It's here, guys, it's here; the very first teaser trailer for Super Troopers 2, which is also the first sequel I've been stoked about since Home Alone 2 and D2: The Mighty Ducks... and you can bet your asses that the boys are as raunchy as ever.
In case you didn't realize what was going on at the very beginning of that trailer, yep, it involved the finest officers that the Vermont Highway Patrol has — Farva, Thorny, Mac, and Foster — talking about shaving the Rabbit's balls. See, like I said above, the boys come in raunchier than ever.
And, in case you didn't hear the news about the release date, pack your pipes and get ready to laugh your asses off, because Super Troopers 2 hits theaters on April 20th, otherwise known as the biggest stoner holiday known to man.
The trailer, which is subtitled “Shave the Date”, doesn't reveal too much other than some ball-shaving threatening, but with the entire cast back, we imagine the highly-anticipated comedy will deliver on the hype.
Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar — just as the original Super Troopers was — he and his Broken Lizard filmmaking/comedy team turned to crowdfunding website Indiegogo back in 2015 in hopes of raising enough cash to make a sequel. The result? More than 50,000 contributors, leading to $4.4 million in 30 days, which, to this day, is still one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns for a movie ever.
Outside of the usual clues, like the reuniting of the cast, all we know about Super Troopers 2 is what actor Paul Soter (who played Jeff Foster in the original flick) had to tell to Movieweb all the way back in 2009 about the synopsis via Esquire:
The big picture is that we are on the Canadian Border. And in reality, what has happened is that the government has found places where the markers were off, or wrong. And there are these areas of land that were thought to be Canada, but are actually part of the U.S. We are enlisted to patrol this area that was always thought to be Canadian soil. But no, it is actually the United States. We are enlisted because they have to send someone there to help make it part of the U.S. territory now. We get recruited to be the highway patrolmen there. And we are surrounded by all of these Canadian people that aren't happy about this. We essentially have to impose U.S. law on a bunch of Canadians that aren't at all happy about it.
Eight years has since passed, so is the plot still the same or are there other things we should expect as an audience? We'll find out in 235 "short" days... and we can't wait for it!
