So it's been a little while since we've reported any news regarding the adaptation of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, from the wildly popular book of the same name by author E.L. James.The film has been shooting for quite some time now, with production shifting away from our neighbor to the north in Vancouver, Canada, to the sunny shores of Florida due to extremely cold weather (polar vortex people).So details, photos and the like have been scant to say the least, but today, we have something pretty cool.
Focus Features, along with director Sam Taylor Wood, have released the first official poster for the highly anticipated psycho-sexual drama, and it prominently features the star of the show - Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey.Here it is:
So, yeah, this poster doesn't exactly blow us away with new details, but it certainly gives you an idea of the film's tone.I dig the minimalist vibe here though - just Christian overlooking Seattle, Washington in a million-dollar suit from his massive office window.At the very least, it's mysterious.I assume that bodes well for the zillions of fans out there.
Here's a synopsis of the story, in case you've been living under a rock for the last few years and have no idea what this story is about:
When unworldly student, Anastasia Steele, first encounted the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur, Christian Grey, it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and ultimately, repelled by Christian's singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees.
Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian's opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity. And Christian must overcome his compulsion to control as he wrestles with the demons of a tormented past.
FIFTY SHADES OF GREY stars Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, Max Martini, Luke Grimes and Rita Ora.It hits theaters February 14, 2015.
