'50 Shades of Grey' Movie Rating Means We’ll Get All the Sex We’ve Been Hoping For

movie theaterSo 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?

    I'm excited, I think if everyone can just be adults & watch then we can learn something or see something new, interesting & erotic. If this type of movie is disturbing to you, please do not choose to watch it & complain about it to the rest of us.

    I agree with Taylen's comment, and I can't wait to see this movie, I own the trilogy myself and I do hope that Ana gets the class and innocence she deserves in the movie, and let's not take grandma to watch this movie...

    I think that Ian should be Christian, he posses the ability to be both sexy hot and angry hot ... Ana should be Jenna Dewan-Tatum. She is gorgeous with out being a direct commercialized gorgeous. Either that or Nathalie Kelley
