(MOVIE) SM Cinemas snub R-18 “Fifty Shades of Grey” Opening TODAY!

Two relatively unknown actors – Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson – portray the much-coveted roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Focus Feature’s film adaptation of the runaway bestseller, “Fifty Shades of Grey.” And both found overnight stardom in the process as the film is expected to be a global blockbuster.


Rated R-18 (Strictly for Adults) by the MTRCB, the film will be shown without jump cuts but several frames will contain blurs and blocks, covering delicate body parts.Sadly, SM Cinemas wont show any R-18 movies classified by MTRCB.

There are five ratings for movies: General Audience (G), which means all ages are admitted; PG-13, children below 13 years old should be accompanied by an adult; R-13, strictly for 13 years and older; R-18, strictly for 18 years and older, and X, not for public viewing. So avid fans of these trilogy who loves to watch movies in SM Cinemas might have to wait for the DVD release (or if beyond legal basis, Torrent download, at least here in the Philippines)

Fifty Shades of Grey” explores the burgeoning relationship between enigmatic 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey and sexually uninitiated college senior Anastasia Steele. It is a love story, but a provocative one that also deals with limits, and particularly, sexual limits—setting them, respecting them, overstepping them—and all of the exploration that can take place therein.

Edgar C. Tejerero, said they do not show R-18 movies as part of the business principle of the Sy Family to offer wholesome and family-oriented entertainment. Fifty Shades of Grey will be released on Feb. 11 in any Ayala Malls and Robinson Malls and other movie houses nationwide.


Director Sam Taylor-Johnson was quite moved to see the actors’ connection and knew she’d found the perfect Christian to her Ana. (Johnson had originally been paired with Charlie Hunnam, but the actor departed the film prior to the start of principal photography). The director says: “Jamie Dornan is a fantastic, perfectly pitched Christian Grey. He brings a lot to this role—an elegance to the character, but he also brings exactly what Christian is, which is that slight one-step-removed mystery. That’s because Jamie has that innately in him already. He’s an extraordinary actor, and he plays Christian Grey exactly as he should be played.”

Opening across the Philippines on today, Feb. 11, Fifty Shades of Grey” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures. The film has been classified Rated R-18 (Strictly for Adults) by the MTRCB.
