That sound you hear is thousands of women making excuses to their husbands/boyfriends/bosses/friends for why they can’t go out tonight, because the first official “Fifty Shades of Grey” trailer has arrived and it needs to be watched over and over again. I have to say, it looks like Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan have done a good job capturing the chemistry between young and innocent Anastasia and pervy control freak Christian … but I remain concerned that the movie won’t be nearly as racy as it should be. There had better be a drawer full of butt plugs in the Red Room Of Pain or I’ll be pissed.
This must stop. “Fifty Shades Of Grey,” be it the book or the movie, must stop ruining the world. I know that it’s natural to want to sell merchandise related to a phenomenon because MONEY. A Fifty Shades sex toy kit? I can make a snarky remark about the Twitchy Palm Paddle. I can wonder if it might bring someone more pleasure/pain than a regular paddle. And then I can call it a day. But a Christian Grey teddy bear? I must draw the line at a kinky teddy bear. Keep reading »
“I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame… Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.”
Dakota Johnson (or shall we say, Anastasia Steele) opened up to Elle magazine about filming those intense sex scenes for the upcoming “Fifty Shades Of Grey” movie. Apparently, it wasn’t too nerve-wracking for her to let it all go for the camera. It sounds like Johnson dug into the deeper aspects of her character’s romps with Christian Grey, which I hope means we can expect a movie that’s as complex and explorational as it is sexy. A girl can wish! PopSugar
Sure hope you’re not sick of hearing about the upcoming “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, because the studio has only just begun it’s year-long campaign promoting the movie, which opens on Valentine’s Day 2015. Here is the film’s first post. Are you ready for the Red Room of Pain?
“Fifty Shades of Grey” costars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan got up close and personal for Anastasia and Christian’s first semi-romantic scene on the set of “Fifty Shades of Grey.” It’s just a photo, but I’m sensing chemistry between these two actors and can’t wait to see what they do in the Red Room of Pain. (An aside: Am I the only person left on Earth who is still holding out hope that this movie is going to be good?) [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
Fifty Shades Of Grey author E. L. James may not be the best writer, but the woman knows how to make a buck: last month she introduced Fifty Shades lingerie. The line is sold by Swedish retailer KappAhl and features undergarments and nightgowns in red, black and (of course) grey. As you can see in this elegant commercial for the Fifty Shades line, the looks are silky, classy and tame — Christian Grey would approve. It’s too bad KappAhl is only available in Europe. I hear they pair well with Fifty Shades Of Grey-themed wine and desserts — and nine months later, baby onesies. [KappAhl; Wall Street Journal]
On the subject of James Franco, I have learned not to ask questions. For clarification: how many questions? None. Zero questions. Just go along with it. The provocative Mind of Franco has developed a new “work” (??) called “50 Shades of Batman and Robin,” which presumably involves elements of both the “50 Shades” series and its S&M connotations and the beloved DC Comics superheroes Batman & Robin. The artist introduced his latest release on Facebook today in the form of two images. The first, depicting a shirtless man (likely Franco himself) and his nipples in a Batman costume and bondage restraints, is fairly tame by Franco standards. But the second photo … well, it’s a lot. Or a load, rather. Keep reading »
“You’re a virgin?” he breathes. I nod, flushing again. He closes his eyes and looks to be counting to ten. When he opens them again, he’s angry, glaring at me. “Why the fuck didn’t you tell me?”
I don’t know if that’s the scene “Fifty Shades Of Grey” stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are filming, but it is so much more fun to look at photos of them onset and imagine the shitty bits of dialogue coming out of their mouths. Can’t wait for all 90+ minutes to hit theaters! See a few more pics after the jump… [Photos: Fame/Flynet] Keep reading »
Everyone makes fun of me at the office for being a germophobe. But read this story and tell me I’m wrong: professors in Belgium ran toxicology and bacteriology tests on library books and found that Fifty Shades Of Grey had the herpes virus. Oh, yes. The two profs checked out the 10 most borrowed books in the Antwerp library to test them for germs and drugs. Not only did the E..L. James BDSM erotica have traces of herpes, but they also found traces of cocaine on every single other book. Relax, though: you won’t get a contact high or a persistent vaginal itch from any of these books because the concentrations of both were so minimal. (Just to be safe, Belgians, you could always wear condoms on your hands while reading!) Let’s talk about the appropriate way to use library books, people. Tip #1: DON’T GIVE YOUR LIBRARY BOOKS STDS.
