So it is all over — the Fifty Shades trilogy that tried to be more than just kinky unspoken sex and about two seemingly wildly incompatible characters getting together and sustaining a relationship. But the surprising thing about it is that despite how terrible the first feature, Fifty Shades Of Grey, was, the following installments were actually pretty tolerable to the point of enjoyment. Yes, the entire trilogy as a whole is pretty bad, and the lack of chemistry between leads Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan is clear, but by the time we get from Fifty Shades Darker to Fifty Shades Freed, we see that the franchise has embraced its absurdity.
The result is that we can enjoy the film for what it is. Regardless of how one may feel about the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed is just one of those films that is so bad it’s actually pretty good. And owning up to the fact that it can be mildly enjoyable is hard to admit. My full review below.
RLJE Films has released an official trailer for I Kill Giants, an upcoming fantasy drama from the producers of Harry Potter based on the graphic novel of the same name by Joe Kelly (who also penned the screenplay) and J. M. Ken Niimura.
The movie is directed by Anders Walter, who makes his feature directorial debut here but already owns an Academy Award for his live-action short film Helium. It stars Madison Wolfe (The Conjuring 2, True Detective), Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy, Avatar), Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later, Fright Night ), Sydney Wade (The Damned United, Sherlock), Jennifer Ehle (Zero Dark Thirty, The King’s Speech), and Noel Clarke (Doctor Who, Star Trek: Into Darkness).

I’m not entirely sure if the Fifty Shades franchise still has that tight grip it once had when it was at its pop culture peak, but at least its film franchise intends to see the trilogy all the way to the end. Despite being knocked for its poor writing and lack of chemistry between the two leads, the series’ success – if you can call it that – has led up to the final installment of the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed.
And now with just a couple of months left until the film’s traditional Valentine’s Day release, Universal is releasing yet another trailer to remind you that this sex-filled soap opera drama is coming. Check out the latest trailer below.
Universal Pictures has released the second official trailer to Fifty Shades Darker starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The film is a sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, which ended awkwardly, I might add. However, devoted fans knew that the story wasn’t over, with this being a trilogy.
In the new trailer for the sequel, we see the two rekindle that relationship that involves kinky PDA, ghosts from Christian’s past, and other people who will complicate their relationship. Because what’s a good soapy drama without that. Check out the full trailer below.
