Movie Review – Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016)

25 May 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising 2016.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller.

Starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Chloe Grace Moretz, Dave Franco, Kiersey Clemons, Beanie Feldstein, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Selena Gomez, Carla Gallo and Lisa Kudrow.

Synopsis:

When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is a blindsiding comedy sequel, not just because it is surprisingly a much more enjoyable film than its predecessor from 2014, but for the fact that its crowded team of five different writers actually managed to tell a follow-up story layered with social commentary on hot topics such as feminism, equality and double standards. Of course, all of this is done featuring loads of juvenile shenanigans that are both to be expected. and downright fun to watch. »

Wamg Talks ‘Oiled Meats’ With Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne – Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

23 May 2016 12:50 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Returning stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne have returned to theaters with Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, the follow-up to 2014’s most popular original comedy. Recently, Wamg was invited to the films press day on the Universal Studios Back Lot in sunny California. While there, members of various outlets got to grill the stars in a BBQ, college party type setting… so, naturally the subject of Efron getting greased up with meat came up. For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, please see the clip below for reference.

For those of you returning for the second time, can you talk about what it was like to work as a team as opposed to adversaries… and Rose, what was it rubbing Zac? You’ve gotta tell us…

Rose Byrne: It was a new experience. I never felt anything quite as hard. [Laughs]

Angry Birds Finally Takes Down Captain America: Civil War at the Box Office

22 May 2016 1:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's massive Phase 3 blockbuster Captain America: Civil War has already made a huge splash at the box office in a short amount of time, crossing $300 million domestically and $1 billion mark at the global box office, after two impressive weekends in release. Despite these huge numbers, the superhero adventure couldn't pull off a third straight win in theaters, going up against Sony's The Angry Birds Movie, Universal's Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and Warner Bros.' The Nice Guys. Captain America: Civil War was bested by Sony's animated adventure The Angry Birds Movie, which earned an estimated $39 million in its first weekend.

Box Office Mojo reports that The Angry Birds Movie opened in 3,932, which is still significantly lower than Captain America's 4,226-theater rollout, but it's the biggest debut Cap and The Avengers have faced thus far. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising debuted in 3,384 theaters, while The Nice Guys arrived in 2,865 theaters. The »

Rose Byrne: Oiling Up Shirtless Zac Efron Was 'Disgusting'

20 May 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Rose Byrne is a comedy star on the rise, whether you (or she) realizes it or not.

With comedically supercharged co-stars like Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz, Carla Gallo, and Lisa Kudrow, the actress is in hilarious company in "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising," but let's not forget that Byrne herself has an enviable Hollywood comedy career, with huge hits like "Bridesmaids," "Neighbors," and "Spy" under her belt. And she's showing no signs of slowing down.

We recently sat down with Byrne to talk about why it made sense for her to do a sequel to 2014's comedy hit "Neighbors," why she and Seth make such a great team, how her pregnancy affected filming, and what oiling up a shirtless Zac Efron is really like (hint: it's not as sexy as it sounds).

Moviefone: At one point did you decide you'd be game for a follow-up -- immediately after the first one? »

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Review

18 May 2016 10:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite opening with Seth Rogen’s familiar grunts of passion, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising has no intention of safely lambasting Greek Life culture for a second time. The boys may be back, but it’s the women who take Nicholas Stoller’s hilarious sequel by the balls, demanding comedic equality while eviscerating skewed perceptions. Refreshingly, female characters are granted the hard-earned respect they deserve. Pro-feminist, pro-lgbt, pro-whatever, this is no mere movie. It’s a damning response that hears a growing chorus of voices, and loudens their cries with a Hollywood megaphone. Sure, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s five-man writing team may aggressively force their agenda at times, but that doesn’t make their message any less true – or necessary.

You saw Neighbors, so Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising shouldn’t come as a structural surprise. Once again, Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) square off against rowdy college kids living next door. »

Can Angry Birds Take Down Captain America at the Box Office?

17 May 2016 10:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Later this week, Marvel's massive Phase 3 blockbuster Captain America: Civil War will cross $300 million domestically while passing the $1 billion mark at the global box office, after two impressive weekends in release. But it's possible that it may fall out of the top spot this weekend. The superhero adventure faces its biggest threat to the crown thus far, going up against three highly-anticipated new releases, Sony's The Angry Birds Movie, Universal's Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and Warner Bros.' The Nice Guys. While it all depends on how much Marvel's Civil War drops in its third frame, we're predicting that The Angry Birds Movie will come out on top.

According to Box Office Mojo, The Angry Birds Movie will open in more than 3,700 theaters, which is still roughly 500 theaters fewer than Captain America's 4,226-theater rollout, but it's the biggest debut Cap and The Avengers have faced thus far. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising »

Seth Rogen has a surprisingly progressive comedy sequel hit in “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”

17 May 2016 4:16 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I’m fairly certain that no one was calling for a sequel to the comedy hit Neighbors. That being said, I think that Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is probably better than anyone could have expected it to be. Opening this week, the film is a surprising triumph, a comedy sequel that might even be better than the original. At the very least, it stands tall among comedy sequels, which more or less is a cinematic wasteland, quality wise. It’s also a surprisingly progressive film, which really makes it stand apart. Seth Rogen and his cohorts will likely have another big hit on their hands, and deservedly so. The movie is, obviously, a sequel to Neighbors. We once again see Mac Radner (Rogen) and his wife Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) fighting with a Greek organization that’s taken up residence next door to their home. This time though, it’s a sorority, »

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.

Second Opinion – Bad Neighbours 2 (2016)

8 May 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bad Neighbours 2, 2016.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller.

Starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Chloe Grace Moretz, Dave Franco, Kiersey Clemons, Ike Barinholtz, Selena Gomez, Carla Gallo and Lisa Kudrow.

Synopsis:

After a sorority moves in next door, which is even more debaucherous than the fraternity before it, Mac and Kelly have to ask for help from their former enemy, Teddy.

 

Following on from 2014’s Bad Neighbours, its sequel is a pro-feminism, gross out, debauched and at times hilarious comedy.

Set a few years after the original, Mac (Rogen) and Kelly (Byrne) are going through escrow as they’re set to move to a bigger house and all is going well until a sorority move in next door. The jokes and set pieces come thick and fast, ensuring that this sequel stands up to its predecessor.

The plot is thin, but for a comedy of this style you’re not exactly »

Bad Neighbours 2, 2016.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller.

Synopsis:

After a sorority moves in next door, which is even more debaucherous than the fraternity before it, Mac and Kelly have to ask for help from their former enemy, Teddy.

We’ve all been here before: the dreaded comedy sequel. In theory, the thought of returning to the well with some of the characters you grew to love brings much anticipation, but more often than not the result is of thunderous disappointment. Sequels to Ted, Dumb & Dumber, The Hangover (two of them!) and Zoolander to name a few have come and gone with little in the way of lasting impression for those so enamoured the first time around. There have been success mind you (22 Jump Street, Back to the Future »

Bad Neighbours 2 review: “Intoxicating, inventive fun”

4 May 2016 2:27 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bad Neighbours 2 review: The comedy sequel surprises with an inventive script, a cast having the time of their lives and side-splitting laughs throughout.

The sequel to the surprise 2014 hit hits U.K. cinemas on May 6th. Read our Bad Neighbours 2 review below.

Bad Neighbours 2 review

In 2014, a film named Bad Neighbours, or simply Neighbors if you reside in the North American territories, captivated audiences around the world. The Seth Rogen and Zac Efron-led comedy grossed a whopping $270 million around the world – from an estimated $18 million budget, and it even managed to win over some critics in the process. It’s no surprise that a sequel was given the greenlight, but one does have to think; where would a second movie take us? Does it have legs for a second outing? Can Zac Efron really come back from the fallout of January’s Dirty Grandpa?

Zac Efron Gets Oiled Up In Latest Clip For Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

29 April 2016 7:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever the one to think outside the box – often a line of thinking that heralds disastrous results – Zac Efron’s Teddy hatches a seemingly foolproof plan the latest clip for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and yes, it involves taking his shirt off.

Putting old rivalries to one side in the face of a common enemy, Efron’s jock joins forces with Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne’s well-to-do parents Mac and Kelly Radner in order to exercise some control over the rowdy sorority next door. Such a strategy sparks an all-out turf war between the Radner’s and the Kappas – a group of party-loving sisters led by Chloë Grace Moretz.

Attempting to orchestrate said chaos from behind the lens is director Nicholas Stoller. With a Sorority on the rise, Stoller has recruited a starry ensemble for this year’s comedy sequel, one which comprises Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz, Carla Gallo, »
