Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for the highly anticipated BAD NEIGHBOURS 2, which sees returning stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne back in action and they are joined by Chloë Grace Moretz for 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.
In BAD NEIGHBOURS, Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne played Mac and Kelly, new parents battling the neighbouring frat house, lead by freewheeling party boy Teddy (Zac Efron). This time a sorority has moved in next door and it is causing all sorts of problems. The law of sequels states that Mac, Kelly and Teddy must team up to tackle the new threat together. Chloë Grace Moretz and Selena Gomez lead the charge for the sorority sisters, while Dave Franco returns on the side of the dudes.
Here is the official synopsis for the movie: 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.
The trailer may not bring up a particularly original bunch of gags, but it certainly is entertaining and offers exactly what you would expect for the sequel.
