We are officially in the same month as the release of Fifty Shades of Grey. Squeal if necessary. The film has been long-talked about, and the wait has been excruciating, but, as we near the imminent release of the film, fans of the movie are getting more and more peeks inside what we can expect from Mr. Grey and Miss Steele. On Monday morning, the Today Show released a new exclusive clip of Fifty Shades of Grey , more specifically the full hardware store scene. It's definitely one scene in the book that oozes sexual tension, so how does the movie seem to live up that?
In the scene, Ana Steele, played by Dakota Johnson, gets a surprise visitor at work — namely, Christian Grey, played by Jamie Dornan, who she recently interviewed for a school newspaper. He asks the awestruck Ana to help him restock on cable ties, tape, and rope, which, as she says, makes for the "complete serial killer..." to which Christian responds, "not today," And that is just so cheeky of him, because, in case you missed it, he is NOT a serial killer, nor is he just your average run-of-the-mill DIY'er. If only Ana knew what he was really going to use those for... (*cough* Her.)
The clip allows viewers to see the outside-the-bedroom chemistry that these two have, which is definitely evident. At first, I was nervous that Johnson would play Ana as too awkward, but it is nice to see that she's giving her a bit of personality to go up against Christian Grey and his palm-twitching self. Plus, if the chemistry between these two in a hardware store is so obvious — and that's like the least sexy place I can think of outside of a funeral parlor — I can't imagine what we're in store for when they take the sexual tension into the bedroom, know what I'm saying?
