Jamie Dornan Visited a Sex Dungeon to Prepare for Fifty Shades of Grey: "It Was an Interesting Evening"

17 December 2014 2:02 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it. Jamie Dornan didn't just walk onto the Fifty Shades of Grey set and start acting — he did his research first. Prior to taking on the role of S&M-loving billionaire Christian Grey in the film adaptation of E L James' wildly popular erotic novel, he paid a visit to a "sex dungeon" for a little lesson in kink. "I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did...whatever they were into. I saw a dominant with one [...] »

Zoella’s Book Shatters Records By Selling 78,000 Copies In First Week

3 December 2014 4:25 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

When we learned about the pre-release numbers generated by Zoe Sugg (aka Zoella)'s debut novel, we knew the book was going to sell a ton of copies. Now, The Bookseller has put a number on those sales. In its first week on the shelves, Sugg's book Girl Online sold more than 78,000 copies, according to data from Nielsen BookScan. That sum is the highest total for a debut author's first-week book sales since Nielsen began keeping track in 1998. By comparison, Fifty Shades of Gray, which was author E.L. James' first novel, sold close to 15,000 copies in its first week before going on to become the best-selling debut novel of all time. (Girl Online has a long way to go before it breaks that record, to say the least.) The book's popularity stems from Sugg's popularity as a YouTube vlogger and beauty expert; her channel has more than 6.6 million subscribers. »

See Rita Ora (And Her Crazy Wig) in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

28 November 2014 3:11 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Rita Ora looks like a different person with a bob.

Look no further than the newest Fifty Shades of Grey movie posters to see her in a black, short wig.

Post by Fifty Shades of Grey.

In contrast to the wig, her most recent blonde 'do is long enough to hold together in a bun as seen at the 2014 American Music Awards.

Ora, 24, is playing the role of Christian Grey's littler sister, Mia Grey. Her part gave the "Black Widow" singer a chance to transition beyond her career in music.

Ora recently told UK's Capital FM, "This was such a great cameo to be involved in, and even though it's only in for a little bit, it's opened a door to a lot of movie things that I haven't actually announced yet."

The highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey comes out in Feb. 2015 and is based on the best-selling erotic novel by E.L. James. The story is »

New Stills For Fifty Shades Of Grey Show Off Family Members And Rita Ora

27 November 2014 8:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Those eager to see Focus Features’ big-screen rendition of E.L. JamesFifty Shades of Grey will know all too well that the relationship between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey serve as the tenacious focal point of the story, but that doesn’t mean that their tale of love and lust doesn’t affect those around them — specifically their family members.

And so, after releasing a pair of enticing trailers last week, the studio has unveiled a series of stills that introduce us to Grey’s mother, father and adoptive sister, which will be played by Marcia Gay Harden, Andrew Airlie and singer-cum-actress Rita Ora, respectively.

Interestingly, Focus Features has withheld any mention of Luke Grimes’ character, who plays the role of Christian’s brother, Elliot — though we’re assuming he’ll crop up in the next trailer or character poster closer to the time of release.

10 Things You Need To Know About Fifty Shades Of Grey

25 November 2014 7:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

The days are counting down to the February 13th release of the movie adaptation of E.L. James best-selling erotic novel Fifty Shades Of Grey. Though plenty of controversy has surrounded the sexual content, the casting and the enigmatic nature of the production, it’s safe to say that the movie is going to be on everyone’s lips this coming February, regardless of whether it’s actually any good at all.

Whether you’re a fan of James’ novel or merely a perversely curious bystander wondering whether the film will be anything more than a softcore porno, the cast and crew have let information slip over the last few months about what can be expected from Fifty Shades Of Grey. Whether these various aspects of the production are good or bad will largely be for you to decide, though it’s fair to say that some of them »

New TV Spot For Fifty Shades Of Grey Doesn’t Do Things By Half

21 November 2014 8:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hot on the seductive heels of last week’s full-length trailer, Focus Features has unveiled a new TV spot for Fifty Shades of Grey that teases some never-before-seen footage.

Following an extensive period of silence on Sam Taylor-Johnson’s anticipated adaptation, it appears as though the marketing campaign is beginning to fire on all cylinders as we draw ever closer to the film’s release in February (Valentine’s Day, to be specific).

Charting the tale of love and lust between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey (played here by Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, respectively), Fifty Shades of Grey took the world by storm when it released three years ago, selling a staggering 100 million copies in the process — because who needs coherent prose and good grammar, right?

Still, in the digital age, it’s hard to escape the shadow of E.L. James’ record-breaking trilogy, and should Sam Taylor-Johnson’s upcoming »

New Fifty Shades Of Grey TV Spot Continues to Promise Sweet, Kinky Love

21 November 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal has released a new Fifty Shades of Grey TV spot.  Based on novel by E.L. James (which began as Twilight fan fiction), the story revolves around Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and her introduction to a whole new world of sexual discovery and risqué activities in the hands of billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).  The ads for this movie are so bizarre in how they seem to be selling the film as "Come watch softcore porn this Valentine's Day in a public theater, but you don't have to feel guilty because really it's about love."  I've heard far more than I wanted to about book (link not-safe-for-work or life), but the word "love" has never come up.  It's erotica.  It's best-selling erotica, but erotica nonetheless. Hit the jump to watch the new Fifty Shades of Grey TV spot.  The film opens February 14, 2015, and also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Jennifer Ehle, »

Christian Grey is not playing fair in new Fifty Shades trailer and poster

14 November 2014 7:48 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Beyoncé lends her sultry pipes to another trailer for Sam Taylor-Johnson’s Fifty Shades of Grey. Replacing “Crazy In Love” with “Haunted,” the soundtrack provides a little more menace to Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele’s (Dakota Johnson) romance.

As her interview with the tycoon takes a sharp turn toward the bedroom, Anastasia, a student turned reluctant journalist, appears a bit apprehensive – but still intrigued – by Christian’s “very singular” tastes.

Fifty Shades of Grey also stars singer Rita Ora, “True Blood”’s Luke Grimes, and Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River).

Bite into the newest trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, the adaptation of E.L. James’ best-selling novel, right now -- and scroll down to check out the newest poster of Christian.
