Several months ago, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson stormed Paris Fashion Week to announce the sequel to their hit comedy Zoolander. Now, it's time to get your best blue steel face on for the first trailer for the film has released. However, be sure not to try too hard because it seems as though the world's most beautiful people are in danger.

When Zoolander released initially, back in 2001, it opened to a lukewarm reception and a tepid box office gross of $60 million. However, that wasn't going to stop Derek Zoolander and his BFF Hansel, who, following the film's home entertainment release, went on to get a cult following - thus, spawning them a sequel 14 years later. Honestly, as terms of filmmaking and if I were to be critical, the original was not a very good film. Yet, even I can't deny that there's just something about Zoolander that makes it so entertaining and such a guilty pleasure. Let's not forget the iconic looks too.

This evening, Paramount Pictures have debuted the first, full-length trailer for the forthcoming sequel and it'll bring a smile to your face, that's for sure. It seems as though Derek and Hansel just aren't the fashion stars or icons they used to be, down to the fact that they're just getting too old now. However, the pair aren't completely redundant just yet when their skills are called upon by newcomer Penelope Cruz's Interpol agent Montana Grosso to assist her in taking down a villain that sets out to kill the world's most beautiful people.

The film's reveal certainly looks promising and contains lots of good laughs too. Benedict Cumberbatch and Kristen Wiig are amongst the highlights, unrecognisable as their characters - the former a space alien, fashion star named All and the latter, a fashion designer named Alexanya Atoz. Will Ferrell is also making a return as Jacobim Mugata. Everything you loved about the original is back, in abundance, for a second outing.

With Ben Stiller at the helm, and returning as Derek Zoolander, alongside Owen Wilson as Hansel, joined by Will Ferrell, Kritsen Wiig, Penelope Cruz, Olivia Munn, Kanye West and Billy Zane, Zoolander 2 (or 2oolander, as it's referred to) opens on February 12th, 2016.
