New Comedy Sequel ‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’ Opening In Theaters This Friday

Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express, The Interview), Rose Byrne (X-Men: First Class, Get Him To The Greek), and Zac Efron (That Awkward Moment, We Are Your Friends) are back for another run as enemy neighbors in a sequel to the 2014 comedy hit, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. This time around, with the fraternity moved out, a sorority moves in, and Mac and Kelly must team up with their late frat-enemy, Teddy, in order to handle the new rowdy neighbors. Personally I don’t understand why you wouldn’t want a house-full of college girls right next door, but anything for the sake of comedy I guess. Director Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Five-Year Engagement) leads the returning cast along side actors Chloe Grace Moretz (Carrie, The Equalizer), Selena Gomez (Monte Carlo, Hotel Transylvania), Dave Franco (21 Jump Street, Unfinished Business), and Lisa Kudrow (Friends, Analyze This). The trailer is here on MADE. Catch it in theaters this Friday.

Director Craig Zobel’s ‘Z For Zachariah’ Now Playing In Theaters

Opening in theaters today is a new post-apocalyptic drama from director Craig Zobel (Great World of Sound, Compliance) titled Z For Zachariah. The film comes from an adaptation of Robert C. O’Brien‘s 1975 novel of the same name by screenwriter Nissar Modi (Breaking at the Edge) about a trio of survivors living in a post World War III environment who find themselves entwined in an intense love-triangle as the only known survivors of the nuclear fallout. Making up the three-member cast line-up is Oscar-nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor (American Gangster, 12 Years A Slave), and actors Chris Pine (Unstoppable, Star Trek: Into Darkness), and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus).

Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, And Zac Efron Returning For ‘Neighbors 2’ Summer 2016

Universal Pictures has announced that a sequel to their worldwide box-office hit Neighbors has been given a green-light and has been set for release on May 13th, 2016. The sequel will bring back original cast members Seth Rogen (Knocked Up, The Interview), Rose Byrne (X-Men:First Class, Get Him To The Greek), and Zac Efron (Parkland, That Awkward Moment), as well as director Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Five-Year Engagement) and original writers Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, who thus far will only serve as executive producers. The project is still early in production, and a script or even a screenwriter has yet to be found, but I’m sure many would just as soon not see a sequel made at all. Given the context and originality of the first film it’s going to be difficult to come up with a sequel that’s actually worth making, but if Universal thinks they can rake in another $250 million by making a sequel, then that’s exactly what they’ll do. Stay tuned.

Universal Wants Rose Byrne For Comedy Space Adventure ‘The Something’


Universal is currently looking to actress Rose Byrne to take a leading role in their new comedy The Something, following a group of astronauts who get lost in space. Byrne just appeared alongside Seth Rogen and Zac Efron in Neighbors, and has also appeared in movies including Get Him To The Greek and X-Men: First Class. The Something will be produced by Seth Rogen and Grey Point Productions as well as Good Universe, who also produced Neighbors and Last Vegas, and will feature Rodney Rothman in his first project as director. Rothman is known best for his work on The Late Show with David Letterman, but he also recently wrote the screenplay for 22 Jump Street and has served as producer on movies like The Five-Year Engagement, Get Him To The Greek, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It is unclear whether or not Seth Rogen will actually appear on camera for this one and there is currently no release date for the film.

‘Gozilla’ Opens In Theaters To Popular Reviews

Director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla re-boot hit theaters this weekend, and thus far the reviews have been nothing but positive. Starring Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Elizabeth Olsen, the new film has, according to Mark Kermode of The Guardian, remained incredibly “appreciative” to the story telling of Ishiro Honda’s original 1954 Gojira/Godzilla film. This new take on the classic story definitely brings its own uniqueness to the classic tale, especially with the modern-day visual effects that are available to present-day filmmakers, but there is also a sense of loyalty to the original filmmaker’s vision for the characters and the historical implications of the story. Also currently in theaters is Seth Rogen and Zac Efron’s Neighbors, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (which has opened to mixed reviews from critics and comic-book fanatics), and Million Dollar Arm with Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm and Oscar winner Alan Arkin. Here’s the trailer for Godzilla, just in case you need anymore convincing to go see it! Enjoy!
