Fifty Shades of Grey fans certainly seem to have a lot of time on their hands. And if the way they fill that spare time is any indication, they're also extremely creative and knowledgeable about their obsession--er--favorite "mommie porn' novels. That's right, novels. A fact that sometimes seems to get lost in all the 50 Shades of Grey hoopla is that E. L. James' publishing phenomenon is, much like the Twilight Saga that inadvertently spawned it, a series of novels featuring the same characters and advancing the same story. So, it was only a matter of time before some industrious fan made a movie trailer that encompasses the entire 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, telling Christian and Anastasia's entire story, and including every painful--er--passionate detail.
The latest, and longest (so far) trailer stars Matt Bomer and Aleis Bledel who seem to have become the fan video makers' favorite Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The video which is described by its creator as a "mini-move" is, unlike many other fans videos, shot in color, and it has the professional look of a feature film, or at least a made for T.V. movie. It begins with a "spoiler alert" advising fans to perhaps wait until after they've read all 3 books to watch it. You can make your own decisions about that one. After that, the video thrusts its viewers headlong into Christian and Anastasia's erotically charged world of "passion" and "possession"--two words that float from time to time on the screen. Unfortunately, so does the annoying USA logo in many of Matt Bomer's scenes. Oh well, sometimes you have to take the annoying with the good.
