In case you missed it, Fifty Shades of Grey will hit theaters this Valentine’s Day weekend, and has already set a presale tickets record for girls, guys, lovers, and friends looking to enter Christian Grey’s red room. Now, the question is whether the (seemingly disagreeable) Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson can live up to the hype. According to this review, the pair contribute to a final product that is “by turns provocative and romance-novel gooey.” Either way... we’ll be watching. [The Hollywood Reporter]

On a not-so-steamy Fifty note, Dornan visited The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and read excerpts from the book in various accents. Read: sex scenes in Scottish, red room in Russian, and cheeky exchanges in... cowboy?![YouTube]

The Barden Bellas are using a little Queen Bey to set the tone. A new trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 has premiered, with Anna KendrickRebel Wilson, and crew belting out Beyoncé’s “Run the World,” on the competition stage. Because, we all win with Bey (except at the Grammys, *cough* Beck). [Billboard]

Spider-Man will be back on the silver screen in July 2017 when Sony and Marvel unite for a reboot of the blockbuster franchise; but a key player will be missing. Andrew Garfield, star of the last two Spider-Man films, will not be reprising his role as Peter Parker. [Variety]

Taylor Swift can’t stop, won’t stop moving, and Charli XCX is joining the club. The “Boom Clap” chanteuse covered Swift’s chart-topper for BBC’s Live Lounge. Does it still get you in the sing-a-long mood? [YouTube]

From rumor to reality: Johnny Depp and his The Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard wed in an intimate ceremony on Depp’s private Bahamian island over the weekend. Ladies, you have permission to weep. [People]
