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.
