It's like the metaphorical third date today for "Fifty Shades Of Grey" fans. The erotic bestseller is gearing up to hit a multiplex near you, and the first trailer has arrived today to give everyone a peek under the sheets (sorry) at what Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele will be getting up to. And recently, Jamie Dornan shared some his preparation in playing the billionaire who sets his eye on a literature student.
Is there anything Beyoncé can't do? She's a pop culture force of nature who is also queen of whatever stage she happens to appear on, and now, her social media presence is being utilized to tease movie trailers. Why? Because Beyoncé, that's why. And so, don't find it too surprising that she's unveiled the first teaser for the trailer for "Fifty Shades Of Grey."

Although we have broadened our horizons somewhat, the intersection of music and film is something still very much important to us. To that end, we were very excited to hear news that two of our favorite composers would be tackling new projects.
One of the surprise hits of the year was this summer’s cheap Ethan Hawke-starring horror movie “The Purge,” and with the $3 million-budgeted film making nearly $90 million worldwide, you better believe Universal wants a re-up.
This is what's known as "appealing to international markets." While few outside the blogosphere in North America know what a Rita Ora is (a new "Star Wars" character?), in the U.K. she's a chart topping pop singer and tabloid regular. And so, in a blockbuster sexytime movie starring two people most people never heard of, this might help get the word out abroad.
The famed/dreaded NC-17 may be seen as a curse for studio films, but there's no doubt that the rarely used rating (which is usually appealed or finds the filmmakers editing their movie to get an R) certainly makes things a bit difficult for the movies that go out with that tag. At least as far as studio pictures go, marketing and screening a NC-17 rated movie becomes harder as some theater chains and mainstream advertisers in print and media won't run campaigns for those films. But dreaming doesn't cost anything and that's what one producer is doing for a highly anticipated, upcoming film.
There is probably an easy joke here about how good things come (ha) to those who wait, and it's never good to rush into bed or something, but it looks like Universal and Focus Features have decided to give "Fifty Shades Of Grey" the space it needs to do it right (sorry). So for those of you who were looking to go the sex room of your local multiplex next year, you'll have to hold on just a bit longer (hardy har har).
Even with a new writer polishing the script, and a production start that has been pushed back a month, Universal and Focus Features are still feeling good and aroused about "Fifty Shades Of Grey." Casting continues for the erotica drama, with another name being strapped on for next summer's sexytime offering.
