So we may not know who is actually going to play Christian Grey or Anastasia Steele just yet, but day by day, more and more details are leaking about the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. It's no shocker that, of course, there's going to be plenty of steamy lovemaking scenes in the film adaptation of the popular book. But the big question: Just how much are they gonna be able to show in theaters?
BIG NEWS! Kelly Marcel, the screenwriter that's working on the film adaptation, finally revealed the movie's rating to The Sunday Times. Prepare yourselves, because by the sound of things, we're about to get a WHOLE lot of Christian for our overpriced movie ticket.
Ready for it? NC-17! In other words, the highest most extreme cautionary rating a movie can have before it's pretty much classified as porn and outlawed from movie theaters. Ow OW!!
You know what this means, don't you? There's going to be sex, as expected, and not just that subpar kind of vampire sex we saw in Breaking Dawn: Part 2. I'm expecting to see a lot of the things E. L. James writes about in the book. The blindfolds, the nipple clamps, those silver balls he's always talking about that drive Anastasia wild.
With that said, though, is this going to be pushing the envelope too much? I can't help but wonder: is watching something potentially this graphic around other people going to make audiences across the country feel uncomfortable? I'm hoping that, despite the intense rating, the movie is done with class. I think we can all agree that Anastasia deserves at least that.
What do you think we'll see in the NC-17 rated Fifty Shades of Grey movie?
