Benedict Cumberbatch features in hilarious first trailer for Zoolander 2

Cheekbones you could hang a coat on. A frame you could hang an expensive coat on. And that stare.

Given the aforementioned qualities, it might not be too surprising to see Benedict Cumberbatch pop up in Zoolander 2, Ben Stiller’s latest sendup of the male model industry – though after watching the first trailer you may begin to believe the British star will steal the whole show entirely. 

Rocking up as a rather confused and wonderfully odd rival for Stiller and Owen Wilson’s catwalk veterans, Cumberbatch is joined by a raft of other big stars including Kristen Wigg, Penelope Cruz, Justin Bieber, and Will Ferrell, returning as the dastardly Mugatu.

Check out the new trailer below and look forward to its spring/summer release.

Zoolander 2 hits cinemas from 12 February
