Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed

Release Date: February 9, 2018

So it is all over — the Fifty Shades trilogy that tried to be more than just kinky unspoken sex and about two seemingly wildly incompatible characters getting together and sustaining a relationship. But the surprising thing about it is that despite how terrible the first feature, Fifty Shades Of Grey, was, the following installments were actually pretty tolerable to the point of enjoyment. Yes, the entire trilogy as a whole is pretty bad, and the lack of chemistry between leads Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan is clear, but by the time we get from Fifty Shades Darker to Fifty Shades Freed, we see that the franchise has embraced its absurdity.

The result is that we can enjoy the film for what it is. Regardless of how one may feel about the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed is just one of those films that is so bad it’s actually pretty good. And owning up to the fact that it can be mildly enjoyable is hard to admit. My full review below.

Fifty Shades Freed

I’m not entirely sure if the Fifty Shades franchise still has that tight grip it once had when it was at its pop culture peak, but at least its film franchise intends to see the trilogy all the way to the end. Despite being knocked for its poor writing and lack of chemistry between the two leads, the series’ success – if you can call it that – has led up to the final installment of the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed.

And now with just a couple of months left until the film’s traditional Valentine’s Day release, Universal is releasing yet another trailer to remind you that this sex-filled soap opera drama is coming. Check out the latest trailer below.

The end is near for the Fifty Shades film franchise, and after taking two films to figure things out, Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) are ready to take their relationship to the next level.

By walking down the aisle. All the dark and kinky S&M bondage stuff may not be behind them just yet, but at least they are now committed. However, it appears that Grey still has a few skeletons in his closet. And there is also someone who is stalking Anastasia. Find out more about this in the first teaser for Fifty Shades Freed here below.

Fifty Shades Darker Trailer

Universal Pictures has released the second official trailer to Fifty Shades Darker starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The film is a sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, which ended awkwardly, I might add. However, devoted fans knew that the story wasn’t over, with this being a trilogy.

In the new trailer for the sequel, we see the two rekindle that relationship that involves kinky PDA, ghosts from Christian’s past, and other people who will complicate their relationship. Because what’s a good soapy drama without that. Check out the full trailer below.

Fifty Shades of Grey

Production problems on Fifty Shades of Grey between director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author E.L. James are well-known. While the director was excited to announce that there was going to be sequel with the returning lead stars, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, many speculated that the ongoing disagreements would have an effect on her return.

Now we are getting confirmation that the first sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, will need a new director as Taylor-Johnson has revealed that she will not be returning for to the franchise.

‘Fifty Shades’ Author E.L. James Wants More Control Over Film Sequels

50 Shades Of Grey

Of course a novel series like Fifty Shades of Grey with a huge fanbase would get a big-screen adaptation, and despite the production problems – casting, chemistry between leads Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, the disagreements between director Sam Taylor-Johnson and series author E.L. James – the film was the top earner at the box office, and was one of the highest grossing R-rated movies in the month of February, even though it was widely panned by critics for those same chemistry issues and a very weak script.

It’s highly unlikely that Taylor-Johnson would want to endure another six months of harping from James over the script and vision, which is probably why she hasn’t stepped up to say she is on board for 50 Shades Darker. Now, with word that James wants to write the script for the Fifty Shades sequel, the director is already out the door. Hit the jump for more.

The Graham Norton Show Jamie Dornan Julie Walters, Stephen Mangan Christian Grey cake

Fifty Shades Of Grey actor Jamie Dornan is currently out making the talk show rounds to promote his new film, which opened in theaters this weekend. One of those promotional stops was to The Graham Norton Show last night, where he came face to face with a life-sized cake of his Christian Grey character.

While standing with Norton, British actor Stephen Mangan, and Harry Potter actress Julie Walters, Dornan took a taste from the Christian Grey cake, after Norton quite awkwardly cut slices from the gut area. One of the cake’s creators was in the audience and she revealed a few details about the edible version of the character with “singular tastes” (BDSM, people!).

Watch the videos here below of Dornan on The Graham Norton Show having a taste of the aforementioned cake as well as doing the interview portion of the episode where the host asked the audience if they’ve read Fifty Shades Of Grey.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Star Dakota Johnson with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Make Anything Sexy

On the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, Jimmy Fallon welcomed the other half of everyone’s soon-to-be favorite romance/bondage movie. Dakota Johnson, one of the stars of Fifty Shades of Grey, joined the host for a segment called “Anything Can Be Sexy,” where they each read an inherently unsexy sentence from a stack of six cards in their most sexiest, come-hitherest voice.

Watch the video of this here below.

Fallon’s lines included a sexy take on, “Mesa called Jar Jar Binks. Mesa your humble servant.” Hot! Fallon declared he was “steaming up the lens a little bit” with that one. His other two lines were very sultry asking where to buy worms and Gold Bond powder. Johnson highlighted why she was the perfect choice for the vulnerable yet sexy Anastasia Steele, her character from Fifty Shades. She winked and giggled a bit after her each of her three lines and ended with a hair toss flourish. Her lines included subjects like old sweatpants, a fanny pack, and Red Lobster.

Jamie Dornan & Jimmy Fallon Read From ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ With Accents (Video)

Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan and Jimmy Fallon

On the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night, Jimmy Fallon had a super fun game planned for his guest, as per usual. Jamie Dornan, star of the soon-to-be biggest grossing movie of all time that doesn’t have explosions/superheroes/animation, Fifty Shades of Grey, joined the host for “Fifty Accents of Grey.” Taking turns pressing the “ultra high-tech accent generator,” both host and guest read one line each from the book, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Watch the video of this here below.

Fallon was adorable as usual, unable to maintain a straight face (one of his most endearing qualities), and pretty good with a Russian accent, sounding like Peter Stormare in Armageddon. Dornan got to do various sexually charged lines in Scottish and French as well as Count Cork Irish (different than his own real Irish accent — he was born in Belfast), while Fallon scored with Russian, Cowboy (“that’s not an accent”), and Italian (“I sound like Mario”).
