Forbes Doesn’t Think 50 Shades of Grey Will Do for Charlie Hunnam What Twilight Did for Robert Pattinson

Fans are angry. They didn’t get their perfect leading man. Pointless petitions are getting thousands of signatures. The backlash is strong. “He’s so ugly, eww!”, “That’s now how he is described in the books!”, “That is not leading man material!”, “HIM?!”. If that sounds familiar is because Charlie Hunnam’s casting as Christian Grey is exactly what Robert Pattinson faced six years ago when he was announced for the role of Edward Cullen. If you were here back in the day, you remember how fans were pissed that Henry Cavill (now The Man of Steel) didn’t get to play their favorite vampire. Fans were pretty verbal and brutal on the Internet, and Rob was very aware of that. Fans mocked everything, from his face, to his hair, if you can believe it, they were not having any of it and did try to make people change their minds and recast the role. But it all changed as soon as they saw Rob in full Edward costume. Fast-forward six years and five movies later, and fans adore Robert, they see him as the perfect Edward and Rob is one of the most popular young leading men in Hollywood, with a big cialis ad two bathtubs Dior contract and a massive fortune of his own, all in big part thanks to Twilight and braving that initial backlash with the sense of humor he is known for. But according to Forbes, while 50 Shades will be a good career booster for Charlie Hunnam, he will probably not make as much money as Robert did, because this time, no teenage audience will be able to watch the movie.
Universal and author E.L. James chose Labor Day to make a major casting announcement about the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation. Charlie Hunnam, best known for the FX TV show Sons of Anarchy, will play Christian Grey, the sexy older man in the trilogy. It’s a huge coup for Hunnam who has been acting for a long time but has yet to land a role that will catapult him to the lever of A-list movie star. Grey could finally be that role. Hunnam has a better chance of becoming a franchise star with Fifty Shades of Grey. James has sold more cialis generic fast shipping than 70 million copies of her books. We recently ranked her as one of the top-earning celebrities with an estimated $95 million brought in between June 2012 and June 2013. If Unversal can harness that fan enthusiasm, the movie should be a hit. With director Sam Taylor-Johnson and stars Hunnam and Dakota Johnson (daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson) Universal is clearly keeping the budget low. And although the millions of women who read the book will likely flock to movie theaters, the film cialis and smoking is sure to have an R rating which is always a buy cialis for daily use box office challenge. The movie likely won’t attract teen boys or young girls who can boost the box office of a film like Twilight or The Hunger Games. So although the movies will likely give Hunnam a po co jest viagra serious career boost, they won’t make him the next Robert Pattinson. Unless the first film is a runaway hit, Universal will likely be loath to boost future budgets too much to ensure that the films turn some serious profit. That means that they will do all they can

to avoid paying Hunnam that massive amounts of money Pattinson was earning by the end of the Twilight series.

As a Twilight fan I’m a little biased, but at the same time we all know how desperately studios want to duplicate Twilight’s financial success with little results. It’s just not something that happens very often: small budget, huge profits. Unknown actors become global super stars overnight. I think studios and actors alike would be happier not trying, for the moment, to make the next Twilight. Summit won the lottery with that one. But the 50 Shades cast is definitely as passionate as the Twilight fans were back in the day, so who knows. What do you guys think?

    A more appropriate comparison would be that ’50 Shades of Grey’ will be for Charlie Hunnam what ‘Legends of the Fall’ was for Brad Pitt. I think that is a more appropriate comparison than Twilight. This will catapult Hunnam to adult sex symbol (so teens will love him anyway, like they once loved Pitt, even if they can’t get into the movie).
