Okay. I have a tough admission to make: I really like the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey. The secret is that I came to the table with A) low expectations and B) the only hope that it would be fun. And it is fun! Jamie Dornan is going to be interesting as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson actually seems like a decent, true-to-the-book Ana Steele. We already knew her hair was going to be a f—king mess (and it really is because BANGS and a bad dye job), but everything else looks good. That’s how I imagined Christian’s apartment. That’s how I pictured Ana Steele. The music helps too – it’s sexy. And you can hear Beyonce moaning, I guess. Here’s the trailer:
See? It’s not bad at all. It will be fun. I’m sure the 50 Shades-loonies will nit-pick and find a reason to be disappointed, but as far as pop culture general interest goes, this might be better than expected. Here’s another admission: I thought the elevator kiss was HOT. Jamie Dornan. Unf. But Christian walking around shirtless, in jeans? I chuckled a little bit. Seriously you guys, this is going to be such a fun movie to hate-watch.
