Spank You Very Much: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ TV Spot Goes for Subtlety
November 21, 2014 - Fifty Shades of Grey
That’s not to contend there’s no spirit of kink in this commercial. The Red Room of Pain is glimpsed, finish with several whips. There’s a blindfold, a bit of hand-tying, and billionaire BDSM fan Christian Grey coyly observant “My tastes are most some-more singular.”
The altogether sense is of a some-more required adore story with a kink cranked adult a bit, and it has us wondering how closely executive Sam Taylor-Johnson and screenwriter Kelly Marcel are hewing to a source element by E.L. James. Universal is apparently offered Fifty Shades of Grey as a grand though still erotically charged romance, counting on a book’s repute to do a voluptuous complicated lifting. But is that a film that Taylor-Johnson is indeed making?
Will a movie’s Christian Grey be a softer, gentler chronicle of his printed counterpart? Or is he still a man who, when asked if he’s going to make adore to virtuous college tyro Anastasia Steele, replies, “Firstly, we don’t make love. we fuck… hard. Secondly, there’s a lot more
paperwork to do, and thirdly, we don’t nonetheless know what you’re in for?”
Jamie Dornan, a Calvin Klein indication who starred on a array The Fall alongside Gillian Anderson, snagged his biggest purpose to date as Grey, a 27-year-old billionaire with an roughly reptilian coldness. Dakota Johnson, best famous for her brief coming in The Social Network, stars as Anastasia, who stumbles into a contractually-obliged attribute with a spank-happy Grey.
The film is unequivocally most focused on a heated attribute between these doubtful lovers, though there’s room for a ancillary expel that includes Jennifer Ehle, Marcia Gay Harden, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, and Max Martini.
Eloise Mumford, who plays Steele’s best crony and roommate Kate, advise to IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick that Fifty Shades of Grey won’t skimp on shockingly amorous moments.
“It’s also only good to be a part
of a film that’s so daring. we try to select work that I’m challenged by
and that we find argumentative and daring,” Mumford pronounced in an disdainful interview. “This film is incredibly
daring. This film is for grownups, it’s about grownups and we think
people are going to be unequivocally gratified when they go to see it.”
Just final week, Universal suggested a full melodramatic trailer. Like this TV spot, a trailer played it flattering classy, so fans will have to wait until Feb 13, 2015 to find out if Fifty Shades of Grey does probity to James’s bestselling “mommy porn.”
