Benedict Cumberbatch Is The Hot New Supermodel In 'Zoolander 2' Trailer

The Huffington Post The Huffington Post 18/11/2015 Lily Karlin

Zoolander is officially out of season, and Benedict Cumberbatch is in.

In the brand new trailer for "Zoolander 2" released Wednesday, Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and his former rival Hansel (Owen Wilson) are washed-up models from a time of yore. In the new fashion world, Benedict Cumberbatch reigns as All, a hot, young gender fluid model of the contemporary age. (Unfortunately, the not-so-sharp Zoolander and Hansel aren't quite familiar with the limits of the gender binary.) 

The two former it-models reenter the scene when Zoolander is enlisted to help stop a wave of assassinations on the world's most beautiful.

Paramount announced the much-anticipated sequel last March, after Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson surprised Paris Fashion week attendees by walking the Valentino runway in character.

 The first trailer for the film -- released in August -- features Zoolander asking the age-old question: "If God exists, then why did he make ugly people?"

"Zoolander 2" hits theaters Feb. 12, 2016.
