Let's call this a victory lap for Nicholas Stoller. And, to be honest, Stoller deserves a victory lap after his movie, 'Neighbors,' surprisingly finished number one at the box office this past weekend (grossing over $61 million domestically to date) ousting 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' from the top spot. And, for Stoller, this marks the first time he's directed a number one film: His previous efforts -- 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall,' "Get Him to the Greek,' and 'The Five-Year Engagement' -- all fell short. And, for Stoller, he knew he had a hit movie when Universal stopped putting a limit on his daily per diem. Nicholas Stoller is officially a big shot.
Stoller called this past Thursday afternoon to discuss the success of 'Neighbors' (a movie, if you somehow don't know, about Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne's quiet neighborhood being turned upside down by Zac Efron and Dave Franco's noisy fraternity) and, boy, nothing can put someone in a good mood like having an unexpected number one movie. Ahead, Stoller takes a 'Neighbors' victory lap; explains why he wasn't worried about naming his movie after an ill-fated John Belushi movie; and, as a bonus. tells us exactly where in the movie we can see Christopher Mintz-Plasse's penis.
This weekend 'Neighbors' crushed it at the box office as it made nearly fifty million dollars and is on track to make a whole lot more. This success has raised Zac Efron's profile, which means he's now talking to Marvel. Could he be our 'Doctor Strange?'
Here's something you've probably never considered: what would it be like if 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon and 'Neighbors' co-stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron were actually all teenage girls who had their very own Teen Nick show called 'Ew!' which was all about them screaming "Ew!" at various things and people? It's a little weird, right?
This week, a new very serious drama about Seth Rogen (‘You, Me and Dupree’) living next to a fraternity house opens in theaters across the United States. The title of this movie is ‘Neighbors.’ Is this very serious drama about Seth Rogen living next to a fraternity so far the funniest movie of 2014? As a service for some people who read the Internet, we answer every question that you could possibly have about ‘Neighbors.’
It's hell getting old. You're overworked, underpaid, get grey hairs, everything hurts, there's barely time for sex, you fall asleep on the couch watching 'Game of Thrones' and, unless you're George Clooney, you're just not cool anymore. You either hike up your pants and accept it, or you wage all out war. It's the latter that highlights the uproarious Seth Rogen and Zac Efron comedy 'Neighbors,' which just might be the funniest American movie since ... well, since Seth Rogen's last movie.
Whenever a big movie comes out, the stars make the press rounds, appear on talk shows and generally do everything in their power make sure you know the name of their film and the day it is hitting theaters. Although this often involves hearing the same canned answers time and time again, it sometimes means you get to see some of your favorite actors pop up in unexpected places. In this case, 'Neighbors' stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron teamed up with the cast of 'Workaholics,' delivering more of the hit Comedy Central show and giving them a chance to plug their upcoming movie.
'Neighbors,' the new comedy starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, doesn't hit theaters until May 9, but early buzz is already pegging this film as one of the funniest of the year, and that has not changed one bit with the arrival of the new 'Neighbors' red band trailer.
'Neighbors' had its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival this past week the response was mostly positive (you can read our review here). After all, it feels like it's hard to go wrong with R-rated, Seth Rogen-led comedies these days. A new clip from the film has arrived online, giving us a taste of the laughs the finished film contains.
When I got a chance to sit down with Zac Efron, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen on the set of their upcoming R-rated comedy, 'Neighbors,' Efron was easily the most amped to be there. Perhaps he worried that he would be stuck for much of his career playing in romantic comedies, and similar Disney-fied films (more women break out of the child star shackles than teen heartthrobs). For him it might very well change everything.
Where for Rogen and Goldberg, who recently finished ‘This Is the End’ at the time of our interview, the movie was a transition point as Rogen is now getting old enough to play a responsible adult and parent. And though he produced ‘Neighbors’ with Goldberg, he definitely maintains his hand in the process.
Read on for my interview with Zac Efron, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg on the set of 'Neighbors.'
Zac Efron and breakout stars Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller star as three buddies navigating the New York dating scene in 'That Awkward Moment,' the R-rated, raunchy directorial debut of Tom Gormican. Watch as we sit down with this trio of actors to discuss the film, their bro-bonding on set, and more!
