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.

14 November 2014 7:04 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

For those of you who are curious about this Fifty Shades of Grey film, we have a new trailer for you to watch. I’m not buying into the hype, and I’m not really expecting much from the film. I bet fans of the book are going to be disappointed in the movie because it won’t live up to their expectations and be as hardcore as they hoped.

Sam Taylor-Johnson directed the film adaptation of the E.L. James novel, and it stars Jamie Dornan as the wealthy Bdsm enthusiast Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as the timid, inexperienced Anastasia Steele.

Watch: New 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Trailer is Whips, Ice and Lips

13 November 2014 7:44 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Don't expect Fifty Shades of Grey to be as explicit as the the book by E.L. James, but this new trailer suggests you'll be getting at least a little hanky panky once the film hits theaters on Valentine's Day 2015. Based on the novel, the film centers on literature student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), who goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. Shocked yet thrilled by Grey's singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success -- his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family -- Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey's secrets and explores her own dark desires. Luke Grimes, Jennifer Ehle, Marcia Gay Harden and Max Martini co-star. Watch the new trailer »

New '50 Shades of Grey' trailer: The only 'Scandal' here is Jamie Dornan's accent

13 November 2014 7:23 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's here, breathless Earth-dwellers: the new trailer for "Fifty Shades of Grey." Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson get down to some singular-looking business in the latest spot for Universal's E.L. James adaptation, which the studio smartly unveiled during tonight's episode of "Scandal." "I exercise control in all things," says Christian. Cue heavy sighs. Cue Beyonce. Cue restraints! Look, I haven't read the book. But this trailer isn't exactly...what's the word, promising? First of all, is Christian Grey supposed to be from Northern Ireland, or is that actually Dornan's attempt at an American accent? Second of all, kill me with this terrible dialogue. Third, why so serious? Seems like they aren't having fun with this at all, and that's a pretty deadly approach for material that's essentially pulp. Lest we forget: this thing started out as "Twilight" fan fiction. But I digress, here's the trailer. Gasp pleasurably away - no one will judge you. »

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Gets Even Sexier With More S&M in Second Trailer!

13 November 2014 6:41 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie just got a whole lot hotter.

A brand-new trailer for the highly anticipated film based on the best-selling erotic novel by E.L. James debuted Thursday night during Scandal, and it's a even racier than the initial trailer that debuted in July.

Most notable perhaps is a flash of a tied-up Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) on the bed with Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) kissing her stomach. Not to mention the brief glimpses of all manner of straps and whips.

Looks like producers are aiming to put all the rumors to rest that there's no on-screen heat between Johnson and Dornan on-screen.

Two new posters for the film also debuted this week, featuring Anastasia doing her signature lip bite, and Christian tightly gripping his trademark tie in his right hand.

To all the ladies out there hoping to see Jamie Dornan whip it out in "Fifty Shades Of Grey," sorry, but it ain't happening. “There were contracts in place that said that viewers wouldn’t be seeing my, um…todger,” the actor told The Guardian.
