In fact, on July 24, the long-awaited and highly anticipated trailer for the Fifty Shades of Grey film was revealed. The movie is the big screen adaptation of the first book in author E L James’ steamy romance trilogy of the same name.
The trailer features the titular characters of Christian Grey, played by Irish actor/model Jamie Dornan from ABC’s Once Upon a Time and Anastasia Steele, portrayed by the lovely Need for Speed actress Dakota Johnson. Audiences got to hear a glimpse of Dornan’s American accent reciting familiar dialogue from the novel. The video continues to reveal an array of captivating footage primarily focusing on the film’s two leads and their individual story lines.
The trailer gradually builds in anticipation for the kinky secrets that fans know Christian Grey hides behind closed doors and audiences get a peek at Dornan and Johnson’s more sensual, heated performances.
The creator of this worldwide phenomenon was but a simple British housewife who began writing fan-fiction for Stephenie Meyers’ Twilight in her spare time. E L James states that she is not a trained writer and the role models for her two leading characters, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, originated from Twilight’s Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. Her hobby of creating fan-fiction turned into a full-on project, which lead to the creation of the Fifty Shades of Grey saga. James reportedly would type a majority of the original manuscript on her BlackBerry whilst riding the subway to her day job. [ http://guardianlv.com ]
