Fifty Shades of Entertainment
After much anticipation and plenty of hot gossip, the official trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey is finally here! NBC’s Today released the first look at the film adaption of E.L. James’ novel of the same name Thursday morning, eliciting a huge response from fans. The film starts Jamie Dornan as dark and handsome Christian Grey, and Dakota Johnson as sweet and shy Anastasia Steele. Both Dornan and Johnson made an appearance on Today to promote the trailer’s unveiling. The trailer shows Dornan’s Christian Grey seducing a shy, college student Steele and introducing her to his many “interests.” The sneak peek also features an exclusive, slowed down version of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love.” Though the film was originally scheduled to hit theaters next month, it’s been pushed back until February 13, 2015. http://youtu.be/z4nJX8snP4s
This week, Forbes announced its latest list of the top earning celebrities, and for the second year in a row, Robert Downey Jr. took the top honors with an estimated salary of $75 million over the past year.

Second on the list was former wrestler, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, with an estimated $52 million, thanks to his work in movies like the Fast and Furious franchise. Bradley Cooper, who is set to star in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, came in 3rd, with an estimated $46 million in earnings, and Wolf of Wall Street star, Leonardo DiCaprio rounded out the top four with an estimated $39 million in earnings.
Earlier this week, Zoe Saldana announced her pregnancy, but multiple sources now confirm that there’s not just one, but two babies on the way for the actress. The 36-year-old Guardians of the Galaxy star and her husband of on year, Italian artist Marco Perego are pregnant with twins! Though the two bundles of joy are expected to be born later this year, Saldana won’t have much time to nest at home before their birth. The actress will be busy promoting her role in Guardians of the Galaxy, due in theaters later this month, and then is signed on to complete three Avatar sequels, which will start shooting in 2015. Congratulations to both Perego and Saldana, and good luck as they begin their journey in parenthood!
