Fifty Shades of Grey": What do you think is better?? A Movie or a Television Series?
As I’m about a third of the way through the third book in E.L. James’ lusty romance series Fifty Shades of Grey, my interest in the potential movie adaptation is naturally piqued. We learned yesterday that Universal and Focus Features have acquired the rights to the story, which has grabbed the attention of many a female. But as I continue to wonder how this story could work as a successful film, and one women will flock to in droves as they have to the eBooks on which it’s based, a part of me thinks it might work better as a pay-cable TV series.
What apparently started out as Twilight fan fiction evolved into a story about a college grad who falls for a young, wealthy business tycoon with an appetite for the rougher type of sex. That’s actually putting it mildly. The first book in James’ series of novels focuses on Anastasia Grey’s growing interest for the attractive, mysterious Christian Grey, and the sexually charged relationship that ensues between the two. The story evolves from there, leading into the second and third novels, with the primary focus remaining on Christian and Ana’s relationship, with a side of Christian’s personal baggage. To say that the sex-scenes are described in detail is probably an understatement. The novels often delve into the specifics of the couple’s sexual exploits, which likely explains why the books have been branded by some as “mommy porn.” At it’s core though, Fifty Shades is a romance.
I can certainly see the appeal in the film, especially for those who want to see what a living, breathing Christian Grey looks like. But I have to wonder how the story will work for a feature film, and whether women will be interested in sitting in a movie theater watching what could be fairly graphic sex scenes play out on a giant screen. It’s one thing to see a bit of nudity and some under the sheets movement at the movies. It may be another to watch an S&M scene unfold while seated among dozens of strangers. There’s certainly the potential for awkwardness there, especially given the frequency of these scenes, at least, as they appear in the book. This is, assuming the film aims to recreate some, if not all of Christian and Ana’s bedroom moments............................
