Beyoncé Releases “50 Shades of Grey” Trailer

(PCM) Beyoncé dropped a teaser trailer for 50 Shades of Grey on her Instagram on Saturday and the internet is freaking out.

The teaser trailer is more of an announcement for the official trailer which will be released this Thursday, 7/24.

In the meantime, you can watch the teaser trailer below, which appears to feature an a cappella version of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love.”

While it’s unclear why Beyoncé, undoubtedly one of the biggest pop/R&B artists of our time but not in the film, debuted the trailer, the move makes sense considering the BeyHive (Beyoncé’s loyal fans) consists primarily of women aged 18-55, which also happens to be the target demographic for 50 Shades of Grey.

Beyoncé is currently co-headlining with her husband and rap legend/mogul Jay-Z on their On the Run Tour, which is already seeing huge success; each show has been speculated to average $5.2 million in gross sales.

50 Shades of Grey, written by E.L. James in 2011, is the first book in the Fifty Shades trilogy, an erotic romance series that explores the relationship between a young college graduate and a young business mogul, and has already seen its more-than-fair share of success.

The series has been translated into over 52 languages and has sold over 100 million copies worldwide, making it the fastest-selling paperback of all time.

The film, which is speculated to be a box office hit, stars Jamie Dornan (Marie Anntoinette) as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson (21 Jump Street) as Anastasia Steele and is directed by Sam Teylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy).

Stay tuned for the official trailer coming out this Thursday and for 50 Shades of Grey, opening in theaters nationwide February 13, 2015.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Loses Charlie Hunnam And Suffers Script Snafus

Fifty-Shades1(PCM) Things are not looking all too promising for the upcoming film adaptation of “Fifty Shades Of Grey”. First, it was recently announced that actor Charlie Hunnam, who was slated to play lead character Christian Grey in the film, has dropped the project due to his overwhelming TV filming schedule. Secondly, it has now been reported that they have brought on a new writer to fix several problems with the script.

The rumors were swirling after the sudden departure of Charlie Hunnam from the project, with many claiming that he did not like all the sudden fame and media frenzy which the project/role was attracting…in fact, rumor also has it, that actress Dakota Johnson who is set to play Anastasia Steele, is having a few issues of her own dealing with her new found attention due to the film.

The producers of the film are saying that the changes will have no effect on the planned production schedule and they still plan to begin shooting next month. No word yet on a replacement for Charlie Hunnam…however if it means anything our votes are still with either Matt Bomer or Ian Somerhalder.

Casting For “50 Shades Of Grey” Film Adaptation Has Been Revealed!

hunnam-johnson(PCM) Finally putting all the rumors to rest, “50 Shades Of Grey” author E.L. James took to her twitter account to reveal which actor and actress will land the coveted roles of lead characters Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey for the film adaptation of her best-selling book series.

The film, which will be released by Focus Features on August 1, 2014 in North America, is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti alongside E L James, the author of the #1 bestselling book on which the film is based.  The screenplay is by Kelly Marcel.

The role of Anastasia will be played by actress Dakota Johnson and Christian will go to actor Charlie Hunnam. Personally, I am thrilled with this casting announcement, however many others are having mixed reaction.

Dakota Johnson is best known for her role on the short-lived sitcom “Ben & Kate” while Charlie Hunnam has had great success with his role as Jax Teller on the hit FX network series “Sons Of Anarchy”.

“Fifty Shades of Grey” follows the relationship of 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey and college student Anastasia Steele.  Subsequent novels in the series, “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed,” explore the couple’s deepening relationship.  For more information please see the official Fifty Shades of Grey Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/fiftyshadesofgreymovie.
