Zoolander 2 Cast Show Up To New York Premiere In Full Character as Zoolander, Hansel, Valentina and Mugatu

Ben Stiller and the rest of the stars of Zoolander 2, showed up to the films New York premiere on Tuesday night in full character. Turning the carpet into a makeshift runway, the 50 year old actor strutted along as Derek Zoolander with his trademark look “Blue Steel”, along with Own Wilson as Hansel, Penélope Cruz as Melanie Valentina and Will Ferrell as Jacobim Mugatu.

Zoolander 2 is the sequel to the 2001 satirical comedy film Zoolander, which was also co-written and directed by Ben Stiller. Reprising his role as the dim-witted male model Derek Zoolander, Stiller appears to have brought the over the top comedy into an era, now fifteen years later, that is ready to welcome it with open arms.

Taking to the purple carpet at the Lincoln Center in New York City, the characters showed off their big looks in a opening that also doubled as a fashion show of sorts. The sexy Cruz wore an all black outfit, that included shorts and thigh high boots. Joining her was funny man Ferrell in an Asain-esque blue get up, topped off with his Mugatu wigg and gotee.

So far the film has received very low marks, with Rotten Tomatoes giving it a rating of 29% and IMDb scoring it 5.7/10. The original Zoolander faired well at the box office fifteen years ago, pulling in $60 million on the films $28 million dollar budget.

In a time when people are much more self absorbed and engaging in social media around the clock, there could still be a decent pay day for Stiller and his band of fashion stars.

Zoolander 2 opens in theaters February 12th, 2016.
