In disappointing but totally expected news, the upcoming film adaptation of ‘50 Shades of Grey’ will not include the notorious (disturbing, hilarious, and absolutely batsh— insane) tampon scene from E.L. James’ wildly popular erotica novel. For those of you hoping to see the most absurd moment from the book translated to the big screen, director Sam Taylor-Johnson has put her foot down.
Not long ago we brought you the trailer for ‘Cymbeline,’ the upcoming dark ‘n gritty contemporary take on the William Shakespeare play of the same name—well, not anymore. ‘Cymbeline’ has been given the new title ‘Anarchy,’ which doesn’t really scream “Shakespeare,” though it does sound like a pretty cool title if you’re living on the edge in high school in 1996.
If you were at home chilling and watching the Golden Globes last night (like most of us—it’s OK, you don’t need to hide your shame), you probably saw this new TV spot for ‘50 Shades of Grey.’ And if you actually have a life and better things to do, then you did not see the latest TV spot for what will undoubtedly be the most ridiculous movie this year. Prove us wrong, guys. Prove. Us. Wrong.
We won’t know exactly how graphic ‘50 Shades of Grey’ is going to be until we see the film with our own cursed eyeballs, but we now officially know that the film has been given an R-rating by the pearl-clutching members of the MPAA. What does that R-rating stand for? Graphic nudity, “strong sexual content,” and “unusual behavior.” Wait, what the hell is unusual behavior?!
Isn’t it just a little early to start thinking about Valentine’s Day? When you see your neighbors put out their Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving, don’t you do a bit of a combo eyeroll-cringe? ‘50 Shades of Grey’ doesn’t seem to think it’s too early to start thinking about Valentine’s Day, and has already released its first TV spot to remind you that the holiday is approaching (in a few months), and if it’s Valentine’s Day, it’s ‘50 Shades of Grey.’
That 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2' trailer almost stole some thunder tonight because I pretty much forgot that we were getting a brand, uh, spanking new, Beyoncé-accompanied trailer for '50 Shades of Grey.' Shady move, Blart. The second full trailer for the upcoming adaptation of the popular 'Twilight' fan-fiction erotica novel is here, so let's break it down, shall we?
We knew that an adaptation of '50 Shades of Grey' probably wouldn't be as explicit as the book on which it's based, even though the book is hardly as sexy as your mom insists it is between sips of boxed wine. And the first trailer didn't do much to convince us of the supposed sexiness, either. A new report indicates that the film is currently undergoing reshoots due to a rumored lack of chemistry between leads Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. So yeah, maybe that's it.
While there won't be a '50 Shades of Grey' panel at Comic-Con 2014, that's not keeping Universal from getting in on the festivities -- and getting it on with the first official trailer for their upcoming adaptation of the first novel in the steamy trilogy by E.L. James. Get your whips and handcuffs ready 'cause Mr. Grey is ready to see you now.
Well, it's not 'Twilight,' but '50 Shades of Grey' was certainly inspired by it. Universal's upcoming BDSM romance, adapted from author E.L. James' bestselling and extremely explicit novel, will arrive in 2015, and the first look at its two stars has arrived.
At long last, our national nightmare is over: Universal and Focus Features have found their leads for the upcoming adaptation of '50 Shades of Grey.' Dakota Johnson of 'The Social Network' has been cast as Anastasia Steele, the college student who enters into a dominant/submissive relationship with enigmatic businessman Christian Grey because fairy tales do come true, or something. Charlie Hunnam of 'Pacific Rim' and 'Sons of Anarchy' will play Christian.
