The first official trailer for the highly anticipated, possibly gross Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation has dropped, and we have to say… It actually looks kinda good. Dakota Johnson looks appropriately frumpy as Anastasia Steele, Jamie Dornan, well. He is handsome, wears a suit and has dark eyes. So we’re good there. I think we’re all glad to see that they went with lesser-know actors, because I don’t know if I could ever look at a Hemsworth the same way again after hearing him utter “Laters, baby.”
The movie itself also looks surprisingly moody and sexy. That is, until we remember what the plot is actually about – there are some downright cringe worthy moments in those books, and unless there’s some movie magic going on here, it’s just gonna be ridiculous to watch it pan out. By the way the trailer looks – the snippets show some faithfully depicted scenes from the book – our hopes aren’t too high for anything groundbreaking. Just softcore porn and schmaltzy acting.
What do you think?
