The comedy reunites Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson as Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald, two ridiculously good-looking models, who are now older and no longer in demand. The film also features Will Ferrell, Penélope Cruz and Kristen Wiig.

But the trailer’s launch wasn't without controversy, thanks to Benedict Cumberbatch’s character. Cumberbatch plays an androgynous model named Ali in the film, but some LGBT activists have labelled the portrayal ‘a 'cartoonish mockery' of transgender, androgyne and non-binary individuals’.

A online petition called for the film to be boycotted and it has so far received nearly 15,000 signatures. ‘Cumberbatch’s character is clearly portrayed as an over-the-top, cartoonish mockery of androgyne/trans/non-binary individuals,’ the petition reads. ‘This is the modern equivalent of using blackface to represent a minority.’
