Fifty Shades of Grey was so hyped last summer, that Universal originally tried to fast-track the movie adaptation. We almost expected it to be out by now!
The newly-announced release date means that Fifty Shades will come out opposite of the Marvel property Guardians of the Galaxy. That's some very tough competition, though the films reach such different demos that Universal is probably not too worried.
The biggest question remaining is still: Who will play Christian and Anastasia?
