50 SHADES OF GREY Pushed to Valentine's Day 2015 Release

If you were looking forward to the big-screen adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel "50 Shades of Grey", you're going to have to wait a bit longer. The release date has now been shifted from August 1, 2014 to February 13, 2014. Taking ironic advantage of the holiday of love, so it seems.

After the casting shuffle of the main character Christian Grey, actor Jamie Doran has since replaced Charlie Hunnam after his sudden departure. Sam Taylor-Johnson is still attached to helm and Dakota Johnson is still locked in to star opposite Doran as the shy but curious Anastasia Steele.

While many believed this delay was due to the production needing more time, the team behind the film assure us it was something they were planning to do before even the actor swap. Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley stated, "Together with the international marketing and distribution team, we've been looking really closely at the August date and becoming more and more convinced that the right thing to do for the movie was to push it," Langley said. "So even if Charlie had stayed, we still would have been making the date change."

What do you make of this release change? Let us know in the comments section below!

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
