Zoolander 2

Rated: PG.

Directed By: Ben Stillar.

Starring: Ben Stillar, Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, and Will Ferrell.

Released: 12th February 2016.

Derek Zoolander is the dumbass, model that everybody loves. His pout is perfection and the teens of Instagram have been trying to imitate him for years.

Way back in 2001 when the original film was released it was silly, fun and quickly became a cult favorite. But did you ever lie awake at night wondering what Derek is up to now?

No me either.

So why on earth did they make this movie?

Game Of Thrones.

Created by: David Benioff and D.B Weiss.

Starring: Emilia Clarke, Kit Harrington and Peter Dinklage.

Episode Aired: 25th April 9pm on Sky Atlantic.

First airing in 2011, Game of Thrones is a Television Show drama based on the novels, A Song of Ice and Fire, written by George R.R. Martin. It tells the story of all of the noble houses of the fictional lands of Westeros and their fight for their claim to The Iron Throne.

The end of season 5 of Game of Thrones left us with many a cliff hanger:

  • Is Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) dead?
  • Is Arya (Maise Williams) permanently blind?
  • Is Dany (Emilia Clarke) ok?
  • Will Sansa (Sophie Turner) flay Ramsay (Iwan Rheon)?
  • Will Cersei (Leana Headey) seek Revenge or better yet how cruel will her revenge be?
  • Is Gendry (Joe Dempsie) still rowing?
  • What the fuck is going on with Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright)?

So many questions they can not possibly all be answered in this episode but my hopes are high and I’m praying to the Old Gods and The New for an answer.
