Rita Ora Talks '50 Shades' Casting
Prior to landing the role of Mia, Ora’s acting experience included two childhood roles and an un-credited appearance in Fast & Furious 6 as a racer. Ora approached Fifty Shades of Grey producers, but not for a part in the film. She had merely hoped to get involved somehow in the film’s soundtrack. However, upon meeting with them, she learned they thought she might fit the bill for the part of Mia.
"It ended up with me being in the movie," she told MTV News.. "I'm not going to complain."
Although the producers liked the idea of her being in Fifty Shades of Grey, Ora still had to work to land the role. »
Dakota Johnson needn't worry about getting typecast as her submissive Fifty Shades of Grey character Anastasia Steele, because, as she proves in this deleted Date and Switch clip, she can masterfully dominate a scene, too! The 24-year-old actress plays Em, the supportive ex-girlfriend Matty (Hunter Cope), a high school guy outed as gay before he's ready. Dakota's character blames Michael (Nicholas Braun) for spilling Matty's secret, and when he naïvely shows up at her house and asks her to prom, she properly eviscerates him. "You've done an awful, horrible thing," she spits. "If I were Matty, I don't know if I've ever forgive you." Michael tries (and »

Since filming Fifty Shades of Grey, Dakota Johnson is no stranger to having her hands full (if you know what we mean), but this is not the time to get pervy, you guys. The actress was seen juggling a number of items while running errands in Los Angeles today, from her phone, wallet and keys to coffee and snacks, because for whatever reason, Johnson didn't feel like carrying a purse today but probably realized later that would have been a smarter idea (we've all been there). Regardless, the star looked 50 shades of cute as she tightly held on to all of her belongings while rocking a casual and comfy look. Dakota, who has been seducing fans on numerous magazine covers lately, toned down her »
Dakota Johnson is out of the Red Room of Pain and back in Los Angeles. The Fifty Shades of Grey starlet enjoyed a night of music at the Petty Fest 2014 at the El Rey Theater on Thursday evening.

"She's a huge supporter of The Fest." The night of music honoring Tom Petty also featured musical acts by »

Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams confirmed in January that Jesse Plemons was one of the actors he had met with for a role rumored to be a Jedi apprentice. Since both Black Mass and Star Wars: Episode VII are scheduled to begin production around the same time in May, it seems clear that he will not be a part of the sci-fi sequel. The Hollywood Reporter's sources indicate the actor did have a meeting for the Star Wars: Episode VII role, although has nothing materialized since then.
J.J. Abrams is reportedly meeting with "tons of actors," while going through script revisions, although nothing seems to have come from any of these meetings.
However, one »
We’ve got a couple of casting stories to attend to this afternoon. First up, THR reports that Jesse Plemons (The Master) and Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises) are in talks to join Johnny Depp in the Whitey Bulger drama Black Mass. This tidbit appears to confirm that, while he indeed met for the project, Plemons is likely out of contention for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII. The J.J. Abrams-directed sequel will be filming at the same time as Black Mass and Plemons would be unable to do both movies, so the fact that he’s actively seeking other work in the near future signals that we probably won’t be seeing Landry in a galaxy far, far away. Depp is set to play Bulger in Black Mass, with Joel Edgerton and Guy Pearce onboard to co-star and Dakota Johnson in talks for a role. Though »

Now, THR is reporting that two young talents are being considered for parts in the film: Jesse Plemons and Juno Temple.
While neither are household names just yet. both have seen significant bumps in their fame over the last couple of years and are slowly making their way up towards Hollywood’s A-List. Plemons has been heavily rumored for Star Wars: Episode VII and Temple will next be seen in two very high-profile films that will be arriving this summer (Maleficent and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For).
In regards to Black Mass, Plemons is wanted for the role of a “tough »

Anytime Johnny Depp is making a movie that doesn't require feathers or gaudy makeup we're interested, and thus "Black Mass" has our full attention. And the cast for Scott Cooper's film just keeps getting better and better. Jesse Plemons and Juno Temple are the latest aboard the project, joining Joel Edgerton, Guy Pearce and Dakota Johnson in the film about notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger.

Should the film adaptation of E L James's best-selling S&M-themed novel be called 50 Lighter Shades of Grey? If the approximate five-minute preview of the hotly anticipated movie (which began filming in December) shown this week at Las Vegas's CinemaCon is any indication, then fans of the book may be in for a less sexually charged on-screen story than the one the book tells. Attendees at the film festival got a peek at an opening scene, which apparently featured Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) meeting in the billionaire's high-rise office - and at one point »
While we still have to wait until February 13, 2015 for Fifty Shades of Grey to hit theaters, a few lucky folks were treated to a five minute preview of the highly anticipated erotic flick earlier this week. Never-before-seen-footage from E.L. James' Bdsm book-turned-movie was introduced to those at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday, and their reactions have been making the Internet rounds. The overall consensus? The film—which is based on the S&M thriller of the same name and stars Jamie Dornan as domineering billionaire Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as virginal Anastasia Steele—is far more focused on romance than raunchiness. Here's what folks are saying: News: Fifty Shades set »
Early footage of the film of El James' bestselling books has disappointed, with the S&M toned down in favour of romance
• Fifty Shades movie pushed back to Valentine's Day 2015
It is the high-profile, big screen adaptation of a knee-trembling literary sensation that has left more than 70m readers hot under the collar. But verdicts on the first footage from Sam Taylor-Johnson's take on El James' Fifty Shades of Grey suggest the film version of the S&M-flavoured novel may in fact be rather tame.
Studio Universal screened scenes for journalists and cinema owners at the annual CinemaCon event in Las Vegas yesterday, with reports suggesting there could be little in the way of erotic tension on show when the movie hits cinemas next year. Stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who play kinky billionaire Christian Grey and his willing, well-remunerated "sex-slave" Anastasia Steele, were mostly seen "making moon-eyes at each other", suggested attendees. »

On the second day of the movie industry’s annual CinemaCon gathering, Universal Pictures presented a look at their upcoming slate. While Paramount focused almost entirely on their three Summer movies, Universal presented on a broad range of movies, including a few big ones from 2015.
While it was met with a fairly tepid response from the CinemaCon crowd, without a doubt the most newsworthy of the reels was for Fifty Shades of Grey. The highly-anticipated adaptation doesn’t open until next Valentine’s Day, though Universal presented what was essentially a two-minute trailer for the movie. Most of the time was spent setting up the romance between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, and leads Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan seemed to fit the parts nicely. By the end of the trailer, though, there were pretty obvious hints at the kind of steamy »

Ladies, you will not be disappointed.
Universal Pictures unveiled the teaser trailer for the anticipated “Fifty Shades of Grey” today to CinemaCon attendees in Las Vegas. The trailer showed a softer romantic side with a tint of wildness—not exactly a quasi-pornographic controversial film that some will make it out to be.
Latino-Review was in attendance to witness the teaser trailer.
The opening of the trailer is very similar to E.L James’ novel with Anastasia “Ana” Steele walking into Christian Grey’s office to conduct and interview. And in a Gatsby-like manner, Mr. Grey woos Ana with power suits, luxurious rooms and a helicopter. Most of the trailer shows the love connection between Ana and Grey. There was only a brief glimpse of having sex and some sex toys, but nothing crazy.
The casting was deeply debated amongst the book’s fans last year as the studio settled with »
