73 Thoughts We Had While Watching the New '50 Shades Darker' Trailer
IB Times

1. Ooh, Christian viewing fireworks over a lake. How patriotic.

2. Oh, Valentine's day. I wonder if this is going to be a romance film.

3. A gift wrapped in gray. Just a coincidence, I'm sure.

4. Okay, trying to forget the past, but instead thinking about what I had for breakfast this morning.

5. Grey puts on a black mask, so we have no idea who he is. Is this a metaphor for how inaccessible his emotions are?

6. Slip into what? I'm already wearing clothes. A pool? A hot tub? That does sound nice.

7. I want to go swimming.

8. Black stilettos and long scan up sexy lady leg. My brain has officially registered the sexual tension meant to draw me to this movie. Thanks for letting me know, filmmakers.

9. Maybe I'll go online shopping. I don't have any black heels.

10. "Something a bit darker." But I'm already wearing black, which is darker than grey, Christian. You should know because Grey is your last name, which is totally just another coincidence. The title has "Grey in it" and you are Christian GREY.

11. "Intrigued?" This has definitely happened before...

12. What are they looking at? Is there another torture room? Are they playing Bloody Mary?

13. He just put that mask on, and now it's back in the gift box. Was that a magic trick, or is the concept of two masks furthering the metaphor?

14. Close up of Anastasia putting on a gray mask may also be furthering the metaphor. Because he's wearing a black mask, which would mean she pales in comparison. Or her innocence?


16. Wait, didn't she totally ditch him at the end of the last one? Why is she with him? Did I miss a sequel?

17. Christian wants her back. Wasn't she literally just with him at the renaissance fair? I must have missed something.

18. Aww, white roses. Another super creative metaphor for Ana's innocence.

19. Beyonce's Crazy in Love is playing, just like in the first trailer. But this time, she's not singing it. That's definitely a bad sign.

20. "I had no idea what this was going to become." You are alone there, Christian.

21. Ana needs a haircut.

22. Ana, you don't see how your volatile relationship with Christian can work? Don't you know you're in a corny romance?

23. Oh my goodness, Christian! You scared me. Don't be standing behind me like that at an art gallery opening. I have to tell my boyfriend that all the time.

24. *GASP* It's Anastasia's art show! There's a GREYscale photo of her behind her. Ha

25. We're gawking too, Christian, but only because we're trying to figure out this plot line.

26. Why is she wearing clothes in the shower? Why are they BOTH wearing clothes in the shower?

27. Flowers, flowers, flowers, flowers, flowers.

28. Fireworks, but this time Christian isn't alone. Daw. Is THAT the plotline?

29. I think we all know what she wants, Christian.

30. Sexy man doing chin ups. I feel like I'm being brainwashed, like...Pavlov style.

31. I bet that's the only chin-up he can do unassisted.

32. What was that sequence of scenes trying to say?

33. Followed by big sailboat.

34. Sailing. Omg I just remembered that Daenerys Targaryen is sailing for King's Landing as we speak. YASSSSSSSSSS KHALEESI.

35. Why do we have to wait until next summer for Game of Thrones?

36. I am definitely being brainwashed.

37. "This time, no rules." On a sailboat, though? Isn't that a safety hazard?

38. "No punishments." Other than this movie.

39. I wonder how much it would cost to get a sailboat license.

40. Ana is wearing a ballerina bun. Maybe this film is actually about her exploring her identity and long lost childhood dream of being a dancer.

41. I can't wait for Ellen to parody this trailer.

42. Does my gym offer ballet lessons?

43. Never mind.

44. Oh, I see. The white bow and ballerina bun are just there for the redundant metaphor for Christian's destruction of her innocence. Literally. The bow was just undone.

45. "No more secrets." In other words, there will DEFINITELY be more secrets.

46. Christian, you better put a sock on that door before you close it.

47. There is a woman in the kitchen, AKA a threat to Ana's already fragile trust towards Christian. Or just a ghost.

48. 50 Shades "Darker" actually might imply a supernatural element.

49. Nah, it's just poor titling.

50. The way these scenes keep fading to black, you'd think the trailer creators just tossed some random scenes together with a Beyonce cover to make it look like something interesting. But what do I know?

51. That old lady looks that Christian just glared at and Ana stalked away from is like a AHS third season Jessica Lange knockoff, except not nearly as hot.

52. No, no, no, mister. Do not pin Ana to the door that way in such a threatening manner just to pave the way for Christian's valiant rescue/undeniable proof that he loves her.

53. This is definitely a horror adaptation. That man just silenced her with his finger.

54. Uh oh, Ana looks PISSED.

55. There are so many shiny black Audis coming out of that parking garage. Must be the president. Glad to know the secret service is there for the important things.

56. Christian's bow tie is undone. He must have gotten into a fight, but came out 100% unscathed. Maybe he hit someone with his Audi.

57. No, his driver did.

58. This just turned into a Law & Order episode real fast. Send in Mariska Hartigay!

59. As if she has time for this. Now THERE'S a BAMF.

60. I think the trailer music is skipping.

61. Helicopter crash...onto Isla Nubar. PLOT TWIST: it's the new Jurassic Park movie!

62. Ana! There's a creepy dude in a mask behind you! It may or may not be the same guy that came onto you in your workplace. He's wearing a mask, so no one knows.

63. Yes Ana, run into his arms from the scary stalker guy. How convenient that Christian just happens to be standing outside your workplace. There's no irony here.

64. Seriously, for a movie franchise that makes so much money, they can't fix the trailer music?

65. "Do you think you're the first woman who's tried to save him?" No, but she'll be the first to succeed. Muahahahaha.

66. Is that creepy chick in the kitchen a ghost? She looks dead.

67. This must be a modern twist on A Christmas Carol, where the ghost of Ana's future is like "RUN!"

68. Can someone please tell me if this is a horror movie or not?

69. I wonder how much they had to pay Danny Elfman to do this film score.

70. Couldn't they just pick a different song, though?

71. I do not know how this movie is different from the first one, other than the "darker" color scheme.

72. The good news is that this movie will just reinforce the idea that women are the solution to the tortured minds of possessive, messed up men.

73. Honestly, this makes me miss Twilight, and I am seriously concerned what that means for my mental and emotional health

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

I don't need to feel bad about myself because of who I follow on social media.


Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
