Zoolander 2  is coming in 2016, and it has a lot of returning stars from the original movie. Zoolander 2 takes off about 10 years after the last one, and Derek & Hansel are totally forgotten in the modelling world, and as celebrities. The dimwitted models are, going to have to re-invent themselves, one final runway performance is scheduled for the old models, vs the young ones. Mugatu will be back, and Penelope Cruz is the new love interest.

Recently, in Paris, there was a Derek & Hansel promo sighting. Stiller and Wilson took over the runway for a ‘viral’ video and images to get Zoolander 2 into the news. Sort of brilliant if you ask me. So shooting has begun, and the movie could make a late 2015 release if they wrap this thing up fast. The original Zoolander movie only took 3 months to shoot, so I suspect about the same filming time for this one. I’ll update the release when shooting is finished, and the new Zoolander 2 is in post production.

The Numbers

Zoolander barely cracked 45 million at the box office, the DVD sales were the turning point. Those days are long gone though, and VOD numbers aren’t saving any movies these days. If you can’t hit it strong at the box office, you won’t be counting on external buys to break even. Zoolander 2 is going to have a challenge to make any real revenue for the studios, lets hope Stiller’s production company is offsetting the cost of this film.

Zoolander 2 Release Date

Look for the new movie in 2016, but … could be a late 2015 movie release.

Who’s In It?

Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz,  Will Ferrell

Here’s the infamous gas fight scene from Zoolander until a trailer comes out.

 Final Thoughts

Owen Wilson went from one of the top paid comedic actors to… well.. Drillbit Taylor. He and Stiller could both use another hit at the box office, but I’m not sure Zoolander 2 will be the film to propel anyone’s career into a new direction. Zoolander was fun, it was original. Now that all the gags and stupidity have all been done in the first one, I suspect the film will be along the lines of Dumb and Dumber 2, in the disappointment level.

Fuck (excuse my french) was that movie bad.
