’50 Shades of…’ has been one of the most overused phrases in media for the two years since the first instalment was published in June 2011, such was the ruckus it created. The references and innuendos may have only just died down, but we’re due for a serious resurge in its popularity as the film adaptation of the best selling trilogy goes into pre-production.

A film has not been so highly anticipated since word of the first Harry Potter movie came about before its release in 2001. Needless to say, 50 Shades of Grey promises to be a movie of an entirely different ilk. We have been glued to the casting to and fros for a good few months, but it seems the final list is now adamantly up on the board with Jamie Dornan, who will play E. L. James’ brooding Christian Grey, and Dakota Johnson, who will take on the role of Anastasia Steele, heading it up.

With Charlie Hunnam now firmly out of the picture, the leading couple have been irrevocably confirmed in the form of their first cover shoot promoting the film for Entertainment Weekly, with Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan holding the renowned silver tie that graces the cover of the first book.

The film is due for release on Valentines Day 2015, later than the scheduled 1st August 2014, which seems to be due to Charlie Hunnam’s ddeparture from the cast. In any case, Valentines Day seems suitably monumental for the erotic film to make its debut. We wonder how many Valentines Day plans will be based around its release in 2015…
