The first trailer for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is here and it’s not entirely sure how to spell the word “sorority.” That said, director Nicholas Stoller and his writing team (Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Brendan O’Brien and Andrew J. Cohen) still know how to spell all the things that lead to big laughs – and “Zac Efron Abs.”
In the domestic trailer below, you’ll get a good idea of the sequel’s story. Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are still living in their house from the first film, but are looking to sell. Free from the reign of fraternity terror in the first movie, they appear ready to sell and move on. That is until a new sorority, seeking equality of parties, moves in next door and begins exerting their own Beastie Boys-given right to party.
In the international trailer, for Neighbours 2, we get a little bit more footage and additional party hijinks. It’s hard not to notice that both Chloe Moretz, who plays the leader of the frat, and Beanie Feldstein (who is Jonah Hill’s younger sister), who plays the one ejected from the car, look like they are going to get some of the film’s best laughs.
Neighbors 2 begins its fight for party equality on May 20th. Below you will find the official synopsis.
Returning stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne are joined by Chloë Grace Moretz forNeighbors 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.
