It has been 15 long years since Derek, Hansel and the nefarious Mugatu turned the world of high fashion upside down with the discovery that where goest thou runway model, so too goes an assassin.
Paramount Home Media announced this week that their triumph return will be on May 24 when they reunite in Zoolander No. 2: The Magnum Edition. Consumers will have the choice between a stand-alone DVD edition or a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack.
The ARR works out to 102 days and domestic box office receipts totaled $28.8 million.
As we pick up the action some 15 years later, poor Matilda has succumbed to a horrible accident, little Derek, Jr. (well, no so little) is in an orphanage and Derek is out of the “business.” So it is now up to Penelope Cruz as Valentina (think: “fashion police”) to whip Zoolander into shape, reunite him with Hansel and set things straight! Well, as straight as they can be in the fashion world.
It’s all great fun as Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell are given free hand to chew the scenery and are aided and abetted by cameos galore — from Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Macaulay Culkin to Kiefer Sutherland, MC Hammer and Billy Zane as Billy Zane. Even Christine Taylor (the now-dead Matilda) gets her moment as well. And, we discover who Derek Zoolander’s real father is … yes, another cameo.
Bonus goodies for Zoolander No. 2: The Magnum Edition and limited to the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack edition and come in the form of a quartet of featurettes — “The Zoolander Legacy,” “Go Big or Go Rome,” “Drake Sather: The Man Who Created Zoolander,” and “Youth Milk.”
