'50 Shades of Grey' Movie: 8 Scenes We Can't Wait to See

Flicks 142

woman biting lipRumors are swirling like wild around who will adapt, direct, and star (Bret Easton Ellis, David Cronenberg, Rob Pattinson Scarlett Johansson?) in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but not too many people have been floating ideas just yet about what the film will actually look like and how it will compare to the books. I have read that it must focus more on the love story than all the sex, and the sex is going to have to be presented in a way that is vague enough for the flick to pickup an R-rating. (Because oh no, NC-17 would be a death sentence to it at the box office!)

But while we Fifty fans can do really nothing other than fantasize that the final cut will meet our expectations, here are eight steamy scenes we can all likely agree the eventual writer and director of the film must include ...

  1. Christian's visit to Clayton's Hardware Store. If done right, seeing the sexy Dom getting then-clueless Ana to show him where the ropes and masking tape are located could actually offer the flick a little comic relief!
  2. Christian saves Ana from Jose. Reading the scene, you can just see him emerging from the shadows, stopping Jose from puttin' the moves on Ana. "I think the lady said no." Aww, the control freak knight in shining armor!
  3. Their first makeout in the elevator. The film just wouldn't be complete without Christian saying "F*** the paperwork!" and pinning Ana to the wall of the elevator.
  4. The first trip in Charlie Tango. Destined to be a short, but potentially really romantic scene.
  5. When Christian first uses that silver-gray woventie. Yeah, it's a little creepy how he just shows up after Ana emails him that it was "nice knowing him," but he definitely makes the point that she'll want to keep right on knowing him ...
  6. Ana's first spanking. Yeah, this is going to have to be in there. It's a love story, but also a BDSM fantasy, no?
  7. When emotionally vulnerable side of Christian comes out. The film has to touch on Christian's backstory, particularly when he confesses to Ana that his mom was a "crack whore."
  8. Ana's confession ... and exit. When she admits she's fallen in love with Christian and realizes (or think she realizes) that they can't be together, movie-goers will be left on the edge of their seats.

What other scenes (from the first book) do you think must make it into the film?

Chatting at "above normal volume" in public places isn't cute or adorable or vivacious, it's OBNOXIOUS and RUDE! Why are all the women reading (and endlessly talking and talking and talking about)this book so atrociously annoying? Ick.

I THINK THE SCENE WERE HE FALLS TO HIS KNEES AND BECOMES ANA's SUBMISSIVE. AND WHEN SHE SAYS YES SHE WILL MARRY HIM. ALSO WHEN SHE FINDS OUT SHE'S PREGNANT AND CHRISTIAN GETS DRUNK.

im definetly afraid of them messing this up because i have yet to watch a movie that captivates me as much as a book. If directors or who ever actually READ the books they would know the key points to put it. Im glad someone was smart enough to write these down :)

I'm still kind of disgusted these are becoming a movie.

Alexander Skarsgaard needs to be the lead, I will not see it if Robert Pattison or whatever is christian

I want to see the negotiation and informed consent scene. But someone will have to write it in because it sure wasn't in the books.

I ordered them from the local library because I thought the book was about midlife crisis.  Note:  the title  "Fifty Shades of Grey".  Turns out I got the final book, and I went 50 pages then stopped.  Nothing but a typical bodice ripper that Harlequin Romances comes out with.  Boring and really stupid and a real waste of time.  I never could figure out why that title.  Very misleading.  The other two books are in for me at the library, and I'm passing on both.
