'Fifty Shades of Grey' Arrives Today - Just in Time for Valentine's Day
Every now and then, momentous leaps in pop culture arrive. These "leaps" tap into the consciousness and curiosity on a very big part of the population. A few years ago, this was the novel “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Since the first episodes of E L James’ story were modestly released through an online-based publishing house in 2011, her “Fifty Shades” trilogy has grown into one of the biggest and fastest-selling book series ever, with more than 100 million copies in 52 languages consumed all over the world. Now the film adaptation comes to the big screen just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Stepping into the iconic roles of billionaire entrepreneur Christian Grey and curious college student Anastasia Steele are Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. In a story that is as much about the redemption of the unattainable Christian as it is the liberation of the inexperienced Ana, the protagonists have taken on lives of their own for readers who have pored over the vulnerabilities of the characters and intricacies of the novels. Through them, audiences have allowed themselves to explore their own inner fantasies and aspirations.
Opening across the Philippines on Feb. 11, “Fifty Shades of Grey” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures. The film has been classified Rated R-18 (Strictly for Adults) by the MTRCB.
