If you were at home chilling and watching the Golden Globes last night (like most of us—it’s OK, you don’t need to hide your shame), you probably saw this new TV spot for ‘50 Shades of Grey.’ And if you actually have a life and better things to do, then you did not see the latest TV spot for what will undoubtedly be the most ridiculous movie this year. Prove us wrong, guys. Prove. Us. Wrong.

That 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2' trailer almost stole some thunder tonight because I pretty much forgot that we were getting a brand, uh, spanking new, Beyoncé-accompanied trailer for '50 Shades of Grey.' Shady move, Blart. The second full trailer for the upcoming adaptation of the popular 'Twilight' fan-fiction erotica novel is here, so let's break it down, shall we?

We won’t know exactly how graphic ‘50 Shades of Grey’ is going to be until we see the film with our own cursed eyeballs, but we now officially know that the film has been given an R-rating by the pearl-clutching members of the MPAA. What does that R-rating stand for? Graphic nudity, “strong sexual content,” and “unusual behavior.” Wait, what the hell is unusual behavior?!

2015 is going to be such a great year for movies—so great, in fact, that we couldn’t even narrow down our list of next year’s most anticipated films to just 10; we chose 25 instead (we’re loose cannons around here). But forget what we want. What are the most anticipated films according to moviegoing consumers like you, dear reader? A new poll reveals the top five most highly anticipated films of 2015, and the answers probably aren’t that surprising … but at least one of them is.

'50 Shades of Grey' TV Spot Has Already Started Preparing for Valentine's Day, Is Maybe a Little Clingy

Isn’t it just a little early to start thinking about Valentine’s Day? When you see your neighbors put out their Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving, don’t you do a bit of a combo eyeroll-cringe? ‘50 Shades of Grey’ doesn’t seem to think it’s too early to start thinking about Valentine’s Day, and has already released its first TV spot to remind you that the holiday is approaching (in a few months), and if it’s Valentine’s Day, it’s ‘50 Shades of Grey.’

'50 Shades of Grey' Won't Feature Any Male Nudity, So Who Is This Movie For Anyway?

One of the great celebratory moments of 2014 was seeing Ben Affleck nude in 'Gone Girl' (and a little bit of Neil Patrick Harris too, if you were paying attention). It's not as if us women are male-nudity-starved, craven maniacs just salivating for a glimpse of wang or something, but with all the rampant female nudity and objectification that permeates pop culture, it's nice to see a little equality. So it's disheartening to hear that Jamie Dornan will not be appearing fully nude in '50 Shades of Grey,' as if that movie needed another reason to be avoided.

Is '50 Shades of Grey' Reshooting Scenes Due to Lack of Chemistry?

We knew that an adaptation of '50 Shades of Grey' probably wouldn't be as explicit as the book on which it's based, even though the book is hardly as sexy as your mom insists it is between sips of boxed wine. And the first trailer didn't do much to convince us of the supposed sexiness, either. A new report indicates that the film is currently undergoing reshoots due to a rumored lack of chemistry between leads Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. So yeah, maybe that's it.

There's little denying that Helen Mirren seems like she's got all the answers -- how to make it in Hollywood, how to age gracefully, how to say salty things without coming off as crass, etc. -- so it should come as no surprise that 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon turned to her for some guidance on last night's show ... with costumes, of course.

Here's how you know that you've got a real cultural phenomenon on your hands: when you don't even need to call it by its correct name, and everyone still knows what you're talking about. Such is the case with the E.L. James book '50 Shades of Grey,' which will soon be a movie called, well, '50 Shades of Grey.' Wait, '50 Shapes of Grape'? What did you say? It doesn't matter, you still know what we're talking about here.
