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 of Grey 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 theaters, 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.
The important thing about a romance is the chemistry that the lead actors share. And when you consider a racy and novel like the Fifty Shades of Grey, the chemistry between the lead actors Jamie Dornan and Anastasia Steele became all the more palpable when the pictures of the shoot started emerging.
It is understood that a certain amount of chemistry is needed when you are playing the role of sadomasochistic lovers, and that is plentiful in the recent pictures which have emerged from the shoot in Vancouver, Canada. The first picture which emerged from the scene was the first day of the shoot, shot in a cafe between Dornan and Steele.
Shot with 44 cups of lattes in between, the pair was seen immersed in conversation while looking fetching. Dressed in a sharp suit, the Irish actor, Jamie Dornan looked attractive and every bit of a debonair businessman, while Dakota Johnson, looked her demure best in a green army jacket and a pair of well fitted denims. The readers and the fans of Fifty Shades movie will also recall the shooting of the ‘contract scene’ where Dakota was seen wearing a red dress and a camel colour belted trench coat and the dapper businessman was seen wearing another one of his sharp suits customised for him. The contract scene is an important part of the film as it is the scene where Christian Grey gives Anastasia Steele a copy of the contract which lays down the rules and limitations of their BDSM bordering relationship. While leaving and heading towards her car, she plants a delicate kiss on the cheeks of her handsome and attractive co-star.
The scene which is drawing rave reviews and more views from the readers and the fans is the scene where Christian Grey meets Anastasia Steele in a cafe and afterwards while they are taking a stroll on the streets, she is suddenly and miraculously saved by her handsome co-star Jamie Dornan from the mouth of a speeding cyclist. The incident leaves her frazzled as she is pulled by her co-star close to his chest and they almost kiss. This also leaves her confused about the status of their relationship. Later on as Christian inquires about her well being and in gently touches her to push a strand of hair back behind her back, the chemistry becomes all the more palpable.
In between the shots, the pair was also seen ballroom dancing. Jamie Dornan was seen leading the dance and Dakota was seen following his cues. With impeccable chemistry, these two were seen dancing on the sets in a bid to keep themselves warm, it is heard. And in a gray suit with a high collared shirt, Jamie Dornan was looking every bit a ballroom dance partner to the demure and petite moves of his 24 year old co-star. Too bad that they practiced these moves not on camera but off camera and we wish there could be some way to capture and use them in the movie somehow. Sam Taylor-Johnson, are you listening?
Yes, you heard it right; the now famous lead pair of Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson was spotted on the streets of Vancouver. This dance was not a romantic celebration but they were seen in between shot to combat the cold. Those who still do not we are talking about, Dakota Johnson is Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson’s daughter who is playing the role of Anastasia Steele in the movie fifty Shades adaptation of the Erica James novel Fifty Shades of Grey. Jamie Dornan is an ex Calvin Klein underwear model who is playing the role of Christian Grey in the same venture.
Jamie Dornan is married to Amelia Warner and a few days back, they welcomed their little daughter into the world and their family. Jamie Dornan has a lot to look forward to in the coming months. With a new movie and the titular character in that movie and a new role as a dad, Jamie Dornan will have his hands full till February 2015 when the Fifty Shades movie releases around Valentine’s weekend. The scene in question, in which the two actors were seen dancing on the streets in Vancouver, is an important scene because of many reasons.
It is the crucial scene where Grey saves Ana from a near death bike collision and afterwards both realise that something is happening, or has the prospect of happening between the two of them. In the scene, we find Grey and Ana leaving a cafe and walking down a street immersed and lost in conversation when suddenly, Grey, like a knight in shining armour, pulls Ana out of harm’s way and saves her from being hit by a bike. Grey looks deeply into her eyes only to realise that he might be falling for his submissive and things might not stay, as official as they are now, between them for long.
Immediately afterwards, grey inquires whether she is doing well or not and pushes a few strands of her brunette hair back behind her ears to confirm it. The actors were said to be dancing in between shots, to themselves warm and also because they have been playful on the sets. The Irish actor looked sharp in his dapper steel gray suit and high collared shirt, while Dakota looked every bit the girl next door in skin tight denims, scarves, a white T-shirt and green army jacket. With most of the cast members now on board, the movie can now boast of even pop sensations and Oscar winners.
They are also scheduled to join Dakota and Jamie in Vancouver, along with the rest of the cast. Whether this dancing behind the scenes, really has an effect on the equation Grey and Ana share onscreen, or not, will be seen on the 13th of February 2015 when this so called love story finally sees the day of light.
The only hot thing between Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson, on the first day of the shoot, was the cup of tea they were enjoying. Fans should not be disappointed because it is only the initial part of the filming and as the shooting progresses, the hotness quotient between the two lead actors and the characters will also increase! Shot in a quaint looking cafe outside the offices of the Grey Enterprise, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, playing Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey respectively, were seen in rapt attention following the cues of the director, Sam Taylor-Johnson. The scene shot in Vancouver, was an important one as it was the ‘contract scene’.
For the ones who have not read the novel, yet, the ‘contract scene’ is where the business minded Christian Grey draws up a non-disclosure agreement and a contract that binds their purely escapades which were to begin soon.
For Christian Grey, his relationship with this fresh out of college Anastasia Steele is nothing short of a business deal, replete with agreements and contracts, but for the virginal beauty that is Anastasia Steele, she slowly falls for this stone-hearted and stoic businessman. In the first part of the trilogy, 50 Shades of Grey Movie, Erica James leaves the story on the note of Anastasia Steele realising that her feelings for Christian will go unrequited and this realisation makes her leave.
The first day of the shoot of Fifty Shades Movie also saw these two pivotal characters dressed impeccably. Christian looking dapper in a custom made sharp suit and the lady, looking ravishing, yet elegant in a red/ dark plum dress with a camel-coloured belted trench coat. But in between the scenes, the lead pair could be spotted in quilted jackets and coats and UGG boots, such was the weather. If the onlookers were waiting for a hot kiss, they were disappointed because the scene ended with Anastasia walking with the contract towards her car and before she got into the car, planted a docile peck on the cheeks of the ruggedly handsome Christian. The scene does not end here but. The look of confusion is etched all across the face of Christian while he looks her arm, but does not look at her.
The first pictures of the shoot were out amidst a lot of anticipation, since the movie adaptation was announced. Many fans have been waiting with bated breath to catch this scene since the project was rumored to be jinxed and as it shuddered under the pressure of constant cast changes, many thought that this venture would remain only in the memories of the readers or in the pages written by Erica James. Luckily however, the production has started and it is only a wait till Valentine’s Day 2015 when the readers and the fans of this venture would see the characters and the story line come alive on the big screen. With so many actors already collaborating on the project, there is no reason why this should not be a highly anticipated movie!
