The ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Honest Trailer Gives a Good, Hard Spanking

The safe word is “MOM PORN” in Screen Junkies’ inevitable if not quite brutal enough takedown of “Fifty Shades of Grey.” This happens to be the 100th episode of Honest Trailers, and they timed it well to tackle the easy target of “Fifty Shades,” which is coming out on DVD this Friday . Teenage girls around the world made Twilight into a global phenomenon. Now it’s Mom’s turn as the ridiculous fantasy of dating a vampire is cast aside for the ridiculous fantasy of being a gorgeous billionaire’s pampered sex slave.” The five minute video does make a good butt plug reference, but mostly it just yawns at how boring the movie turned out to be (e-mails! contracts!) instead of kinky. But you should watch it for the new lyrics to Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” remix. (“I wish somebody would tase me right now/this story’s about as sexy as rabies right now.”) Whoever wrote that parody song should write the script for the next movie

Ian McKellen Is an Aging Sherlock in the ‘Mr. Holmes’ Trailer

The new film “Mr. Holmes” is a fresh take on the Sherlock Holmes character known the world over, which picks up with the famous detective years after the height of his fame, as he’s grappling with aging and one last, seemingly unsolvable case. Ian McKellen plays the titular character, who sneers at depictions of his life on the big screen and denies ever donning a deerstalker cap or smoking a pipe (he prefers cigars, thank you very much). Yet despite the legend that he’s become, Holmes still can’t shake the last case of his career, one he failed to solve and which haunts him daily

Watch Samantha Bee’s Emotional ‘Daily Show’ Goodbye

Like host Jon Stewart, “The Daily Show” correspondent Samantha Bee is also leaving the Comedy Central series, and her final episode aired Thursday night. Stewart marked the occasion with a sweet speech praising Bee’s talents, calling her a “delightful, incredibly funny person” and noting that her departure marked the “end of an era” for the show. Bee was “The Daily Show”‘s longest-running correspondent, after joining the satirical series in 2003. A clip reel of some of Bee’s best moments from her time on “Daily” revealed just why she’ll be missed so much, including her repeated visits to the Republican National Convention, her uncomfortable attempts to discuss race relations, and getting a penis pump stuck to her face. Bee made only a brief appearance herself during the episode, walking out to cheers from the audience, crying as she and Stewart shared a big hug

Amy Schumer’s ‘Girl You Don’t Need Makeup’ Sparks Social Media Movement

Amy Schumer has struck yet another chord when it comes to feminist commentary , and this time, she’s inspired a social media campaign, too. On the latest episode of her Comedy Central series ” Inside Amy Schumer ,” the comedian parodied silly boyband songs that implore women to take off their makeup and revel in their natural beauty. Of course, the tune, “Girl You Don’t Need Makeup,” eventually devolves into the four teenyboppers quickly realizing that they don’t actually like the way their lady looks without cosmetics, and morphs into a series of digs at her appearance. Lines like “You’ll be the hottest girl in the nation with just a touch of foundation” and “Just a little mascara will make you look human” (as well as a reference to “the ghost from ‘The Ring'”) reveal the harsh truth behind impossible beauty standards: natural is fine, provided you look like a supermodel to begin with; otherwise, pass the blush. Schumer took to Twitter before Tuesday night’s show aired and invited fans to post their own makeup-free selfies with the hashtag #girlyoudontneedmakeup .

‘Black Mass’ Trailer: Johnny Depp Is Terrifying As Whitey Bulger

The first trailer for “Black Mass,” the story of notorious South Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, features a stunning transformation from Johnny Depp , who plays the mob boss with such terrifying conviction that it’s hard to look the character in the eye. The clip begins innocently enough, as Whitey sits down for a delicious steak dinner with some pals. He raves about the meal, asking about the marinade, which is deemed a “family secret.” But Bulger keeps pushing, until finally his friend gives up the recipe, and that’s when the pleasant conversation turns deadly serious.

Depp dives into a monologue about the importance of keeping secrets, and how easily — like the recipe — they can be given up (and he could be sent to prison), which plays over a montage of some of his worst misdeeds.
