Ellie Goulding’s ballad “Love Me Like You Do” was released on YouTube today, and I’m not really sure how I feel about it. Max Martin produced the song, which was specially written for the “50 Shades of Grey” soundtrack. After that oh-so-sultry version of “Crazy In Love” in the film’s trailer, I was expecting something with a bit more oomph. I’m an Ellie fan in general though, so maybe it’ll grow on me. The soundtrack’s full tracklist hasn’t been released yet, but something tells me it might be more engaging than the movie itself. [Rolling Stone]
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 »
