50 Shades of Grey About Money, Power as Much as Sex in New Trailer 10

50 Shades of Grey About Money, Power as Much as Sex in New Trailer

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson star in a new trailer for “Fifty Shades of Grey”, which is more about money and power, and less about sex once all the erotic scenes are stripped away. In fact, the plot is as old as entertainment itself. In the 1930s, the same themes were fodder for radio soap operas. Poor working girl meets rich, powerful man of her dreams; the theme purportedly appeals to a woman’s innate, and probably prehistoric, desire to find a mate who is a good provider. But that’s old thinking....

Tim Burton tips his hand in a new trailer for his upcoming movie about an infamous ’50s era scandal involving the creation of so-called “big eyes” paintings–ubiquitous kitsch art that turned into a mult-million dollar enterprise.
