Jamie And Dakota's Close Friendship Make Sex Scenes 'Much Easier'


Jamie Dornan Dakota Johnson

When you go into a film series like that of 'Fifty Shades Darker', you have to expect that there's going to be a lot of sex scenes - and not just as a sideline. They are not a great many actors' favourite thing to shoot, but for Jamie Dornan, his connection with his co-star got him through it time and time again.

Jamie DornanJamie Dornan stars alongside Dakota Johnson in 'Fifty Shades Darker'

With bright lights shining, the careful scrutiny of the director and cinematographer, and beefy sound guys eating sandwiches in the background, you can understand why intimate scenes are never the most fun bits to shoot of a movie - especially if you happen to be in a relationship. However, 'Fifty Shades Darker' is branded as an erotic thriller, so there was no room for awkwardness between Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson who played Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the film.

Marianne Lane is ready for a relaxing European vacation, re-energising after a particularly busy time in her rockstar career with her younger filmmaker boyfriend Paul on the sun-kissed Sicilian island of Pantelleria. While enjoying their break, however, Marianne gets news of her record producer former boyfriend Harry bringing along his daughter Penelope for a visit. She's thrilled at seeing her old friend again and invites him and his daughter to stay with them, to the great displeasure and suspicion of Paul. Marianne and Harry's close relationship incites a bubbling pit of jealousy within Paul, especially when it becomes clear that Harry wants to replace him in Marianne's life. There's tension between everyone, and when Penelope begins to take an interest in Paul, it seems all relationships are forced to a breaking point that none of them can control.

Black Mass Trailer


Whitey Bulger has had the FBI under his thumb for too long, and now people are starting to notice. How can a criminal mastermind responsible for every major offence in the city pass by seemingly unnoticed for an entire lifetime? It's true he landed in Alcatrez at a young age, but the older the more dangerous he becomes; a kingpin of the South Boston criminal underworld who escaped justice by informing authorities of all movements of the rival gang, the Italian Mafia, as suggested by his most useful contact and friend John Connolly. But the Irish Winter Hill Gang is growing ever more powerful, and Bulger's feelings of invincibility lead to more and more murders and destruction. It's time he was stopped, but finding him is not going to be easy.

Continue: Black Mass Trailer

Black Mass - Teaser Trailer


Irish-American criminal mastermind Whitey Bulger was arguably one of the most dangerous men in America before his arrest in 2011 at the age of 81. He'd already spent time in Alcatrez as a much younger man, having spent a lot of time on the streets of South Boston. However, by the 70s he proved to be the FBI's best tool in controlling organised crime within the country, and he was eventually persuaded by his friend John Connolly to be their informant in all workings of the rival Italian Mafia. However, it's not safe business being both a highly respected gangster and a police informant, and while much of his activity is being largely ignored as he rises to become top of the Irish Winter Hill Gang, it seems he is gaining too many killings and dodgy dealings under his belt to go unnoticed.

E.L. James Dakota Johnson

Yesterday Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James took part in a Twitter Q&A session that managed to go downhill so fast, it made Robin Thicke’s experience last year look like a total love-in. Sitting in Twitter’s UK headquarters, the author invited fans (and everyone else) to ask her anything, using the hashtag AskELJames.

E.L. JamesAuthor E.L. James has taken part in a twitter Q &A.

But the Q &A session quickly descended in to chaos as the hashtag was taken over by users who weren’t exactly interested in asking the author about her creative process. Some took the chance to call out the author on her writing skills, with one user tweeting, ‘No question: Just, as a fellow author, thank you for proving to me that you can get anything published, no matter how awful.’
