The new comedy from The Lonely Island and producer Judd Apatow is nearing release.

POPSTAR follows popstar Conner4Real and his identity crisis following the flop of his latest album. The film satirizes many aspects of pop culture, and looks like to be quite the hilarious entry in the musical parody genre. Granted, not everyone’s a fan of The Lonely Island’s particular brand of humor, and many may find Samberg’s character more grating than funny.

Check out the new trailer below!

And check out the new poster!

Finally, the folks over at Universal decided to give us a fake MTV “how-to” video from the popstar. 

Check that out below!

“Universal Pictures’ POPSTAR: NEVER STOP 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 STOPPING hits theaters on June 3, 2016.
