Curious…?

Curious…?

Sex. Power. Control. Romance. Submission. What turns you on…?

These are the themes explored in the highly anticipated psycho-sexual-thriller — ’50 Shades of Grey’ — starring Dakota Johnson & smouldering Brit (Irish — if it matters) actor, Jamie Dornan.

Based on the hit book trilogy by female Brit author E.L. James, ’50 Shades’ aims to please as it takes us on an emotional & sexual journey…lauded to awaken the deepest, darkest, desires we all hide.

As it slinks into theatres over Valentine’s Day weekend, WHY Universal decided to street this film on Friday the 13th leaves ME, for one, quite curious…

So…IF you haven’t yet seen the trailer…and IF, you, too, are curious…here it is. ‘Laters, Baby.’
