Zac Efron has left his innocent, more musical days as an East High Wildcat and joined up with the wild frat boys of Delta Psi Beta in the NSFW trailer for the new comedy, "Neighbors."
In "Neighbors," the boys of Delta Psi have moved into a brand new frat house, right next door to Mac and Kelly Radner, played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. The two parents extend a welcoming hand to the boys, but a wild party kicks off a prank war of epic proportions.
Check out the brand news red band trailer for "Neighbors" above. You'll be able to see the whole thing when it hits theaters on May 9.
The trailers for "This Is The End" don't really downplay the fact that a lot of celebrities show up on screen as skewed versions of themselves. But the trailers don't show you every celebrity that shows up to hang out with Seth, James, Jonah, Danny, and Jay.
Co-writer/co-diector Seth Rogen stopped by MTV News' Josh Horowitz's office to talk about one of the biggest surprises of his apocalypse comedy, "This Is The End."
You should know that the video discusses SPOILERS pretty much exclusively, so you should not watch the interview unless you've seen "This Is The End," which is something you should definitely do.
For the upcoming comedy "Townies," Zac Efron will be making his leap to comedy, and he'll be making it in style. The film is being directed by "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" helmer Nicholas Stoller and co-stars Seth Rogen.
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz caught up with Efron backstage at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, he talked at length about the mood on set, working with Seth, and the high volume of shirtless scenes that await the audience.
"It's a pretty funny scene towards the end of the movie, but my character starts working at Abercrombie & Fitch," he said. "We were just out there having fun, total improv."
The end of the world isn't a laughing matter until you gather the likes of Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel, and Craig Robinson at James Franco's house and watch them try to make the best of the end of days.
MTV News' Josh Horowitz was lucky enough to make a trip down to the New Orleans set of "This Is the End" and talk with the stars about playing skewed versions of themselves.
Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the visit to the set of "This Is the End" is Danny McBride's level of preparedness. Did you hear what he said? He's been getting ready for the end of the world since the day he was born.
Forget "World War Z" and the slew of other stylish zombie-ridden films slated for next year, because Seth Rogen and company are busting out with their own post-apocalyptic adventure, and this one promises what the others don't — tons of laughs and really random celebrity cameos.
For their directorial debut, "This is the End," Rogen and Evan Goldberg — both of whom have had a hand in writing and/or producing a string of cult comedies, including "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express" — rounded up a few friends (of the funny, famous, actor variety, of course) to capture their would-be struggle for survival during the end of all days.

As someone who observes the film industry from a journalistic standpoint more so than a fan these days, it's easy to get jaded and cynical about all of Hollywood, full of overpaid actors with too-fragile egos, studios churning out quantity over quality, making movies to win awards, award season, etc. Thankfully there are ways to drown out that noise with little reminders of why movies and a lot of the people who make them are awesome. Case in point, Oscar-nominated director Jason Reitman's innovative and wholly entertaining project Live Read, which brings together a group of known and working actors to read live a script from a beloved or classic film in front of an audience.
Though the idea of pairing Seth Rogen with Barbara Streisand might at first glance seem like a strange one, it turns out that these two are actually a match made in heaven. The duo plays a mother and son in the new comedy "The Guilt Trip," and the first clip from the film proves that these two do that relationship justice.
The scene in question sets up the basic premise for the movie: Rogen is an inventor who invites his mother, played by Streisand, to join him on a cross-country road trip to try to sell his new creation. His real motive for bringing her, though, is to try to reunite her with her lost love. Hilarity and plenty of guilt-tripping are sure to ensue from that point on.
No one is more excited for "The Guilt Trip," the Seth Rogen/Barbra Streisand mother/son road trip movie, than one of its stars, Ari Graynor. You see, she got to geek out on set starring alongside the legendary singer and actress in the flick opening this December.
"I know! I just need to take little beat and say 'I know'!" she told MTV News about her part in the film, written by Dan Fogelman and directed by Anne Fletcher. It follows Rogen, an inventor who takes his mom (Streisand) on a road trip to sell his latest invention. He also is aiming to reunite his mom with her lost love.
"I can't talk too much about it, but I will just say that being in the same zip code as Barbra Streisand is like you know… There isn't a bigger dream come true," she said. "It was really exciting. The script for that movie is genius. It's a road trip movie with Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand as son and mother. Like what could be better? Literally nothing, that the answer. Nothing could better."
