Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping | First Look


Connor4Real is at the top of the game, a music artist loved by everyone…thanks to the efforts of his 32 person entourage!

The Lonely Island comedy group is made up of three friends, Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone. Their rise to fame started when they were hired to write for Saturday Night Live with Andy also performing on the show.

You may have heard of some of their comedy music videos of which nearly all of them have gone viral. Their hits include, “Dick in a Box”, “Jizz in My Pants” and “I’m on a Boat”.

Now comes their second feature film entitled, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. The story of a rapper known as Connor4Real whose career suddenly nose-dives when his latest album fails to sell and he’s forced to reunite with his old boy band.

 

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.
