FOUR DAYS TO GO!!!
The countdown is on for the trailer to be shown this Thursday, July 24th, as officially announced by E L James on twitter.
Remember that time Natalie Morales of The Today Show teased us with a picture of herself standing with FSoG director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, on the set of FSoG? Yes, well the running theory is that we will finally see her interviews with the cast on The Today Show this week in conjunction with the release of the trailer, possibly with an introduction to the trailer pre-recorded by Jamie and Dakota.
With less than a week left until we can all finally see the first movie trailer, let’s take a minute to recap how exciting it has been to be a Fifty Shades of Grey fan lately!
Back in June…
In celebration of Christian Grey’s birthday on June 18th, Fifty Shades of Grey author, E L James, announced she would host a giveaway on her author site to win the Red Room of Pain Keychain she had previously shared a picture of on her Instagram account.
There was a bit of technical difficulty brought on by the sheer multitude of fans who clamored to enter the giveaway that delayed the contest.
Once back up and running, entries were taken and the winner was announced on EL James’s blog! Congratulations again to a lucky fan named Kimberle in the US! And the rest of us are left up to our own devices when it comes to the playroom, key fob that is! You can order our own via Amazon here!
In the meantime, to celebrate Christian Grey’s birthday, Universal treated fans by releasing the first official frontal still of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. Here he is, presumably tucked inside his favorite car, the Audi R8 Spyder.
The intensity of Mr. Grey achieved.

Finally a patriarch….
Mr. Carrick Grey, or as Marcia Grey Harden (@beloving2) likes to refer to him, the papa Grey to her mama Grey was finally announced on imdb.com. We look forward to seeing experienced character actor, Andrew Airlie, in the role as Christian’s father. A big welcome to him!
A love story unfolds before our very eyes…
The next great love story of our generation IS Ana and Christian but a close second just might be:
FSoG producer, Dana Brunetti and singer/actress, Kristin Chenoworth! They’re just too cute not to include at least once!!!
Just last night FsoG fans were amazed when a teaser of the trailer (!!!!) showed up from an unexpected source! On her I Instagram account, Beyonce posted a delicious amuse-bouche, just enough to whet our appetites!
We’re salivating and ready for more!
When the trailer was shown at CinemaCon, it was previously reported in this Huffington Post article (here) that Beyonce’s song “Haunted” played in the background. People Magazine reports that the teaser uses a slowed down version of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love” and questions if Beyonce will be on the soundtrack. Our answer is, “Why wouldn’t she be?” In the spirit of Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, we have no doubt that Beyonce could pull off a fantastic chart-topping hit song to accompany this movie!
If you go back and read the Huffington Post article, you’ll be able to match up some of the scenes from what was described by those who were at CinemaCon and what was in the teaser, including the door being opened. This gives us a lot of hope that on Thursday we will indeed get a glimpse of that famous elevator kiss!
We’ll be on twitter on Thursday looking to share your reactions to the trailer! See you then!
