'Fifty Shades of Grey': First Character Photos!

Along with the sad news that the movie has been pushed to Valentine's Day 2015 {booooo!} EW has given us the first character photos: http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20483133_20754880,00.html. I'm not exactly thrilled with them. It has nothing to do with Jamie or Dakota. I just think the photos themselves are badly staged. I've seen candid paparazzi photos that make Jamie Dornan look more like Christian Grey than these do. :(

What do you guys think?

I really wish there was a way for him to have scruff. He was awesome in OUAT so hopefully the direction and writing doesn't make it bad (like Twilight — as much as I am a huge fan of Twilight...).

I think they could have done a better job with staging for sure. However, I will say that I've not been the biggest fan of Dakota in this movie, but she fits the role a bit better with brunette hair. But wow... Valentine's Day 2015? Bummer! That's a long way out still...

Yes I totally agree about Dakota. I still don't think she's petite enough, or maybe not naive looking enough. But her darker hair helps. The staging is just so off. And I keep looking at them wanting Jamie to move out of the shadows.  I really think that the poses/staging/photographer is to blame for these falling somewhat flat.
