A few updates to note while we wait for that teaser trailer to be released. We still do not know when it will be released, but in speculating there are some important events coming up that the teaser could coincide with such as Christian Grey’s birthday on June 18th, San Diego Comic Con July 24-27, or even sooner at the upcoming RT Booklovers Convention May 13-18.
This week, Ms. James posted on her website about her upcoming traveling, first to NYC (she’s there now!) and then to the RT Booklovers Convention in New Orleans, where she will get a chance to interact with fellow authors and fans! If the teaser were revealed there, what a treat it would be for the loyal fans who fell in love with the characters on the pages–both paper and virtual!
Feel free to tweet us @50ShadesMovieFS if you are there and get your books signed or meet up with Ms. James. Don’t underestimate the power of the FSoG fans on twitter–a group selfie with Ms. James might just knock Ellen’s Oscar selfie off the charts for Retweets!
We know New Orleans is where the main event is, but if while in NYC she has business to attend to. Maybe something in followup to this picture she posted recently referring to it only as “Work.” So many possibilities…
Well that kind of work has been paying off slowly but surely, and we can’t help but *smile* when different cast and crew members, who had various levels of involvement in the movie, share what a great experience filming the movie was!

Meanwhile, Victor Rasuk, who will portray Jose, spoke to ENews! while on the red carpet for the movie Godzilla, stating,
“I’ve been sworn to secrecy but I will say this: Dakota was amazing,” Rasuk told us exclusively Thursday at his Godzilla premiere in Hollywood.
“Jamie was amazing. It was one of those things where we came into it wanting to do it justice. And I think all the fans, the millions of fans, will also love what we did. I think we did it justice.”
Victor talks more about his experience with ENews! here.
And, it just so happens that Victor’s co-star in Godzilla was Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the husband of Fifty Shades of Grey director, Sam Taylor-Johnson. Both walked the red carpet for the movie and spoke briefly with Access Hollywood. During the interview, Sam made this interesting reveal!
“Have you found a way to get Aaron in the movie?” Access asked the director at the premiere.
“Actually, I have,” Sam said with a laugh after momentarily hesitating to answer the question.
Not a resounding yes to the question, so our first thought was that with a short amount of time spent on set, Aaron may be playing only a minor role. Maybe he’s the bartender, room service waiter, the delivery man who delivers the books to Anastasia’s apartment, or a business associate Mr. Grey exchanges a handshake with. These would all be simple enough ways of working him in.
Perhaps he was cast in a role during a day of filming when they wanted only a select few people on set to protect the secret of the big twist that we have been led to expect. (Can’t think of a reason he would be involved in RROP scenes unless he delivers and sets up new “equipment.” But then the article goes on to say that Aaron stepped up as wing man to the secrets.
“Hush, hush. Don’t give anything away yet,” Aaron chimed in.
And this makes us wonder if, due to his ability to protect the FSOG secrets, Aaron was given a larger role such as Ethan or Jack–characters we know well from the books but are still not listed/credited on http://www.imdb.com.
You can read the the full article with Access Hollywood here.
Either way, we are hopeful as ever to hear so much positive about the movie. With every bit more we hear, it’s hard to deny a sense that echoes what Victor Rasuk expressed, that this cast and crew came together with a passion to give the fans a special movie that will both entertain us and pay homage to the love story of Christian and Ana. As always, we are left 50 Shades of Excited in anticipation!
And to add another small piece of positive to our FSoG fandom, we hope those that celebrated yesterday enjoyed a wonderful Mother’s Day! Thank you to those who sent us messages, as we were off having family time!
We thought it was only fitting to express gratitude and motherly sentiment with a phrase we borrowed from actress, Marcia Gay Harden!
Happy Mother’s Day!
