‘Zoolander 2’ Set For Feb. 2016 Release; Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson Walk at Paris Fashion Week

International fashion superstars Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) announced the release date for “Zoolander 2” by walking the Valentino runway at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday. The long-anticipated sequel will hit theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.

The really, really, ridiculously good-looking pair displayed their best Blue Steel during the Valentino Fashion Show finale at Espace Ephemere Tuileries in Paris, France, and got some face time with Vogue editor Anna Wintour backstage. Watch their walk-off below:

The sequel is written by Stiller and Justin Theroux — who last teamed on “Tropic Thunder” — with Stiller set to direct. The 2001 original grossed $60 million worldwide on a budget of $28 million, and has since become ingrained in pop culture thanks to Stiller’s memorable poses and self-aggrandizing quotes.

Penelope Cruz is the first new star to sign on for the sequel, with Will Ferrell expected to reprise his role as Mugatu.

  1. Despite the fact that Owen is starting to look more like Dave Mustaine from Megadeth, he makes me laugh just looking at him. Although I do not hold out much hope for sequels, I am more than willing to catch this in the theater…just so long as they don’t premiere the film in a building only big enough for ants. The theater should be at least three times bigger than that.
