Ellen made her very own trailer for “50 Shades Of Grey” starring none other than herself in the place of Dakota Johnson, and it is absolute perfection. Ellen regales Jamie Dornan (and the rest of us) with her special brand of dirty talk and smoldering eye contact. Now this is a movie I could get excited about. [Cosmopolitan]
Universal is baiting us with another “50 Shades Of Grey” ad just a week after the big reveal of the movie’s official trailer. This one is a TV spot featuring a Beyonce song once again and pretty much a recycled version of the same three or so clips we’ve already seen. I mean, at least this one shows more skin than the others. [Just Jared]
A new teaser for “Fifty Shades Of Grey” was released yesterday, featuring our hero Mr. Grey sensually dressing himself while Beyonce’s “Haunted” plays in the background. The ad tells us that an exclusive new trailer is coming on November 14, which we’re all presumably now hanging off the edge of our seats for. So thanks Universal, for making an ad just to remind us of another ad. It does provide a pretty nice view of Jamie Dornan’s sexy shoulders, so I guess that makes it worth it. [Refinery 29]

“Fifty Shades Of Grey” wine has been on the market for a few years now, but E.L. James, the author of the book series, has upped the ante for those of us who fancy a … bigger specimen. Now, E.L.’s very own Red Satin blend, inspired by the romance and passion between the trilogy’s main characters, Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, will be offered in a limited edition, 3-liter bottle. Equal in volume to four standard wine bottles, the “Fifty Shades of Grey” Red Satin Collector’s Edition includes a hand-engraved bottle painted by artisans in Napa Valley, California, and is hand-dipped in a red hot wax seal. FANCY. Keep reading »
Today in Things That Make Me Want To Scream “CORRELATION DOES NOT EQUAL CAUSATION!” And Beat My Head Against The Wall:
Last year, a study out of Michigan State University found that the erotic BDSM trilogy Fifty Shades Of Grey “perpetuates” abusive relationships. Now, another study from the same professor at MSU claims young women who read the books are more likely to have an abusive partner and show signs of an eating disorder.
Women who read all three books in the trilogy (like me and Amelia), the study found, are more likely to binge drink and have multiple sex partners. Amy Bonomi, a professor of Human Development and Family Studies and lead author of the study, said that based on her study of over 650 young women ages 18 to 24, it’s possible the Fifty Shades books might “reaffirm” negative experiences and “aggravate trauma.” In other words, this lady r-e-a-l-l-y does not like these books.
Well, well, well. Where to start with this one? Keep reading »
