by     Posted 15 days ago


It’s actually been three months since our last Fifty Shades of Grey article.  Perhaps that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering the film is still three months away, but after all that casting nonsense, I expected Focus Features to ride this out Hunger Games style and keep the buzz going up until the release.  However, now that I say that, odds are, after the new trailer drops next week, we’ll probably be getting promo after promo of Jamie Dornan looking dapper yet miserable leading up to the release.

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY Trailer and Images: Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan Get Kinky

by     Posted 120 days ago


Focus Features and Universal Pictures have released the first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer and images for director Sam Taylor-Johnson’s (Nowhere Boy) adaptation of the provocative E.L. James book.  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 trailer looks like it could easily be for a softcore porn on Cinemax or a serial killer thriller (though maybe I’m getting the latter vibe because I know Dornan from The Fall), and it gets so ridiculous that you just have to laugh.  I assume the camp is part of its charm, and I will say that visually Taylor-Johnson has found a rather striking tone for the pic.  Regardless of what those unfamiliar with James’ source material might think, the film is probably going to make fans (and Focus/Universal) very happy.

by     Posted 1 year, 6 days ago


While genre fans are understandably eager to hear anything and everything about Star Wars, Batman vs. Superman, and pretty much all the upcoming Marvel movies, there’s an in-development project of a different sort that’s generating an incredibly high amount of buzz as well: Fifty Shades of Grey.  The feature film adaptation of E.L. James’ racy novel has been in the works for over a year now, but with a director (Sam Taylor-Johnson) and cast (Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson) finally set, production is gearing up to begin in just a few weeks.  In fact, the first images of Dornan and Johnson in character were released by EW a few days ago.

Steve recently sat down for an extended interview with producer Dana Brunetti, and during their wide-ranging conversation he spoke extensively about Fifty Shades of Grey.  Brunetti discussed the competitive process of landing the job as the film’s producer along with his partner Michael De Luca, collaborating with James, the difficult casting process, why they’re filming in Vancouver, and he talked about the possibility of releasing an NC-17 cut of the film in theaters.  Hit the jump for much more.

First Look at FIFTY SHADES OF GREY’s Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson; Release Date Pushed to February 13, 2015

by     Posted 1 year, 8 days ago


Following a rather lengthy development period, the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally off and running.  The adaptation of the sultry E.L. James novel was thrown a curveball when Charlie Hunnam abruptly dropped out of the male lead role, leaving director Sam Taylor-Johnson scrambling to find a replacement with an August 2014 release date looming.  The Fall actor Jamie Dornan was eventually cast as Hunnam’s replacement opposite Dakota Johnson (Ben & Kate), but now Universal has understandably pushed the film’s release date back a few months.  Instead of going head-to-head with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014, Fifty Shades of Grey will steam up movie theater screens on February 13, 2015.  Happy Valentine’s Day!

In anticipation of production beginning very soon, the first images of Dornan and Johnson in character as the book’s sex-adventurous duo has been revealed on the latest cover of EW.  Hit the jump to take a look and for release date news for the James Brown biopic Get on Up and the genre redo Dracula Untold.
