Striving for legitimacy, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ books Berlin Film Festival …
December 23, 2014 - Fifty Shades of Grey
Sam Taylor-Johnson’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” will arrive to theaters in Feb 2015 with a handicap. Even if it’s artfully crafted, erotic and romantic, and joins “Basic Instinct,” “Eyes Wide Shut,” “Body Double,” “Little Children,” “9 1/2 Weeks” in a pantheon of Hollywood kink, it’ll still lift a burden: E.L. James’ e-book source material. “Fifty Shades” that swept a republic and broke a lit-savvy. The book has an audience, offered over 100 million copies given a 2011 release. But it’s also a boundary of many a joke; When rumors leaked that Emma Watson was adult for a film adaptation’s lead role, Anastasia Steele, she tweeted “‘Who here indeed thinks we would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In genuine life.'” Salman Rushdie suspicion “Fifty Shades” done “‘Twilight’ demeanour like ‘War and Peace.'”
Half-baked element can be mined for conceptual film experiences, so no one should count Taylor-Johnson’s film out usually yet. The Berlinale isn’t. Announced by press release, a Berlin International Film Festival announced that “Fifty Shades” would applaud a general premiere during a fest’s 65th incarnation. Debuting on Feb. 11, 2015, dual days before a American release, a film will play one time and one time only.
Adapted from James’ novel by “Saving Mr. Banks” author Kelly Marcel, “Fifty Shades of Grey” stars Jamie Dornan (“Marie Antoinette,” Netflix’s “The Fall”) and Dakota Johnson (“The Social Network,” Fox’s “Ben and Kate”) as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, who take a workplace attribute to a subsequent turn with voluptuous gazing and BDSM toys. The film outlines Taylor-Johnso’s follow-up to her 2010, BAFA-nominated film “Nowhere Boy.” Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti alongside James.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” slips in to U.S. theaters on Feb. 13, 2015.
