The trailers for Gareth Edwards Godzilla reboot and Michael Bay’s Transformers 4: Age of Extinction share the third spot with 26.3 million views in it’s first week of release. Both meagre numbers in comparison considering how successful both blockbusters were.

A Fetish Porn Performer Reviews the ’50 Shades of Grey’ Trailer

25 July 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Outside of Comic-Con, there isn’t much happening in the movie world. Oh wait, there’s that 50 Shades of Grey trailer that was released this week in an attempt to bring balance to the force of nerd movie goodness. This is a different kind of nerdy, as we’ve found out over the course of tracking the movie’s development. It involves whips, chains and plenty of suppressed emotions from your mom’s neighborhood book club. It’s something that plenty of us around here aren’t really into — at least that anyone in the office is willing to admit — the world of Bdsm. With that in mind, we might not be the right people to dissect the mix of pain and pleasure that make E.L. James’ book such a sensation. In order to fully understand the first trailer for Sam Taylor-Johnson’s upcoming film adaptation, we asked fetish porn performer Chanel Preston to answer a few »

25 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan set the internet on fire when she debuted the new trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey on the Today show, and they are continuing promotion for the upcoming project with several interviews. When asked about filming those infamous sex scenes, Dakota revealed on Thursday that the situations themselves were actually pretty unsexy. "It's not a romantic situation, it's more technical and choreographed," Dakota said, adding, "It's more of a task." (To which Jamie laughed off and said, "Cheers!") As to their onscreen chemistry, Jamie explained that he "presumed" that the pair would set the screen on fire since they were both cast in the project but also noted that their relationship is more about "trust."

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Stars Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson Give ‘Today's’ Natalie Morales a ‘Fluffer’ Tutorial

25 July 2014 7:32 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

James novel — she's admitted that she read the entire “Fifty Shades” series –  about how they stay “in the zone” while shooting the sex scenes, Johnson joked that Dornan had a “fluffer.” Also read: TheWrap's Reactions to ‘Fifty »

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Trailer: Get Your First Peek into the Secret World of Christian Grey

24 July 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

E.L. James’ naughty fan-fic tale turned best seller Fifty Shades of Grey set the record as the fastest selling paperback of all time when it was released in 2011. Chronicling the sadomasochistic relationship between naive college grad Anastasia Steele and young entrepreneur Christian Grey, the novel wasn’t exactly popular for its writing (most of it pretty terrible) as it was for igniting the kinky imagination of readers across the world. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan were cast in the film adaptation, directed by Sam Taylor-Wood (Nowhere Boy), which is set to be released in time for Valentine’s Day — February 13, 2015. After Beyoncé debuted a teaser for the film over the weekend, featuring a new version of her hit “Crazy in Love," we...

Get crazy in love with first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey

24 July 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

“Mr. Grey will see you now.”

Journalist Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) has her first interview with the “intimidating” Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), a billionaire tycoon with very specific preferences in the bedroom, in the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey. Anastasia doesn’t know that quite yet, but she’s about to, according to the trailer that was released today forSam Taylor-Wood’s adaptation of E.L. James’ best-selling novel.

The best part of the trailer? The breathy Beyoncé soundtrack. Good move with the “Crazy In Love,” Fifty Shades. Good move.

Fifty Shades of Grey also stars singer Rita Ora, “True Blood”’s Luke Grimes, and Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River). Check out the trailer for the film below, and let us know which shirtless shot of Jamie Dornan is you're favourite. »

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Trailer: This Is About Murder, Right?

24 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Here’s a fun game to play: imagine that you have no idea what Sam Taylor-Johnson‘s Fifty Shades of Grey is about. Pretend that you’ve never heard of author E.L. James, or that you’re not aware of any casting kerfuffle surrounding the replacement of Charlie Hunnam by Jamie Dornan, or even that you know that Dakota Johnson is starring in the feature. Forget about Twilight and fan fiction and every trope that’s been layered on niche romance films over the past decade. Just get rid of all of that. (Some of you, we must note, probably already live in this state, but don’t worry, you can play, too — and you should!) Now watch this first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey. Genuine question — what the hell do you think is going on here? You’re kind of freaked out, aren’t you? If you really don’t know anything about Fifty Shades of Grey (lucky »

Let the reignited obsession over the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie begin. See video: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Star Dakota Johnson Does Not Want Her Parents to See the Movie ‘At All’ At the start of Thursday's show, “The View” hosts watched the sexy trailer for the Focus Features film, adapted from No. 1 selling novel by E.L.

Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer Introduces Dakota Johnson to Jamie Dornan

24 July 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele gets into way more than she could have possibly imagined after meeting Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey in the first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer from Universal Studios.

Forget traditional romance and courting rituals as Anastasia and Grey casually meet and eventually hook up in an elevator, leading to the older businessman -- despite Dornan looking the same age as Johnson -- leading the young college student down an erotic path into his own unconventional desires. The best taste of this path is glimpsed with a bound Anastasia on a bed in the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer's final frame.

The Internet is already abuzz with complaints about Johnson being too old for Anastasia and Dornan not being hot or seductive enough as Grey. Those are the fans speaking; non-fans are rolling their eyes.
