The Lonely Island premiered their NSFW trailer today for their upcoming movie called Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Judging by the trailer, it looks like it has potential to be really funny but we’ll see how it is on June 3rd. The movie stars Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer (Jorma Taccone & Akiva Schaffer co-directed the movie), as well as Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows, Maya Rudolph, Will Forte, Will Arnett and loads of cameos. It’s like Spinal Tap mockumentary style and I’m looking forward to seeing them spoof the music industry and being a celebrity.
Universal Pictures’ Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is headlined by musical digital-shorts superstars Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, collectively known as The Lonely Island. The comedy goes behind the scenes as singer/rapper Conner4Real (Samberg) faces a crisis of popularity after his sophomore album flops, leaving his fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when he’s no longer the dopest star of all.
The latest comedy from blockbuster producer Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Superbad, Knocked Up) co-stars Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows and Maya Rudolph and many of the biggest names in comedy and music in cameo performances. Co-directed by Schaffer and Taccone and written by The Lonely Island trio, Popstar is also produced by Rodney Rothman (producer of Get Him to the Greek, Forgetting Sarah Marshall; co-writer of 22 Jump Street), as well as Samberg, Schaffer and Taccone.
