You only need to hear the full title of The Lonely Island’s movie to know it’s going to be spoof-tastic. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is a mockumentary about a former boy band member turned solo superstar. He has a massive entourage and an even bigger ego.
Played by Samberg, the pop sensation says things like “it takes a village to make me look dope” and “my fans and me, we’re in love and the arena is our bedroom…”
[Warning: if you don’t like strong language, this trailer probably isn’t for you…]
Alongside Samberg and his Lonely Island band-mates, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, Popstar features Sarah Silverman, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, and Will Arnett, along with cameos from Simon Cowell, Usher, and many more. Watch out for an appearance from Samberg’s wife Joanna Newsom in the film…and there’s also a man throwing a punch who looks suspiciously like Martin Sheen.
It looks hilarious — and we’re never going to stop never stopping being excited about this…
