I have to admit I was completely clueless about Fifty Shades of Grey until it was too late. I had heard that it was a popular book among women, and so trying to play the part of a caring son bought it for my mother’s birthday. The way her eyes lit up were the first warning signs I had opened a door to something dark and for some reason I am now her favourite son…
I’ve never had the urge to open the book much as I’ve never had the urge to stick a knife into my ear but many others have, some 70 million apparently. So I am pretty sure that when the movie comes out next year on Valentine’s Day it’ll break the box office like a poorly designed whip.
Have a look at the new trailer featuring Jamie Dornan as the billionaire Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. I can only hope that this movie doesn’t do as much to their careers as other moping actors in movies with shining vampires.
Fifty Shades of Grey opens on Valentine’s day 2015 and is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and stars Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Jennifer Ehle, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Rita Ora, Marcia Gay Harden and Callum Keith Rennie.
