It’s Parenthood vs Sisterhood!
Universal Pictures has released the second trailer for it’s upcoming comedy Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. The film is a sequel to 2014’s surprise hit Neighbors which grossed over $270 million on a mere $18 million budget. Stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Ike Barinholtz, and Carla Gallo all reprise their role from the previous film.
Like the first one, Neighbors 2 essentially follows the same plot with Rogen and Byrne trying to get rid of their neighbors just that this time it is a sorority rather than a frat, also with Efron’s character on their side. While sequels to comedy films, especially the ones merely rehashing the plot pale in comparison to the original (Looking at you Hangover 2) , the trailer for Neighbors 2 promises to be much better than that.

Here’s the official plot synopsis:
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.
