Fifty Shades Freed behind-the-scenes video: Watch where (and how) how the magic happens

Fifty Shades Freed 1

Caligula The Roman Empire epic, based on a screenplay by Gore Vidal and financed by Penthouse magazine, becomes the first and last attempt to make a big-budget, mainstream pornographic film with a classy cast (Malcolm McDowell, Peter O'Toole, Helen Mirren). I give him six months of marriage before he clears out the S&M gear from the Red Room of Pain and puts in a train set. Director Drew Goddard is heading the movie with other leads consisting of Chris Hemsworth, Russell Crowe and Jeff Bridges.

Fifty Shades Darker was nominated worst movies by Razzies 2017 Awards. The film's previous two films also opened the second week of February, and just like them, the third installment probably should have been left on paper.

For some people, that fantasy is why these movies are worth seeing. Money has always been the cushion for Fifty Shades' spicier provocations, and it's the aspect of the series that has aged the worst in the three years. In the first film, Christian Grey (Dornan) turned Anastasia Steele's (Johnson) virginal body into his perverted playground.

I do consider myself as a individual that [sought refuge by going] from one place to the other, so yes, I do feel like that has a lot to do with my background. I would hesitate to say that it's good, but it's certainly the closest that the romance between whiny, controlling billionaire dreamboat Christian Grey and bland everywoman Anastasia Steele has come to being remotely engaging.

This industry that I am in, music, is definitely hard for women in the sense of we have to really prove ourselves a lot more, and sometimes we don't get the acknowledgement.

So with the lack of sexual tension further pouring water on an already decidedly un-erotic potboiler franchise, Foley turns to one of his strengths: a depiction of fragile masculinity that has been a common theme throughout many of his films.

Katie, Stassi, and their friend Jennifer Hoffner rubbed elbows with Fifty Shades Freed stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson at a special screening of the film in Los Angeles.

However, Dornan himself denied these reports. Nowhere is that more clear than with Fifty Shades Freed, a movie that's largely indiscernible from its predecessor except for a handful of minor plot points.

The wildly popular movies, especially the sequels, play like an anodyne version of the preposterous erotic thrillers of the '80s and '90s. Fans can expect to see the actress in "The Peanut Butter Falcon", which follows a man with Down syndrome who runs away to become a wrestler, and the ballerina horror/mystery "Suspiria" opposite Tilda Swinton. The first film holds the Czech record for the most viewers on its opening weekend, 256,470. Great care is taken to show how uninterested Ana is in being a doormat, but Christian doesn't seem to really change his behavior. That means after "Fifty Shades Freed", this will be a billion dollar enterprise. And, to tell you the truth, the storytelling elements in that sequel are light years superior to this drivel. The books were popular because they were entertaining to read, and Fifty Shades Freed can be entertaining to watch. But, for Rita-stans, this movie will never be forgotten. The story then moves in a loop where Christian and Ana will bicker, they'll have sex, Jack will do something threatening, rinse, repeat.

Fifty Shades of Grey was a literary phenomenon when it was released in 2011. Running time: 95 minutes Rated R for strong sexual content, nudity, and language. The sex, while fairly explicit, never amounts to anything as head-turning as the notorious "Last Tango in Paris" or even "Showgirls".
