Last week, we got the red band Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping trailer, and today we’ve got the green band. Created by The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone), the story “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.” We haven’t had a great music comedy since Walk Hard, but the Lonely Island has been dealing out small doses in their own way with their excellent music albums. A movie seems like the next natural step, and while this green band trailer doesn’t have as many laugh out loud moments as the red band, it’s still solid.
Check out the Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping green band trailer below. The film opens June 3rd, and also stars Sarah Silverman, Bill Hader, Joan Cusack, Tim Meadows, Imogen Poots, and Maya Rudolph.
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.
