Zac Efron is letting his bad boy flag fly in the new red-band trailer for the comedy “Neighbors.” The “High School Musical” star plays a fraternity member who faces off against Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne after his frat house moves in to the home next to them.

This is a fun turn for Efron, who frequently plays a romantic lead or good guy in films. Seeing him tackle Robert De Niro‘s Travis Bickle is hilarious, and so are some of the antics his fellow Greek life housemates get up to.

“The Neighbors” is due in theaters on May 9, 2014. It also stars Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Lisa Kudrow.
