Super Troopers is one of those beloved, cult comedies that people can quote over and over. The movie came out 17 years ago (wow, that sure makes me feel old) and still to this day is one of my favorite comedies. Broken Lizard, the comedy troupe behind the aforementioned title, Club Dread, Beerfest and Slammin’ Salmon, has wanted to make a Super Troopers 2 for years — but it never quite got the traction needed to be made (a lot of that had to due to the project not getting studio support, i.e. funding).
So the Broken Lizard guys took it upon themselves and crowdfunded the film, seeking to raise $2 million to get this project started — in a show of support that surprised almost no one, the project raised $4.6 million raised by over 54,000 backers.
This being 2018 and the month of April, the long-awaited sequel is finally upon us. The Broken Lizard troupe has been making their rounds to promote the film, with Minnesota native Erik Stolhanske leading the charge through the state (fun fact: I worked on a short film with Stolhanske — he is an even better person than comedic actor). The movie has plenty of buzz.
So do you want to get out and see Super Troopers 2? How about for free? How about the Monday before the film is even released?
Well do I have news for you. Minnesota Connected is teaming up with Allied Marketing to give away free passes! All you have to do is follow the link below and show up early on Monday for the screening. This is a first come, first serve screening — in order to get in, you’ll need to show up well before the 7:30pm showtime — this screening will be packed. So, if you’re up for showing up early, you can see the movie four days before anyone else and for free. That’s four whole days to brag to co-workers!
