Fifty Shades of Grey will hit the theater screens beginning February 13, 2015, in time for Valentine's Day. The movie, which already wrapped up production early this year, was directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson based on a screenplay written by Kelly Marcel with Patrick Marber and Mark Bomback. The movie's cast is headed by Dakota Johnson as "Anastasia Steele" and Jamie Dornan as "Christian Grey" and also includes Eloise Mumford, Luke Grimes. Rita Ora, Victor Rasuk, Max Martini, Dylan Neal, Callum Keith Rennie, Jennifer Elle, Marci Gray Harden, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Andrew Airlie, Anthony Konechny, and Emily Fonda.

Fifty Shades of Grey is adapted for film from the top best-selling erotic novel of the same name written by E.L. James which has sold over 100 million copies worldwide and has been translated in 51 languages. Fifty Shades of Grey, the book, is first in a trilogy and is followed by Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. There will be two versions of the movie adaptation of the book - one, a "Rated-R," for the mainstream audience, and another, an "NC-17," for the die-hard fans of the explicit erotic novel. In previous recorded talks with reporters, producer Dana Brunetti said, "What we're kind of hearing from the fans is they want it dirty...they want it as close as possible (to the book)...I always thought it would be really cool if we released the 'R' version, and then we had an 'NC-17' version that we released a few weeks later. Everybody could go and enjoy the 'R' version, and then if they really wanted to see it again and get a little bit more gritty with it then we have that 'NC-17' version out there as well. That is my idea, but the fans and the studio will benefit from the double dip. We do not want this film to be seen as mommy porn - we want to keep it elevated, but also give the fans what they want."

Incidentally, Dornan who plays the titlular character just recently told GQ-UK: "If people are into that [S&M] they're into that. By the way, if people make such a hoo-hah about the violence against women aspect of it, it's far more common for men to be the submissive. And it's consensual! There's weirder shit than that. I think plane spotting is far weirder than S&M. That, I really don't get. I can understand why people are into S&M, but standing outside Heathrow Terminal 5 waiting for Ryanair to come in?"
