Benedict Cumberbatch appears in the new 'Zoolander 2' trailer

Turns out those rumours about Benedict Cumberbatch appearing in 'Zoolander 2' weren't just rumours after all. The 'Sherlock' star appears in the latest trailer for the new movie as an androgynous model called All.

With long blonde hair, bleached eyebrows and cheekbones for days, All is introduced to an out-of-touch Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) backstage at fashion show. Cue a dubious joke about whether All is a man or a woman.

It's 15 years since Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson starred in the original 'Zoolander' film. They're reprising their roles as self-absorbed models for this new flick, joined by original cast members Christine Taylor, Billy Zane and Will Ferrell as brainwashing villain Mugatu. The plot of the latest movie centres around them being washed-up former A-Listers returning to the fashion industry to help stop a spree of celebrity assassinations.  

Penélope Cruz also appears in the film as a secret agent and Kristen Wiig stars as a plastic surgery addict. Plus, there's a whole load of cameos from the likes of Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus, Usher, and Justin Bieber. In fact, the trailer shows Biebs getting assassinated and taking a selfie while he dies.
