Fifty Shades of Grey: It’s Getting Hot in Here

fifty shades of greyDespite the fact that it will not air until the Valentine’s Day next year, the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is already making the headlines almost every day. And even though the wait for the feature adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic romance novel is a bit longer than originally expected, people are anxious to finally see Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey on big screens. Some of their steamy moments were recently caught on tape and several pictures immediately flooded the internet. Well, judging from the pictures, it is just like Nelly would say: “it’ s getting hot in here.”

On Tuesday, Oct. 14, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson went back to the woods of Vancouver to film some reshoots of their upcoming steamy flick. Things between the two of them got pretty hot, as one of the pictures shows Dornan taking control as Christian by grabbing Dakota’s face to kiss her there in the woods. However, the couple seems pretty relaxed and according to several reports, the actors had a great time on the reshoot. A source said that Jamie and Dakota were having a lot of fun together and they were laughing a lot. The Fifty Shades of Grey‘s couple, who is the hottest on-screen couple right now, was not focusing on their lines and they kept messing up, but Sam Taylor Johnson, who is the director of the movie, was not upset at all.

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie and the novel already caused quite a lot of controversy, but this is not getting the cast or the crew down. However, several readers actually got pretty upset, when some reports claimed that the book’s readers are more likely to have an abusive relationship. Furthermore, the movie has already been deemed as inappropriate by the advocacy organization Morality in Media, which declared that the movie legitimatizes and glamorizes violence against women. Well, according to the reports, nobody on the set of the movie really cares about that and it seemed like they were all having a lot of fun while filming the reshoots.

Even though it is not confirmed yet, the Fifty Shade of Grey movie is expected to receive an R-rating. Since the nature of the story is sexually charged and it has an emphasis on Christian Grey’s preference for sadomasochism, the fans of the book are most likely very curious to see how some of the hottest scenes are adapted for the movie. Dana Brunetti, who is the producer of the movie, said that they are aiming for an R rating, however, she added that it would be great to do an NC-17 version of the movie and release it after the R-rated version arrives in theaters.

Well, in terms of appeasing both, the ones who want to see the movie with the entire sexual content and those who would rather not to watch a soft-core pornography at a movie theater, that would be a big plus for the movie. In fact, a double release would be ideal for Fifty Shades of Grey, since the NC-17 rated films are usually limited in terms of how much money they can bring into the box office and which theaters will show them.

As many people already began counting down the days until the premiere of Fifty Shades of Grey, it is safe to say that Valentines Day 2015 is one of the most anticipated Valentines day’s ever, even for those who are otherwise not very fond of it.

Fifty Shades of Grey is coming to theaters on Feb. 13, 2015.
