On the official Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Facebook page, a first still of the highly anticipated movie has been posted. It shows Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) just before their first meeting.
This is the first actual movie footage we have seen since filming started in early December 2013. It’s still quite mysterious as we only see the back of Christian, but the picture does provide a good and exciting first glimpse of Dakota Johnson as Anastasia.
It’s hard to say based on just one still, but so far Johnson is looking convincing as Anastisia. A good pick by director Sam Taylor-Johnson, who was a big fan of signing Johnson for the part. “I knew the moment we met Dakota Johnson that we found our Anastasia. She will provide us the perfect balance of vulnerability, sass, beauty and courage”, she was quoted to say recently.
Release date: Valentine’s Day 2015
The image was released on Valentine’s Day. An important date for the movie, since it will be released on Valentine’s Day 2015.
So it’s still quite a long wait for the fans, but at least it’s a comforting thought that it’s now less than a year before we can finally see Anastasia and Christian come to life on the big screen.
Of course, there is still the book to enjoy until that big day. Another interesting option for fans or first time readers is the Fifty Shades of Grey audiobook. Online store Audiobooks.com has a very interesting promotion: new members get one audiobook completely for free.
