While it's normally sci-fi or fantasy blockbusters like The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug or Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy that get fans excited enough to create LEGO versions of the film's trailers, this time we the building brick is used for an anticipated movie of another kind. Fifty Shades of Grey is coming next weekend, and it's going to make some huge bank. So Antonio Toscano thought it was a good idea to give the erotic romance its own LEGO trailer as well. It's very well done, but also pretty funny, if only because watching two LEGO minifigures kiss, let alone tease the intense bondage scenes. Watch below!
Here's the LEGO trailer for Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey (via Phil Lord):
And just for good measure, here's a parody of a scene from "SNL" star Vanessa Bayer:
Fifty Shades of Grey is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) and written by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks), based on E.L. James' very popular, best-selling novel. The story follows an impending college graduate named Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), who strikes up an S&M romance with successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), the physical and emotional dominant to her submissive personality. The cast also features Luke Grimes as Grey's brother, Victor Rasuk as Steele's close friend, and Jennifer Ehle as her mother. Focus Features and Universal will release the film on February 13th, 2015.
