Like Popstar’s penis joke, let’s keep this frank.
You like free stuff. We know it. We throw a lot of giveaways around here, especially through our Twitter account, so we know you’re just starting a bunch of social media accounts to enter as many online contests as you can. Whatever: You’ll enter this contest because you don’t care what you’re winning as long as it’s free. We get it: free stuff is free, free-ness is entelechial, the world is a vampire, nothing matters.
So hey, here’s something free. We’ve got Blu-Ray copies of Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping to give to three of you shameless mozzarella sticks. Just kidding—the movie’s pretty good. Our critic Andy Crump described:
As a wacky summertime popsicle, you can do worse than Popstar, with its brazen profanity, TMZ mockeries, fantastically shallow characters and escalating ridiculousness. (There’s a truly incredibly dick joke in here that hinges on having an actual dick out on display. Points for evening the nudity disparity between men and women.) But while the film leaves no stone unturned, it never uncovers anything The Lonely Island hasn’t already uncovered. After all, who knew popular music is hollow and soulless pap churned out to make corporations fistfuls of money.
So, to celebrate the release of Popstar onto Blu-Ray and VOD, we’ve partnered with Universal for this exclusive giveaway.
On the Blu-Ray, three (3) winners will find:
- 45 Minutes of Deleted Scenes
- Gag Reel
- Interview Outtakes
- Bonus Footage
- 6 Music Videos
- How to Donkey Roll
- Big Boy Freestyle
- Shooting Hoops
- Turn Up the Beef
- Fun at CMZ!
I understand like half of those things!
Winning, unlike never stopping never stopping, is easy. All you have to do is:
1. Follow @pastemovies on Twitter if you haven’t already;
2. Tweet @pastemovies and tell us we’re pretty;
3. Include the hashtag #Popstar.
And in the spirit of maybe someday stopping but never stopping never stopping for the moment, we’ll pick a winner very soon!
Note: Winner must be a U.S. resident.
Now, some words from the studio:
Andy Samberg stars in this hilarious comedy as a former boy-band member trying desperately to salvage his failing solo career, coming to Digital HD on August 16, 2016, On Demand on August 30, 2016, and Blu-ray and DVD on September 13, 2016, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
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-directed 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.
