Universal clearly is taking no prisoners with the release of its new billboard poster because the ad seriously hits it out of the park.
Universal released the first poster for their [soon-to-be hit] film Fifty Shades of Grey. If you have read the book, you know this is the moment before Anastasia Steele (played by Dakota Johnson) enters Christian Grey's world where her life will never be the same.
The billboard poster, which Universal has unleashed, sent FSOG fans hyperventilating on Twitter:
"@GeekChic12FF 33m Stoppit RT @LeJadalulu: Ok this is kind of amazing!! “@KrisbianDiary: wooah, cool :) RT @DornanFans: MY GOOOOOOD!!!"
Well, you get the point.
"On Jan. 25, the studio will begin to debut these extra large billboards, featuring Irish actor Jamie Dornan as the kinky, domineering billionaire, in five locations around the country. The campaign kicks off the countdown to the film’s opening on Valentine’s Day weekend 2015," writes Entertainment Weekly.
The locations are:
New York (Grand St. & 6th Ave)
Los Angeles (Wilshire Blvd. & Gayley)
Chicago (LaSalle & Hubbard)
San Francisco (Mission St. & 6th)
Grey’s own hometown of Seattle (1st St. & Wall St.)
We're pretty sure FSOG fans will be flocking to these locations starting tomorrow. So look for plenty of Instagrams in front of Mr. Grey himself.
FSOG opens Feburary 14, 2015.
