**The first teaser trailer for Fifty Shades Freed was released yesterday, and shows a little bit of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele’s wedding!

The final installment of the trilogy based on E.L. James’ best-selling books sees Christian (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) tie the knot but things quickly take a dangerous turn. The one-minute-long teaser, which was released on Anastasia’s birthday, features the tagline “Mrs. Grey will see you now,” and opens with the couple exchanging vows.

The film will be released on Valentine’s Day 2018.

Home Again“, starring Reese Witherspoon, was second, opening with just $9 million.

**Kristen Bell was filming a movie in Orlando, and wasn’t able to evacuate for Hurricane Irma in time, so she got stuck at her hotel. That’s when she saw a Tweet from her “Frozen” co-star Josh Gad, who plays Olaf the snowman.

He said his parents, his brothers, his sister-in-law, his niece, and his nephew were stuck in Florida too, so she got them a room at her hotel.

Josh Tweeted, quote, “They don’t make them like this girl. Thank you Kristen. You are truly an angel sent from above.”

Kristen also went to a shelter and sang a song from “Frozen”.

**John Mayer has no shame in hitting on women via social media. Remember just last month he tried to score a date with music producer David Foster’s daughter by flirting with her in the comments of an Instagram post.

Well on Friday, John Tweeted, “I spend an inordinate amount of time per day wondering if Nicki Minaj would like me or not.”

And Nicki flirted right back, saying, quote, “Would my body be your wonderland?”

Which apparently left John speechless, because he replied, quote, “Please hold, losing my [stuff]. This isn’t my reply yet.”

That was Friday, and we still haven’t seen a reply…

 

**Beyonce and her mom Tina were in Houston over the weekend serving food to Hurricane Harvey survivors

And it may have not been the outcome that Texans fans wanted at the game yesterday, but if you were wondering…JJ Watt’s Houston Relief Fund is currently sitting at $31 million.

 

**Bruno Mars is bringing his 24K Magic to a TV near you. Us Weekly reports that he filmed a TV special in New York City yesterday.

A source told Us exclusively that Mars is shooting a top-secret network TV special, performing a special show at the Apollo Theater.

“He will shoot the show two times in front of two different audiences,” the source tells Us. “It’s straight-out music with interview segments to be spliced in, like the Adele concert [that ran on NBC last year].”
