A trend implies something a little more transient, a fad that will pass over and be discarded in favour of the next trend.
A movement implies something a little more significant that will be moved on from, but refered back to in later works.

A trend is a deviation whereas a movement is a right hand turn. That is a movement is more pronounced. For example modernism is a movement whereas the craze for chick lit is a trend.
