‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’ Poster Teases a Seth Rogen and Chloe Moretz ShowdownBritt Hayes |
A couple of new parents facing off with a house full of frat bros is a pretty funny idea (and made for a pretty funny movie), but there’s something even more inherently hilarious about the notion of a grown man and his wife battling it out with sorority sisters. That seems like a fairly easy sequel concept for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, but it’s hard not to laugh at Seth Rogen and Chloe Moretz violently glaring at each other in this new poster.
Chloe Moretz has built a career on being the young woman hilariously skilled in squaring off with grown men, from taking down violent criminals as Hit Girl in Kick-Ass to her recurring role on 30 Rock as Alec Baldwin’s arch-nemesis. Her next target is Seth Rogen, but she won’t be alone this time, as Moretz has an entire squad of sorority sisters to help her ruin the lives of Rogen’s Mac and his wife, Kelly (Rose Byrne). The married couple will also have a bit of help from their former neighbor and ex-frat bro Teddy, played by Zac Efron.
Here’s the new poster:
And here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising hits theaters on May 20.
