Rogan and Burns get new neighbors, this time it’s a sorority in Neighbors2: Sorority Rising!

Seth Rogan and Rose Byrne are back in the sequel to the 2014 generational comedy hit “Neighbors” battling college girls in “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”. Joining the battle are friends Jimmy ( Ike Barinholtz), Paula (Carla Gallo) and previous nemesis Teddy (Zac Efron).

Mac and Kelly Radner (Rogan and Byrne) are happy again, relishing in the victory over the fraternity that moved in next door. They have sold their house and bought a new house in the suburbs with no neighbors in site. The only thing that can wreck their world is if the buyers back out while sale is in escrow for the next 30 days. During a love making session when Kelly vomits in Mac’s face, they learn Kelly is pregnant again!

Shelby (Chloe Grace Moritz), Beth (Kiersey Clemons) and Nora (Beanie Feldstein) are college freshman that are pledging a sorority. They learn that sororities have parties but all the real fun (drugs and drinking) happen at the fraternities. So Shelby decides to find a house and start their own sorority, Kappa Nu!
