Universal has released a hilarious NSFW red band trailer for Andy Samberg's Lonely Island movie Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. The trailer reveals Andy Samberg as Conner4Real, a super popular mainstream musician, in a film that's gonna be one insane hilarious spoof on the sad state of today's main stream music industry. The film will feature tons of celebrity cameos and is also produced by Judd Apatow. If the film is anywhere near as funny as The Lonely Island's digital shorts, expect this to become an instant comedy classic. Check out the trailer below and sound off in the comments with your thoughts.
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.
Popstar hits theaters on June 3rd.
