Film adaptation of EL James' blockbuster erotic novel opens in cinemas on Valentine's Day
A new TV spot has been released for the eagerly-anticipated Fifty Shades Of Grey film.
The film adaptation of E L James’ best-selling novel has been directed by Sam Taylor Johnson (Nowhere Boy). Starring Jamie Dornan (The Fall) as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson (daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson) as Anastasia Steele, James’ erotica phenomenon follows demure student Steele as she falls for the charms of kinky billionaire Grey.
Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam famously walked away from the role of Grey following an online outcry from fans who challenged his suitability for the part. The actor cited scheduling conflicts with his TV work as his real reason for leaving.
Also starring Rita Ora, Marcia Gay Harden, Luke Grimes, Max Martini and Jennifer Ehle, Fifty Shades of Grey is due in cinemas February 14 2015 – just in time for Valentine’s Day. The second full-length trailer for the film was released earlier this month (November) and can be viewed here.
