I'm OK with Prince still partying like it's 1999 but Jason Biggs? Not so much.
Today, Universal released the first teaser for the latest American Pie film, “American Reunion,” starring original cast members Jason Biggs, Sean William Scott, Tara Reid and pretty much everyone who has ever appeared in an American Pie movie.
Written and directed by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, "American Reunion" finds the gang back in East Great Falls for their 10-year reunion, where married life, Stifler's Mom and other recycled jokes await.

HOLLYWOOD -- A few minutes before the Valentine’s Day premiere of Lionsgate’s “Good Deeds,” Tyler Perry admitted he had given himself a unique challenge.
“The toughest thing for me was being so exposed because I wasn’t able to hide in a costume,” noted Perry, who’s best known for his Madea persona on-screen.
Perry’s the writer, director, producer and lead actor in “Deeds,” portraying a well-organized businessman — much like his directing style of doing only a few takes. Gabrielle Union , who portrays his fiancee in the film, said she remains impressed when she’s worked with Perry.
“It’s such a contrast — being done in two takes since I’m used to doing dozens on a scene,” she noted.
Perry believes he’s got to keep it brisk, adding, “If I’m doing the fifth or sixth take, I must be doing something wrong. At that point, the actors start to feel strange.”
The world got its first glimpse of Timur Bekmambetov’s “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" on Monday as 20th Century Fox released a teaser-trailer for the highly anticipated tentpole.
Starring Benjamin Walker as Honest Abe and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“Smashed”) as his wife, Mary Todd, “Vampire Hunter” is based on the popular mashup novel by Seth Grahame-Smith and tells the faux story of Abraham Lincoln, who goes on a quest to rid the world of vampires after his mother is murdered by monsters.
Tim Burton produced the film with Bekmambetov.
Domestic auds know Bekmambetov from the 2008 box office hit “Wanted,” hence the heavy use of slow-motion here (think Guy Richie/"Sherlock Holmes" wood explosions).
"We are keeping the traditional look of Lincoln," Bekmambetov recently told Empire. "The big hat and the beard. He has to be historically correct, but with a few special weapons."
Bekmambetov actually got his start with vampire features, "Night Watch" and "Day Watch," so "Vampire Hunter" could fall right into his wheelhouse.
Fox's "Abraham Lincoln" marks what could be a surprisingly potent June for the studio. Despite being surrounded by Marvel superheroes and G.I. Joes, the studio will release Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" on June 9 before "Lincoln" bows on June 22.
And I know what some of you are thinking: “Abe Lincoln and vampires?? Puh-lease." Well if you like your history pics more…honest…then Spielberg’s Lincoln film, starring Daniel Day Lewis, arrives this Christmas. Otherwise, I wouldn’t write off Fox's “Vampire Hunter” just yet.
Shot in 3D last year in Louisiana, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” was adapted for the screen by Seth Grahame-Smith and Simon Kinberg.
