Zac Efron and Seth Rogen join forces to take down a sorority in new Neighbors 2 trailer

The boys next door may have been the problem in Neighbors, but girls are taking over the trouble-making in the sequel to the 2014 hit. Universal Pictures has released the first Neighbors 2 trailer, and it’s another war against Greeks for parents Mac and Kelly (played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne). This time, however, they’ll have help from former adversaries Teddy and Pete (Zac Efron and Dave Franco) as they battle a new challenge.

The comedy centers on a couple expecting their second child and hoping to sell their house and move to the suburbs. Unfortunately, their plans are complicated when a group of girls, rebelling against inequalities in their school’s Greek system, move in next door to start a new kind of sorority — one that violates school rules to throw massive parties. Worried about how this will affect the sale of their home, Mac and Kelly hatch a plan to force their unruly neighbors out.

Based on the trailer, the Kappa Nu sisters, led by Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz), are just as bad — if not worse — than their predecessors. The preview shows how Mac’s hopes that the girls will be quieter and less drug-addled than boys prove to be incorrect. He and his wife find that worked against the guys isn’t effective this time around, so they call in “somebody who can relate to stupid young people”: Teddy.

In addition to Rogen, Byrne, Efron, and Franco, Neighbors 2 brings back Ike Barinholtz and Carla Gallo. Meanwhile, Selena Gomez and Lisa Kudrow join Moretz as newcomers. The flick is directed by Nicholas Stoller, who teamed up with Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Andrew Jay Cohen, and Brendan O’Brien to write the script. O’Brien, Cohen, Nathan Kahane, and Joe Drake served as executive producers, with Rogen, Goldberg, and James Weaver producing.

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising will hit theaters on May 20.

A movie based on the Where's Waldo? books has been in the works for a while, though without much movement, after it was first announced back in 2011. That project now appears to have found some momentum, however, with Seth Rogen and his frequent collaborator, Evan Goldberg, joining the film as producers.

The live-action film will reportedly follow inventor/janitor Waldo on an adventure through time and space in the spirit of the best-selling series of vividly illustrated books created by Martin Handford.

Watch: Dolph Lundgren takes over for Arnold in Kindergarten Cop 2
kindergarten cop 2 trailer

Kindergarten Cop 2 won't have Arnold Schwarzenegger or a theatrical release, but the direct-to-video movie will still feature a recognizable action star and stay close to the original comedy's entertaining premise. In a new trailer, we see Dolph Lundgren play an FBI agent who is completely out of his element when he is sent to go undercover as a kindergarten teacher.

Lundgren's character, Agent Reed, ends up with his teaching assignment after sensitive data goes missing that he needs to recover. He'll find multiple challenges along the way, from managing the liberal school environment to coping with a wild bunch of kids. The little ones do look pretty out of control; in fact, one boy can even be seen peeing in a trash can during the trailer, so it's hard to blame Agent Reed for describing them as "little monsters."
