Shout! Factory has set a Nov. 12 home release date for a special steelbook Blu-ray disc edition of Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, a mockumentary from The Lonely Island about a pop phenomenon named Conner4Real (portrayed by Andy Samberg) who suddenly finds his popularity plummet.
The film was released theatrically in June 2016 by Universal Pictures but only generated about $9 million in domestic box office revenues, against a budget of $20 billion.
Fans who order the limited-edition steelbook of Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping directly from thelonelyisland.com or shoutfactory.com will received a limited-edition lithograph, available while supplies last. The steelbook edition carries a suggested list price of $29.97.
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment initially released the DVD and Blu-ray Disc in September 2016. On Aug. 27, UPHE is dropping the price of the regular Blu-ray to $9.99.
The cast in the Judd Apatow-produced film also includes Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer, Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader and Joan Cusack.
After a two-year, sold-out, worldwide tour, Conner4Real is the biggest name in music. Then, his second album flops, and Conner faces a crisis of popularity, leaving fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when Conner4Real is no longer the dopest star of all.
The comedy from blockbuster producer is loaded with cameos from the biggest names in comedy and music, including Justin Timberlake, Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams, Carrie Underwood, DJ Khaleed, Nas, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Ringo Starr, Simon Cowell, Questlove, Mariah Carey, and others.
