He's a "model idiot"... and he's back in action in a brand-new movie. The teaser for Zoolander 2 is here, so kick back with a refreshing orange mocha frappucino and check it out. Has much changed for the infamous model Zoolander since the film hit theaters in 2001? While we'll have to wait for the new film to hit theaters in February of 2016, I'm going to make an educated guess and say that the Blue Steel creator is still the dim, beautiful man he's always been.
At least, that's what the teaser seems to imply. It's hard being ridiculously good-looking, and perhaps part of the challenge is being too handsome to understand basic concepts, like Roman numerals and puns. Though the teaser doesn't give away too many plot details, it does provide us with some familiar "throwbacks" to the original flick as we navigate through Zoolander's brain. Fans of the original film will certainly recognize the significance of Zoolander's "merman" silhouette, the definition of "eugoogly," and the "no left turn" sign.
We'll have to wait to see exactly what Zoolander has been doing in the years following the original movie, but let's hope that he's been throwing himself into volunteer work for the Center For Children Who Can't Read Good And Want To Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too. After all, what's the point of being ridiculously good-looking if you can't give back?
