A number of anticipated movies have gotten previewed at the CinemaCon, and one of the treats was "Fifty Shades of Grey". A five-minute video of the adaptation of E.L. James' erotically-charged novel was shown to the lucky crowd at the Las Vegas event that kicked off Monday, March 24.
Footage of Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele that was shown in Sin City was quite tame, according to people who saw it. However, "there was plenty of innuendo and suggestion of Christian Grey's habits behind locked doors."
CinemaBlend revealed there was a brief glimpse of "Ana tied to a bed with a blindfold on." Meanwhile, The Associated Press noted that at one point "the camera pans over Christian's collection of S&M toys as Beyonce Knowles' sleek and sexy 'Haunted' plays in the background."
While the steamy scenes were kept for sneak peek at later date, the footage was filled "with some of the iconic moments fans of the book will remember." According to Entertainment Weekly, this included Grey and Steele's first meeting at his office and his surprise appearance at the hardware store. Plus audiences were given a sense of the Grey psyche with Dornan uttering, "Hearts and flowers: That's not who I am."
In The AP's description, the video featured Grey taking his love interest for a joyride in his helicopter, a visit to his swanky Seattle apartment, and a fancy make-over. She properly transformed from plain Jane to sexy sophisticate. "Why are you trying to change me?" she asked. "I'm not," he replied. "It's you who is changing me."
