After a shockingly surprising success in the box office with a total of $269 million in the worldwide market, Neighbors will be getting a sequel. The movie received great ratings and drew in a huge crowd that loved watching Seth Rogen and Zac Efron on screen together.
Both Efron and Rogen will be returning along with Rose Byrne and director Nicholas Stoller will be back again as well. The movie’s plot is definitely a mystery but has to revolve around more of the same with hopes that it can live up to the audience love for the first one. While this could completely destroy the single success they discovered in the hidden gem, it will definitely draw people out to the theater in what will hopefully be another massive payday.
Right now, Paramount has Neighbors 2 scheduled for a May 13, 2016 release date which will have some stiff competition and have to compete with Disney and Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
