50 Shades of Grey Release Date Pushed Back

50 shades

If you need plans for Valentine’s Day 2015…here ya go. Universal Pictures and Focus Features announced Wednesday that the release date for 50 Shades of Grey has been pushed back to Feb. 15, 2015.

The highly anticipated big-scren adaptation was originally slated for a Aug. 1, 2014 release. However, production had to be pushed back after Charlie Hunnam dropped out from playing lead character, Christian Grey.

The Sons of Anarchy star was replaced by Jamie Dornan fairly quickly, and the Irish actor will now star alongside Dakota Johnson, who will take on the role of Anastasia Steele.
