zoolander 2 is capable of avoiding the same comedy-sequel pitfalls that made Anchorman 2 such a letdown. 

Zoolander 2 arrives February 12th...which means it's opening the same weekend as Deadpool. Which movie's getting your money? Sound off below.
