Well, it was bound to happen at some point. When you have a large enough following behind a piece of work, a phenomenon is created and no one can seem to avoid it (Twilight, for example). It’ll surround us on the streets, bookstores, magazine racks, clothing stores, etc. This “lightning-in-a-bottle” effect seemed to happen to a terrible piece of fiction that opened up the proverbial “Pandora’s Box” in fiction and made something taboo popular today.
While I made a promise not to talk about this movie on my own personal blog, I cannot ignore the momentum that this film will have before its release date. I consider myself to be a well-read individual, willing to give any book a first try but there are some novels that I can’t see myself casually reading.
With all of this being said, the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey:
When Literature student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) goes to interview wealthy but tormented billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), her life is changed forever. As they accept their mutual attraction, Christian brings her into his world, revealing his secrets, and allowing Anastasia to explore her own desires.
I’m fairly sure that fans of the book trilogy will be flocking to the theaters to see this film, possibly pulling their reluctant boyfriends to go with them for a Valentine’s Day date. Will this movie be able to capitalize on the unbelievable momentum since its release to the public? Only time will tell.
Fifty Shades of Grey premieres Valentine’s Day 2015.
