Sweet Trailer…’Fifty Shades of Grey’

Fifty Shades of Grey HeaderAvert your eyes people, the very first trailer for the adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey has hit the web. No, that first sentence isn’t to keep younger viewers from seeing what they shouldn’t. It’s just to keep you from spending 2 minutes and 34 seconds that you’ll never get back. The erotic novel has caused a stir the world over and like many books that get the big screen treatment, the film version of a popular novel most times never measures up to the ideas and images created in our heads…we’re looking at you Mommy readers.

Anyway with a cast that is seeming more agreeable to the avid fans out there we present the first look at Fifty Shades of Grey.

Literature student Anastasia Steele’s life changes forever when she meets handsome, yet tormented, billionaire Christian Grey.

Based on E.L. James’ book of the same name, Fifty Shades of Grey is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. It stars Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk and Jennifer Ehle. Focus Features and Universal Pictures has slated Fifty Shades of Grey for release next year on February 13th, 2015. Quite the Valentine’s Day pick me up, dontcha think?

    I don’t think it’s anything special, personally. I think they actually had quite a bit in the trailer that wasn’t sexual, which makes you think perhaps there is a little more to the story than just sex. However, from what I’ve heard, E.L. James says there’s going to be a lot of sex in it. Do you know if they’re making two different films, one with an R rating and one with an NC-17?

      Hadn’t heard one way or the other. But for those book fans wanting NC-17 they should probably ask themselves what kind of movie they really want to see on screen if you know what I mean;) This probably won’t be like Steve McQueen’s Shame (which is actually a superb film, content and all) and may be R because it has to appeal and be accessible to a wider audience than just fans of the novel.

        I know it probably won’t sound similar, but I think a similar issue that you brought up is appealing to a wider audience. I’m thinking of Hunger Games – personally, I would have been very curious to see an R-rated version of the film because it truly is a violent book series. Obviously with it being considered young adult, though, it needs to be capped at PG-13. So I get that in order to get the biggest possible audience, you have to change the rating. I’m wondering, since they’ll want a bigger audience other than just NC-17 viewers to attend, that they’ll make Fifty Shades rated R.
