Extended 'Fifty Shades of Grey' TV Spot Has Been Waiting for You

"You have to admit, he's ridiculously hot." If you watched the Golden Globes last night, then you probably already caught the extended TV spot for the erotic romance Fifty Shades of Grey, which is just over a month away from arriving for a steamy Valentine's Day weekend. The movie is probably going to be huge, and while it doesn't really look like my cup of tea, I'm certainly interested to see what all the fuss is about (though fans of the book likely will say that it doesn't compare, if only because of the sexuality limitations). Anyway, the spot explicitly calls Jamie Dornan hot, but that's for everyone else to decide. Watch below!
Here's the extended TV spot for Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey from YouTube:
You can still watch the previous theatrical trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey right here.
Fifty Shades of Grey is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) and written by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks), based on E.L. James' very popular, best-selling novel. The story follows an impending college graduate named Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), who strikes up an S&M romance with successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), the physical and emotional dominant to her submissive personality. The cast also features Luke Grimes as Grey's brother, Victor Rasuk as Steele's close friend, and Jennifer Ehle as her mother. Focus Features and Universal will release the film on February 13th, 2015.

Why don't they just make a porno? I understand the premise of this but I'm not sure I understand why they don't get some porn stars that can act better than terrible (ain't nobody elevating this material based off this preview). I understand that the primary qualification of porn actresses is a lifetime of sadness but they are paid to shoot these type of scenes. Why not leverage that? You wouldn't hire a plumber to fix your car so why are they filming a PG13 porno with stage actors?

Why not go a step further Mike and have Nothing but real Cowboys in Tarantino's Hateful Eight Only real trained Astronauts in the new Start Wars films Real MI6 operatives in the new James Bond movie Etc, etc

Your response is invalid. I suggested porn stars because they are actors that specialize in filming sex scenes which seem to be the focal point of this movie. They are a type of actor... Astronauts, cowboys, and secret agents have their own specialized career skill set which don't call for an acting specialization so they likely would make terrible movie stars. Maybe the secret agent because of deep cover and what have you but it could seriously jeopardize their cover to be seen in a movie. Also, I hate to break this to you but Star Wars is a special effects driven movie where they aren't actually in space. That's called a green screen. In addition, Star Wars is in a galaxy far away where space travel is possible by the layman so they likely don't have astronauts because there would be no point in that career path.

I would imagine they want the non-sex scenes to be done by real actors. That's just a guess, though... 😐

Mmm...This looks like a terrible film. They are not even really trying to hide the fact they are making this for quick bucks.
