Love me like you do! If you don't have someone to love you like Ana or Christian, this "50 Shades of Grey" quiz is the one for you! Can you handle the intensity?
In 2011, author E.L. James released her best-selling novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey." First starting off as a Twilight fanfiction story on the internet, the story then blossomed beyond its URL to a spot on multiple best-seller lists. After the release of the final novel in the trilogy, the novel made its way to the movie screen in 2015.
Starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, the film follows a recent college graduate who begins a BDSM relationship with a rich businessman. From the storyline to the actors to the soundtrack, moviegoers were hooked. Were you singing along to the Weeknd's "Earned It?" You might've been belting out the chorus to "Love Me Like You Do." Did the film leave you reminded of Beyonce's "Haunted?" If you're here, that means Christian Grey was just the kind of intensity you needed. How well do you remember the drama?
What was Anastasia's major? How did Christian like to exercise? What was the name of his helicopter? From 514 pages and over two hours of film, can you remember all the shades or will you be left heartbroken before the sequel?
Let's find out if you'll make it to Fifty Shades Darker!
You have to admit, it probably looks good on a driver's license.
Hmmm... is he trying to outrun his troubled past?
Her full name is Kate Kavanaugh.
Given that, we really expected her dialogue to be sharper.
Seriously, dude -- you've never heard of a guy named William Shakespeare?
Christian says he would have thought Jane Austen.
Fortunately, Christian filches the list and emails answers directly to Kate.
Ana borrows Kate's car to drive to the interview, but she does have her own wheels.
This also allows Christian to make some eyebrow-raising purchases.
He also asks for the rope and masking tape, but not a coverall.
He photographs Christian for Kate's article.
Jose's unwanted pass comes a little bit later.
Just think, if things had gone differently, it could have been Ana's roommate getting flogged!
TBH, the unknown girl would really have spiced things up for men din the audience.
Elliot was played by "True Blood" actor Luke Grimes.
Christian, naturally, lives in a penthouse.
Hey, it's impressive that Christian knows the number right off the top of his head.
The room is also known as the red room of pain, though the phrase isn't used in the movie.
If Anastasia had deliberately gotten Kate sick, we'd really have to re-evaluate what we've thought about her to this point!
Christian was this woman's submissive.
Neither Ana nor Christian appear to touch them, however.
"Fifty Shades" struggled for respect -- let's face it, William Shatner would have sunk it.
It was called "Master of the Universe," and E.L. James wrote it under the pen name "Snowdragon's Icequeen."
Ana never signs the contract, yet she and Christian go ahead with several sexual encounters.
Christian expresses his displeasure by dragging Ana away from the dinner table for some intense conversation.
Ana apparently dislikes the humidity, just as Bella does in "Twilight."
Christian's ability to pilot several vehicles underscores his love of control.
It isn't until late in the film that Christian explains that his mother was a prostitute and crack addict.
The role was a sharp contrast to Ehle's super-competent characters in "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Contagion."
Ana has asked for the whipping so she'll understand "the worst" their relationship has to offer.
It's Ana's way of saying goodbye -- the film ends abruptly, with the characters' relationship in disrepair.
Taylor-Johnson began her career in high-art photography before making the leap to film.
Hunnam wanted the role, but was still shooting "Sons of Anarchy."
Griffith took some flak in the media for not wanting to see "Fifty Shades" -- but can you blame her?
"Grey" is the novel that tells the story from Christian's point of view.
