Who hasn’t heard of the saying that good things come to those who wait? And when this concerns the ‘Fifty Shades….’ the fans and the followers of the movie adaptation, who have waited for so many months for the shooting of the movie to end, so that they can be rewarded with a trailer of the film, can now breathe a sigh of relief since a new ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ trailer is out! But again, it can be understood that a new trailer means that though the production of the movie might have come to an end, the post production work on the movie has just started.
Using the body of work of Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the movie version of the novel written by Erica James, some creative fans have made a fan made trailer to quench the thirst of the other fans. The preview contains the shots showing Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) running in the rain.
But the producers should be aware that since the fan made previews look like this, the real trailer needs to be really slick, considering the level has been set up there! The new fan made trailer has craftily featured some of the dialogues from the book and also the nitty gritties of the story that have been highlighted here. The fan, who has made the trailer, has been careful to select the right scenes that make the montage come alive. When asked if he has read the trilogy, he answered saying that since he is an ambitious filmmaker, he chose to channelize his creativity by making a fan made trailer for this film, because he found the premise of the novels and the characters interesting.
When he chose to make a fan made trailer of a film like the ’50 Shades of Grey’, it was given to understand that there would be people, who are fans and followers just like him, who would like his endeavour and others would criticise him and his efforts. He has said that given the time and the resources he had, he is satisfied and happy with the final outcome. Making a fan made film/trailer is a creative process and the fan in question, has achieved quite the feat with the limited resources he had.
The aim of this fan, to please other likeminded fans, has been rewarded and without any big name from a big studio or a big actor the fan has been successful in creating the right kind of buzz for the forthcoming Fifty Shades movie, which is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and will see the light of day on the 13th of February 2015. Let us hope that the ripples created by this fan made film does helps the fans come closer to the actual product.
By now we all know that both, in the novel and in the film adaptation, Christian Grey is a character, who seduces the college beauty, Anastasia Steele into making her his submissive BDSM partner. But where does it all start? To give you a clue in that department, the producers of the “Fifty Shades…” film have recently released the first official still from the venture. We have to give it to the brains behind this move, that the timing is impeccable. With the countdown also beginning, to announce the release of the movie, in a year’s time, to producer Dana Brunetti announcing that the outdoor shoot of the film is also drawing to a close and is anticipated to end sooner than it was expected, the first still satisfies the eager fans just enough.
The people who have read the novel know that the not-so-classical romance between Ana and Christian begins from a chance encounter when Ana has to go to Grey’s office and take his interview, in place of her best friend and roommate, Kate, who is indisposed. As the coy girl makes it to his office with unsteady steps, the still shows how she sets her eyes on Grey from that moment on. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that probably both felt the strong attraction for each other and if you explore the still further, you can analyse that it is in some ways quite similar to the first official poster of the film which was released a few months back.
In the official poster of the movie, a sharp suited and dapper looking Christian Grey can be seen standing with his back to us and looking out into the Seattle skyline, from a floor to ceiling glass window. In the still, which has been released recently, the mysterious and dark entrepreneur can be seen facing an apprehensive Ana, with his back to us. The couple goes on to explore each other, by becoming dominant and submissive partners of each other in a BDSM relationship.
The fact that we have already seen Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan as Ana and Grey, quite comfortable with each other, gets a new meaning with this poster. The shy and docile Ana is a perfect foil to the in-control and seductive Christian Grey, as it can be seen in this still. With a year left for the fans and the followers, who have been waiting with bated breath to catch the movie in theatres, they are hopeful that the producers will try to appease them by releasing a sneak trailer at least. But with no official confirmation coming from the producers, the fans just have to keep their fingers crossed.
Though what Grey and Ana have cannot be called a romance, in the true sense of the word, but the release of the film around Valentine’s Day 2015 (13th February, actually), makes sense, for they eventually do fall in love.
