Did you love the first “Super Troopers” movie? Have you been waiting eagerly since 2001, when the Broken Lizard comedy troupe first said it would make a sequel?
Well your wait is almost over, thanks to one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns in filmmaking history. You can get a taste of what’s in store in the first official trailer of “Super Troopers 2” now on YouTube. “You can see the rest of the jokes on 4.20.2018 #ShavetheDate,” according to the YouTube teaser.
There might never have been a sequel without support from fans of the original movie, who helped raise more than $4.6 million on the Indiegogo crowdfunding site. That makes “Super Troopers 2” second only to “Veronica Mars” in movie crowdfunding, which raised $5.7 million in a 2013 Kickstarter campaign.
According to IMDb, the plot of the new movie involves a border dispute between the US and Canada, and a Highway Patrol station “in the disputed area.”
Let the hilarity begin.
