Fifty Shades Darker Trailer


When Ana and Christian had their first fateful meeting, neither party knew much about the real person they were meeting. Christian didn't know just how naive Ana really was and Ana didn't quite understand just how dark Christian's thoughts ran. Though from completely different backgrounds and living entirely different lives, the pair were attracted to one another and they began a relationship - one mainly brought about after Christian seducing Ana, his latest younger woman. As dark secrets were uncovered, it became known to Ana that Christian was into BDSM. Still wishing to go ahead with the relationship, Ana finds out just how far Christian is willing to go to get his thrills but realises that she can't be with a man who inflicts that level of pain on someone they care about.

Time passes, Christian continues with his business lifestyle and Ana starts a new job at a publishing house and the former lovers reunite whilst at an exhibition of photography put on by one of Ana's friends. Christian begins to realise that his feelings for Ana run deeper than the usual dominant / submissive roles that usually define his relationships. With Ana now setting the rules, the pair begin a true relationship but as stories about Christian's past are revealed and Ana is introduced to some of the women that involve his past, neither party know exactly how they'll make their relationship work without sacrificing certain aspects.

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson reprise their roles as Christian and Ana respectively. Kim Basinger is introduced to the plot as Elena Lincoln a lady Ana nicknames Mrs. Robinson after learning that she seduced Christian whilst still of a young age. Whilst Rookie Blue actor Eric Johnson is cast as Jack Hyde and Bella Heathcote as Leila Williams.

Anthropoid Trailer


Reinhard Heydrich was one of the fiercest anti-Semitic officers in the Nazi army. He authored the Final Solution plan which detailed the extermination of Jews throughout Europe and was the third most powerful member of The Nazi Party only surpassed by Hitler and Heinrich Himmler. Heydrich's reputation as one of the most dangerous and darkest officers in the regime was known throughout Europe.

Having been appointed as the head of the army in Czechoslovakia, Heydrich did his best to distance himself from any possible threat, the resistance army were few and far between and were barely operational and Heydrich's control of the region was continually strengthening.

Two Czech soldiers who were living in exile find themselves as the most important people in a mission to assassinate Heydrich. Their mission is called Anthropod and they have been trained by the British military to go into Prague and end Heydrich's reign, which was so brutal he was nicknamed The Butcher Of Prague.

Dakota Johnson Jamie Dornan

Heads up, Fifty Shades fans – a new trailer has just been released and this time, things get really kinky. Well, as kinky as possible during a PG trailer. It’s basically 2:37 minutes of body part close-ups, moaning, BDSM gear and the sparse dialogue you already know and love.

Like its predecessor, this trailer boasts a soundtrack by Beyonce, again a haunting version of her worldwide number one 'Crazy In Love'. As for Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, the film’s two stars look just as young, symmetrical and deer-in-headlight-y as in the previous trailer.

The interview doesn't go quite as well as she'd hoped, but it seems Christian has other interests in her. While he doesn't pander to the usual expectations of romance in a relationship, there's something utterly captivating and addictive about him that Anastasia just can't resist - even when he reveals to her his innermost unusual sexual desires. Thriving on the feeling of being in control, all he wants to do is tie Anastasia up and introduce her to a whole new world of sensual experiences. But is she curious enough to sign away her body to a stranger?

Dakota Johnson Jamie Dornan

If you’re not a Fifty Shades of Grey fan, that’s ok, apparently the books and upcoming movie have more than enough of those already. When the PG-13 trailer was released last Thursday, it was mostly met with sarcasm and negative comments and reviews. Because, you know, the internet. But the story of Ana Steele and Christian Grey still has a lot of momentum. Less than a week later, the teaser trailer has hit 36 million million views (as of Wednesday), making it the most watched trailer of 2014.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Diehards Finally Get Full Trailer


Dakota Johnson Jamie Dornan Charlie Hunnam

This is your moment Fifty Shades of Grey fans – the trailer for Sam Taylor-Johnson’s steamy adaptation finally dropped on Thursday. This should ease any doubts about stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, who both look pretty perfect for their respective roles.

Fifty Shades Of Grey
Story aside, the film looks visually polished.

But more than that, the trailer itself is remarkably tame. Set to a remix of Beyonce’s Crazy in Love (like the teaser from last week) the trailer includes Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey’s meeting and their deepening relationship, but it’s all firmly PG until the final three second. You guessed it, that’s when the crops and blindfolds come out and we’re reminded that this is the Fifty Shades of Grey and not just the latest soapy drama churned out by the Hollywood machine.

Anastasia Steele is a shy college student who is forced to interview an enigmatic entrepreneur named Christian Grey. Their first meeting doesn't go as well as planned and subsequently she is shocked when it appears that he has a seemingly romantic interest in her. He's not the sort to go out on drunken nights or make any of the usual romantic gestures, but Anastasia remains captivated by the intense sense of mystery surrounding him. Some of that mystery is unveiled, however, when he reveals his sexual desires to her, but it seems even then his wishes are not of the usual kind. Christian asks Anastasia to sign a document in order for them to be intimate, and that coupled with the rope and tape he recently purchased starts to make her realise just what sort of sensual adventure she's about to experience.

When young college student Anastasia Steele meets a mysterious wealthy businessman named Christian Grey, she had no idea she'd be embarking on the sexual adventure of her lifetime. While he makes it clear that he's not the type for wild nights of drunken laughs or even for a bunch of flowers and chocolates, Ana can't help but feel irresistably intrigued by the beguiling sense of unknown surrounding her new obsession. Soon though, all is revealed when Christian insists she sign a document before they enter into any kind of intimacy, and putting that together with the bunch of rope and masking tape she saw him purchase at the hardware store, she starts to realise that she's about to enter into a relationship that is more out of the ordinary than she could ever have possibly imagined.

New '50 Shades' Snap Sends Swooning Fans Into Meltdown


Jamie Dornan Dakota Johnson E.L. James Sam Taylor-Wood

Lace fans and snuff at the ready, Fifty Shades of Grey fans, because a new promotional photo has been released ahead of the upcoming saucy movie. The brand new close-up features actor Jamie Dornan as lead character Christian Grey and has set author EL James' fans tingling with anticipation for Sam Taylor-Johnson's 2015 adaptation.

Pictured sitting in a car, presumed to be the black Audi R8 Spyder detailed in the books, Grey is intently focussed on something in the middle distance. He seems to have eschewed his smart business attire in favour of a more "civilian" black leather jacket and T-shirt combo.

It's unclear whether Grey's gaze is more seductive or scowly but fans online have been speculating that Grey is staring at Ana Steel, his lover, who is played by Dakota Johnson. Many have read deeper into the photo, asking why the film's team have decided to release this particular shot.

Posted to celebrate the fictional billionaire's birthday, the shot shows Dornan clad in a leather jacket whilst driving the character's famed black Audi R8 Spyder.

Grey is gazing intently at something with that same brooding, yet slightly unsettling glare that author EL James loves to describe in her saucy trilogy. Adapted by Sam Taylor-Johnson, the 2015 movie will feature Dornan as Grey alongside Dakota Johnson, who will play the story's protagonist and narrator, Ana Steele.

The snap follows the first official promo poster for the film that was revealed on Valentine's Day this year.

Jamie Dornan Sam Taylor-Wood E.L. James

Jamie Dornan has revealed that he has a long-running dissatisfaction with his physique, despite having been a Calvin Klein model and now working on the lead role in the upcoming erotic drama, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Known for his oiled underwear adverts with Eva Mendes, breakthrough role in TV drama The Fall, and small part in 2006's Marie Antoinette, Dornan landed his first lead role in a movie after being cast as the BDSM-loving businessman Christian Grey in Sam Taylor-Johnson's 2015 adaptation of EL James' adult fiction series.

Jamie Dornan

Italian real estate agent Alessandro Protto has claimed he is the real Christian Grey. The businessman has been adding up the similarities between him and the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' character and adding on the fact he's met author E.L.

Firstly its worth noting that Protto met author E.L. James when she was in Italy. He claims he spent two days travelling around Italy with the author when she was writing about international celebrities buying properties in the country. Sounds exciting.

Now we can move on to the similarites. Firstly Protto like Mr Grey is a successful businessman, but what’s even better is  Protto runs a firm called ‘Proto Organization Holding’. If that sounds familiar it might be because you’ve heard of ‘Grey Enterprise Holding’, yes the firm owned by Christian Grey in the novels. Just a coincidence? Protto thinks not.

Next is the even more spooky fact that much like E.L. James’s infamous character, Protto too drove an Audi, remarkable. Another fact that further cemented the real estate agents belief was the location of Grey’s office. Protto told the New York Daily News, ”my office is located at the 8th floor. It is the highest in the building. I came from nothing, so I see top floors as a metaphor for achievement and success.”

Despite Protto’s admissions another character trait he shares with the fictional businessman is, shyness when it comes to speaking to reporters, something he might be working on. He described himself and Christian has having the same ‘mystery’ saying, "Christian Grey doesn’t like speaking to reporters, so he builds up a mystery that surrounds him,everyone knows he made it, but nobody knows how he reached success. Same with me,” What’s worse is since rumors started that Protto could be the real life Grey he’s said to have received all sorts of ‘indecent’ proposals and also a fan club set up by a group of Swiss women. Reacting to his new found fame he said, "at times it can be pretty annoying. I don't like gossip and showbiz, I'm a businessman, that's what I do for a living and it is my main purpose in life."

That's Valentine's Day in case anyone needed clarification. It's difficult to consider the excessively controlling and fairly disturbing, Christian Grey a romantic character, but each to their own. Nevertheless, if the producers of the films consider sex contracts and women gaining promotions through their sexual conduct then so be it - we live in a sad and twisted world.

Pop star Rita Ora announced at the weekend that she had been cast in the role of Christian Grey's younger adoptive sister in the Fifty Shades of Grey erotic trilogy adaptation.

Jamie Dornan "Doesn't Fear" His '50 Shades Of Grey' Role


Jamie Dornan Dakota Johnson Sam Taylor-Wood Amelia Warner

Jamie Dornan was announced as the replacement for the departed Charlie Hunnam to star in the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey movie adaptation weeks ago, earning him one of Hollywood's most attention-grabbing starring roles to appear on the upcoming film radar. Speaking as the cover star for Entertainment Weekly, Dornan addressed the pressures of his upcoming role, as well as the route he took to get to where he is and how he is preparing himself for the role.

This is by far the most high-profile role the Northern Irish actor has been given in his time as an actor, yet this is a project that Dornan says he is looking forward to, rather than one whose gradual approach he is dreading. After taking over from Hunnam after he unceremoniously walked away from the project in mid-October, Dornan has had little time to prepare for his role, but as he explained in the recent interview, he has already begun putting in the work to achieve the right body look for Grey, as well as finding the right mindset to portray a sexually deviant billionaire.

“I certainly don’t fear it,” Dornan began his talk. “I already got a glimpse into working with [director] Sam [Taylor-Johnson] at the test, and I’d met [co-star] Dakota [Johnson] by then. So I had a glimpse into how I felt it would be if I got the part. None of it scared me.”

Jamie Dornan: Who Is He And Why Is He The Best Choice To Play Christian Grey?


Jamie Dornan Charlie Hunnam

Jamie Dornan, now heres a name that doesn't really exude familiarity or instant recognition. That was until he was chosen for the lead male role in the Universal and Focus Features adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey however. Now Dornan can expect to see himself being mentioned on a daily basis and his stock price rise to all new levels - at least until the 50 Shades film comes out that is.

Who Is Jamie Dornan? Cheat Sheet For 'Fifty Shades Of Grey's' Christian


Jamie Dornan Dakota Johnson E.L. James

Jamie Dornan has signed on to play Christian Grey in Universal and Focus Films' adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey - the bestselling erotic novel by E.L James. Dornan - an Irish actor with only a modest CV - replaces Charlie Hunnam who infamously backed out of the project just 2 weeks before filming was set to begin in Vancouver.

It's likely that Dornan came to the producer's attentions for his excellent turn in the BBC series The Fall, with The X-Files' Gillian Anderson. Playing a bereavement psychologist moonlighting as serial killer, Dornan proved he could do the whole glassy-eyed maniac thing. 

Speaking with Digital Spy of one particularly disturbing scene, the former model said, "I spent a day strangling myself on the back of a door while I masturbated to a driving license of one of my victims. That's not an easy day at the office! And they cut it out! I couldn't believe it-they didn't even tell me. When I first watched the series, it just wasn't there!"

Jamie Dornan

British actor Jamie Dornan has been chosen to portray 'Christian Grey' in the film adaptation of '50 Shades of Grey', reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Dornan will be replacing fellow Brit Charlie Hunnam, who backed out of the leading man role earlier this month (Oct 12th).

Why Jamie Dornan Represents A Huge Risk For '50 Shades Of Grey' Movie


Jamie Dornan

The 50 Shades of Grey cast is in turmoil, as we know. Charlie Hunnam, the strange but intriguing choice to play billionaire Christian Grey, pulled out of the project owing to his immersive television schedule.

Of course, both and he and his agent will have known all to well his commitments to Sons of Anarchy and it's far more likely - as reports suggest - that the relative newcomer was overawed by both the opposition to his casting and the general fervour for the film.

The 50 Shades of Grey movie is a funny old thing really. It's in Hollywood no-man's land. Nobody's quite sure whether it has the potential to do enough business to spawn a franchise - we're certain it does, though not everyone in convinced.

Actor Jamie Dornan is the latest in a long line of rumored successors to the role of Christian Grey after Charlie Hunnam walked away from the adaptation of author EL James' erotic trilogy.

One Christian Grey To Rule Them All - Jamie Dornan Is The Latest Actor To Be Considered


E.L. James Charlie Hunnam Jamie Dornan

Charlie Hunnam quit the Fifty Shades of Grey project a few days ago, but the ripples of his exit are still being felt throughout the internet. This is mostly because, as of today, there is still no news as to who will replace the Sons of Anarchy actor and take on the role of Christian Grey. One fan favorite for the part seems to be Matt Bomer, although he hasn’t publicly expressed any interest and his name reportedly doesn’t feature in Universal’s uber-secret list of Christian Grey hopefuls.

Charle Hunnam, Sons of Anarchy Filming
Hunnam's exit has thrown the production in a state of chaos.

Said list includes a few actors, whom Universal chairman Donna Langley, producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author EL James are reportedly considering for the role, now that they are left in a desperate scramble to replace Hunnam in time for the start of filming – November 1. This oh-so-secretive list – part of which was nonetheless revealed by The Hollywood Reporter – also includes British TV stars Jamie Dornan, 31, and Christian Cooke, 26.

Is Little Known Actor Jamie Dornan The New Christian Grey?


Charlie Hunnam Jamie Dornan Alexander Skarsgard

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie appears to be in turmoil. With now just 17 days until the first day of filming in Vancouver, the project - headed by Sam Taylor-Johnson - is without a leading man after Charlie Hunnam dropped out, citing a packed schedule.

Of course, Hunnam and his agent will have known his commitments to Sons of Anarchy when initially taking the part, therefore reports the actor got cold feet are probably not too far off the mark.

Hunnam was set to play the young, rich businessman Christian Grey in the big screen adaptation of E.L. James 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' which will undoubtedly contain the explicit sex scenes featured in the controversial novel.

Charlie Hunnam is out! The actor sensationally left behind his role as Christian Grey in the upcoming FiftyShades of Grey movie adaptation following varied reports stating his schedule was too packed up already and that he had gotten cold feet over the immense pressure of the role.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alexander Skarsgard is among the favorites to succeed Hunnam, with his steamy scenes in True Blood and his obvious sex appeal boding well with producers.
