HOLLYWOOD – The trailer for the new 50 Shades of Grey film hit the internet this week, along with a rumor that the ending of the film will be dramatically different from the finale of the E.L. James authored masterpiece.
Director Sam Taylor-Johnson explained her motives and the change:
Everyone has read the book, and everyone going to the movie has read the book. And so we wanted to provide cinema goers with a unique experience and not one tied slavishly (if you’ll excuse the pun) to the novel. The book stands as a masterpiece anyway and there was no point competing with that.
In what way is the ending different?
Obviously I can’t reveal that without revealing a spoiler, so suffice it to say that I have included a more realistic take on power relations between men and women and the end will be a stomach churning gore fest which will have the audience vomiting in the aisles and slipping on it as they rush to get out the theaters.
The film stars Dakota Johnson as literature student Anastasia Steele who enters into a sadomasochistic relationship with businessman Christian Grey, played by Jamie Dornan. As the relationship becomes increasingly intense, they lose all inhibitions and indulge in necrophilia, bestiality and coprophagia.
50 Shades of Grey will be released on Valentine’s Day, 2015.
