Seth Rogen and Zac Efron Team Up in First Trailer For ‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’

Neighbors 2

One of the surprise hits of the 2014 summer movie season, Neighbors racked up over $270 million worldwide on a budget under $20 million. So, Universal quickly went ahead and greenlit a follow-up with Nicholas Stoller back in the director’s chair, and Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, and more returning. Today we now have the first trailer for the sequel, which is titled Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.

This time around, as hinted by the title, Rogen and Byrne are up against a sorority house led by Chloë Grace Moretz‘s character. With more or less the same premise, we’re curious if Neighbors can break the comedy sequel streak of disappointments, but there’s not an abundance of funny moments in the Kanye West-backed trailer. Also starring Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz, Carla Gallo, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kiersey Clemons, Beanie Feldstein, Selena Gomez and Lisa Kudrow, check out the trailer, synopsis, and poster below.

Returning stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne are joined by Chloë Grace Moretz for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, the follow-up to 2014’s most popular original comedy. Nicholas Stoller again directs in a film that follows what happens when the will of parenthood goes against the bonds of sisterhood.

Now that Mac (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) have a second baby on the way, they are ready to make the final move into adulthood: the suburbs. But just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighborhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority even more out of control than Teddy (Efron) and his brothers ever dreamed of being.

Tired of their school’s sexist, restrictive system, the unorthodox ladies of Kappa Nu have decided to start a house where they can do whatever the hell they want. When Shelby (Moretz) and her sisters, Beth (Kiersey Clemons) and Nora (Beanie Feldstein), find the perfect place just off campus, they won’t let the fact that it’s located on a quiet street stand in their way of parties as epic as the guys throw.

Forced to turn to the one ex-neighbor with the skills to bring down the new Greeks next door, the Radners—alongside best friends Jimmy (Ike Barinholtz) and Paula (Carla Gallo)—bring in charismatic Teddy as their secret weapon. If he can infiltrate the sorority and charm his way through it, the thirtysomethings will shutter the Kappas’ home. But if they think that their neighbors are going down without a fight, they have severely underestimated the power of youthful ingenuity and straight-up crazy.
