Jamie Dornan's Future In The 'Fifty Shades' Franchise Is Uncertain

February 25th, 2015 3:19pm EST
Is Jamie Dornan Quitting 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'?
The future of the "Fifty Shades Of Grey" series is in flux as director Sam Taylor-Johnson pulled out of future sequels and lead actor Jamie Dornan reportedly said he's walking away from the franchise.

Reports surfaced earlier this week that Dornan was quitting the series because his wife was not happy with the BDSM-centered material. Quick to dismiss the rumors, his rep told E! News: "All press reports are pure conjecture as the studio has not committed to a sequel as yet."

His PR firm London's PublicEye firm then followed up with a statement that read: "Jamie is delighted that the film i...

How Does ’Fifty Shades of Grey’ Compare To Other Erotic Romances?

February 19th, 2015 6:04pm EST
How Does ’Fifty Shades of Grey’ Compare To Other Erotic Romances
The French got it right. In the U.S., “Fifty Shades of Grey” has an unsurprising R rating, while the Gallic country went with a 12, its second most lenient certification. Despite plenty of nudity from its two stars, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, “Fifty Shades” is relatively tame when it comes to R-rated sexuality. In fact, there is not one orgasm, real or fake, portrayed throughout the entire running time.

Whether or not “Fifty Shades of Grey” appeals to audience’s fantasies surely depends on personal preference. The book’s popularity can be explained to a great degree by the highly...

Dakota Johnson Stole 'Lots Of Underwear' & A Flogger From 'Fifty
Dakota Johnson didn't leave the set of "Fifty Shades of Grey" empty handed. She swiped a few items to keep as mementos.

"I stole lots of the underwear," Johnson confessed during a Twitter Q&A with Glamour UK. "They were comfortable."

What else did she swipe? The actress, who plays submissive college student Anastasia Steele, also took one of the sex toys. "I do have a flogger in my house,” she added.

But it's not getting much use. "It's in the garage with dust," she confessed.

Johnson and her co-star Jamie Dornan cover Glamour UK's March 2015 issue, and the actress says she doesn't wa...

The Sun (via Huffington Post UK) tells us why: apparently, Taylor-Johnson and "Fifty Shades" author E.L. James were at each other's throats throughout the film's entire production.

Madonna On 'Fifty Shades Of Grey': 'It's Not Very Sexy'

She told "It's pulp fiction. It's not very sexy. Maybe for someone who has never had sex before. I kept waiting for something exciting and crazy to happen in that red room thing, and I was lik...

Which Groups Are Objecting To 'Fifty Shades of Grey?'
Seeing "Fifty Shades of Grey" this weekend? You don't have to be bashful about it. We all have the right to watch kinky, yet still-tame-enough-to-keep-the-R-rating sexual escapades.

But not everyone thinks that way. In fact, several truckloads of people don't think that way, because there's a long list of theaters, organizations and even entire countries that don't like "Fifty Shades."

And in some cases, those groups have achieved their goal: banning "Fifty Shades" from theaters.

Let's take a look at who's fighting to keep Christian Grey's "Red Room of Pain" off our virgin screens.

Is 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Really A Date Movie?
The long-awaited adaptation of “Fifty Shades of Grey” arrives in theatres just in time for Valentine’s Day this weekend.

Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t just a book or a motion picture – it’s a movement! No the presence of Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t changing something of macro importance, but it certainly expounds upon sex in ways many have never experienced - understatement. That said, the relationship between Ana and Christian is not the focus here – it is the accompanying original motion picture soundtrack. Such a bold film requires a soundtrack to match, and overall, the ‘nifty’ Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack does the job.
