“Fifty Shades of Grey,” the movie based on the controversial yet extremely popular book of the same name, now has a movie trailer stating that the movie will open on Valentine’s Day 2015, according to CBS News on Thursday. If the hype and wide-spread public reaction to the official trailer is any indication of the interest that there will be in the movie, expect a blockbuster at the box offices across the nation – and beyond.
According to the report on the official trailer (which can be seen within this article), for about the first minute of the video, people really don’t get a full understanding of main character, Christian Grey. Described as seductive, sexy and enigmatic, Grey – who is the 27-year-old CEO of Grey Enterprises Holdings, Incorporated in the movie – is swept in and out of brief camera shots. The trailer reveals the first meeting he has with Ana (Anastasia) Steele who is played by Dakota Johnson, the daughter of Don Johnson who was an iconic actor in the 1980s. Her mother is actress Melanie Griffith.
To make Grey’s image complete, he is wealthy – a billionaire. Jamie Dornan is the actor who plays Christian Grey. In the brief dialog displayed in the trailer, Steele is interviewed by Grey. However, Grey ends up asking Steele to tell him all about her. Steele tells Grey that there really isn’t much to know about her. She says, “Look at me.” He responds, “I am.” Then the trailer gets more interesting - assuming steam on the screen is what interests viewers.
As Beyonce’s musical track of “Crazy In Love,” is heard, the trailer continues with a brief view of an elevator scene which likely turns to images which wouldn’t be approved for a trailer. Fox News calls the book-to-movie the most anticipated motion picture to come along in years. The initial trailer for “Fifty Shades of Grey” showed up on YouTube on Thursday morning and immediately started trending on Twitter and Facebook, and that’s why you’re reading about it here.
