More than a year and a half after the project was announced, the Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer hit the web last week, and it did not disappoint.

Well, unless you're an actual BDSM enthusiast, in which case you are probably LOLing at Christian Grey. But for the fans of the book? Gracious!

Whips and Handcuffs!
Christian prepares to WORK Ana like you'd expect in a marvelous GIF from the Fifty Shares of Grey trailer.

While certainly titillating on some level, the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer definitely brings the cheese factor, not dissimilarly to the source material by E.L. James.

Let's be honest: Even if you love the books, they aren't exactly literary masterpieces. Guilty pleasures, for darn sure, but heavy on the melodrama.

From what we've gleaned from this trailer, the movie looks like it will be no different when it hits theaters in February. Here's a scene-by-scene breakdown:

0:00: We first meet Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, an impressionable, innocent college graduate who interviews Christian for a newspaper and may or may not know what Google is.

0:12: "Mr. Grey will see you now," Christian's possible cyborg secretary tells Ana. Mr. Grey, meanwhile, stares out his window, brooding in contemplative silence.

0:25: Watching Christian pace around his office, Ana is clearly taken with this mysterious, powerful figure, commenting on how polite and intimidating he is.

0:40: Explaining that she's, like, so simple, Ana says, "Look at me." Christian replies, "I am." You have NO IDEA what he's thinking about doing to her, too.

0:52: The elevator doors close. Slowly, for added suspense.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters stateside this weekend. Down Under, however, the film has a slightly more resonant release date: September 11, 2014.

That may not seem like a big deal - many films have been released on 9/11 in the 13 years since the tragedy that claimed thousands of lives contributed to the start of two devastating wars.

In the case of Ninja Turtles, however, the unfortunate choice of poster art revealed on Twitter today has prompted many to demand that the studio responsible re-think its promotions strategy:

"So who's getting fired for this poster art?" wrote one Twitter user in a statement that seemed to echo the sentiments of thousands.

"Prepare to gasp at the most poorly judged poster and date combo imaginable," tweeted another.

Ever since the first trailer for Lucy hit the Internet back in April, we've been eagerly awaiting the Luc Besson-helmed sci-fi/action flick.

After all, it features Scarlett Johansson as a super human drug mule. How can it not be awesome?

Lucy finally hits theaters today, and we're happy to report that reviews have been mostly positive, though some critics apparently found the premise and over-the-top shoot-'em-up scenes to be too ridiculous to take seriously. 

Here's what the taste-makers are saying:

"An outlandishly entertaining mixture of high silliness and high style." - David Edelstein

"A sci-fi yarn that ponders the meaning of time and the importance of evolution while occasionally throwing in some shootouts." - James Berardinelli
