It seems like just when the hoopla dies down a little bit on ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘, something happens, like the first full length trailer hitting, that gets everyone back into that frenzy again. The book was that thing that nearly everyone was talking about, but I could never really tell if they had read it or not. The fervent ones you could tell, but the casual people talking about it probably thought Adrian Lyne’s ‘Nine 1/2 Weeks’ was much more interesting.
After reading a little bit of the book, I wound up going back to watch Mickey Rourke and Kim Bassinger go at it, and it was way more interesting to me with all the levels and depths the film covered. The book was provocative enough, but it just felt a little forced…funny, I know since their is plenty of submission in it. Many of you who’ll remember ‘The Red Shoe Diaries’ will feel a little deja vu when you check the trailer below.
For anyone who doesn’t know what the book series is about, it’s pretty simple: The story revolves around Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and her introduction to a whole new world of sexual discovery and risqué activities in the hands of billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). The film also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Jennifer Ehle, Max Martini, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Eloise Mumford, Dylan Neal, Victor Rasuk, and Callum Keith Rennie. ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ slips into theaters February 14, 2015 so you already know what you’ll be doing next Valentine’s Day.
Here’s a few new images from the trailer to enjoy your private time with. These are all hi-res images so if you push on them, they’ll big rather quickly.
This feels like a film that is going to enjoy some levels of camp and director Sam Taylor-Johnson has shot this film beautifully to set the tone and feel for the film. It’ll easily do some killer business at the box office, so don’t be surprised for the next book to get rushed to the big screen.
