Welp. For any of you wondering how Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson were going to fare in Fifty Shades of Grey in terms of chemistry, wonder no more. The results are in. And they're lukewarm. Shots of Johnson and Dornan playing Steele and Grey have surfaced, and on one hand, they're very exciting, because ermahgerd! It's the first picture of the two of them kissing! But on the other, the kiss is looking a little more college friends who haven't seen each other in a while than hot, steamy, and naughty. Womp womp.

Now, before you go throwing your copy of Fifty Shades into a metal trash can, dousing it with gasoline, and setting it a fire (and subsequently using said fire to roast marshmallows and make s'mores), let's all keep in mind that this is just one teeny shot in a movie that will have many shots of this couple kissing, and ... doing stuff. Let's not go passing hasty judgment here. (Though, come on, guys, this kiss is jank!) Hopefully, as filming goes on, Dornan and Johnson will get more comfortable with one another and, you know, act like they want to be making out. That would be nice. Because if we're not going to see crazy chemistry between the actors portraying Ana and Christian in the movie, what's the point of going to see the film at all?
Are you happy with the actors cast in the roles of Christian and Ana?
