The first photos of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele are here from the Fifty Shades of Grey movie! Now, these are not stills, but it sure appears that both Dornan and Johnson are firmly in character for a series of photos done for EW.
Just yesterday we were told that the Fifty Shades of Grey release date was pushed back to Valentine’s Day, 2014, and for fans of the series, the news was a blessing and a curse. Why do they have to wait so long… but what a perfect release date for the complex love story!
The photo spread appeared in the mag’s latest issue and gives us at least a feel for what Dornan and Johnson will be bringing to the roles whose casting became an almost Olympic sport here in Hollywood.
The film that was originally slated to arrive August 1, 2014 had the release date pushed back due to the fact that Charlie Hunnam quit and the principals needed more time to get the chemistry right for a movie that will live and die on that very fact. Maybe it’s us, but judging by these early photos… it seems that Dornan and Johnson are on the right track.
