The trailer for “Fifty Shades of Grey” was just released and the fans of the bestselling book got to see their first glimpse at the much anticipated movie that brings the steamy novel characters to life. The book referred to as “mommy porn” by the New York Daily News in an article on July 24, now has some real-life faces representing its characters.
The trailer opens up with Anastasia Steele being told “Mr. Grey will see you now,” as she is led into a huge office, which is void of all personality and color with its clean lines. The original description at the beginning of the book of a mousy and somewhat disheveled Anastasia is depicted to perfection by Dakota Johnson.
Grey’s face remains a mystery for the first few seconds. Then you get a glimpse at those intense eyes, which are the first hint of Grey’s still waters running deep and dark. The dark places of this fictional romance is where the film will take the audience, much like the E.L. James S&M romance novel.
Hollywood Life suggests that the on-screen chemistry between Ana and Christian may be the sexiest seen on the screen in a long time. They also say it is “much better than Edward and Bella” from the “Twilight” movie series. Now that is saying a lot if you are a "Twilight" fan.
Many fans of "Fifty Shades of Grey" were disappointed when hearing that Charlie Hunnam wasn’t going to play Christian Grey in the movie, but Jamie Dornan brings it home as Grey. The first sign of contact between the two in the trailer is a kiss in the elevator and the chemistry bubbles up even before the doors slid shut.
The “Fifty Shades of Grey” phenomenon hit its peak at the water coolers around the nation sometime last year. It has been a while since Grey and company have been the saturated subject of the day. The new trailer just might push “Fifty Shades of Grey” to the top again, but the movie is not due out until Valentine’s Day, so there’s a long wait before the movie is a reality in theaters.
Is this movie delivering the “mommy porn” worth waiting for and can it spark the interest that the first book of the series did? That will be a questioned answered the weekend of Valentine’s Day. Until that day, you have the trailer to mull over for a shot of “Fifty Shades of Grey” until the movie hits the theaters.
