Now that opening weekend of Fifty Shades of Grey is behind us, all of the buzz and obsessing over the movie is sure to fade, right? HA — wrong. It seems like no matter where you go (on the Internet, anyway), there Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are, looking all, "Hey, some see us do sex things, you naughty person, you!" Not to mention, your friends are posting about it all over Facebook, and divulging their favorite scenes in group texts. It's just one of those movies — whether it be a phenomenon, zeitgeist, or just proof that everyone hates winter and needs SOMETHING to heat themselves up with... no matter what you want to call it, Fifty Shades of Grey is everywhere and is showing no sign of slowing down.
However, though Fifty Shades of Grey is an undeniable phenomenon, not everyone was able to see the movie this weekend — and that's totally understandable! (After all, the whole of the northern East Coast is basically a block of snow at this point — getting to the theater is a feat in some cases!) But, that doesn't mean you have to be left out of the Fifty Shades fun: Whatever your reasoning for missing the movie opening weekend, I'm not here to judge. I'm just here to make sure you don't miss out on the water cooler talk that's bound to be happening at your work this week while you find a more opportune time to head to the theater.
And so, here it is: Your complete guide to Fifty Shades of Grey, in GIFs.
So there's this reporter named Anastasia Steele
Oh, look how "quiet" and "innocent" she looks.
She's sent to do an interview with Young Hot Billionaire Christian Grey
He's attracted to her and he can't understand why
So he pursues her in rich, fancy-man ways
She's sexually inexperienced
And he introduces her to his Red Room of Pain
She's even asked to sign a contract to be his submissive. Sexy.
Because he has a dark and twisted past
And the only way he got through his past abuse, was becoming involved in BDSM.
Things get wild
But! She starts to develop "Feelings"
And he can't be without her
BUT, IS IT LOVE?
And that's where the movie ends. I know, I know — cliffhanger! But don't worry, two sequels are likely on the way.
