Last Week Tonight host John Oliver rails often enough against the HBO series being mistaken for journalism; it was only a matter of time the series itself would put the Spotlight on actual press. And so, to cap off a piece highlighting the plight of print journalists, Oliver recruited Vinyl star Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne and more for their very own Spotlight parody, Stoplight.

Rose Byrne may have started off in dramatic roles on the big and small screen, but with Nick Stoller’s Get Him to the Greek and Paul Feig’s Bridesmaids, the Australian actress quickly established her comedic voice. The first Neighbors gave Byrne her funniest role yet in Kelly, a character who refreshingly challenged stereotypes of wives and mothers in major comedies. And in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, Byrne reminds us once again why she should add more comedies to her resume.

More Comedies Should Be As Progressive About Feminism and Gay Relationships As ‘Neighbors 2'

Despite how much of a refreshing surprise the first ‘Neighbors’ was, I’ll admit I wasn’t particularly looking forward to the sequel, which looked dispensable and derivative. The poster and trailer for ‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’ made it clear that Nick Stoller’s sequel to the 2014 Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne comedy was simply replicating the original premise and gender-swapping it to raise the stakes. It seemed like the expected set-up for a movie to stereotype and villainize young women, ridicule and dumb them down for laughs, and subject them to dick jokes. But it turns out ‘Neighbors 2' is a more pleasant surprise than the first movie. Not only is it one of the best and funniest comedy sequels, but the most feminist, self-aware and gay-inclusive mainstream comedy of the year, if not ever.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Clip Lets Rose Byrne Explain This Whole Apocalypse Thing

Rose Byrne's Moira MacTaggert has some 'splainin' to do. No, literally. She has an explanation she would like to share with you in the latest clip from X-Men: Apocalypse. Not nearly as clever as last week's viral video featuring narration from George Takei, the new clip features Byrne describing Oscar Isaac's big bad and what makes him so big and bad.

‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’ Poster Teases a Seth Rogen and Chloe Moretz Showdown

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.

The Meddler received some pretty positive reviews when it premiered at TIFF last year, promising a charming and poignant new film from Lorene Scafaria, the filmmaker behind the flawed Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. The trailer for her latest effort looks far more interesting, with Susan Sarandon as a persistent mother and recent widow who struggles to bond with her screenwriter daughter, played by Rose Byrne.

As the sneak peek above suggests, we’ll have the first full, official trailer for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising tomorrow, but until then, enjoy 15 seconds of footage from the upcoming sequel to the 2014 comedy hit starring Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. This time around, the pleasant couple next door are besieged by a house full of sorority sisters led by Chloe Moretz, who appears only briefly in the trailer, but seems to have been perfectly cast as yet another cold and calculating antagonist.
