Easily the most anticipated movie to be released so far in 2015, Fifty Shades Of Grey is finally upon us. So just in time for Valentine’s Day, we have a sado-masochistic love story. Well, maybe not, but it should do wonders for sales of sex toys. And, as I say in my video review above, there’s no question this movie will be a conversation starter.
The book by EL James was one of the biggest bestsellers in years, as were its two sequels. Universal says the movie trailer has been downloaded 250 million times. So can this movie possibly miss at the box office? Not bloody likely, especially because it actually improves on the book, with some occasionally witty and sharp scenes.
Director Sam Taylor-Johnson brings style and top filmmaking skills to the tale, which stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. Co-stars include Jennifer Ehle, Marcia Gay Harden, Eloise Mumford, Luke Grimes and Rita Ora. Kelly Marcel wrote the script. It was produced by James, Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti.
Will you line up this weekend with everyone else to go Grey? Check out my video review and let us know what you think.
