We weren’t really interested in a Baywatch movie until Dwayne Johnson got involved — then again, Johnson’s name can guarantee our interest in just about anything. The upcoming big screen version of the classic ’90s TV series is also set to star Zac Efron, and has recently begun its search for some leading ladies. Paramount has reportedly tested a handful of actresses, including one that has some experience working with The Rock already.

In 50 years, when some great journalist sits down to write the comprehensive biography of Zac Efron, the success of Neighbors will earn a special chapter. After all, that film was where Efron stopped being a fresh-faced, kid-friendly Disney star and started being a genuinely charming screen presence with some fairly serious comic chops. The future beyond that looks cloudy, so we don’t know if his decision to join the Baywatch movie will be viewed by future historians as a mistake or a surprisingly canny decision.

Do you even know EDM, bro? Let your good bro friend Zac Efron introduce you to the world of Electronic Dance Music, the only way a good bro friend can: with tank tops, hot ladies, flashing lights and a refusal to play Beyoncé (who does he think he is?). That’s what you need to know about the trailer for We Are Your Friends. Oh, you should also know that it was directed by Max Joseph, Nev Schulman’s silver-haired co-bro on MTV’s Catfish: The TV Show.

‘Neighbors 2’ Moves Into the 2016 Release Calendar

This is sort of a surprising-not-surprising news item. Universal is readying a sequel to last year’s phenomenally successful comedy ‘Neighbors,’ which starred Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as married thirtysomethings whose suburban bliss with their newborn baby is spoiled by the arrival of a rowdy frat house next door. The first movie didn’t exactly leave a bunch of loose ends for Rogen, Byrne, and Efron to continue into another film, and comedy sequels don’t have a great track record. But the first movie did gross over $268 million worldwide against an $18 million budget. Hence the not-surprising part: Universal’s announcement that they’re working on a ‘Neighbors 2,’ which they hope to have in theaters by next summer.

'Neighbors' was the surprise comedy of the year -- despite Seth Rogen and Zac Efron's involvement, it was presumed to be just another reboot of a classic film, and it surpassed all our expectations. What you may not know, though, is that director Nicholas Stoller shot even more cooky hijinks through two alternate openings to the film, and you can watch one of them right here.

Director Nicholas Stoller Takes A 'Neighbors' Victory Lap After Defeating Spider-Man

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.

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?
