Let the countdown begin! The movie version of ‘Fifty Shades’ is still more than a year away, but we have something new to drool over and whet our appetites: the movie’s first poster. Aren’t you even more excited now?
The first poster for the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey was released on Jan. 24, and it’s as sexy, suggestive, and mysterious as we’d hoped.
‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’: First Poster Revealed
The poster shows Christian, played by Jamie Dornan, in his penthouse overlooking the city of Seattle. Everything looks just about right — the perfectly tailored suit, the expensive shoes, and the mysterious yet intriguing man in the middle wearing it all so well.
The tagline is perfect — “Mr. Grey Will See You Now” — capturing the excitement and anticipation of Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and making us feel the same exact thing.
Really, the only thing we don’t like about the poster is how it says “Valentine’s Day 2015,” which means we still have over a year until Fifty Shades is released. But assuming the next posters — and movie trailers — get more revealing, we should have plenty to hold us over.
‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Will Be Steamy
But you know fans are chomping at the bit, especially because it sounds like the makers of Fifty Shades won’t be holding back at all — Jamie is even planning to go full frontal!
“Fifty Shades of Grey producers know they have to make the screen version just as steamy as the novel to make it a success,” a source told Star magazine. “They can’t turn it into a Disney movie.” So rejoice, all you book-lovers.
And tell us, what do you think of the movie’s first poster? Is it a good sign of things to come?
