The trailer for 50 Shades of Second Hand Embarrassment has arrived in full and does not disappoint in both cringe-inducing and blush-worthy moments.
Based on the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, the new film starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan (keep running and don’t look back, Charlie Hunnam!) follows a virginal college reporter and her subordinate relationship with a S&M loving billionaire. I know what you’re thinking and no, this isn’t another Nicholas Sparks adaptation.
For those of us who may have forgotten that the 50 Shades of Grey series was born out of Twilight fan fiction, mortifying lines in the trailer like “There’s not much to know about me. Look at me” act as a swift reminder that viewers are here to see hot people making out, not to witness a future Oscar contender.
The trailer features a remix of Beyoncé’s Crazy In Love, so there’s that. The film hits theatres on Valentines Day, because of course it does.Tweet
