The preview parodies several of Fifty Shades of Grey's famous scenes, including Ana's (Dakota Johnson) interview with Christian (Jamie Dornan) and Christian spanking Anna. The trailer also spoofs Kim Kardashian's Paper magazine cover and Magic Mike XXL.

Fifty Shades of Black is directed by Michael Tiddes, with whom Wayans collaborated on A Haunted House and its sequel. The movie opens on Jan. 29 and also features Marissa D'Onofrio, Tina Grimm, Kate Miner and Jane Seymour.

Fifty Shades of Grey is based on the E.L. James erotic novel of the same name, and opened in theaters in February. The story follows the relationship between college student Ana and BDSM-loving businessman Christian. The sequel Fifty Shades Darker will open in 2017.
