The new 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' movie is going to involve virtual reality so maybe don't watch it with Mom.
The second installment of in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie franchise, Fifty Shades Darker, is set to be released in February 2017, and rumor has it that this time, things could get awkward. (Well, even more awkward than before.) According to Deadline, marketing materials for the new film are going to involve virtual reality. Yep. Might want to avoid watching those with Mom.
Fifty Shades Darker director James Foley told Deadline that the marketing materials involve virtual reality versions of scenes from the film. "...After we finished shooting for the day, the actors would stay over and VR people would re-create a facsimile of the scene,” he said.
You know, just in case it wasn't uncomfortable enough to watch those sexy scenes with your friends and family, now you'll be able to watch them with a high tech, 360-degree view. So much better!
Though Foley says he believes that eventually "cinema is going to move to VR because it’s an extension of the visual language," the technology wasn't available to use VR in the actual film, and probably won't even be available in time for the franchise's third installment, Fifty Shades Freed, which is set to be released in 2018.
"This all needs to be reinvented," Foley said of transitioning from traditional cinema to virtual reality.
