Scary Movie veteran Marlon Wayans has set his sights on the genre of erotic romance, but that’s not to say that his latest parody of Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t a little scary.
For example, in the film’s new trailer, Kali Hawk’s face is crushed in an elevator’s doors, and Wayans goes on to show off a variety of not-so-photogenic faces at a photoshoot that ends in him mimicking Kim Kardashian’s infamous Paper Magazine cover.
But Wayans, who co-wrote the script, sees his films as more than straight parodies. “I don’t look at these movies like spoofs as much as comedic remixes,” he told EW in August. “I just find the jokes where the dramas didn’t. It’s kind of like what Kanye [West] does to old soul music; I just remix it for this generation, for people that want to see comedies.”
