Though box-office take took a dive after the opening week, R-rated sexy flick Fifty Shades of Grey has proven to a major hit. But what if it had a good ol’ superhero twist?
One intrepid VFX guru decided Fifty Shades of Grey needed a little more Batman (doesn’t everything?), so he mashed up the film’s sexy trailer with footage from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Oddly enough, it kind of fits, and the big reveal of Batman’s private room is solid gold. If nothing else, this tosses another angle or two into the formula.
The creator of the mash-up, Josh Meeter, said the idea came to him naturally once he heard what Fifty Shades of Grey is about. As superhero fans ourselves (duh), it’s hard to argue with Meeter’s rendition of events after hearing the synopsis: “When my wife told me what Fifty Shades of Grey was all about ... this is EXACTLY what I had imagined.”
