'Fifty Shades of Black' Trailer Is Even More Ridiculous Than We Expected (VIDEO)

It was only a matter of time before someone spoofed the intense, over-the-top sex and drama that is all of Fifty Shades of Grey — and who better than Marlon Wayans? The official trailer for Fifty Shades of Black has been released, and both fans and non-fans of EL James's wildly successful trilogy will get a kick out of how Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele are portrayed.

In the film, which will be released on Jan. 26, 2016, Wayans plays Christian Black, a wealthy and powerful businessman who owns a helicopter, wears nice suits, and has a shameful secret (he had to strip to make ends meet). He also becomes completely possessive and obsessed with Kali Hawk's "Hannah." Sound familiar?

It looks like Wayans borrowed quite a few scenes straight from Fifty Shades, including the opening elevator scene, Christian at the piano, and Ana and Christian's hot elevator make-out scene. Of course, the comedian put his own twist on things, so don't expect to swoon:

More from The Stir: New 'Fifty Shades'-Inspired Movie Might Be Better Than the Original!

I'm loving the way they poke fun at Ana and Christian's serious conversations and the way they recklessly abandon their responsibilities to find passion in an elevator and whenever and wherever else the mood strikes. In real life, a billionaire would likely have to file bankruptcy in one year's time if he shifted his entire focus on stalking a young woman.

The timing for this film couldn't be better: it will fill in the gap between this year and next, when we'll all be prepping for the release of Fifty Shades Darker, where we'll get to enjoy more examples of overwrought love scenes that border on the psychotic. For now, bring on the parodies!
