Animators recreate the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer in Lego form

If you have a working internet connection, then there’s a fairly strong chance that you will have come across the official Fifty Shades of Grey trailer. Evidently, animators Antonio and Andrea Toscano did, as the pair have recreated it in Lego.

The video, which lasts for just over two minutes, sees miniature plastic versions of the characters Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele enact key moments from the film, including the newspaper interview, a kissy kissy scene and yes, a wee bit of bondage.

The real Fifty Shades movie, which stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, is being released on Valentine’s Day (because you know, it’s rather raunchy), but this Lego trailer is available to view online now.

  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle

Despite its troubling gender politics and distinct lack of plot, the likeable Johnson brings nuance and charm to a paper-thin character; Dornan manages to offer a hint of humanity; and given the many constraints, this sleek, fairly trim and occasionally sensual adaptation is the best imaginable outcome.
