Looking ahead, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron play two entirely different types of “Neighbors” in this comedy from director Nicholas Stoller. Rogen is a family man with a new baby and Efron is the leader of the Fraternity that just moved in next door. There goes the neighborhood.
Also, just in time for Mothers Day, Sony/ Tri-Star opens the new faith based comedy “Moms’ Night Out” and Clarius Entertainment has the 3D animated “Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return”, which quite frankly sounds very “Halloween”-like.
On the limited front, Open Road debuts the Jon Favreau fest fave “Chef”, which just won the Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival (see related story), Magnolia has double barrel action with both “Stage Fright”, a horror comedy with Meat Loaf and Minnie Driver (already on VOD) and “The Double”, a comedy drama with Jessie Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska. Weinstein/Radius opens the Sundance docu on the American food industry, “Fed Up!”, and Tribeca Films opens New York and L.A. on Gia Coppola’s “Palo Alto”, with James Franco and Emma Roberts.
