New Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer – Henry Cavill As Christian Grey (Video)

Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer – Henry Cavill As Christian Grey (Video)

Fifty Shades of Grey has been the greatest invention since condoms and Christmas, especially for females who feel they need to get their kink on like Mills and Boon or Harlequin Romance. The sexually laced trilogy has been one of the biggest hits since Harry Potter and Twilight, so successful, in fact, that a film is being made about the trilogy – think Twilight meets sexuality.

An unofficial trailer has just hit the internet according to Hope Carson at Gather. It is not a parody, but rather very well-done fan video that “provides a good preview of the as yet uncast, unfilmed, and obviously unseen movie of E.L. James inexplicably – er – wildly popular mommie porn novel.”

The video watches like a perfume ad, with the melting face of Christian Grey walking in the wispy curtains, billowed and swollen in the wind. The angle jumps to an overhead shot of a city at night (because sex only happens at night?) and flicks over to a husky discordant whisper. Christian pulls off the bra of a faceless woman and brushes his fingertips against her stomach (that sounds ticklish). Then, in editing done by a schizophrenic, there’s an image of Christian’s hot car and a girl sitting at a graduation ceremony, smiling happily (she knows what’s coming). Then, back to the black and white stripping scenes which is seen through what seems to be a keyhole, giving the whole fan video a voyeuristic feel. Christian strips down to his underwear as the camera pans slightly up to his stomach, giving women a glimpse of their Holy Grail. The film shoots over back to black and white scenes of a man walking, his tie undone and his face chiseled enough to bake eggs on. A sex scene ensues and without being too literal, the fan made video merely shows the outlines of the feminine physique, in a way which would make Hitchcock (don’t even think it!) cry. Planes, sunlight, beaches, pilots and porn music ensue, with Christian finally ending up in a compromising position next to the female in the film.

The film is reminiscent of neo-Italian cinema, interspersed with a Bond-esque quality. The fan video is reminiscent of a zephyr impregnating the curtains, with the room smelling of cigarette smoke and the cacophonous click-click-clicking of a whirring fan. It is a heady, weighted reproduction of the exotic universe women have found themselves wallowing in for the past few months. The most startling aspect of this fan video is not the risqué sexual allusions, but rather the noir element of a protagonist in an antagonistic world. We are astonished at the fact that this short and uneasy little film has no official relation to the film. There are no opening credits, nor a booming voice announcing the sexual nuances at certain intervals. There is, however, a short credit run at the end of the film, listing Henry Cavill as Christian Grey.

What do we make of this reader? We don’t know, but it sure is one of the most well-made fan videos we have seen in quite some time. Let us know in the comments below who you think will be perfect as Christian Grey. Our bet is on a Ryan Gosling or Alexander Skarsgard lookalike.

  5. Shari Conyer says:

    Henry Cavill is the only one that comes close that I have seen thus far , Matt, Ian, Ryan , Alexander , DON’T even come close

  6. Nttown says:

    No. I still see Matt bomer or Ian Somerholder

  7. Alex says:

    Please no, not Henry Cavill. He is too vanilla looking. Let him be Superman and leave Christian Grey to an actor more suited to this particular role.

  8. Cindy says:

    Ian certainly ,
    Henry certainly. Ian’s eyes, so full of …well you know….!

  9. natzann says:

    Oh yes! This is definitely my Mr. Grey. For those who think he is too vanilla, they better see him in action in HBO series The Tudors, where he does a few sexy scenes!

    • Laura Anne says:

      I second that! :) sexy sexy omg! People watch the tudors! His face is perfect and omg his body… I’ve seen the other men and they don’t compare! Watch Tudors! No vanilla there what so ever!!!

  10. […] The once again brilliantly made trailer carries an epic sensuality to it, with fast faded editing and short scrolling slogans. The familiar slow motion sequences are included and the night time shots of Seattle are overlaid by single phrases such as “Love Happens”. Matt Bomer is being watched through a window, once again creating that magnificent voyeuristic feel which was so evident in the first trailer. The editing becomes slightly clichéd, especially when the nonsensical scenes begin to flash intermittently — giving this trailer a more surrealistic and melancholic feel than the previous one. […]

  11. melissa says:

    I totally am going to have to go with ryan gosling i think he is the perfect mr grey

  12. Theresa says:

    Henry Cavill is Christian Grey

  13. Laura Anne says:

    Henry Cavill is my one and only choice for real life Christian Grey! He is exactly what I imagined when I read the series! He’s beyond perfect for this role… I just can’t say enough about him… The man is a God and I didn’t even want to see this movie until I saw his face. I know if he’s Christian, the movie will be a knock out! The others are sexy in their own right, but there is only one Christian Grey…. And that is Henry Cavill!!! <3

  14. Crystal says:

    I think Henry Cavill would make a great Christian…that trailer was great!!

  15. Sue bdoo says:

    Henry Cavill IS HAWTTTTTTT!!!!!!

  16. carrie kidder says:

    Although it is just my personal opinion, Henry Cavill is the only man I can see playing the dark yet intriguing Christian Grey, however, I don’t that he will be cast for the part. Call it a bad feeling.

  17. Andi says:

    I will not go and see this unless it is Henry Cavill and who’s the girl she looks great

  18. Terri @mybookboyfriend says:

    Most of this film was taken from the Dunhill perfume ads with henry Cavill in them. I posted those trailers on my blog back in January of this year.

  19. Terri @mybookboyfriend says:

    I cast Matt Bomer as Christian in a book review on my blog post that got thousands of hits back in January. I was the first to cast him.

  20. Henry Cavill is a perfect pick. Watch him in “The Tudors”,he’s deliciously handsome,sexy and a great actor:)

  21. Allyssa says:

    Henry is the one! Perfect package. Ryan doesn’t appeal to all women, lets face it. Zac is too young & Ian is just all kinds of wrong.

  22. Teresa says:

    Ian all the way.

  23. MissT says:

    Where are the clips taken from?

  24. marley says:
