Written by The Lonely Island, and directed by Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone (who also star), Andy Samberg leads the movie as Conner4Real, who is the subject of the mock-doc look at his life and the people around him. Here’s the official synopsis: 

Universal Pictures’ Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is headlined by musical digital-shorts superstars Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, collectively known as The Lonely Island. The comedy goes behind the scenes as singer/rapper Conner4Real (Samberg) faces a crisis of popularity after his sophomore album flops, leaving his fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when he’s no longer the dopest star of all. 

Co-starring Imogen Poots, Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows and Maya Rudolph, “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping” opens on June 3rd.
