It's finally here "Fifty Shades of Grey" fans! The hot new trailer of the movie adaptation of E L James' best-selling erotic novel!
NBC's "Today" show unveiled the trailer Thursday morning and Savannah Guthrie admitted that it was so hot NBC only showed a portion and did not include the bondage scenes. It's too raunchy for daytime TV watchers!
But now, you can see the trailer!
Book fans, what do you think? Did Jamie Dornan aka Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson aka Anastasia Steele embody your visualization of the characters?
And did you like Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" used in the trailer?
And will you line up at the theaters when "Fifty Shades of Grey" opens on February 13, 2015? Just in time to make your Valentine's Day extra saucy!
Here's the trailer for "Fifty Shades of Grey!"

In homage to the upcoming "Hercules," movies.com has unearthed a clip featuring a very young Ryan Gosling starring as "Young Hercules" back in the late 1990s. In this funny clip, he gets a wedgie! Stars will definitely do anything to pay their dues including reciting horrible lines. Still, this one is campy and cheesy and just right! The Gos has come a long way!

Experiencing everything that Portland, Oregon has to offer for the first time was quite magical which made it even more whimsical when I visited LAIKA, the home of "Coraline," "ParaNorman," and the upcoming "The Boxtrolls!"
Nestled within the agrarian roots of Hillsboro, LAIKA is housed inside a giant warehouse populated by creative folks, craftsmen, and CEO, leader, guru, head animator, and all-around nice guy, Travis Knight. He's such a down-to-earth guy and a fun communicator that I just had to take a picture with him in front of the Cheesebridge Market Place backdrop used in "The Boxtrolls."
The whole visit was devoted to LAIKA's edgy brand and of course, "The Boxtrolls." Based on "Here Be Monsters" by Alan Snow, we saw a few clips from the film, some from Act 1 and some from Act 2. They also showed us a LAIKA featurette which I hoped will be available to us soon so I can post it here!
We toured the whole compound, talked to various department heads -- costumes, art, computers (oh my gosh, their 3D printer is phenomenal) -- and experienced the magical brand called LAIKA.
I even interviewed the sweet and funny Isaac Hempstead-Wright who voices Eggs, the lead character in "The Boxtrolls." Hempstead-Wright is also in the popular HBO show, "Game of Thrones" as Bran Stark.
I will post the video of my LAIKA visit as soon as it's made available. But for now, watch "The Boxtrolls" trailer by clicking here. I can't wait to see the animated wonder in full when it comes out in theaters on September 26!

I've been a busy bee all week! First, I went to the Desert Ice Castle in Cathedral City, CA to take a look at their fundraising effort called "Hot Summer Ice Show!" It's cool to cool off in the middle of the summer in the hot, hot desert!
And then, I cooled off my singing voice to take a look at "Seussical the Musical" playing at Palm Canyon Theatre in Palm Springs! I met Cat in the Hat and Horton! I love them both! This play is not only for the young, but for the young at heart as well!
