I remember the first time I saw the teaser movie poster. I don't know why, but when I glanced at it gracing the side of a building in downtown New York City, I thought it was an advert for Mr. Porter, Net-A-Porter's ecommerce site for men, not a poster for 50 Shades of Grey. I mean, there's a super large photo of a guy in a suit. The background's a window. To me, I thought they were selling suits!
I dunno, maybe my POV is fashion-oriented, but I had to look at it twice before it registered in my head, that the poster wasn't selling menswear.
I'm one of the few women who haven't read the books. I was never intrigued by the plot. Friends of mine who read it, complained more about the editing and poor sentence structure than the plot, so I thought, "Eh."
We, and by using the word "we," I mean the general public, have heard bits and pieces about filming, but not much else. Now the trailer is launched. Check it out.
So, has the trailer lived up to your fantasies? Are you barfing internally by the inspid dialogue and goofy wardrobe? Does this look like a bad Lifetime movie, or will you spend your hard money on it?
Me, I'm passing on this extravaganza. However, I'd love to know if you're going to trek out to the movieplex to see it. So, let me know!
