Red Band 'Super Troopers 2' Trailer Takes A Trip To Canada

The Super Troopers are back, and they're recycling jokes! After a long 17-year hiatus, the comedy troupe Broken Lizard have returned with a sequel to their most popular film. Now there's a brand new red band Super Troopers 2 trailer with all the pratfalls, dead bald eagles and culture-clash jokes you can stand!

Super Troopers was one of those cult comedies that came from seemingly nowhere. The film didn't have very big stars (except, of course, Brian Cox, the biggest star of all), and there seemed to be very little buzz surrounding the flick. Yet it became a sleeper hit, and its popularity grew even stronger once it hit home video. Fans wanted more – they wanted a Super Troopers 2, gosh darn it. And while Broken Lizard, the comedy troupe responsible for the film, went off and did other movies – Beer LeagueClub Dread – Super Troopers 2 remained an unrealized dream. Until now! A brand new red band Super Troopers 2 trailer is here, and you can watch it below.

Well...that was...something. Hey, I loved the original Super Troopers. It was one of those rare laugh-out-loud funny comedies – endlessly quotable and easy to revisit. But Super Troopers came out in 2001, which was a long time ago. What I'm saying is, I fear the time for a Super Troopers 2 has come and gone. There's actually some precedent for this reasoning: Dumb and Dumber To, the long-awaited Dumb and Dumber sequel, hit theaters after a long hiatus, and it was terrible. Any magic the original film had evaporated into thin air.

This trailer certainly doesn't give me much encouragement; the only joke here I even slightly smiled at was a moment where Rob Lowe shouts, "Great Tim Hortons' ghost!" Of course, Super Troopers 2 might prove the exception to the rule. Maybe the team will be able to rekindle what make the first film so damn funny, and even improve on it. Anything is possible. I guess. Here's the official Super Troopers 2 synopsis.

Everyone's favorite law enforcement team is back by popular demand with the long anticipated follow up to the cult comedy classic...Super Troopers. When an international border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the Super Troopers–Mac, Thorny, Foster, Rabbit, and Farva–are called in to set up a new Highway Patrol station in the disputed area. Unconventional police work follows, and the result is...Super Troopers 2.

Super Troopers 2, starring Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, Erik Stolhanske, Brian Cox, Rob Lowe and Lynda Carter, opens April 20, 2018.
