I can’t tell you how many times I’ve referred to the Lonely Island’s songs within my daily life. I’ve thought about “Lazy Sunday,” on practically every Sunday. “Mother Lover,” was sung ad naseum when ADORE debuted at Sundance. “Dick in a Box,” constantly plays in my head during life’s quiet moments. I could go on and on, but y’all know what I’m talking about because you’re in this same spot with me. Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer know what’s up, how to create a catchy pop ditty and how to make it funny. This is why I’m eagerly awaiting their newly titled feature film POPSTAR: NEVER STOP STOPPING.
And they’ve now debuted the film’s poster:
Ooh! Sparkly pizzazz!
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Co-directed by Schaffer and Taccone and written by The Lonely Island trio, it co-stars Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows and Maya Rudolph and many of the biggest names in comedy and music in cameo performances.
POPSTAR: NEVER STOP STOPPING opens on June 3, 2016.
