Get Tied Down With First Trailer for 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

24 July 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

No longer the erotic haven for soccer moms across America, "Fifty Shades of Grey" is now a full-blown pop-culture phenomenon that Universal hopes will boost its Q1 earnings. Yes, the "Fifty Shades of Grey" motion picture trailer has landed. Aside from observing the ways it might be reworked into a mock trailer about a serial killer luring a young woman, the material looks awfully bland, speaking for both Sam Taylor-Johnson’s drab aesthetics and the chemistry (or lack thereof) between Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele. One hopes the movie itself, produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti and written by Kelly Marcel ("Saving Mr. Banks") is not as timid as this. Have a look below, previewing what the studio will release this Valentine’s Day (har har har): »

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Trailer Arrives Online

24 July 2014 5:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On Thursday morning, Universal Studios debuted its first trailer for “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the highly anticipated film based on the erotic novels by E.L. James.

The movie stars Jamie Dornan (who appears san shirt) as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as his inexperienced lover Anastasia Steele.

The trailer, featuring a remix of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love,” starts off very innocently before teasing a few sex and bondage scenes at the end, including the image above of Johnson (the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith) blindfolded and naked.

The film, directed by Sam Taylor Johnson, has not been rated but it would be surprising if the MPAA gave it anything below an R-rating, given the graphic sex in the novels.

The two-and-a-half minute trailer was exclusively unveiled on NBC’s “Today” Thursday morning.

Sony Turmoil: Top Executive Exodus Continues

22 July 2014 4:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Turmoil continues to envelop Sony Pictures’ top executive ranks, begging the question of when and if the current administration can turn around the struggling studio and put an end to the upheaval that has been plaguing its Culver City lot for months.

Sony’s worldwide marketing and distribution chief Jeff Blake, who agreed Tuesday to “step aside” and leave the studio after 22 years, joins the exodus of executives who have spun through the studio’s dizzying revolving door over the past year. Several division heads were fired, including worldwide marketing president Marc Weinstock; home entertainment chief David Bishop; senior VP of media relations Steve Elzer and Chris Cookson, president of Sony Pictures Technologies. Matt Brown, executive VP, worldwide commercial for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment; executive VP of global communications Ann Boyd; VP of global communications Jason Allen and home entertainment and acquisitions public relations head Fritz Friedman also left.

Sony Pictures’ Jeff Blake Leaving Marketing-Distribution Top Slot

22 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jeff Blake is leaving his post as chairman of worldwide marketing and distribution for Sony Pictures, a position he’s held since 2005.

Blake, who has been at the studio for 22 years, will exit Aug. 1. Sony did not immediately indicate if Blake’s slot will be filled.

Blake joined Sony as president of Sony Pictures Releasing in 1992 and became vice chairman in 2002.  He began working in 1974 at Paramount in distribution.

Speculation has been growing in recent months that Blake, who’s well-known and well-liked within the business, would depart.

The shift comes with Sony Pictures Entertainment under scrutiny following a mixed performance in 2013 and so far in 2014.

The studio saw strong performances from “22 Jump Street” and “Heaven Is for Real” and its franchise “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ delivered over $700 million worldwide. “RoboCop,” shared with MGM, performed far better overseas ($184 million) than domestically ($58 million) and “The Monuments Men” turned in a middling performance with $155 million worldwide. »

Fifty Shades Of Grey Teaser Unveiled Ahead Of Trailer Premiere

21 July 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alas, the days when cinema buffs got amped up for movies by watching full-length trailers are behind us. Now, the studios wheel out trailers for the trailers, call them “teasers” and trick the general public into watching them without actually giving away any footage from the film. Bigger box office prospects are more prone to this strategy than smaller flicks, which is why I’m not surprised to see that erotica adaptation Fifty Shades of Grey is one of the titles attempting to grab our attention ahead of the premiere of its first actual trailer.

A teaser for the preview, which drops Thursday, comes to us courtesy of Beyoncé, of all people. You’ve got to hand it to the marketing department for landing possibly the most widely beloved singer in the world to advertise Fifty Shades of Grey (which didn’t exactly need more publicity anyway, but oh well »

Universal starts work on Fifty Shades Of Grey follow-up

3 July 2014 11:48 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Universal is on the search for screenwriters to get E L James' second Fifty Shades book to the big screen...

News

With the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey set for release on Valentine's Day next year, Universal has decided to get moving already on the follow-up book, Fifty Shades Darker.

The Tracking Board reports this morning that the studio has decided to press ahead with the sequel, and has the project down as an open writing assignment. Or, in other words, it's now actively seeking a screenwriter to adapt E L James' text for the screen. That points to original screenwriters Kelly Marcel, Patrick Marber and Mark Bomback not being involved, or at least not yet.

Producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti will be taking the next instalment forward, and we can't imagine the key cast won't be back. Director Sam Taylor-Johnson's involvement is thus far unclear. »

First Trailer for Dracula Untold Released Starring The Hobbit’s Luke Evans

28 June 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Like a lot of iconic movie monsters, Dracula has had a rough time of it over recent years, with one of his most recent live-action adaptations – the NBC television series which starred Jonathan Rhys Meyers – lasting only a single season before being cancelled due to low ratings and a tepid critical response.

Perhaps then it’s for the best that Dracula Untold is taking the vampire back to basics as it strives to deliver a very different take on his early years. In this movie, the focus will be on Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans) as he strikes a deal a deal with dark forces in order to protect his family and protect his homeland.

Will we see his descent into the blood sucking villain that we all know so well from previous movies, or could the studio be looking at Dracula Untold as the first in a series of movies exploring Dracula’s early years? »

First Trailer for Dracula Untold Goes the Action Route

27 June 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Just last week, Universal pictures debuted a pair of movie posters for their upcoming Dracula Untold, and they were pretty decent looking.  It's a new and different take on the traditional vampire movie, incorporating the "history" of Vlad Tepish, with the mythology of the Dracula we all know.  Today, they've debuted (officially) the first trailer for the movie, and it looks more like an action film than anything else. 

It's not necessarily a bad trailer...it's just kind of generic.  In all honesty this looks like it could be any kind of medieval fantasy movie, and the only reason vampires are in it is because it's got Dracula in the title.  Because of this, I'm a little wary of this film.  While I'm all about new kinds of vampire movies, I want them to be good ones.  This first trailer feels way too generic, and shows off nothing of why it should stand apart. »
