This New 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Pic Is a Big Tease (Photo)

11 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Things are getting steamy in the run-up to the release of "Fifty Shades of Grey," as this new, naughty-but-nice photo proves.

The image, released by the film's Twitter page in honor of protagonist Anastasia Steele's birthday, features a close-up of Ana (Dakota Johnson) as she thoughtfully chews on the end of a pencil, monogrammed with the word "Grey." It couldn't possibly be a euphemism for something else, could it?

We'll leave that up to those with dirtier imaginations than ours (though the pencil standing in for something else belonging to S&M-obsessed billionaire Christian Grey did cross our minds). The photo certainly proves that filmmakers (or at least the social media team) have a sense of humor about the provocative film's sexual antics -- and, of course, they're leaving us wanting more.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Celebrates Ana's Birthday With A New Photo

10 September 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Happy birthday, Anastasia. That's the message that comes along with the above preview photo, which gives us a new look at the anticipated feature adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. September 10 is the character's birthday, and to celebrate the occasion, we're treated to the site of Dakota Johnson looking pensive while she holds a pencil with the Grey Enterprises logo on it. The photo was shared on the Fifty Shades of Grey Facebook page today. So, what exactly is happening here? It's possible we're looking at a new glimpse of Ana as she interviews Christian the first time she meets him. However, as you might recall when we saw the trailer, though she is holding some kind of writing utensil, Ana had her hair tied back in that scene... Not only is her hair back in the interview scene, but the new photo has some green in the background, which »

Charlie Hunnam reveals why he dropped out of Fifty Shades of Grey

9 September 2014 11:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Fifty Shades of Grey was first announced it seemed that almost every young star in Hollywood was up for the lead roles. Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) was actually cast as the male lead Christian Grey but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. In a recent interview the actor revealed that he was having a ‘nervous breakdown’ due to his hectic filming schedule.

“I was going to finish Sons of Anarchy at like 11pm Friday night, get on the plane Saturday morning for Fifty, missing the whole first week of rehearsal and start shooting Monday morning.” Hunnam said.

Hunnam also explained his commitment to Crimson Peak would have added to his work schedule which was allegedly organised around his Sons of Anarchy schedule.

“And I was going to shoot that film, wrap that on the Wednesday and the following Monday I was going to start shooting Crimson Peak in Toronto. »

Charlie Hunnam Claims Nervous Breakdown Kept Him From 'Fifty Shades' Role As Christian Grey

9 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Charlie Hunnam famously walked away from starring as the billionaire sex game playboy Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, which the actor is now claiming was due to a nervous breakdown caused by a hectic filming schedule.

Charlie Hunnam's Nervous Breakdown

Routinely faced with questions about why he backed out of filming Fifty Shades of Grey, Hunnam has stated that it was scheduling – not fear that the project would negatively impact his career – that led to the decision. "I wouldn't have signed up in the first place if I didn't want to do it," Hunnam told Moviefone.

Hunnam explained that if he’d stayed on as Christian Grey, he’d have to slip out of his Sons of Anarchy character Jax Teller and into that of Christian with just a few days in between, missing rehearsal for the adaption of E.L. James’ bestselling erotic novel. Then, »

Charlie Hunnam Reveals ‘Nervous Breakdown’ Was Real Reason Behind ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Departure

9 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sons of Anarchy” star and almost “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Charlie Hunnam has revealed that it was “a nervous breakdown” that really led to his departure from the upcoming adaptation of the best-selling E.L. James novel. The actor, who would have played Christian Grey opposite Dakota Johnson's Anastasia Steele, told Moviefone that the Focus Features drama would have been one project too many, since he already committed to shooting Guillermo del Toro‘s “Crimson Peak” during his hiatus from FX series “Sons.” See video: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Alternate Trailer: The Charlie Hunnam Cut “I was going to finish ‘Sons’ at like 11 p. »

Toronto Festival Market Swells, But Will It Yield Any Hits?

8 September 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two splashy deals have revived a slow market for films at this year’s Toronto Film Festival.

Buyers and sellers were getting concerned that no one would reach for their checkbooks until a pair of Scott Rudin produced pictures sparked bidding wars among distributors willing to shell out big bucks. U.S. rights for Noah Baumbach’s “While We're Young” sold to A24 for $4 million, while global rights to Chris Rock’s “Top Five” will likely be nabbed by Paramount for $12.5 million and a $20 million P&A commitment.

Those major paydays aside, there is a mounting sense among the Hollywood types who made the cross-continent trek to the Canadian city that this year’s festival will go down as a slow boil that never bubbled over.

“The market is a little disappointing,” said Bill Bromley, president of Saban Films. “There’s some commercial product here, but I’ve seen »

Venice 2014: 'Cymbeline' review

6 September 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Belonging to that generically wonky sub-genre of William Shakespeare's works known as the 'problem plays', Michael Almereyda's Cymbeline (2014) is an intriguingly off-the-wall production which ultimately doesn't quite gel. Cymbeline (Ed Harris) of the Briton Motorcycle gang goes to war with the Roman police department headed by Caius Lucius (Vondie Curtis-Hall). Meanwhile, his second wife (a barely seen Milla Jovovich) plots to remove Cymbeline's beloved daughter Imogen, 50 Shades of Grey (2015) actress Dakota Johnson, who is also endangered by trouble-making villain, Iachimo (Ethan Hawke), who taunts her boyfriend Posthumus (Penn Badgley) into an ill-advised bet against Imogen's fidelity.
