Fans of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy heard some pretty awesome news the other day. Producers of the film adaptation have revealed plans to make two versions of the movie – an R-rated version for the masses and one rated NC-17 for the superfans. This announcement answered the one question that we’ve all been asking since the movie rights were first sold: how are they gonna show all of the good stuff?! And now it looks like they’ve found a way. As we impatiently await the February 13, 2014 release, here are a few scenes we hope make it to the NC-17 cut.
The Silver Balls
Okay, that scene where Christian is spanking the bejeezus out of Anastasia, shortly after Anastasia places the silver kegel balls in her let's just say nether regions? Yes. We’re going to need to see that in the NC-17 version, please and thank you.
The Red Room Of Pain, Riding Crop Edition
Right after Anastasia had her magical birth control appointment, she and Christian went back to his house, had a Caesar salad, and then he spanked her with a riding crop in the red room of pain. Oh, he also has sex with her while she's in these shackles that actually move across the room. That should make it into this scene as well
The First, Um, Moment Of Oral Contact
We can pretty much guarantee that Anastasia’s first trip downtown is not going to make it into the rated-R version of this movie. But c’mon. We have to see the scene in which Ana makes reference to her own “Christian Grey-flavored popsicle.” Yassss.
That Ice Cream Bit
We’ve all had fantasies of being covered in vanilla (or chocolate chip cookie dough, whichever) ice cream and getting, er ... sampled ... from head to toe. And even if you haven’t had that fantasy, there’s a good chance you will if you get to see Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson acting it out.
Yes, The Feminine Product Scene
It doesn’t get much more NC-17 than Christian pulling out Ana’s tampon, tossing it in the toilet (he’s so badass – he breaks all the rules), and ravaging her inner goddess while she holds on to the bathroom sink for dear life. Yup. We want to see that on screen. Judge us if you will.
Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden has been cast as Christian Grey's mother in the movie adaptation of erotic bestseller Fifty Shades Of Grey. News of the addition of the Pollock star comes two days after filming on the project began in Vancouver, Canada.
She will join Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, Rita Ora, Luke Grimes, Jennifer Ehle and Eloise Mumford among the cast of the much-anticipated movie.
British singer Rita Ora has landed a supporting role in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey. The star will play Mia, the adopted younger sister of Jamie Dornan's character Christian Grey, in the film, which started shooting in Vancouver on Sunday (01Dec13).
The Hot Right Now singer joins a cast that also includes Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Ehle, Eloise Mumford, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk and Max Martini.
The first shots of Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson shooting the much-anticipated movie adaptation of bestseller Fifty Shades Of Grey have appeared online a day after shooting began. The movie couple was photographed filming a coffee shop scene in Vancouver, Canada.
In the film, Dornan plays kinky billionaire Christian Grey and Johnson portrays sexually-adventurous student Anastasia Steele.
Prior to the shoot, Fifty Shades author E.L. James took to her Instagram page and posted a picture of the film's official clapperboard with the caption, "Action!"
Fifty Shades of Grey is set to hit cinemas in February, 2015.
Shonda Rhimes is a miracle worker. Not only is Scandal one of the most talked about shows on television, but her first hit Grey’s Anatomy is still on the air. It is approaching its 200th episode and could easily last over 10 seasons. Despite cast members like Isaiah Washington, Katherine Heigl, and T.R. Knight leaving under very public circumstances, the series has continued to grow, evolve, and maintain its audience.
Here are just a few reasons why we are still watching Grey’s Anatomy:
The show started as a sexy romp with Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) making poor drunken choices by starting an ill-advised relationship with her superior, Dr. Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey). Then everyone started sleeping together. The couple finally cemented their relationship only to be wrought with one cataclysmic event after another from airplane crashes to hostage situations. Now, the show exists as a medical drama focused on the high stakes world of surgery and its affect on a group of couples and families.
The show has created some great relationships. All of the characters have such great chemistry, no wonder Rhimes had them all sleep together. That being said she still plays with the subtleties of their romantic and friendship bonds. Meredith and Dr. Christina Yang (Sandra Oh) are finding trouble balancing their competition with their vastly different personal lives. Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.) has a uniquely paternal and adversarial relationship with many of the young doctors. Dr. Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) and Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) have one of television history’s most high-profile lesbian marriages but they are suddenly dealing with major upheavals.
Unlike some shows that ignore characters, Grey’s takes advantage of time to explore new levels of new additions. No one is just a glorified extra. Characters like Dr. April Kepner (Sarah Drew) and Dr. Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) started off as cannon fodder and one-dimensional characters but evolved into full-fledged members of the cast with elaborate back-stories and multidimensional personalities. The smart use of time to slowly allow these characters to percolate, develop, and reveal themselves is part of Rhimes’ genius.
Sometimes you see them coming a mile away and sometimes you spit out your wine, but Grey’s is not afraid to shock you out of your seat. Whether it’s an infidelity reveal or a character left near death no one is safe and nothing is what you expect. The balls-to-the-wall brazenness and shocking moments keep the show fresh. In the past few weeks alone, we’ve seen characters swap sexualities, reveal mood disorders, and start major fights.
Regardless of their notoriety, or lack thereof, the actors on Grey’s Anatomy really breathe life into their characters. Love them or hate them, you form a connection to the characters. Rooting for Meredith to have a happy life, or Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) to get closure so he won’t be such a jerk, is part of what keeps people coming back each week.
Actor Max Martini has landed the role of lead character Christian Grey's bodyguard, Jason Taylor, in the Fifty Shades Of Grey film, which will star Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. The movie is set to hit theatres in 2015.
The main cast for the much-anticipated movie adaptation of E.L. James' bestseller Fifty Shades Of Grey has been set following the hiring of Eloise Mumford as Kate Kavanagh. Mumford has signed on to play sexy student Anastasia Steele's best friend in the film, which will star Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.
Director Sam Taylor-Johnson has also cast Luke Grimes as Christian Grey's brother, Elliot; Victor Rasuk as Anastasia's close friend, Jose; and Jennifer Ehle as her mother, Carla.
Emily Owens, M.D./Facebook
If Grey’s Anatomy and New Girl were their best selves and had a child they would have Emily Owens, M.D. The series is chock full of awkwardness and a very realistic portrayal of life as a medical intern. Plus, Mamie Gummer shows she is ready to be part of the Meryl Streep acting dynasty by embodying a lovable, relatable character.
Emily Owens (Gummer) is an awkward, overachieving virgin. She’s hopelessly in love with her best friend, Will Collins (Justin Hartley). She is interning with her medical inspiration Dr. Gina Bandari (Necar Zadegan). The only hitch in her plans is that her worst enemy from high school, Cassandra Kopelson (Aja Naomi King) is also in her intern group. Suddenly, her strong grasp of medicine and stellar credentials are useless compared to her overbearing awkwardness and social anxiety.
Gummer brings a quirky and endearing sweetness. Plus, the show offers a grounded approach to medicine. Each episode, Emily uses her connection to patients and extensive medical knowledge to help them. Unlike a show like Grey’s, the show doesn’t rely on outlandish medical anomalies or unprofessional sexual relationships. Instead, the tension is derived from Emily’s love of Will and a budding attraction to equally dorky and unavailable Micah (Michael Rady). However, the show doesn’t just rely on girl crushes and teenage drama. It represents people of a certain age in a time where high school wounds can live on.
This series is cute, engaging, and will have you rooting for the “good guy.” Gummer is a star on the rise. Luckily, the 13 episodes of this prematurely cancelled series are available on Netflix.
Mark Wahlberg has revealed he fought to secure the film rights for erotic bestseller Fifty Shades Of Grey and almost fired his agent when the deal fell through. The Fighter star had hoped to produce the movie adaptation of E.L. James' popular novel but lost out to Michael De Luca.
Both men took part in a recent producers' roundtable chat for The Hollywood Reporter, which prompted Wahlberg to recount his high hopes for the film.
He said, "I almost fired my agent, Ari, over (it) - not because I wanted to play the part. We were aware of the book very early on, and we were close to securing the rights, and then we get into this bidding war. We were so close to having (it)..."
De Luca, who recently locked in the cast after hiring Jamie Dornan to replace Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey, joked Wahlberg would have made a good leading man in the film, stating, "He (Grey) looks a lot like Mark Wahlberg. I mean, the woman wrote a fantasy: a square-jawed, tall, broad-shouldered, genius, billionaire Adonis..."
The comparison prompted Wahlberg to respond, "Sounds like Brad Pitt to me."
Sam Taylor-Johnson will direct the film, which is scheduled to hit cinemas in 2015.
"I was sort of pretending I wasn't waiting, but the phone was in my hand, halfway to my ear. There was a slight fear. But beyond anything else, I was really f**king excited." Northern Irish hunk Jamie Dornan was on tenterhooks as he awaited news on whether he had landed the role of kinky billionaire Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey.
