If you’re wondering what could make a film adaptation of romance best seller Fifty Shades of Grey more tolerable, may we suggest Lego?

There’s been much Internet chatter about the chemistry, or lack thereof, between lead actors Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. The Lego version carries just about the same amount of heat with a shot-by-shot recreation of the trailer. Yes, that even includes the Red Room of Pain.

Fifty Shades of Grey, the human version, hits theaters Feb 13. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for a full movie remake as soon as possible. Until then, you can keep entertained with YouTuber Antonio Toscano’s other Lego trailer remakes, including Captain America, Iron Man, and even a version of the infamous YouTube viral First Kiss video in Lego style.
