Beyoncé Releases “50 Shades of Grey” Trailer

(PCM) Beyoncé dropped a teaser trailer for 50 Shades of Grey on her Instagram on Saturday and the internet is freaking out.

The teaser trailer is more of an announcement for the official trailer which will be released this Thursday, 7/24.

In the meantime, you can watch the teaser trailer below, which appears to feature an a cappella version of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love.”

While it’s unclear why Beyoncé, undoubtedly one of the biggest pop/R&B artists of our time but not in the film, debuted the trailer, the move makes sense considering the BeyHive (Beyoncé’s loyal fans) consists primarily of women aged 18-55, which also happens to be the target demographic for 50 Shades of Grey.

Beyoncé is currently co-headlining with her husband and rap legend/mogul Jay-Z on their On the Run Tour, which is already seeing huge success; each show has been speculated to average $5.2 million in gross sales.

50 Shades of Grey, written by E.L. James in 2011, is the first book in the Fifty Shades trilogy, an erotic romance series that explores the relationship between a young college graduate and a young business mogul, and has already seen its more-than-fair share of success.

The series has been translated into over 52 languages and has sold over 100 million copies worldwide, making it the fastest-selling paperback of all time.

The film, which is speculated to be a box office hit, stars Jamie Dornan (Marie Anntoinette) as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson (21 Jump Street) as Anastasia Steele and is directed by Sam Teylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy).

Stay tuned for the official trailer coming out this Thursday and for 50 Shades of Grey, opening in theaters nationwide February 13, 2015.

Watch the Trailer for the New “Annie”

Annie(PCM) Ever since Jay-Z and Will Smith announced plans to make an Annie remake, the internet has been abuzz with questions, skepticism, and excitement. Now audiences can get their first glimpse at the new film in its recently released trailer, seen below!

In the summer of 2012, the two entrepreneurial stars announced plans to create an Annie remake starring Willow Smith, pop star and Will Smith’s daughter. Due to scheduling conflicts, Willow had to drop the project and now Quvenzhané Wallis will play the iconic lead role sans red afro.

Some people have raised objections to Annie not sporting her characteristic red afro while others object to a modernization of the story, believing that Hollywood is out of original ideas and relies too much on remakes to create box office revenue.

If you ask me, a modernized version of Annie starring Quvenzhané Wallis and produced by Will Smith and Jay-Z sounds like it might be original enough to distinguish itself from the 1982 Annie, which only has a 50% on Rotten Tomatoes anyway, so why not make a remake?

Quvenzhané Wallis is reason enough to see the new Annie; in 2013, the young actress was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for her role as Hushpuppy in the refreshingly original and touching Beasts of the Southern Wild, making her the youngest person to ever receive a Best Actress Oscar nomination.

Also starring in the new Annie are Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan and Jamie Foxx as Benjamin Stacks. Get it, “Benjamin Stacks” like stacks of Benjamins aka hundred dollar bills? Already you can see this remake’s originality shinning through.

Annie will open in theaters nationwide this winter on December 19th. Watch a trailer for the film below and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
