Zoolander 2 Relax Trailer (2016)

Final trailer for Zoolander 2, which reminds audiences that tickets are already on sale at Fandango, gives added focus to the song that stuck in viewers heads from the first installment. It's time to once again, Relax.

3% Body Fat. 1% Brain Activity. Derek Zoolander and Hansel, who have long been forgotten, must return to the world of high fashion to save the world's pop stars.

It's hard to think of another film that will feature as many cameos as Zoolander 2. Just take a look at the film's IMDB page, and discover faces that we haven't even been hinted to yet in any of the trailers (or TV spots). I mean, damn.

Think you recognize the "Evil DJ"? That is Justin Theroux, who not only helped write the film's screenplay, but at one time was set to direct. For those of you into US Weekly, you likely know that Justin Theroux is married to Jennifer Aniston.

Though it's been 15 years since the first Zoolander installment, Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller are putting some faith on how well they aged by having the story take place only ten years after the original.

The marketing for Zoolander 2 started great and then became worrisome, creating a fear around the TA office that the film was prepping to flop. After kicking things off with some funny scenes, every trailer and TV spot after seemed to use a good majority of the same footage--not boosting our confidence. Besides a cool marketing stunt in Rome (shown below), which was fitting considering the film's announcement came during a runway stunt involving Stiller and Wilson, we've been left with more of the same.

That is until now! Hands down the best trailer of the bunch. So much so that we are left with only two complaints...

1. Why hasn't Paramount released an official synopsis longer than a single sentence? Is the story so convoluted that it doesn't make sense when written down on paper?

2. In an attempt to dodge further drama from people preaching political correctness, Paramount made it a point to not show a single shot of Benedict Cumberbatch's character All, who has been declared an embarrassment to transgender people. We'd rather believe that the film is playing on the idea that many models are sexually ambiguous, and why not have fun with that?
