Crack open a window and cool yourself down, for the latest titillating Fifty Shades of Grey trailer has finally arrived.
The 2-minute, 10-second clip - similar to the one released earlier this year but with added ice cubes - reveals Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) developing their deep and dangerous attraction, before he takes her to... The Red Room of Pain.
We attempt to interpret the trailer below:
It starts with an insight into Christian Grey's (Jamie Dornan) obsessive and slightly warped mind with just a view of his sterile wardrobe full of identical shirts and blazers...
... in stark contrast to Anastasia Steele's (Dakota Johnson) twee cupboard full of Laura Ashely floral shirts and preppy jumpers.
The man's a powerful, sophisticated businessman who will only wear a variation of grey-coloured ties. He is, after all, what the colour grey is said to represent - unemotional and detached. »

Even with another flood of specialty film debuts, The Skeleton Twins, the dramedy starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, had another impressive box office showing in its third weekend. Meanwhile, another dozen films tried to elbow past last week’s 14 newcomers and numerous others already in the market, to middling success among those reporting.
Other than Twins, the holdovers that look like they’re gaining some autumnal momentum include IFC Films‘ The Trip To Italy with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, and more niche-oriented films such as American Experience/PBS Films’ doc Last Days In Vietnam and Oscilloscope’s Art And Craft. Starz Media also scored a robust gross for the second week of Not Cool, featuring YouTube star Shane Dawson, as it migrated east to New York and was also profiled on a Starz channel doc series.
CBS Films’ Pride can be proud of scoring the weekend’s highest average among new titles. »

XLrator Media will open Jimi: All Is By My Side focusing on the artist’s life in London in nearly three dozen theaters, while Samuel Goldwyn Films will bow faith-centered The Song in over 300 theaters, the biggest number of runs for a limited release newcomer this week.

Jerry Remy probably thought he'd seen everything after 25 years of broadcasting Boston Red Sox games for Nesn, but then his tooth fell out while he was on the air. The 61-year-old color commentator and former pro player's first instinct was to hold the tooth up for the cameras and giggle like a little school boy. In fact, the clip shows the two of them joking about the dental disaster for over five minutes. See video: Baseball Broadcaster Makes Call on Home Run – and the Catch “This is a first. You've lost a lot during games, but you've never lost a tooth, »
