First there was the “fan screening” at New York City’s famed Ziegfeld Theater, but now we have the real deal. The world premiere screening in Berlin where the superlatives to describe onscreen hotness are being dutifully trotted out.

Yes we all know what ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is all about. To say it involves a man, a woman, and various stage props and a room painted red sums up the basics. But much can be done with such basics, or at least that’s what theatergoers are counting on.

Meanwhile, the stars of the movie made their red carpet appearance. Posing for cameras were Jamie Dornan, the Christian Grey of the big screen and Dakota Johnson, the Anastasia Steele character. Actors for sure, and as such, the scrutiny is over fashion choices and body language.

Dakota Johnson looks ultra chic in a figure hugging long black dress with the plunging neckline, and Jamie Dornan was also attired in black. Also walking the red carpet; the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ trilogy author E.L. James and her husband Niall Leonard and director Sam Taylor-Johnson and her husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Jamie Dornan‘s wife, actress Amelia Warner, also attended.

For those who remember 20th century history, Berlin is a fitting place, as it was the nexus of German Expressionism and daring decadence back in the 1920s, out of which such stars as Marlena Dietrich rose to international fame. Well nowadays fame is much, much different. While it’s exciting to imagine Dietrich on Instagram, we don’t have to imagine what ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is like as it’s all over social media, trending everywhere from Twitter to Snapchat to the old stalwart Facebook.

The reviews are in, by the way, and they are decidedly mixed, with Metacritic, Rotten Tomatoes and other such aggregators ranking the movie at a solid and less than exciting average.
