Universal has released a new trailer for The Lonely Island's new comedy Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. The film stars Andy Samberg as Conner4Real, a fake, talentless, dumbass loser who is an accidentally famous popstar in the vein of Justin Bieber as he has to come to terms with failure for the first time and his downward spiraling popularity.
The film is meant to be a spoof on the bleak sadness of the state of today's mainstream music and looks absolutely hilarious! I'm hoping The Lonely Island crew (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone) knock this movie out of the park!
Check out the new trailer below and then let us know what you think about the new film below in the comments section, thanks!
Here's the official synopsis:
"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: Never Stop Never Stopping is set to hit theaters on June 3rd.
