With the release of 'Fifty Shade of Grey' a week ago, the film has reached an incredible box-office total - and it isn't over yet.
After just a week on release, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' has already passed $100 million box office in the US and $300 million globally. It has claimed the title as the most successful R-rated film opening ever and it's Universal's best-ever opening in 30 territories. The movie is also one of the biggest grossing movies directed by a woman.

Ironically for a kinky romance, the film's $85 million opening in America claimed the record for a February release from Mel Gibson's 'The Passion of the Christ'. In the UK, 'Fifty Shades' had the biggest ever debut for an 18-certificate movie and the biggest for a film that isn't a sequel or part of a franchise.

Cinema goers around the world have been behaving badly at showings of Fifty Shades of Grey. But it has nothing to do with fooling around on the back row! In Glasgow, three women were arrested after they assaulted a man during a screening on Saturday (14th February). The victim reportedly asked the rowdy women to be quiet during the film and in response they assaulted him.

With the success of "Fifty Shades", a couple of familiar issues have resurfaced.
Fifty Shades of Grey is currently dominating the North American box office, raking in $81.7 million domestically and $239.7 million globally. Not bad for a film based on glorified Twilight fanfic, right? The movie, which centers around the shy and inexperienced college senior Anastacia Steele and her domineering love interest Christian Grey, went on to break a few records this weekend, including the highest gross for a Presidents' Day weekend opener and the biggest debut for an R-rated flick.
Fifty Shades of Creepy?
Meanwhile, all over the blogosphere, people are raging against the unhealthy relationship patterns that E. L. James' story ostensibly promotes.

Happy Valentine's Day, love birds. Here's the movie situation.
Happy Valentine's Day weekend. Fifty Shades of Grey made $81,7 million. Clearly, despite the fact that noone will admit to having seen the thing, it's enjoying a stellar debut. Because what better way to spend the holiday than to watch a movie about whips, chains and contractually binding relationships with your sweetheart, right?
Apparently Fifty Shades has tapped into some deep-seeded desires in its audience. Or it's just really good marketing.
Fifty Shades, getting a boost from a Valentine's Day opening, was released earlier in the week in 57 foreign markets. It took in an additional $158 million overseas, for a global total of $240 million. It also got a boost from early Thursday night screenings, which made $8,6 million.

Boyhood takes the top prize at the British Academy Film Awards, Fifty Shades of Grey holds its world premiere in Berlin, and new trailers arrive for Apatow's Trainwreck, the Poltergeist remake, the N.W.A. biopic, Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and the Hitman movie...
Fifty Shadows of Grey held its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, attended by stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, as well as director Sam Taylor-Johnson and her actor-husband Aaron, plus novelist E.L. James. There have been virtually no press screenings prior to the film's release this weekend.

After all the hype, it's impossible not to expect steam from this adaptation of E.L. James' mommy-porn bestseller, but the average episode of Red Shoe Diaries is friskier than this movie. Still, it's a well written and played drama, building an unusual romance with a series of scenes that are sometimes sexy but never actually transgressive. And the nicest surprise is that in the hands of director Sam Taylor-Johnson it becomes a witty tale of female empowerment.
It's set in the American Northwest, where Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) is finishing her studies as an English literature major when she's asked by her journalist roommate Kate (Eloise Mumford) to interview Seattle's most eligible bachelor, billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). Ana's awkwardly confident approach immediately gets under his skin, and he pursues her as if she's a corporate acquisition, complete with non-disclosure agreements and a contract that would make her submissive to his dominant. But she isn't so sure about all of this, and as she falls for him, she begins to make him break his own rules. Of course he thinks she should be punished for that.
Essentially, this film is mere foreplay, as the push and pull between Ana and Christian cycles through various set-pieces on the way to an ending that is clearly designed to get fans in a lather for films based on the second and third novels in the trilogy. And the studio would be wise to keep Taylor-Johnson and screenwriter Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr Banks, another story of male-female control) on board, as they have clearly beefed up James' novel with a strong dose of wry humour, bringing out the deeper themes rather than focussing on the under-developed plot and characters.

At just 25, Dakota Johnson found tackling the lead role in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to be a seriously big opportunity.

Mr. Grey doesn't see it that way however; on the contrary, he develops a strong romantic fixation with her. Anastasia is flattered, but soon realises that this guy isn't the sort to take her to take her out for romantic meals or shower her with gifts. Nonetheless, he is an enigmatic presence in her life that she cannot hope to resist, and she soon finds herself treading deeper and deeper into this man's life. As their relationship progresses, he reveals his unusual sexual desires which involves Anastasia signing a written document in order to give him permission to do whatever he likes with her. Enchanted and seduced by the sense of unknown that lies ahead, she agrees.
Fifty Shades of Grey is pretty damn sexy.
Fifty Shades of Grey has 20 minutes of sex scenes, meaning it will be the raunchiest mainstream movie for over 10 years. According to the Sunday Times, one-fifth of the film will be made up of sexual scenes - this despite director Sam Taylor-Johnson claiming it was more "romantic".

"I think the sex scenes are integral to the story. They are not gratuitous," she added later to Variety.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' has avoided the restrict NC-17 rating in the U.S.
It is one of the most anticipated movies of 2015 - but of the hype surrounding Fifty Shades of Grey centers on how Sam Taylor-Johnson has chosen to depict the racier passages from E.L James' book. That question may have been answered - at least in part - with the news that the film has avoided the restrictive NC-17 rating from US censors.
Jamie Dornan plays Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey
The movie, about a handsome billionaire and his submissive plaything, has been handed the R rating, referencing "strong sexual content including dialogue, some unusual behavior and graphic nudity." That rating means those under 17 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian in the US, though does suggest that the content is milder than initially anticipated.

The new trailer for "Fifty Shades of Grey" will enlighten you on the subject of BDSM, as imagined by E. L. James.
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.
The new trailer hints at Christian Grey's troubled past.
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 difference is that this one features some more BDSM paraphernalia – namely a leather crop, chains, ice cubes, scarves – this is about as far as the trailer goes.

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?

Could the erotic romance join the blockbusters club next year?
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 fans are coming out of the woodwork to boost the trailer's popularity.
The first book in E. L. James’ erotic romance trilogy has sold over 100 million copies worldwide, so the question is, where did all of those book readers go?

After multiple stumbles, fans can finally feast their eyes on the full trailer.
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.
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.

It's Christian Grey... he's wearing leather... and he's driving a car.
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.

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.

Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas are sadly splitting after nearly 20 years of marriage. What went wrong for one of Hollywood's longest-running couples?
Power couple Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith, the beacon of hope and an icon of longevity when it come to Hollywood relationships, have split after nearly 19 years together. The news has shocked fans who had always believed that the couple were still happy together in their long marriage, particularly since their affectionate displays just earlier this year. The couple released a joint statement, explaining: “We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalise our 20 years’ marriage in a loving and friendly manner, honouring and respecting each other, our family and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together.”
Couples were shocked to hear that Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas, pictured holding hands in March, were divorcing
Banderas and Griffith met on the set on their 1995 romantic-comedy film Two Much. At the time he was married to Ana Leza, whom he had wed in 1987. The marriage ended when he and Griffith began a relationship and he divorced Leza in 1996, marrying Griffiths in a small, private ceremony in London just a month later. The pair have a 17-year-old daughter called Stella together, while Griffiths has two older children from previous relationships.

Melanie Griffiths and Antonio Banderas are divorcing after 18 seemingly happy years together. The couple's separation was uncovered by a US entertainment website on Friday (6th June).
Cue the unpleasant tattoo removal! Melanie Griffiths and Antonio Banderas are divorcing and Griffith's heart tattoo of Antonio's name will certainly need to go. Just remember the unfortunate Winona Rider-Johnny Depp 'Wino Forever' debacle. But, besides Griffiths' lack of foresight, why are the couple separating?
Melanie Griffiths and Antonio Banderas are divorcing after 18 years of marriage.
Sources speaking to TMZ, who first broke the news, claim the divorce is amicable. However, Griffiths filed the paperwork and the documents cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for their separation. The 56-year-old actress is also asking for spousal support and joint custody of their daughter Stella. Fortunately, should proceedings take a turn for the worst, custody won't be an issue for long as Stella turns 18 in September. The separation of property may cause some problems as the couple have numerous homes both in the US and in Banderas' native Spain.

We know the cast of 50 Shades of Grey, but it's time to get to know their characters a little better.
Is50 Shades of Grey really not out yet? Nope, we’ve still got ten months to wait until we see Jamie Dornan in all his Christian Grey glory, but that doesn't mean we cant start getting excited now.

The preview of 'Fifty Shades of Grey', aired at the CinemaCon in Las Vegas earlier this week, is considerably more subtle than the overall subject of the books would suggest.
In a trilogy of books in which spanking and sex contracts are the norm, audiences will be surprised to hear there's little sex in the preview of Fifty Shades of Grey. Whilst fans are busy creating their own trailers in which S&M is definitely present, Universal Pictures, the studio behind the Sam Taylor Johnson directed films, are ensuring the films remain on the "vanilla" side of the sexual tracks.

It's difficult to understand how a movie about fast cars, tough guys and feisty women could be so little fun to watch. But the filmmakers, working from a popular videogame, have managed to make something only a gaming nerd could love. It's strikingly well shot, with a likeable cast and an eye-catching use of real stuntwork, but the limp script leaves it utterly joyless. Just a tiny hint of self-awareness goes a long way in these kinds of movies.
Our hero is Toby (Paul), a super-talented driver and mechanic stuck in small-town New York while his high school rival Dino (Cooper) makes millions on the racing circuit. Dino has also stolen Toby's ex-girlfriend (Johnson), and rubs salt in the wound by asking Toby to fix up a wildly valuable Mustang for him. Toby needs the cash to save his garage, so takes on the job with his pals (Cudi, Malek and Rodriguez). But things take a dark turn when Dino leaves Toby to take the fall for manslaughter. And when he gets out of prison two years later, Toby vows to get revenge, working with hellcat racing chick Julia (Poots) to enter the underground winner-take-all race organised by a radio deejay (Keaton).
Despite trying to fool us with various plot twists, the film's script is so by-the-books that we can predict everything that will happen next. So as it heads to its jaw-droppingly implausible finale, there isn't a single moment that surprises us. All we can do is try to engage with the characters, but they take themselves so seriously that this isn't easy. Clearly, director Waugh is much more interested in the cars than the people. So at least the driving scenes are visceral and sometimes thrilling in that choreographed stunt-driver sort of way. And they're notable because there isn't a digital effect in sight.

The new and improved Jamie Dornan can now walk just like Chritstian Grey should.
Just because Jamie Dornan is a model, that doesn’t mean he always had the model strut. The Fifty Shades of Grey star revealed as much during his appearance on The Graham Norton Show last night. Apparently, Dornan’s walk wasn’t hopeless, just a little too bouncy for the confident character he’s portraying in Fifty Shades.
Jamie Dornan had the look down, but he couldn't quite master the strut.
