Fifty Shades Of Grey – Trailer24.07.14 # Trailers # 2 Comments
Mr. Grey will see you now. No, not the alien from Dreamcatcher.
A literature student (Dakota Johnson, Need for Speed) meets a handsome, yet tormented, billionaire (Jamie Dornan, TV’s The Fall) and they begin an affair. He is consumed by the need to control everything. As they get closer she starts to discover his secrets, while being introduced to new world of kinky bedroom fantasies.
Mr. Grey actor Jamie Dornan is a virtual unknown, after Charlie Hunnam got cold feet and dropped out. The casting doesn’t quite seem right, with the ‘innocent’ lit student (played by Melanie Griffith’s daughter) looking more experienced than most, and his face looking quite boyish in the trailer.
Since the book is famous for being an S&M fest, early scene footage has disappointed fans with its tame nature, emphasising romanticism over eroticism. Nonetheless there’s still time to refocus.
The director of Nowhere Boy has persuaded her husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson, to take a small unspecified role.
While it probably won’t be a great film, watching the phenomenon will be quite interesting. Fifty Shades Of Grey will be released in the US and UK on 13th February next year.
