50 Shades of Grey Trailer: Do You Trust Me?

A third trailer for the forthcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie has been released, offering fans another taste of the passion of Christian Grey and Ana Steele.

Like the previous, full-length Fifty Shades of Grey trailer released earlier this month, it’s all about the chemistry between Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.

Can they sell that spark and make this film a massive hit? You decide …

Set to the Beyonce song “Haunted,” the new teaser features Christian telling impressionable young Anastasia, “I don’t do romance. My tastes are very singular.”

Hmm. Wonder what kind of tastes he could be talking about here.

Cue the obligatory kissing, undressing and bondage montage, and the climactic final scene, in which Christian places a blindfold over Anastasia’s eyes.

“Do you trust me?” Mr. Grey asks, as the screen fades to black.

Do you trust these two actors to deliver a believable, enticing product that fans of E.L. James erotic novel will be similarly infatuated with is the bigger question.

One that has cast some doubts over the project from the start.

With Charlie Hunnam bailing on the lead role and Dakota Johnson not coming off sexy to the point where the love scenes had to be re-shot, it’s been a rough ride.

Hot Hot HOT

That look on Ana’s face as Christian Grey takes off his tie says it all.

With all the hype, skepticism and years of online fantasy casting becoming the Internet’s favorite pastime, some are bound to be disappointed by the result.

Once we see the finished product, though, it all could change.

Can Dornan, in particular, embody the tortured soul (and hot body) that is Christian Grey and win over 50 Shades Nation the way James’ book built an empire?

As February 13 draws closer, only time will tell.

The Shawshank Redemption Cast: Where Are They Now?

Earlier this week, the cast of The Shawshank Redemption reunited in Hollywood for a 20th anniversary screening of the film.

A box office flop when it was first released in 1994, Shawshank has since earned its place on the short list of true modern cinematic classics.

Tim Robbins

The most recognizable Shawshank inmate at the time of the film’s release, Robbin’s performance as the wrongly-convicted Andy Dufresne has since become his signature role. In the years that followed he directed the acclaimed film Dead Man Walking, won an Academy Award for his performance in Mystic River, and established his place as one of Hollywood’s most versatile talents.

Life-affirming but never cloying; heart-wrenching without being manipulative, Shawshank is one of those rare films whose appeal transcends generational boundaries and the demographic niches that usually determine a film’s success.

No small feat for a film that features a murder and a rape scene in its first 20 minutes.

Yes, unlike other films that have survived as sentimental favorites, Shawshank is no family-friendly romp.

A tale of brutality and injustice of the highest order, Shawshank – like its protagonist in the film’s thrilling climax – takes the hard road to an unexpectedly satisfying conclusion.

In that sense, it’s a film that proves one of the most vital truths of storytelling – a happy ending is only as moving as the struggles that preceded it.

1994 was a banner year for American movies, with Forrest Gump and Pulp Fiction also vying for Academy Awards honors.  

And yet somehow despite the boomer-years nostalgia of Gump and the violently audacious thrills of Fiction, Shawshank might be the year’s most enduringly beloved offering.

And for a film that was widely dismissed by audiences twenty years ago, there can surely be no greater redemption.

Check out our update on Shawshank’s principal players in the gallery above.

Mockingjay Movie Reviews: Are the Odds Ever in its Favor?

According to Donald Sutherland, Jennifer Lawrence is akin to Jesus Christ.

That’s mighty high praise for the star of The Hunger Games franchise.

But is The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 worthy of the same praise? What are critics around the country saying about this wildly anticipated blockbuster? Let’s find out…

Julianne Moore as President Coin

This is our first look at Julianne Moore in Mockingjay. It’s safe to say we’re excited for the film.

Mockingjay – Part 1, however well done, can’t compete with the first two films, although it sets up what should be its stunning ending well enough. – Tom Long

If Mockingjay – Part 1 is quieter and less flashy than its predecessors, that doesn’t make it less satisfying. – Steven Rea

Lawrence delivers on what dramatic beats half a novel affords him. You just wish there were more of them and that they provided a more complete, more satisfying story arc. – Kenneth Turan

Katniss’ concern for the anti-sexy Peeta results in her spending quite a bit of the movie in po-faced mopery. – Kurt Loder

Mockingjay – Part 1 is just big enough of a story that, even as a two-parter, the film feels substantial and justifiably halved. There’s simply too much to digest as all the pieces are put into place and the real games are set to begin. – Kirk Baird

This is the “Empire Strikes Back” of the series, with the heroes constantly on defense – running, hiding, planning, hoping. - Rob Thomas

Jennifer Lawrence is as good as always and gets a few key scenes to play up the emotional aspect of what’s occurring.- Jim Judy

Kim Kardashian Reads Fifty Shades of Grey Passage, Looks to Break Radio

In a moment immediately enshrined in the Overrated Pop Culture Topics Hall of Fame, Kim Kardashian read a passage from Fifty Shades of Grey on the radio.

While there is no disputing that the fully nude Kim Kardashian Paper magazine photos broke the Internet, could she destroy the radio as well with this stunt?

Not quite. But it makes for an interesting listen.

The 34-year-old is in Australia promoting her new fragrance Fleur Fatale. Yes, you can allegedly smell like Kim if you feel like wasting some of your cash.

Most of the questions she fields on her recent media tour involve her oiled-up photo shoot, so in that respect, we give Perth’s 92.9 FM credit for originality.

Show hosts Heidi, Will, and Woody asked North West‘s mom if she would help them break the radio by reading from E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey.

Devoid of personality but nevertheless game, Kardashian obliged, reading the paragraph in question, with one “rude word” replaced with her fragrance.

“His tongue is in my mouth,” Kardashian read, sort of seductively. “Claiming and possessing me, his fingers still moving rhythmically inside my Fleur Fatale.”

As the trio of radio show hosts broke out laughing at the epically cheesy dialogue, Kardashian said with a sultry smile, “You guys there’s so much more.”

That there is. None of it is good unless you’re looking for unintentional comedy, but there’s plenty more of the allegedly erotic novel where this came from.

There’s also a new Fifty Shades of Grey trailer you can check out, but we’re guessing you’re interested in something else if you’re reading this right now.

See below. You’re welcome, and you can thank us later.

Kim Kardashian: Naked for Paper

Kim Kardashian wears nothing but her birthday suit in this photo for the winter 2014 issue of Paper. Looks like she’s lost all that baby weight, huh?

Celeb Blind Item Who Wasn’t Ready For Her Big Comeback?

Blind-Folded-Man17This blind item is just sad. Really sad. The pressures of fame aren’t for the weak! Get the deets after the break.

March 10, 2009

This actress is C list now. Back in the day she was probably a B lister with some very famous boyfriends who were A listers when they dated. Our actress was also around for one of the most famous moments in Hollywood history. You might think she is old from the description I’ve given, but she’s not. She just has been acting a long time and it is taking a toll. How big of a toll? Well our actress has multiple movies coming out in which she is actually the female lead in two of them. The movies need press, but she can’t do it. She is on so many different kinds of pills right now that she doesn’t know if she is coming or going and barely can utter a coherent sentence that is not memorized in advance. The producers of the first movie she has scheduled to come out and have already given up trying to get her to promote it and instead have come up with gimmicks. The producers of the second movie want to get her into rehab, but she just wants to be left alone to live her life as she pleases. These movies represented her comeback, but it doesn’t look like it will last for long at this rate.

Any guesses? Take a look at the reveal by clicking on “Crazy Days and Nights” below.

Kendall Jenner Reacts to Parents’ Divorce: It Sucked!

Kendall Jenner has opened up for the first time, in any real depth, about her parents no longer being married.

Speaking to Nightline’s Juju Chang, the model – who recently signed an endorsement deal with Estee Lauder – said of Kris and Bruce Jenner splitting up after decades of marriage:

“It sucked.”

Kendall Jenner Ad Still

But the teenager is trying to put the divorce in perspective.

“I try to think of it as it’s not the worst thing that could have happened,” Kendall says.

Last fall, after 22 years as husband and wife, Kris separated from Bruce, with the couple referencing Kendall and Kylie Jenner in a statement at the time.

“We have children together, and we have memories and holidays and traditions,” Kris Jenner then told Us Weekly last month of the relationship these days. “I don’t want to give that up. I don’t want him to take that away from me and I don’t want to take that away from him.”

Kendal told Nightline that she hasn’t chosen sides in the break-up. She’s just happy to have both parents around.

“I still am so close with both my dad and my mom,” she notes. “Nothing has really changed, except for the fact that now my dad lives on a beach, which is awesome. That’s not that bad… everybody’s happy.”

Tune in to ABC on Tuesday, November 18, at 12:35 a.m. ET to watch Kendall’s complete interview, in which she also talks about her modeling career and how she has tried not to take advantage of her family’s name to succeed in it.

Kylie and Kendall Jenner Share a Moment

Kendall and Kylie exchange a meaningful look. These two can communicate without words.

Nicki Minaj Nip Slip Posted to Instagram: The "Only" Photo You Need to Ogle Today!

Nicki Minaj knows how to promote some music.

Fresh off a rare apology for Nazi imagery included in her recent video, the 31-year-old rapper pivoted back to a more universally beloved, but still racy tactic:

Posting a blatant “nip slip” on her Instagram!

Nicki Minaj Nip Slips

The shot is from the set of her “Only” video.

Nicki took to Instagram yesterday and posted a series of pictures of herself in scantily clad black lingerie, which didn’t quite cut it in terms of coverage.

Looking good, Nicki. Ya look good girl.

Some fans have noted that Cher wore a very similar outfit while performing “Turn Back Time” in 1989. Could Minaj be paying tribute to the music icon?

The track also features Drake and Lil Wayne, which should make for quite a video. Even Nicki’s lyric video already caused a big stir. Wait for the real deal.

Nicki’s apology for the lyric video stated that, “I didn’t come up with the concept, but I’m very sorry & take full responsibility if it has offended anyone.”

“I’d never condone Nazism in my art.”

You buying it? Or was it as “accidental” as the wardrobe malfunction above (which comes on the heels of an equally dubious Kristen Stewart nip slip)?

Hit the comments, and scroll through this gallery of Nicki Minaj fun facts to learn a whole lot more about this wildly famous, yet enigmatic star …

Nicki Has One Tattoo

It says “God is always with you” in Chinese. Nicki says she regrets it and has thought aboutn having it removed.

Kristen Stewart on Nip Slip: If You Wanna See Me Naked, Watch My Movies!

Over the weekend, the Hollywood Film Awards featured some humiliating moments for Tinsel Town’s best and brightest.

First, Johnny Depp’s drunk speech went viral. Then some eagle-eyed pervs pointed out the “Kristen Stewart nip slip” to the world, even though it was really just a loose-knit top.

Kristen Stewart Nip Slip

Now, Kristen has reportedly reacted to the Internet’s obsession with her almost-exposed boobs with her usual “meh, whatever” enthusiasm:

“She is not worried about it. It’s not a big deal,” a source close to Kristen says. “If people want to see her naked, she would rather it be from the movie’s she’s done with nudity, but this has happened and she’s already forgotten about it.”

“It’s not like the Fappening, and certainly not the worst thing cameras have caught from her. Not a big deal at all.”

Sadly, the source didn’t provide a full list of the movies in which Kristen appears nude, but don’t worry – we gotcha covered:

Kristen’s sex scenes for On the Road provide most of the highlights of her nakedness career, but she also gets nude in the Clouds of Sils Marie.

Both films are totally artsy, so you can stream them without feeling like a creep when your roommate walks in. You’re welcome, America. 

Happy Birthday, Kristen Stewart!

Hooray for Kristen Stewart! The actress is now 24 years old!

Matthew McConaughey Will He Have A ‘Magic Mike XXL’ Cameo?

"Interstellar" - Los Angeles PremiereI’m sure we all felt a little deflated to hear that Matthew McConaughey would not be returning to the ‘Magic Mike’ sequel, ‘Magic Mike XXL.’ It’s understandable: he’s been doing A LOT of movies in the last couple of years, so his schedule may have been a bit too full to reprise his hot (albeit creepy) role for ‘Magic Mike XXL.’ However, it turns out he may have made some time to fit a quick trip to Savannah, GA, where the film is shooting, for a cameo. RELATED: Matthew McCongaughey definitely is not returning to ‘Magic Mike XXL.’

A source told Page Six that Matthew would, indeed, make a brief appearance in ‘Magic Mike XXL.’ If it’s a cameo then I’m guessing we won’t be seeing a dance scene, but hey, we’ll take what we can get, right? The studio didn’t confirm this source’s claim, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next summer when the movie comes out.

Channing Tatum talked about the strict diet he had to follow to get into stripper shape for the movie; I’m guessing Matthew is over all that stuff. I can’t blame him- LOL.
