Here’s your new ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ trailer

fifty shades of grey trailer

Is it 50 Shades of Grey? Fifty Shades of Grey? I prefer the former but I’ve seen the latter a lot lately, so we’re going to switch things up a bit. However you prefer to stylize your numbers, one thing is for certain: that shitty Twilight fanfiction turned hit book series and now soon to be movie has released a new trailer that’s sure to get you ladies as wet as the Sahara down below. Seriously, take a look:

Okay, so let me get this right. Christian Grey is a sexual predator who is basically a total control freak and kind of an asshole, but hey, it’s okay – she likes it. She just never knew she could like it so much. Hurts so good, etc, right? I mean, this is fucking AWFUL. That’s not to say that S&M is awful, or that people can’t have whatever type of relationship they damn well want to have so long as it’s two consenting adults, but like… really? Really with this?

That being said, I will probably be forced to see this garbage, so I’d better try and warm to it now, I suppose.

Charlie Hunnam: ‘Doing 50 Shades of Grey would have been a disaster’

charlie hunnam men's health

I don’t know anything about Charlie Hunnam. I don’t watch Sons of Anarchy, I’ve never seen him in an interview and I don’t pay much attention to him in my daily life. That being said, I feel like he must be a rather clever and respectable young man, and that is based entirely on his decision to back out of 50 Shades of Grey because he realized how disastrous it would be.

In a new interview with Men’s Health (via US Weekly), Charlie talks a bit about his decision not to take on the role of Christian Grey, though he still swears it’s because of his shooting schedule and not because he would never be taken seriously again.

“I was going to finish playing a psychopath who’d just lost his wife [in Sons], and five days later I’d be on set playing Christian Grey,” the hunky 34-year-old told the mag for its December issue. “I was like, ‘This is going to be a f—ing disaster.’ It was the opposite of how I’ve tried to ground my career, not stretch myself too thin, and always do my homework.

Hunnam further explained that “there’s a tendency in this Hollywood machinery to take on too much. You end up not being able to give everything you want.” He learned early on that that kind of lifestyle doesn’t work for him. “Since I was young, I’ve been aware that I need time to myself to process everything,” he told Men’s Health.

Well, whatever the reason, dropping out of that softcore shit show is probably the best decision he’ll ever make in life. Keep in mind that he could have had far more fame and fortune by doing 50 Shades than he’ll ever get on Sons of Anarchy, at least mainstream-wise, so I think it says something of his character that he shied away from that.

Here’s one more photo, for your troubles:

Jamie Dornan’s penis won’t be in ’50 Shades of Grey’

jamie dornan

We already knew that the 50 Shades of Grey movie was going to suck because a) the story itself sucks and b) they’re taking out all the rough sex, which was, you know, kinda the point of the book series. Well, now it gets even realer for those hoping for something to touch themselves to: Jamie Dornan won’t be showing his penis as Christian Grey. Oh, dear.

From The Guardian:

When asked how graphic the film is, he pauses, weighs his answer. “You want to appeal to as wide an audience as possible without grossing them out. You don’t want to make something gratuitous, and ugly, and graphic.”

So no sex then? “Sam is a very bright woman, so there might be some suggestive elements to it, but I haven’t seen it at this stage, so it is hard for me to say. I’m aware of what we shot, and it wasn’t as if we shot a film without any action.”

Was he completely in the nude? “There were contracts in place that said that viewers wouldn’t be seeing my, um…”

Todger? He laughs. “Yeah, my todger.”

Not like Ewan McGregor, then. He has it written into his contracts that his must be seen, at every possible opportunity. The laugh again. “Does he? Well, maybe Ewan has a more impressive girth.”

Always impressive when a grown man can’t seem to use the word “penis”, but whatever. I’m not quite sure how they’re going to fill 2 hours of screentime considering they seem to have cut out everything from the book, but who knows. I’m surprised this thing isn’t going to have a PG-13 rating, from all the “news” we’ve been hearing about it.

Beyonce is headlining the ’50 Shades of Grey’ soundtrack

Here’s a bit of news you probably didn’t see coming, but also probably isn’t all that surprising: Beyoncé is headlining the soundtrack for the 50 Shades of Grey movie. I sort of feel like this is an awful decision, but I suppose from a financial perspective, it’s a no-brainer.

What exactly she’ll be doing – as in, how many songs, whether it’ll be something new or from the last album, etc – no one’s sure, but I suppose we’ll be finding out soon enough, since Bey herself posted this on Instagram this morning:

What do you think of the Beyonce/50 Shades team up? Disaster? Dream?

Here’s a raunchy ’50 Shades of Grey’ photo for you

50 Shades of Grey isn’t coming out in theatres until next year, but stars Jamie Dornan and that other girl (Dakota Johnson) have to keep interest up. With that in mind, Jamie shared the above photo on Instagram this past week and everyone was going nuts over it (no pun intended).

I know I’m kinda not the target audience here, but like… no thanks. There’s nothing sexy or intriguing about this, or him, so I’m not getting all the hype. I’m sure it’ll make millions at the box office, though. Housewives are bored and horny, so it’ll do well.

Jamie Dornan already hates ’50 Shades of Grey’

Jamie Dornan

Welp, some people need to learn their lessons the hard way, and it seems Jamie Dornan is already feeling a bit of 50 Shades of Grey fatigue as he’s really wishing he could do a role where he’s not tying women to beds all day. Of course, he had that opportunity before he decided to take this part, but unfortunately, his role as Christian Grey is probably going to put a big ol’ damper on the career potential he once had.

From The Guardian:

“There are a couple of classic knots I know now,” says the 31-year-old, “and I’ve put them to good use far too many times recently. In fact I’d like to do a job where I don’t have to tie women to beds.”

Of the attention he’s received for his first big Hollywood role, he says: “The whole thing’s ridiculous.” Then he falls silent. “It’s just all a bit silly the way it works. Another pause. “I think I could lose my mind.” By contrast, coming back from Fifty, as he calls it, straight on to The Fall and Belfast, “felt like coming home, in the loveliest way”.

Hey, side newsflash: The Fall is SO GOOD, and he was a total creepster in it. Also, he thinks it’s ridiculous NOW? He wants another role NOW? Before this movie has even come out? There’s a year to go before that happens, so methinks he needs to buck up and get used to it, because this is going to be one life and career-ruining ride, dude.

This Is the Real Life Christian Grey

Sure, 50 Shades of Grey is just repurposed Twilight fanfiction (no, literally, it is), but who was E.L. James getting hot and steamy in her knickers for when writing her “original” story? There has to be a real Christian Grey behind the character, right?

Well, turns out, there is – 39-year-old Italian real estate agent Alessandro Proto, seen in the photo above, was apparently James’ main inspiration to write due to their steamy love affair, LOL.

From the New York Daily News:

The duo met back in 2010 when James was touring Italy writing about international celebrities snapping up properties in the country.

Proto, who claims to have brokered home deals with stars such as Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Madonna, spent two days travelling with the author from Milan to Lake Como. He claims James featured several aspects of that journey in her books, where Grey slowly turns 21-year-old Anastasia Steele into his own personal sex slave.

“The firm Grey runs in the book is called Grey Enterprise Holding. Mine is called Proto Organization Holding,” the former encyclopedia salesman, born in Milan, said.

“When I met E.L. James I used to drive a R8 Audi,” he added, saying it was also mirrored in the fiction.

Proto says the top floor location of his office was used in the book.

“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,” he said.

Notoriously media-shy Proto, who’s only given four interviews in the last four years, claims his “mystique” also influenced the saga’s main character.

“Christian Grey doesn’t like speaking to reporters, so he builds up a mystery that surrounds him,” he said. “Everyone knows he made it, but nobody knows how he reached success. Same with me,” he added.

Proto also revealed that, during his time with James, she asked why he never granted interviews. “I just told her the truth. I wanna focus on my job, nothing else,” he replied.

LOL, uh… wait. So, how long did they date? Was it the two days traveling or ongoing? Also, why is this dude so amped up to claim himself as the real life Christian Grey when Christian Grey was kind of a dick?

When it comes to his sex life, at least, Proto says he’s more “old-fashioned” but that because people figured out he was Christian Grey (HOW?), he gets a lot of “indecent proposals” on his work email.

“Everything that has to do with S&M is pure imagination, I assure you. I’m an old fashioned man when it comes to sex, I’m not into that kind of fantasies,” he added.

Aight, bro, whatever you say.
