Super Troopers 2, the upcoming crowdfunded sequel to the cult classic, now has a release date. April 20, 2018. Yes, 4/20. Should’ve guessed it.
The film is directed by Jay Chandrasekhar, who also helmed the first film as well as several other Broken Lizard titles and some television work.
So what does 420 really mean? Well, it’s a rather funny time to release a film, but it also shows some confidence in the film. April is quickly becoming a good time frame to start the blockbuster season, and April 20th is right around that busy timeframe with New Mutants the week the before, Rampage the same date, and Avengers: Infinity War dropping two weeks later. Now, these audiences aren’t all the same, but you have to imagine they expect to have some box office difficulty with the release date, so I believe that the studio must have some serious confidence in Super Troopers 2. I’m excited with this idea, and I have faith in Broken Lizard. I’ve only seen one film of theirs I didn’t like (Club Dread), so I can’t wait for that first trailer.
But what do you think? Is now the right time for Super Troopers 2? Are you excited for the upcoming sequel? Do you wish it had been called Super Troopers 2pers? Let me know/drop a comment below!
