If you make it, they will come.
By "it" I mean a softcore porn movie about BDSM. By "they" I mean soccer moms. And by "come" I mean come...to YouTube...to watch the trailer.
(See what I did there? I used a Field of Dreams quote to make a sex pun. Somebody give this guy a raise!)
Anyway, as you probably learned from the headline, the first trailer for the hotly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey is already the most-watched trailer of 2014. Released just five days ago, it's got a whopping 36.4 million views on YouTube, according to THR. That easily beats the 31 million views racked up by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer since March, as well as the 26.3 million racked up by Godzilla and Transformers and the 23.5 million racked up by Dumb and Dumber Too.
Does this mean Fifty Shades of Grey will beat all those other films at the box office? Yeah right. Soccer mom jokes aside, you know at least half of this trailer's came from horny young men who were just hoping to see some partial nudity. But I'm sure it still be a box office success.
Fifty Shades of Grey stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan and hits theaters February 14, 2015.
