Is “Zoolander” vintage like a 1950s Chanel suit or derelict like a paisley polyester shirt? Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson split the difference Tuesday in a runway walk-off at Paris Fashion Week that confirmed long-rumored plans of a sequel to the 2001 comedy classic, according to Vogue.

Dim-witted models Derek Zoolander and Hansel, aka Stiller and Wilson, faced off to the dulcet tones of Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me?” during a Valentino show. The “Zoolander 2” stars, who also photobombed icy Vogue editor Anna Wintour backstage, will rejoin Will Ferrell and Christine Taylor onscreen when the film premieres February 2016.

Pixar’s upcoming film “Inside Out” throws a few jabs at San Francisco, but we’ll let it slide — the company is a Bay Area native, after all (Emeryville, represent!).

A trailer released Tuesday shows the protagonists, who represent a San Francisco girl’s emotions, commenting on our cuisine and … bears.

“Congratulations, San Francisco, you’ve ruined pizza,” one character moans after a pierced, dyed and tattooed cashier waves a broccoli-studded slice at a crunchy joint called Yeast of Eden. Later, a character claims there are “no bears in San Francisco,” which is amended to include one “really hairy guy,” perhaps strolling in the Castro.

A new ad for “San Andreas,” which was filmed in The City last summer, throws more than a jab. The shake ’em up flick sends a tsunami barreling toward the Golden Gate Bridge.

C’mon, “San Andreas” — “The Abyss” threw a tsunami at the International Orange landmark 25 years ago. At least a giant radioactive octopus (“It Came From Beneath the Sea,” 1953) would have had some retro charm.


A judge awarded Marvin Gaye’s heirs $7.4 million Tuesday, ruling that Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams ripped off the his song “Got to Give it Up” for 2013’s “Blurred Lines.” … Ovation TV’s show “American Canvas” debuts tonight with a visit to San Francisco that includes the BANDALOOP dance troupe, Musée Mécanique and more.
