After casting woes, skepticism from the hard core book fans, and even being harpooned for being sexual fluff the big day has arrived. Questions answered, hope renewed (or dashed depending on your take on the trailer) and we get the first glimpse of Christian Grey and Anastasia. I don't want to give too much away; however I will say you do get a quick look at the steamy goodness the book is well known and loved for.
The movie stars Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as the self described 'awkward' Anastasia Steele.
Release date is Valentines Day 2015.
What do you think? Does it deliver?
For those not in the know as to what the movie is about, here is a summary:
When Anastasia Steele, a literature student, goes to interview the wealthy Christian Grey, as a favor to her roommate Kate Kavanagh, she encounters a beautiful, brilliant and intimidating man. The innocent and naive Ana started to realize she wants him, despite his enigmatic reserve and advice, she finds herself desperate to get close to him. Not able to resist Ana's beauty and independent spirit, Christian Grey admits he wants her too, but in his own terms. Ana hesitates as she discovers the singular tastes of Christian Grey - despite of the embellishments of success, his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family - Grey is consumed by the need to control everything. As they get close Ana starts to discover Christian Grey's secrets and explores her own desires.
In the trailer we get to see a brief look into fan favorite scenes, including the infamous interview / chance meeting.
The question is will this trailer help win over their target audience?
