The new trailer for Paramount Pictures’ “ZOOLANDER 2” has broken the record to become the most successful comedy trailer launch of all time. The trailer, which debuted online on November 18 and offers fans a sneak peek at the highly anticipated sequel to 2001’s “ZOOLANDER,” reached 52.2 million views in its first week of release!
The sequel, starring Ben Stiller as the title character, will arrive in theaters 15 years after the original film. The new trailer showed a first glimpse showed old characters (like Will Ferrell’s fashionably evil Mugatu) and new (Penelope Cruz as secret agent Valentina). It also features a new model, an androgynous character played by Benedict Cumberbatch. I'd pay JUST to see that!!
