Dust off your Le Tigre because Derek Zoolander is back, back, back. Should you have missed the news thus far, Zoolander 2 is happening, once again directed by and starring Ben Stiller as the cerebrally-challenged male model. You won't learn any potential plot details from this first teaser trailer, but you will hear someone that sounds a lot like Stephen Hawking putting the catwalk king into a cosmic context.

Of course, it's been a few years since Derek Zoolander was busy foiling Mugatu's foul schemes, dominating the fashion scene and advertising Aveda ("the essence of wetness") as a merman. Times have changed, his stock has fallen but he's not less blinderingly lacking in self-awareness. Or dim. "Two Hundred Lander?" he gasps of the trailer's 2oolander logo. "No, Derek, it's just a pun," replies kinda-Hawking.

Zoolander 2 is set roughly 14 years after the original, and finds Derek and best pal Hansel (Owen Wilson) trying to deal with a world that has seemingly moved on past them. Their lives have changed – not always for the better – and they’re not best pleased.

Stiller is once again directing, working from a script by Justin Theroux. The film has been shooting in Rome and features the return of Wilson, Christine Taylor and Will Ferrell’s Mugatu, while also introducing characters played by Kristen Wiig and Penelope Cruz, with Cyrus Arnold as Derek Junior. Zoolander 2 is targeting a February 12, 2016 release.
