Fans of the Fifty Shades of Grey series might get to experience a virtual reality set in the world of the films!
Fifty Shades Darker director James Foley revealed recently that VR technology is being used for some of the film's marketing material.
"Yeah, there's marketing materials for behind-the scenes [of 'Fifty Shades Darker'], where after we finished shooting for the day, the actors would stay over and VR people would re-create a facsimile of the scene," Foley said this month at the VR on the Lot discussion at Paramount, via Deadline.
It's not clear exactly what scenes from Fifty Shades Darker might be used for marketing material, but many fans will likely want to see all angles of some of the film's more sensual scenes.
Don't expect either Fifty Shades Darker or Fifty Shades Freed to be seen through a VR experience, but Foley did tease that moviegoers should expect such an experience years from now as cinema continues to grow as a medium.
"My own personal instinct is that cinema is going to move to VR because it's an extension of the visual language," he explained. "For myself, watching the material they generated expanded my brain."
Meanwhile, star Jamie Dornan, who plays Christian Grey in the film franchise, has said that he felt much more comfortable on set for Darker and Freed than the first film.
"I think when you're making the first film of any franchise there is a lot of pressure in terms of setting a tone and the way it's shot and the way it's played and finding your feet with it," Dornan explained to Entertainment Tonight. "It was very strange that I came into that job six weeks before they started filming, which is totally unheard of in a franchise of that size -- and not the way you want to go into any job, really. This time I felt I had a lot more time on my hands. And the pressure seemed to be off a bit with every department because the first one made so much money. Everyone was in a better place about it. So it was definitely a better experience."
Fifty Shades Darker premieres in theaters on Feb. 11, 2017.
