The first official trailer for The Lonely Island feature film “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping” is here, and it offers all of the ridiculous goodness one would expect. The new trailer also offers up a glimpse at several of the biggest cameos in the film.
The film stars Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, all members of The Lonely Island. The group first appeared on “Saturday Night Live” from 2005 to 2011. They shot to fame for their “Digital Shorts” music videos that included “Dick in a Box,” “Jizz in My Pants,” “Mother Lovers,” “Like a Boss,” and more. At the time, Samberg was a cast member and Taccone and Schaffer were writers for the show.
The official logline for the film is the following:
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.
The film opens June 3. The trailer can be viewed below.
