The latest trailer for Popstar features an overrated piece of sh*t

A former boy band member does everything in his power to maintain his celebrity status when it becomes clear that his solo album is a failure in the mockumentary, POPSTAR: NEVER STOP NEVER STOPPING. Andy Samberg and the Lonely Island crew have seen some serious success with their SNL shorts and albums, but now they're carrying over their lampooning of modern pop music to the film medium! How's it looking? Well, I can tell you that this trailer does feature one overrated piece of shit!

Is it just me, or was that the WAR OF THE WORLDS siren that went off when they turned on the giant headlight? I'm actually a pretty mild fan of the Lonely Island crew, but I do love a good mockumentary. POPSTAR looks like it goes for a lot of the easy jokes, although I admittedly loved the proposal towards the end of the trailer! Here's hoping the film has more of that!

POPSTAR: NEVER STOP NEVER STOPPING hits theaters on June 3, 2016.

I would have thought the article was about Samberg, a wildly untalented piece of shit portraying another wildly untalented piece of shit. How very meta. Samberg's presence essentially guarantees that I would never watch this movie, even for free. I don't have many "box office poison" actors, but he would certainly be near the top of that list.

I'm actually really starting to look forward to this. One of my most anticipated comedies for this year (tho I can't really think of many straight mainstream comedies being released this year). But I loved MacGruber. Thought the director did an awesome job.

I'm hoping this will be another Walk Hard, in terms of quality (never understood why that movie did so poorly). And in the way Walk Hard's music was funny/satirical, but also really good and sounded like a song from that specific
I'm actually really starting to look forward to this. One of my most anticipated comedies for this year (tho I can't really think of many straight mainstream comedies being released this year). But I loved MacGruber. Thought the director did an awesome job.

I'm hoping this will be another Walk Hard, in terms of quality (never understood why that movie did so poorly). And in the way Walk Hard's music was funny/satirical, but also really good and sounded like a song from that specific generation, it sounds like this might do the same for current pop music. "Mona Lisa, ur the original basic bitch," that's hilarious. It's hard to write a mocking song that sounds like something you'd Hear on the radio to most listeners, that carries the same production quality, and merits, of similar songs (everybody likes a couple pop songs - lady gaga? Some black eyed peas songs are fun), all while satirizing the artist and fans. I bet, or hope, these songs could've been sold to a Beiber type and they wouldn't get the joke Bc it's so well done.

I also liked the line about that's a 3rd of the way to Mars, just wish they didn't have to bust the joke open with Meadows explaination.

There's a lot of ripe material for this movie to cover - the obvious Beiber documentary, but also his paparazzi type behavior (which there are hundreds of stars to mine stories from), and then just Kanye West/Taylor Swift/Kim Kardashian and all the reality tv stuff - the crazy shit these musicians get into. And it's rated R, with Judd Apatow so I don't think it'll be a Zookeeper type of mainstream comedy. DEf gonna be dick and poop jokes but im confident it'll be a lot more than that and not a watered down comedy.

Really, with all the talent involved, and all the celebrities they have to mock, this should be pretty simple to at least make a solid comedy. I think the biggest problem they could do would be to only make Samberg's character a Beiber clone. They need include the crazy shit that Kanye and others in the world do to his character. I keep going back to Kanye, and they'll have to do more than just him, but have him take an award away from someone onstage, announce he's going to run for president, make a terrible clothing line, marry a reality star. Not all that, but one or 2 things from each similar celebrity.

That's another thing I really liked ab Walk Hard, and perhaps a reason it didn't do well (marketing), the trailers made it seem like it was only making fun of J Cash, but it really made fun of every popular musician from the 50's to the rap songs remixed with older hits like Gold Digger (well it didn't really make fun of the musicians so much as the music industry and music biopics. It perfectly mocked decades of American music culture. Hopefully this film will follow that lead, despite the fact that I assume it's just this generation.

And again like Walk Hard, JCR always acted pretty serious. He was sincere. Hopefully they can find that for Samburg instead of just being a shit.

Anyway, didn't think I'd have so much to say about this. Hope it works. Wish them the best.
