The original Super Troopers movie from the Broken Lizard guys was partly a goofy movie about goofy cops, but it was also largely a goofy movie about smoking those good drugs and saying weird stuff about snozzberries to goofy cops. With a crowdfunded sequel on the way now, the filmmakers have decided to throw in a subtle shoutout to fans of both the first movie and marijuana cigarettes by announcing that Super Troopers 2 will be released on none other than April 20, 2018—a date known colloquially as “the big weed day.” This comes from Variety, which also notes that this will be a full 16 years since the first movie had its premiere.

It has now been officially announced. Super Troopers 2 has a release date of April 20th, 2018, and we have a sneak peek into what the highly anticipated sequel is going to be about. Rumblings of the release date appeared earlier this week when actor and Broken Lizard founding member Steve Lemme (Mac) revealed that Super Troopers 2 had an obvious release date on a Friday in the spring.

Super Troopers 2 will take place on the Border between the United States and Canada and will pit the boys up against a border dispute this time around. The official synopsis reads.

Fox Searchlight has set an April 20, 2018, release date for “Super Troopers 2” — 17 years after the original.
Jay Chandrasekhar is directing the comedy sequel, as he did on the original. Filmmaking team Broken Lizard raised $4.4 million in a 30-day crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in 2015 that saw more than 50,000 contributors. It was one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns for a movie along with the $5.7 million raised by fans for the “Veronica Mars” movie starring Kristen Bell.
Donation incentives for “Super Tropers 2” on the first day included a producer title for $10,000, a speaking actor role for $10,000, a trip to the ballpark with the main actors for $15,000, and the patrol car to be used in the filming for $35,000. “Super Troopers 2” met the initial goal of $2 million (set by Fox Searchlight) in 26 hours.
