The 50 Shades of Grey movie doesn’t have a screenplay, director, or cast, but it already has plenty of trailers, thanks to fervent Fifty fans and YouTube.
One of the fan-made trailers features two of the big favorites for the movie, Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel. Not long ago there were rumors that Matt had been cast as Christian Grey in the movie and that Emma Watson was in talks to play Anastasia Steele, but these reports turned out to be falseÂ—the producers haven’t approached anyone because there’s no screenplay for actors and actresses to read.
However, fans are keeping themselves entertained by making lists of their dream casts, photoshopping their perfect Christian and creating parodies, internet memes, and trailers. The trailer featuring Matt and Alexis seems to be one of the most popularÂ—Alex White’s creation is quickly approaching 200,000 views on YouTube.
By carefully splicing together scenes from Alexis and Matt’s work (mostly Gilmore Girls and White Collar) with shots of Seattle, White creates a pretty believable trailer that focuses on Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele’s first meeting. This involves Ana filling in for her friend Kate Kavanagh to interview Christian. Ana’s awkwardness is definitely captured in the trailer with Alexis Bledel looking a bit lost in Christian’s big office building.
There’s a voiceover that talks about the infamous contract that Ana has to sign, a few flashes of bondage scenes, and lots of shots of Matt Bomer looking hot. It looks like there’s even a scene from Secretary thrown in (that film took on the whole S&M thing long before it became such a sensation).
It might not be perfect, but it could convince some 50 Shades of Grey fans that Alexis and Matt are perfect for the movieÂ—Alexis has the innocence, and Matt has those steely eyes.
Now if only creative 50 Shades fans would get to work putting together a few of the other popular picks for Christian Grey and Anastasia SteeleÂ—some ideas would be Jessie Pavelka and Emilia Clarke; Alexander Skarsgard and Rooney Mara; and Ian Somerhalder and Alexandra Daddario.
So who would you like to see together in a trailer?
