Walt Disney Pictures Ireland have sent over a trailer for one of their new movies. Called Prom it is pretty obviously directed at the High School Musical/Glee market, and judging by the success of both of those they could be on to a winner. There’s a few pics from the movie too for your viewing pleasure.
The movie focuses on a group of teenagers getting ready for their senior prom (basically the US equivalent of the debs) and as most of us can attest a truly stressful time in the life of any teenager.
Friday Night Lights star Aimee Teegarden is the main draw, with most of the rest of the cast (Thomas McDonell, Danielle Campbell, etc.) newcomers or relative unknowns.
With a documentary feel and a thumping soundtrack Prom could be good. Granted it’s not my cup of tea but hey that’s my problem.
Prom is released April 29th, 2011.
At “Prom,” every couple has a story and no two are exactly alike. Several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches; “Prom” portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. For Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), it’s a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Fellow seniors Mei (Yin Chang) and Tyler (De’Vaughn Nixon) harbor secrets, while others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds one of high school’s most seminal events. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there’s only one “Prom.” Featuring an emerging ensemble cast and a powerful soundtrack, “Prom” hits theaters April 29, 2011.
