“Mr. Grey will see you now.”
That famous quote from the first time Christian Grey meets Anastasia Steele at his office is the tagline on the first official movie poster for the eagerly awaited film adaptation of E. L. James’ erotic bestseller 50 Shades of Grey.
The poster was released by Universal Pictures earlier today and features a black-and-white look at Christian Grey’s backside (played by actor Jamie Dornan’s backside) as the titular Mr. Grey looks out the window at the panoramic skyline of Seattle. At the bottom of the poster is just lists the release date of “VALENTINE’S DAY 2015” with the url of the movie’s website www.fiftyshadesmovie.com.
And speaking of the website, it currently has a background photo with the same photo of Christian’s backside above, only with an expanded view of Seattle thanks to a trio of windows:
And here’s the “story” of the film from the website:
