CinemaCon Guys R Back: Their Comments on FSOG AFTER LAS VEGAS
I absolutely loved the two guys at CinemaCon who did the first interviews on youtube right after viewing the FSOG teaser. It was easy to see that they had no idea of the books and that there was such a huge fan base that would eventually find them on youtube. Their website zboneman.com is actually a very entertaining site about movies and their opinions. They have posted a new article about their experience at CinemaCon and of course mention their adventures with Fifty Shades of Grey. I bet they still haven’t read it. Maybe I should send them the books, highlighted of course.

Universal has what might be one of the most highly anticipated films of 2015 in the form of “50 Shades of Grey”. In fact, we talk about the film in our video blog for about 30 seconds and that was enough to take that particular blog to over 15,000 views in just three short days. More on that in a minute.
“50 SHADES OF GREY”
Based on the best selling novel of the same name, this movie is so hotly anticipated that it brought over 15,000 viewers to our video blog in a mere 3 days. So popular, that we decided to shoot a separate video blog about it. As far as I know, the footage shown at CinemaCon was the first footage shown anywhere. “50 Shades of Grey” tells the story of a successful business man who develops a fixation on a pure, sweet natured woman looking for love. Together, they take part in a journey that could best be described as sexual in nature. There’s more to it, but that’s the gist of it. The footage reel was surprisingly tame. It also looks very slick. I commented in the blog that it looks a bit like “Twilight” with S&M. That comment was met with great hostility from fans. Keep in mind, I’m not attacking the source material. I’ve never even read it. I was simply referring to the vibe I got from the footage. For a little more info, be sure to check out our blog(s). “50 Shades of Grey” opens in Feb., 2015. I’m of the personal opinion that they should have gone the whole way with this one. If they had, it would probably have the potential to be the first NC-17 rated blockbuster! As it stands, “50 Shades” will be rated R and I’m sure that’s perfectly fine with the source material’s legion of hard core fans.
