Fifty Shades of Grey: Trailer Watch

This… doesn’t look terrible, does it? I mean, I’ve never read the books (I swear on my mother’s grave), but everyone I know that has – and loves them – still says they’re terrible. And yet this trailer seems to be omitting all the rubbish bits out. I mean, it’s only two and a half minutes long so it couldn’t have been difficult, but still, we’re talking about a film made from the most derided book of the century since The Divinci Code. It’s seems well acted and the direction looks as sharp as the suits Mr. Grey is wearing. The cinematography is crisp and clean, and the soundtrack is suitably seductive. We’ve got a long way to go but, and call me crazy, it doesn’t look half bad.
