Bad news: it looks like a lot of America’s favorite celebrities have been assassinated… at least in the universe of the upcoming film Zoolander 2. There have been teasers galore for the movie, but today we have our first official trailer, which you can watch above.
Here’s a rundown of the general plot of the movie: Derek and Hansel are took old to keep up with an evolving fashion industry, having essentially been laughed out of the business. But suddenly, Hollywood is rocked by a wave of high-profile assassinations, with all of the victims–Demi Lovato, Usher, Justin Bieber, Lenny Kravitz and Miley Cyrus, as quickly shown at 1:05 in the trailer–making Zoolander’s classic “Blue Steel” look in their moments of expiration.
In an attempt to get to the bottom of what’s going on, Derek and Hansel are brought back into the fold, to infiltrate the fashion world and find out what’s going on. It turns out that this rash of famous deaths coincides with Mugatu being freed from prison, so it looks like the fashion mogul/inventor of the piano key necktie is definitely a person of interest.
It’s possible that we’ve buried the lede here: Benedict Cumberbatch is also in this movie, playing All, an androgynous super model who is now the biggest name in the industry. All is so androgynous, in fact, that it’s not actually revealed what gender he/she is: When asked, All responds, “All is all.”
After so long, Zoolander 2 is finally happening, and we couldn’t be more excited… especially at Bieber saying “Oh fudge!” before getting shot.
