Amazing Fan Video: Christian Grey and Ana Steele ‘Contract Scene’

OMG. We were so excited to find this fan-made video of Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson) in the “contract scene” outside Grey House.

This is a great compilation of video and photos. Some were taken from a distance but it so great to see the characters in action!

With “The Scientist” by Coldplay in the background, and the text from the Fifty Shades of Grey book, it really makes this little scene come alive for those of us wanting a little sneak peak of the movie.

The text used is the scene when Ana and Christian depart after their big talk about the “contract.” She has the contract in her hands and she is unsure if she will ever see her again.

In the book they of course are at the Heathman Hotel but for the movie this scene seems to have played out at Grey House.

You will laugh when you see the last line from Christian in the video: “Now I have to f–king wait.”

Hey, don’t we all… for this movie to be ready for us. -)

Jamie Dornan Says His Role in ‘The Fall’ Is ‘Brutal Headspace’

Jamie Dornan is apparently back in Belfast, Ireland, filming season two of The Fall for BBC with Gillian Anderson.

In The Fall, Jamie plays a serial killer, Paul Spector, and Gillian is the law enforcement officer assigned to hunt down the killer.

It is a pretty grisly series, but hailed as being the best BBC has seen for awhile.

The series has won awards for writing and it was announce that Jamie Dornan has been nominated for this year’s breakthrough award at the 40th annual Broadcasting Press Guild Awards.

Contact Music reported that Jamie Dornan, “Repeatedly apologised to his female co-stars in grisly Tv drama The Fall because he felt guilty for subjecting them to his character’s creepy behaviour.”

He told U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, “I was doing the creepiest things imaginable so I kept apologising to them. It wasn’t easy for them and I was very aware of how hard it was so I kept saying sorry during horrible scenes.”

He also admits the role is tough on his mental health. “It’s a brutal head space to maintain,” he said. “It’s not healthy, so I made a point of getting out of character – I definitely didn’t want to take him home!”

Jamie Dornan Interview on the Set of ‘Flying Home’

This video is of Jamie Dornan, director Dominique Deruddere, and the cast of his forthcoming movie, Flying Home.

Jamie explains the unusual plot involving his power broker character trying to get a prized pigeon for a rich shiek.

Of course, he falls in love along the way.

Okay, most of this is not in the English language, but it contains a great interview with Jamie Dornan, speaking in his natural voice.

The director, and other actors, are speaking in Dutch because it is a Belgium-made movie.

FLYING HOME is a romantic film by Dominique Deruddere… about a boy, a girl, and a very valuable pigeon. It is due to come out April 3, 2014.

This is his first movie, starring as the romantic leading man, and it was obviously shot before Fifty Shades of Grey.

Producers of Flying Home are probably happy they selected Jamie Dornan for the lead and now will likely has a hit on their hands because at this point, we know fans will want to see Jamie in anything he does.

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Sells 100 Million Copies-Fans Share Why They Love It

Fifty trilogy

By A. Charlotte Rose

Fifty Shades of Grey, by E.L. James, has sold more than 100 million books, according to the New York Times today. It has also spent 100 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list.

Vintage Press, which aquired the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy in March 2012, and published each book within weeks of each other, is celebrating 100 million mark as they come upon the end of two years of Fifty Shades mania. This, just days after the long-awaited Fifty Shades of Grey movie wrapped the film shoot.

Anne Messitte, publisher of Vintage/Anchor Books in the U.S., forecasts only more “Fifty,” “We see new readers coming to the books every day and the sales, two years after our initial publication, remain strong and steady.”

Fifty Shades of Grey began as fan fiction called Master of the Universe. It was first released as an e-book and, then, a print on demand paperback in May 2011 by The Writers’ Coffee Shop. Then Vintage Press acquired the series, which was already a viral winner with a huge word-of-mouth following.

Why is this book so (freakin’) popular? We asked some of the fans at Fifty Shades of Grey News.

Darci Leavitt said: “An up to date modern Cinderella story!! With some spice! Love it!!! ALL of it……”

Angela Fulton said: “It lets women know that some of the things we all do is not so horrible! That we can be ourselves, with added excitement!”

Kristie Colgin Cooper said: “Because it’s hot to death!!”

Terri Ellison said: “I think every woman wants the deep love he had for her.”

Annette Firman said
: “I loved the true love story and how we found the real Christian and how he found the feeling of real love he didn’t know. Everything else was a bonus.”

Karryn ILaah Toniu said: “For me it was the fantasy of having a man like christian grey. He may be fiction but gahhdaymm he could be REAL!! Love a man hu can be RUFF&REAL at the sam time.. need some of that in REAL LIFE!!..”

Diane Marquez said: “It’s freaking awesome !!!!”

Michelle Daino said: “Sex, control, money and security….What is not to like about something that can bring sssooo much pleasure for such an affordable price. It has allowed many a person a reprieve from their own reality that it almost feels like you are part of this book on some level. Enjoyed the reading because it was done in a classy, sassy kind of way that seemed to capture my imagination.”

Ervine Hoover said: “These books made me feel as if I’d found exactly what I’ve been looking for…..or missing! !! It was as if I was close to them as far as feeling there emotions…..literally! !! Extremely well written and so believable! !! Just awesome! !!!”

Natalie Morgan Holt said: “It’s like an x-rated version of Twilight… Seriously, what’s not to love.”

Why do you think Fifty Shades has sold so many copies and has remained do popular?

Fifty Shades of Grey Film: Fans Petition For ‘Closer Release Date’

1524613_440970282697687_969257395_n

By A. Charlotte Rose

Now that the movie production has wrapped, fans are getting antsy to see the final version of Fifty Shades of Grey, the movie. And many wonder why, if the film has wrapped, they can’t have a movie in 2014.

Well, there is editing to do. And possible re-shoots. And a gazillion things to be done, including promotions and premiers and making sure the stars are free to promote the film when it finally lands in our theaters.

Still, fans are now petitioning for a closer release date via Change.org.

The petition reads:

It seems like the most anticipated movies are the ones that are always pushed back despite the huge fan base that they get. However, if “Fifty Shades of Grey” were to be released in August 2014, there shouldn’t be any reason that it would cause harm to the film or to any of the other films that is due to be released at the same time. If not August, then sometime in September or October of 2014 could work just as well since it would not interfere with what is known as “Award Season”.

This movie will probably be good enough to receive great recognition due to the popularity of the book while still not being too overwhelming towards the other films that are to be released at the same time regardless as to when that is if the release date does get changed. We ask that “Fifty Shades of Grey” will be pushed forward to a more closer release date than February 14, 2015.

Thank you for your time and patience.

Oh, and by the way, the originator of the petition is signed, um, “Anastasia Grey.”

At this writing, 110 fans have signed.
