Universal Pictures has released the first red-band trailer for director Nicholas Stoller’s (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) new comedy Neighbors. Previously titled Townies, the film stars Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as a young couple who move in next door to a fraternity house. The thirty-somethings soon find themselves the victims of pranks (and other unsightly activities) after an attempt to welcome the Delta Psi Beta chapter goes awkwardly awry. There are plenty of great snippets of what are sure to be funny moments throughout the picture as Neighbors takes a look at the hard-partying Greek life of films like Old School, Animal House and PCU from the viewpoint of the squares on the outside. And while Christopher Mintz-Plasse doesn’t get any dialogue, he sure does get a moment.
Hit the jump to watch the red-band trailer. The film also stars Zac Efron, Dave Franco, Jake Johnson, Ike Barinholtz, Jason Mantozoukas, and Lisa Kudrow. Neighbors opens in theaters on May 9, 2014.
