The 'Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising' Trailer Gives Us Less Zac Efron, But More Girl Power — VIDEO
Zac Efron made us both wish even not wish that he lived next door to us in the 2014 comedy, Neighbors. However, this time around, things seem to be getting a whole lot crazier. The sequel for the hit comedy movie, Neighbors 2: Sorority Risin released a trailer on Tuesday, and it seems to have a lot less Zac Efron — but a ton more girl power. This college-themed comedy sequel stars the likes of Chloe Grace Moretz and Selena Gomez, and the plot occurs when a sorority moves in next door to Mac Radner and Kelly Radner (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne). This causes Efron's character, Teddy Sanders, to join forces with them so that they may raise their baby in peace — even if ragging sorority parties are happening just a few feet away.
But what makes living next door to a (fictional) sorority even more terrifying than living next door to (fictional) fraternity? "With the sorority girls, it's like a glimpse into their daughter's future, and it terrifies them," Rose Byrne explains about her character to Entertainment Weekly. However, from the looks of the trailer, I have a feeling that this movie is going to bring up one key issue among the number of typical, comedy movie-expected stereotypes: Never underestimate a girl. Just take a look at the trailer for yourself.
Yep, you actually just witnessed a trailer for a college comedy movie which appears to have the sole purpose of doing one thing: Leveling the playing field. Ultimately — aside from all of the stereotypes of wearing bikinis and washing cars — these college girls, lead by Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz), just want to do what they want. Without anyone or anything standing in their way. And, I have to admit, that deserves some serious respect.
1. They Start Their Own Sorority
Don't like something? Go ahead and change it. Even if what you're fighting for is more partying.
2. They Know How To Party
Girls just want to have fun!
3. They Still Make Time For Studying
Looking good doesn't mean you don't still hit the books. Beauty and brains are definitely a thing.
4. They Fight For What's Theirs
We all know that Chloe Grace Moretz can kick-ass. I can't wait to see what she does in this movie.
5. They Own Their Sexuality
Because why not?
6. And We Still Get To See Zac Efron...
Although his appearances seem brief, it is still his movie after all.
Sill not convinced that this movie may have more female empowerment than you realized? Well, Moretz clarified that herself by discussing the fact the movie was in fact written by female writers: "If any of the women [fellow actresses] ever feel there's something inappropriate, we speak up, and they will never push the boundaries with us. They've been really respectful." Yep, the playing field is finally being leveled in a comedy college film.
Now, we just have to wait to see it all unfold on the big screen on May 20, 2016.
