If Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne’s well-to-do parents had their work cut out for them in Nicholas Stoller’s riotous comedy, Neighbors, then the couple won’t be too keen to hear that there’s a sorority on the rise.
Specifically, one spearheaded by Chloe Grace Moretz in this year’s hotly-anticipated sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. Releasing by way of Point Grey Pictures and Universal, today heralds the arrival of a new poster for Stoller’s follow-up, which finds Rogen, Byrne and Moretz’s hard-partying Shelby on opposite sides of the white picket fence.
Forced to put old differences aside, in their fit of desperation, Mac (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) turn to Teddy (a largelry shirtless Zac Efron) for help. He is, for lack of a better term, their ace in the hole, and it’s left to Efron to infiltrate the Kappas’ home – a strategy that, yes, doesn’t exactly go according to plan.
Setting out to prove that the 2014 sleeper hit wasn’t a one-trick pony, Point Grey Pictures and Universal will launch Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising – starting a turf war in the process – into theaters on May 20. Lisa Kudrow and Billy Eichner also star.
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.
