The pair teamed together for another round of S&M romance in 'Fifty Shades Darker'.
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.

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.

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
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 invited the Twitterverse to ask her anything on Monday and you can probably guess how this one turned out.
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.
Author 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.’

At the stroke of midnight, ‘Grey’ hits bookshelves and fans can’t wait.
Fifty Shades of Grey fans might need some help restraining themselves tonight, as E.L. James’ latest book Grey hits shelves at midnight. The spin-off book is a retelling of Christian and Anastasia Steele’s early story, but this time we're hearing it from the point of view of Mr. Grey himself.
Get ready to hear the story of Fifty Shades of Grey from Christian’s perspective.
"The book is written from Christian's point of view, need I say more?” Paul Bogaards, a spokesman for publisher Penguin Random House told the New York Daily News. Bogaards added that he had ‘no concerns’ over wether retelling the story from Christian’s perspective might prove to be too raunchy even for Fifty Shades fans.
The new novel is released next Thursday (June 18th), but a copy of it has gone missing, leading to fears of leaks.
A copy of the eagerly awaited new Fifty Shades of Grey book by E.L. James has been stolen, a little over a week before its scheduled publication date.
