Andy Samberg flops big time in the latest trailer for The Lonely Island’s Popstar — watch

Now that we’re just a few weeks away from the release of Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, the film’s push is starting to match the fictionalized cultural saturation of its oblivious main character, Andy Samberg’s Conner4Real.

Universal Pictures has released a new full-length trailer for the satirical documentary, which follows Conner’s rebranding in the wake of a failed new record — a record with distinctly WWII-era cover art aesthetics, mind you. The preview offers a fresh look at how the former boy-bander will attempt to recapture the spotlight, from gimmicky costumes to magic tricks.

But let’s be honest. Popstar is a playground for The Lonely Island to get weird with studio money and gather as many friends together as they can. Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows, Imogen Poots, and a holographic Adam Levine all make appearances in the new trailer. Plus, Seal shows up to battle wolves. How can you hate a movie in which Seal is involved? Okay, Batman Forever is a strong counterpoint here, but still — wolves!

Shaping up to be a spot-on riff of brand-extending popstar “documentaries,” Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping will be released on June 3rd. Check out the latest trailer up top.
