Is It Hot or Is It Just 50?

The trailer – some would call it long-awaited, some would say what the heck is that? – for 50 Shades of Grey has been released. And it’s hard to tell if it’s gangbusters or a fizzled firecracker.
Lots of teasing – presenting Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in short clips – lots of tight shots of non-specific skin and fabric and some guy’s abs and – wait, is that a riding crop?
The movie won’t be released until Valentine’s Day, and there will probably be more trailers dropped along the way – you can count on that! – but if the trailer is an indication of what the film is going to look like, this could be one of those instances where the reader’s imagination is far better than the director’s vision.
