Film to be released in February 2015
The first poster for Universal Pictures and Focus Features’ adaptation of E. L. James’ erotic novel “Fifty Shades of Grey” has been released, revealing … well, not much, beyond a view of Christian Grey’s backside. And a clothed view at that.
The poster depicts business magnate Christian Grey with his back to the viewer, facing a window, with the message “Mr. Grey Will See You Now.”
The film will be released in Feb. 13, 2015. The film was originally slated for release on Aug. 1, 2014, but the date was moved back after “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam, who was initially cast to play Grey, dropped out of the film, citing scheduling conflicts. Irish actor Jamie Dornan will now portray Grey in the film.
The book and film depict the S&M-tinged relationship between Grey and Anastasia Steele, who’ll be portrayed by Dakota Johnson in the film.
