Here’s the 2nd Trailer for If I Stay!

If I Stay

In the future, I think 2014 will be remembered as a good year for those of us who like to cry at the movies.  And, as evidence to help prove my point, here’s the 2nd trailer for If I Stay, the upcoming adaptation of Gayle Forman’s excellent and emotional 2009 novel.  This film, directed by R.J. Cutler and starring Chloe Grace Moretz, will be opening on August 22nd.

Trailer: Fifty Shades of Grey


A few months ago, I was talking to an online acquaintance when I made the mistake of referring to Fifty Shades of Grey as being “Fifty Shades of Fanfic.”  I thought I was making a perfectly valid point because, as we all know, the book started out as a piece of Twilight fanfic and, even more importantly, it reads like really bad (albeit sexy) fanfic.  The person I was talking to however … Oh.  My.  God.  You would have thought that I had just said the worst, most inflammatory thing in the history of offensive statements.  Before I knew it, I had been blocked on twitter and unfriended on Facebook, which I have to admit really upset me because her unfriending me left me with an odd number of Facebook friends and, as our regular readers know, Lisa doesn’t do odd numbers.

But anyway, my point is that Fifty Shades of Grey may not have been great literature but a lot of people feel very strongly about it.  And even those of us who may view dismissively the book’s prose will probably still end up seeing the movie when it’s released next year.

Below, you’ll find the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, which promises the audience a very hot Valentine’s Day in 2015.  In short, this trailer follows in the proud tradition set by the trailer for Endless Love.
