It’s been a long road to Super Trooperville. The original Super Troopers film was released back in 2001, and while it received mostly negative reviews from critics, it attracted a cult-like following and made over $23 million at the box office against a $1.2 million budget.
And for years, fans of the original film begged the Broken Lizard team for a sequel. It looked like it was never going to happen, but last year, the comedy group surprised their fans by announcing their Indiegogo campaign to raise money for a sequel. They raised $4.4 million from their fans, which was two million more than they originally asked for.
Filming kicked off back in September of last year, and now Broken Lizard co-founder Steve Lemme has revealed the release date for Super Troopers 2 will be April 20, 2018…also known as 4/20.
In an interview with Seven Days, Lemme announced that the movie has been “testing better than any movie we’ve tested,” he also basically revealed the release date.
“Here’s what I can tell you: It’s springtime and there’s a very obvious date, which happens to fall on a Friday this year.”
And that obvious date is April 20, 2018. Mark your calendars now and get ready to laugh yo’ ass off.
