So now that we’ve had some time to process the new trailer for the highly anticipated 50 Shades of Grey movie, let’s dig in and discuss.
I have to give credit to Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) who I never thought could pull off this role, I don’t know what I expected but it wasn’t her. Now having seen the trailer, I was completely mistaken. She absolutely kills it in the 2 minute teaser that shows her first encounter with Christian at his office. She’s got the role of ‘innocent virgin white girl’ nailed and I can’t wait to see their chemistry explode on the big screen. Okay so maybe explode wasn’t the right word to use there?
Moving on to the leading man, who I completely supported for this role since day one. When they named Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) I knew he wasn’t the man for the job. It was a huge sigh of relief when he dropped out and the casting directors announced Jamie Dornan would play the role of Christian Grey. I mean he’s gorgina, he has an accent (although we don’t hear that in the movie)…but I have to say I kind’ve didn’t like him in this trailer. Is it just me? He almost looks like an 18 year old guy whose just running the family business because his daddy would rather play golf than actually work. Right? Wrong? And then when he started talking about his ‘hobbies’, I was like ‘yeah right!…you!?’ then he shows Anastasia his sex room and I’m all like…’no that does not belong to you, you look like an alter boy’
So I’m a little conflicted right now because I don’t know what to make of this, I think the trailer was genius, the music (a special Beyonce version of Crazy in Love) hit the spot…but like everyone else my eyes are on Christian and I kind’ve expected a little more…’you scare the S*** outta me’ and less ‘it really looks like wardrobe picked out that suit for you, and you have no idea how to tie a tie’
Comments/Arguments. We need to discuss because the movie doesn’t drop until Valentine’s Day 2015.
If you haven’t seen the trailer, watch it below:
o.m.g. Just watch, let it sink in. We’ll discuss later.
If you’re having trouble picturing Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey…here’s a little help.
There’s a piano…for those middle of the night sessions (readers know what I’m talking about).

O-M-G the news of the summer has finally been revealed on the last day of summer! The two actors who will play main characters Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele of the popular book series ’50 Shades of Grey’ have finally been revealed!
Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) will play the dashing Christian Grey…I still don’t know how I feel about this.
Dakota Johnson…never even heard of her is playing the role of Anastasia Steele. I honestly don’t how I feel about this pairing…but I trust the production team and I can’t wait to see these two in full costume. Woohoo!
What do you guys think of these two? She actually looks older than I thought for Anastasia but turns out she’s only 24! And Charlie Hunnam who we all know as bad boy Jackson on Sons of Anarchy will have to clean up major to play Christian!
Ah! This is exciting news for all the 50 Shades fans out there. Not a huge fan of the books, but I am super excited for the film adaptation, especially because there are so many names floating around about who will play Christian Grey.
Garrett Hedlund was offered the role of Grey, but apparently turned it down because he didn’t want to commit to the eventual sequels. This is the first legitimate report coming out of production talks. His name wasn’t even on the list for potential actors to play Grey, so this came as a huge surprise. Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer and Henry Cavill have been in most of the rumours.
As the film is set to release in August 14, production should be starting anytime, and it will be any day now that the full cast list is revealed. I’m surprised they’ve kept it a secret this long.
At Comic Con 2013, E.L James said Ian Somerhalder will not get the part of Christian Grey.
