Supercell's 'Squad Busters' Trailer Overflows With Celebs

Chris Hemsworth, Christina Ricci, Ken Jeong, Will Arnett and many, many more

Supercell's trailer for "Squad Busters," its first global game in five years, will make you laugh, count celeb sightings and love Nickelback. Ok, maybe not the latter, but you will have the band stuck in your head.

Uncommon and director Jody Hill created the 5-minute trailer below. It begins with Chris Hemsworth, Christina Ricci, Ken Jeong, Will Arnett and Auli'i Cravalho as characters from prior Supercell games who join forces to wake a man out of bed.

The squad follows this guy everywhere. They help him land a job he's not qualified for and even lend a hand, as it were, for his ... bathroom business. (A highlight for us was the squad's impassioned carpool karaoke of Nickelback's "How You Remind Me.")

When our group encounters another player's squad, we see Hollywood celebs pitted against social media stars Bella Poarch, Thoren Bradley, Gabriela Moura, ZHC ... and Dolph Lundgren (alas, not Old Spice's deepfake version.)

Keep an eye out for Dude With Sign—Seth Phillips—and his "I'm here to appeal to a younger audience" poster.

"It pretty much had to be Nickleback," Sam Walker, ECD at Uncommon, tells Muse.  "How You Remind Me" is a massive, massive song but you'll be hard pushed to find anyone who'll say they’re a fan. It's like everyone's guilty pleasure. And the idea of Will Arnett as Greg letting loose at the climax of the song was guaranteed of being a moment. And even though we had to sing it ourselves at full volume in the script presentation to convince everyone, it was worth it in the end. It's hard to imagine any other song now, to be honest."

Supercell | Life's More Fun When You SQUAD UP!

"To mark this launch, our team wanted to create a show-stopping moment, so it felt fitting to have Hollywood icons face off against social media stars in a fun way, showing that life really is more fun when you’re with a squad," says Ilkka Paananen, CEO of Supercell.

Are we having fun, yet? Indeed.
