‘Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping’ Review

7 June 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows, Maya Rudolph, Joan Cusack, Imogen Poots, Chris Redd, James Buckley, Edgar Blackmon | Written by Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer | Directed by Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone

What do you get if you take the outrageous gross-out comedy of producer Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Superbad, Knocked Up) and the trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, collectively known as comedy pop songsters The Lonely Island? Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping  – a faux-documentary which is (and this may sound bombastic) the This is Spinal Tap for the Justin Bieber generation.

The story is the flimsiest of plots: the film goes behind the scenes as former The Style Boyz member (think New Edition meets Beastie Boys) turned solo artist singer/rapper Conner4Real (Samberg) faces a crisis of popularity after his sophomore album flops, leading his entire career into a unrecoverable talispin – leaving his fans, »

James Buckley, Paul Kaye and Steve Coogan are teaming up for Zapped, a new Dave series that blends wizards with workplace humour...

Zapped! is a new TV series – destined for UKTV’s Dave channel - that very much has our attention. Steve Coogan is executive producing, and James Buckley (Jay from The Inbetweeners), Paul Kaye (Dennis Pennis/Game of Thrones’ Thoros of Myr), Sharon Rooney (Rae from My Mad Fat Diary), Ken Collard and Louis Emerick are set to lead the cast. Coogan has lined up himself for a special guest appearance, too.

Lonely Island Goes Wild in Popstar Trailer #2

18 May 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just over a year ago, Universal Pictures announced that production had gotten under way on a secret project from the comedic trio known as The Lonely Island, which is comprised of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer. Very little was known about the project at the time, but it was eventually revealed to be a parody of the pop music world entitled Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, which is set for release on June 3. Back in March, we got our first look at this comedy with the red band trailer, but now we have the second trailer that is suitable for all ages.

Universal Pictures' Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping 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. »
