If “Fifty Shades of Grey” aroused your senses, get ready to poke them a bit too much with “Fifty Shades of Black.” The “Fifty Shades of Grey” parody will be released on January 29.


The parody may not appeal to those who love the original movie, but even so, there are some reasons why you should watch “Fifty Shades of Black.”

It is a fun movie: “Fifty Shades of Black” is a sexual comedy. The team has kept it classy, too. Female audience are taken care of as Marlon Wayans pointed out, “When you’re dealing with a female audience, it’s important that you try to walk that line — you can’t go too crazy because they have to like the guy and the girl and you have to pay the substance of the relationship some credence, even though it’s a parody.”

The Sex Scenes: Just like the original, the “Fifty Shades of Grey” parody has sex scenes. However, the scenes will be comfortable to watch. As Marlon put it, “You have to make people comfortable. Everybody has their own approach, and you just have to be aware of that and try to nurture as much as possible because at the end of the day, you just want people to be free and have fun. Get everybody out of their head, just go balls out and have fun.”

It caused some stir In Cannes: There was a bidding war in Cannes regarding “Fifty Shades of Black.” The budget of the movie is less than $5 million, but it does not look such.

The movie empowers women: Hannah, the female lead in the movie, has the edge. Marlon said, “She resets this position of how guys think they can get girls to do anything. It’s empowering for women and humbling for guys, since Christian has his comeuppance. At the end of the day, the girl always wins …It’s not a blue planet, it’s a pink planet and girls rule the world.” So, girls, it is a movie that you should definitely watch.

The “Black” guys: The movie is a contradiction of “Fifty Shades of Grey” on the grounds of skin color. The hero and heroine both are black. According to Marlon, white girls love black guys. He said, “We don’t need the toys. We can be into that, but brothers are the toys. Black guys, we got the magic.”

If you are in a dull mood or want something new, try watching the Fifty Shades of Grey parody. It will make you laugh until you cry.
