We’ve got yet another Fifty Shades of Grey clip for you. Still no sexy time, but Jamie Dornan’s shirtless in this one, so I guess that’s something. Plus, this is a scene that clearly brings the story a step closer to the more risqué material from the book. Again, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit I’m insanely curious to see if they can pull this whole thing off in a semi-tasteful, competent manner, but these clips make me think the film will wind up falling within guilty pleasure territory, just like the book. Dornan and Dakota Johnson come across as though they’re just reading lines and don’t have much chemistry either. It could have something to do with the fact that these scenes are completely out of context, but, at this point, I’d be surprised if I walked out of my screening thinking the two of them sold a meaningful, somewhat believable relationship.
You can check out the latest Fifty Shades of Grey clip below. The film is due in theaters on February 13th and also stars Jennifer Ehle, Max Martini, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Eloise Mumford, Dylan Neal, Victor Rasuk and Callum Keith Rennie. (If you’d like to revisit the first two clips, you can find them here and here.)
