The ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Trailer Is Hysterically Horrible

The first full trailer for “Fifty Shades Freed” was released Monday morning, and it’s ridiculous.

I’m not exaggerating at all here. This movie trailer is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. Look, I understand that the target demographic for this movie is not 25 year old beer drinking football fans. That is obvious, but it’s not a good sign when people laugh during a movie trailer meant to be taken seriously.

I haven’t read any of the books, although the women I know who have are off the wall crazy, but the plot of the movie, according to the YouTube description, is: “Believing they have left behind shadowy figures from their past, newlyweds Christian and Ana fully embrace an inextricable connection and shared life of luxury. But just as she steps into her role as Mrs. Grey and he relaxes into an unfamiliar stability, new threats could jeopardize their happy ending before it even begins.”

What part of that trailer should have been taken seriously? The only part that even appeared to be interesting was when the smoke show blonde showed up a minute in, and somehow they managed to ruin any potential for her in a matter of seconds. If I’m laughing during a trailer and it’s not a comedy then somebody has failed miserably at their job. This is what it would be like if a porno tried to make a serious movie trailer. It’s that bad.

I am stunned women find this content entertaining. There’s nothing wrong with a little romance action in your movies, props to me for being man enough to admit that, but this is just lazy story telling. The plot is pretty much a creepy billionaire preys on a mentally unstable woman. Somehow that’s a romantic thriller to millions of women around the world.

Just a complete trash film saga with trash for trailers.
