‘Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping’ announced for Blu-ray, DVD

Universal Picture Home Entertainment has announced that Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping will be released to Digital HD on August 16th, On Demand on August 30th, and Blu-ray and DVD on September 13th.

Andy Samberg stars in this hilarious comedy as a former boy-band member trying desperately to salvage his failing solo career. This side-splitting comedy goes behind the scenes as music sensation Conner4Real (Samberg) finds his popularity plummeting after a disastrous album release, leaving his fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when he’s no longer the dopest star of all. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping on Blu-ray and DVD comes with over an hour of outrageous bonus features, including deleted scenes, a gag reel, celebrity interview outtakes and more!

Andy Samberg is Conner4Real, the breakout star of a popular but disbanded hip-hop group, whose life and career go off the rails just as he launches a highly publicized solo tour. Written by “Lonely Island” co-founders and SNL alums Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, and co-driected by Schaffer and Taccone, this razor-sharp, music-filled sendup of pop celebrity chronicles the exploits of the lovably egotistical singer-rapper (and his 32-person entourage) as he attempts to win back the hearts of his once-adoring fans.

Comedy mastermind Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) produced the film along with Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, the comedy collective known as The Lonely Island (“I’m on a Boat,” “Lazy Sunday”), who also wrote and star in the film. They are joined in the cast by a who’s who of comedy superstars, including Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows, Maya Rudolph, Joan Cusack, Imogen Poots, Chris Redd, Bill Hader, Kevin Nealon and Will Arnett.

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping delivers laugh-out-loud cameos from such music-world VIPs as Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams, Carrie Underwood, DJ Khaleed, Seal, P!nk, Nas, Usher, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Ringo Starr, Simon Cowell, Questlove, Mariah Carey, RZA, T.I., and “Weird Al” Yankovic.
