Trailer Park: Volume 1

In this new year, one of my resolutions is to bring you more poptastic updates on movies, TV and music. To kick things off, here is the first in a series of notable vids I like to call Trailer Park. First up, 21:

Jim Sturgess, the Beatles-singin' Brit who stole hearts in last fall's Across the Universe dons an American accent and goes up against Kevin Spacey and Lawrence Fishburne in this spring's 21, a heist flick from popcorn helmer Robert Luketic (Legally Blonde, Monster-in-Law). Sturgess plays an MIT student with a knack for numbers who gets recruited to play some dirty games in - where else - Sin City. Call it Ocean's Eleven: The College Years.

Oh, and Kate Bosworth is in it too.

Check out the nifty trailer (opens March 28, my birthday weekend):

Then, there's April's Prom Night. With the trend of remaking 70s horror movies finally dying down, why not move on to the next decade? The Jamie Lee Curtis slasher flick from 1980 gets a PG-13 redo (cringe) starring Brittany Snow as one of the unfortunate teens who gets trapped in a luxury hotel with one pissed-off party pooper:
